Telegraph Blogging Style Guide - Recommended Reading

Telegraph UK newspaper team has written a comprehensive blogging style guide which their new writers are supposed to read before they start blogging on the Telegraph website. The guide discusses things like Handling Comments, Establishing a converation and other blog related issues/topics.
