Have you ever thought about starting a blog? Well, I have and in fact I tried and started two blog sites. But after a couple of posts, I just stopped posting. With all that’s been going on with my day, can’t find time to put my thoughts, experiences and ideas in writing. It was just too much of an effort and it was difficult for me to focus. So I just let it go.
Then I stumbled upon the blog of Abby Lawson Just a Girl and Her Blog and read her post How to Start a Blog, A Detailed Step by Step Guide and it inspired and enabled me and I just have to try one more time. I will not just hope my blog takes off. I will just blog and stick with it and make it happen.
Since I know very little about the technicalities of starting a blog site, I asked help from my brother to set up my site. I got a two year domain subscription and got an email address dedicated to my new blog. I read a lot of posts about blogging and watched YouTube tutorials on how to use WordPress. For me the most helpful tutorial is by WebsiteWizard.tv it was so easy to follow.
It’s a learning process for me and right now I’m working on the layout of my website. With the help of Picmonkey a free online photo editing I’m able to put watermarks on photos I would be using in my blog. I’m still researching how I could prettify my site to add a little character to it and reflect my personality.
So if you want to start a blog, my advice is first decide what you want your blog to be about and read how to guides in starting a blog. It is very helpful specially if you are not so techie like me.
That’s how it was for me and if you read this post until this part, thank you and I hope you visit my blog again.
