My interview feature - Six Of The Best - has been running for the better part of a year and has already profiled more than 20 distinctly different voices of the blogosphere (including myself, it must be said), garnering praise from readers.

Would you like to be counted among their number?
If you write a blog, or host a podcast, I'd like to hear from you... whatever you talk about; from celebrity gossip and comic books, to sports memorabilia and vintage house renovations, .
I'm always looking to celebrate the infinite possibilities of blogging, by profiling as broad a cross-section of bloggers as possible, highlighting the wide variety of subjects that get people talking.
This is all part of my drive to be an advocate for the art of blogging, helping authors promote their sites while simultaneously sharing good practice and wisdom with fellow, and aspiring, bloggers.
Every fortnight, I 'interview' a different blogger, asking the same six questions (see below), with the idea of not only helping promote their own work but also to encourage others to think about taking up blogging.
Of course, if you are podcaster, feel free to answer the questions anyway, substituting 'podcast' for blog...
The set questions are:
- (1) How long have been blogging, and how’d you get into it in the first place?
- (2) What do you blog about, and how frequently do you post?
- (3) How does your blog stand out from all the rest?
- (4) What’s the best (and worst) thing about blogging?
- (5) Do you have any self-imposed rules (or guidelines) for your blog?
- (6) Name one blog everyone should be reading (other than your own).
