There are some things that just have to be part of a blog. Good content is obviously the most important aspect. In addition to that, however, there are some elements that make a blog successful, easy to read and will help you achieve your goals faster.
In this post, I'll go through some elements I consider essential to a blog.
Yesterday, the first commercial Joomlablogger e-book was released. Blogging with Joomla!® is a 287 page e-book (delivered as a downloadable PDF, which covers a lot of information on how to blog with our favorite CMS.
Even if the book is written with a focus on blogging, the information can be used by anyone who wants to improve how they build Joomla sites.
I have worked on the book for around a year, so I'm pleased to report that the feedback has been positive so far. It seems people like the information and that they learn from it.
My friend over at Joomla Bamboo, Anthony Olsen, wrote this after reading through the e-book:
Kristoffer Sandven is at the leading edge when it comes to using Joomla for blogging. The detail covered in his Blogging with Joomla book is simply mind-boggling, which makes it a must for new or even seasoned Joomla users.

There's so much information in this book it would be good resource for someone looking to build ANY type of Joomla site. It's a great investment for anyone looking for guidance with setting up their Joomla powered blog site, written by one of Joomla's best bloggers!
Go get your copy today - it sells for only €9.95. I set the price as low possible so it would be affordable to a larger audience. It's my hope that it will inspire and help many Joomla users around the world.

As you know, I’m blogging with Joomla myself. I find the Joomla platform to be a really good platform for blogging. But is it right for you?
In this post I explore some reasons why I think you should use Joomla as a blogging platform and why it might be a good choice.
If you're a Joomla addict like me, it seems only natural to use Joomla as a blogging platform. I have seen some blogs about Joomla that are built with Wordpress. To me, that's quite silly. If you're writing about how to use Joomla, you should use it for blogging as well, in my opinion.
For years, people have been asking for real remote blogging support for Joomla.
Remote blogging, or remote publishing, is when you use a desktop software package (Windows Live Writer) or plug-in (like ScribeFire for Firefox) to create and edit your posts.
When you're done, you add the post to the Joomla web site directly, without even logging in to the Joomla administrator.
In this tutorial I'll show you how to set up the blog editor in the ScribeFire blog editor for use with Joomla. This way, you have an even easier way of publishing articles to your Joomla! blog.
