Blogging tip

Once in awhile I'm going to post some blogging tips. I've done some workshops on this topic and so I thought I'd share some of information here.

What is a blog?
A blog is a a website with the software that allows you to put entries by date. So it allows  you to have a website without a complicated website.

Before you start blogging think on:

  • Why you want to blog?
  • Who is the audience?
  • What do you want to achieve?

Writers usually have blogs for the following reasons:
  • To connect with readers
  • To create a 'brand'
  • To share journey
  • Publicity

I started blogging for practice, to have an online presence as a writer, to support authors and promote their works, to chronicle my journey, and to have fun. I have found my voice by doing this. So I personally don't think it's too soon to start a blog if you are an author. 

Remember though, you have to at least be comfortable to blog. Is a blog what you need? Could a news update on a website be all you require?

These are just a few of the questions to think on.

Happy blogging!
