I guess my first initial post (lifestyle blog UK) was to break the ice, hopefully I did so without sounding pompous. Anyway, I thought I would introduce you to my new fortnightly topic called: How to start blogging.
As you may have noticed, I have the layout sorted (kind of), and do not have much content. Thus, I thought why not let my readers/other bloggers see how it is when starting a new blog, and essentially how to start blogging in the first place.
Why a topic on how to start blogging?
I really need to stop with these self-created questions. Nevertheless, I thought that I would document my progress. I mentioned prior I worked on setting up websites, with my first actual website being launched in 2003. It was a mess. But it had the standard sidebar, and some pretty
awesome questionable graphics. I can imagine the Geocities users of that generation were extremely jealous of my photoshopped top bar, and I do remember receiving loads a few compliments on forums.
Without sidetracking and rambling on, how to start blogging will explore the options I face when starting a new blog. Yes – I’m hardly one to talk, as I’ve pretty much setup the layout and some social media channels, but theres a lot more to it when starting a new blog.
If you’re thinking…
Why on earth would you create such a lame subject, everyone knows how to start blogging. Then be warned theres more to it than opening a laptop and typing mindless words. Or setting up a tumblr and reposting some shitty gif’s. Starting a new blog can be tedious at most, and though there is no systematic process to it, to start blogging takes time and plenty of patience.
The amount of nonsense on the web is excruciating
sure, the drivel on the web will increase and grow exponentially, but then again there are a ton of sites many couldn’t live without. I know that this new blog instalment will not end up in the cesspits of shit content, but even if it did it will mutate ninja-turtles style to sit amongst the pantheon of bloggers.
