Blogging 101

So you want to write a blog. Where to start? Where to start? The best place to start is at the beginning. Out of all the blogs I have started, my favorite site for blogging is Blogger. Its easy to navigate and easy to tweak. The WYSIWYG design is awesome and most importantly it is so damn easy to add AdSense to it. I have tried some other sites, but most often end up on Blogger simply because I am almost always logged in to Google anyway. Where you set up your blog is your choice, but you may want to try many different sites like I did.  

2. Now that you have a site picked out you need to start blogging. Content is king and if you dont write anything what will people read when they drop in? Write a lot and write often.

c. Once you have a blog with posts in it, you may want people to read it. This isnt something that will just happen you know. You need to spend a little time promoting your work every day you possibly can. Start with Twitter or Facebook for example and let your friends know that you just published a post. BTW congrats on your new job title Mr. or Miss Publisher.    

1. There are many great ways to advertise your blog and bring traffic in to it, like for example, Twitterfeed or Webring. Joining a web ring will let readers of similar sites find you and increase your audience, and Twitterfeed will share your posts automatically to Twitter or Facebook for you with no sweat broken on your part...

3. Another way to find readers or should I say let readers find you is a Facebook page for your blog. Twitterfeed can post to the page for you again leaving you free to do more writing and less promoting.

Note: dont forget to add Adsense to your blog, even if you try affiliate programs on the side, Adsense will run itself once its installed and it pays more than any affiliate programs I have tried...

Finally, if you have a Youtube channel you can add your videos to your blog quick and easy and in fact, you can have an entire post in your blog as a Youtube video. This will not only keep your blog moving but also, keep your YT channel from collecting dust as well.
