I learned how to blog from a guy who sat across from me at the LA Daily News. His name was Greg Hernandez and he blogged constantly. This garnered a lot of attention, which led to blog envy (on my part). When I launched a blog at the paper we became instant rivals but also best blogger friends.
We shared tips, compared stats (5,430,499 wins for him, 19 for me) and learned from each other. He showed me how to embed videos and overcome my fear of telling everyone I know about my blog. I showed him how to align photos.
Now, he is blogging independently just like me. is all things pop culture through a gay man’s eyes.
And so our mostly good-natured rivalry continues. I have one month on him, but no doubt he will catch up to me quickly. Good luck, Greg!
