Blogging - Tips For Starting Your First Blog - Web 2.0 - Blogs

So you'd like to start a blog but don't know where to begin? Here are some tips to start you on your merry blogging way.

1.Start with a free site such as Wordpress.com, Blogger.com, Blogspot.com or Livejournal.com. They're slightly different in how each one works/looks so it's worth checking them all out. Since they're free, you can easily sign up with all of them and decide which one suits you best.

2. Once you've signed up, pick a template that suits your "voice". Free blog sites offer a multitude of great templates so you don't even have to think about graphics, but you will want to make it fit with the content you plan on writing. So if you're a girlie girl talking about girlie stuff, you likely won't want a high-tech gamer type template for your blog.

3. What to write Some bloggers have a particular subject in mind, others simply report their daily events. If you want to build a following, it's best to concentrate on one main subject. This'll help search engines find you and create focus for what to write (because it can be difficult to come up with interesting entries sometimes). That said, within your general subject you're free to post about anything else going on in your life, but having a central theme will help you gain readership in the long run.

4. Try to keep current. Some people have enough rolling around in their heads to add a new entry every day, while some post once a week or even more sporadically. My advice is to post at least once a week, otherwise your audience may forget about your blog, fabulous as it may be. And believe me, it's no fun seeing all those "Comments:0" underneath your posts.

That's it for this installment. Next time we'll talk about how to get readers to find your blog and ways to promote it. Until then, happy writing!
