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
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.
