Blogging 101 – So You Want to Start a Blog?

There are many different reasons to start your own blog. You can start one to promote your company, product or service Powerline Blog. You can start blogging to update family and friends about what is going on in your life. Use a blog as a therapeutic soap box to vent about the things you don’t like or that you love. Or you could even start writing about what your dog does every day. No matter what it is that you want to blog about, there will be people that are willing and want to read it. I say go for it!

You can create your blog for free at many different places on the web. Just Google “free blogging sites” and you will be shocked at just how many sites will pop up! Some are more popular than others so be sure to check out quite a few and pick the one that works best for you. Some of those sites will even let you register your own domain name through them for an extremely cheap price per year. I’ve always said if you can get your own domain for your blog to do it. It makes you much easier to find in the sea of free sites.

The one largest mistake that I have seen with new bloggers is the only thing that they are consistent about is their inconsistency with the timing of their postings. I try to post at least a couple of times a week on my personal blog. More if time allows. This brings people back because they know that they aren’t going to become involved in your story then be abandoned.
