People want to start their own blogs. Or at least that’s what they tell me when I say what I do for My Little Flower Shop. Sometimes they even tell me what it’s going to be about, or even the URL they’ve bought. So to all you folks, go for it! But there’s one thing you’ve got to wrap your head around before you start, and I’m going to share that.
To have a blog means writing. A lot of writing. I’m strongly encouraging everyone who tells me about their love of meerkats, collecting beer cans or scars from a childhood in community theater to go ahead and write. A blogging expert I refer to often for her wisdom, Amy Lynn Andrews recommends you write twenty posts before you so much as buy a URL- just to see if you
– have enough to say
-are truly interested in your topic
– really have the stamina to sit down and write in the quantity that it takes!
I’ve prevented myself from about three different failed blogs with that trick. And you know if you read this blog that I love to write it, but that my posting schedule isn’t flawless. So think before you blog – and if you really want it, start writing!
Be well and write well!
