Blogging for Middle-Aged Beginners
Blogging is basically journaling. The only difference is that instead of using pen and paper, you get to use technology. If you wish to reach a wider audience, then blogging is the more ideal medium for expressing your thoughts. If you are at a loss on what to do here are some basic information you need to know for setting up your own blog:
A blog can be anything and everything about the sun. Check out other blogs and you’ll find out different sorts on different topics. However, it need not be complicated. You can create a blog about your pets, or your hobby, or a special interest. The easiest is to of course, create a blog all about yourself. Make entries on whatever topic you wish and you can post pictures to it too. A blog can be a perfect way to keep family and friends updated with what is going on in your life.
Set up your blog. Search for free blog providers in a search engine. Choose one that would suit your needs. Make sure that it is simple and user-friendly too. You can always transfer to another blog provider once you’ve known all the ropes. If you are still unsure, you can ask someone to set it up for you and don’t forget to ask for instructions on the basics.
Now, you can start blogging! The key here is to post frequently and consistently. You don’t have to do it everyday. However, if you decide to post once a week, make sure that you do it every week. Choose a specific day to blog (such as every Wednesday). Make your blog known by sending the web address of your blog to family and friends.
Later on, you might even make money through ads. But that’s for another topic.
