Blogging for beginners

blogging4beginnersBeen showing a colleague today how to set up a blog. It’s so exciting to see people dive in and explore the wonderful world of the blogosphere. There are lots of blog hosting services (places where your blog will live) to start blogging on. The most popular ones are Blogger, WordPress and TypePad but there are many more. I use WordPress, it’s easy to use and get started, just sign up and experiment. I am not a expert blogger but here are some tips i have come across recently that i have found useful …

– Keep it simple – Start with an easy to use blogging tool like WordPress

–  Pick topics that you are passionate about –  you’ll find people with similar interests to connect with.

Interact – Make sure your blog has a comments feature – when someone leaves a comment email them or leave a reply.

Think about the purpose of your blog – Decide what you will and won’t write about and stick to it.

Read other blogs and link to them – Blogging connects people thinking through similar issues.  Link to them, add your own ideas, leave comments. Technorati is the place to start – have a look at the top 100 list and subscribe to feeds you find interesting.
