What to Do When You Want to Start Blogging
If you are interested in starting a blog, you should take the time to figure out the best way to go about it. Figure out what you want your blog to be about and what you will write about. That is the first step in starting a blogging hobby or career.
When figuring out what to blog about, ask yourself what you like to write about. You don't want to be stuck having to come up with posts for topics you don't enjoy. That is an easy way to lose interest in what you are doing.
Once you know what you want your blog to be about, you need to figure out where you want to host your blog. There are many different free options to choose from. If you don't mind spending a little bit of money you can go with a self-hosted option instead.
If you are unsure about blogging it might be best to start with a free site. If you know you want to take it further, self-hosting would be the way to go. It just depends on how much you want to put into it at first.
Once you have decided where to blog you need to set things up. You should have an about me page as well as a way for people to email you. Once you get all of that set up you can start writing.
It would be best to commit to blogging two to three times a week. Some bloggers like to blog more often and others just stick to once a week. The most important thing is to make sure you are doing it regularly.
Blogging can be a lot of fun and it is a great thing to do. You just need to make sure you commit to it. You also want to start off on the right foot.
