I really want to start a blog, and I've been thinking about it for a really long time now.
I was wondering, for those of you who have a blog, what are your tips for starters?
Also, would you recommend Wordpress or Blogspot as a platform for the blog?

Wordpress for sure, much more power and in my opinion nicer to use.
What sorts of blogging tips would you like? From what angle? I.e. how to get traffic, how to keep your audience engaged, how to make money from it?

In terms of writing - write every day to ensure you gain a consistent style and that your quality improves.
In terms of platform - I personally prefer Blogger over WordPress, but I can the appeal of the latter.
In terms of traffic - Try to get your head around SEO for your titles and tags.

Wordpress any day and everyday
My only tip would be - make sure you be consistent, with your posting style and consistency. Always have a schedule to abide by. Sooner you'll have a long archive of posts and naturally - a fair amount of SEO traffic. Install yoast's SEO word press plugin - works wonders.
Engage with other bloggers in your niche - form relationships and try to do a few guest posts on other websites/blogs with audiences smaller or larger than your own.
Build a list! : I.e an optin form on your sidebar or below your posts to allow people to subscribe to your blog for updates and/or a newsletter that you may wish to create.
Have an RSS feed: so people can subscribe to get updates everytime you make a post..
