But the last question was about what would my advice be for someone who wants to start a blog. And I could rattle off a whole bunch of stuff about domain names and twitter and commenting and community and blog buddies (all of which I did!) But you know what you really need to do?
Write your way into your own blog. Don’t think about it, just write. You will probably end up a million miles away from where you thought you were going or what you thought your blog was going to be. But the only way* to start writing a blog is to write yourself into your voice, into your community and into yourself.
*That is poetic licence because it sounds better. I’m sure there are a million ways to start a blog.
This week Singular Insanity wrote about personal blogs and blogging advice in much more detail than I did.
