The best tip I was given was to set a schedule and write several of them at a time. This works very well for me as I can sit down and write them and then schedule them to be published on specific dates/times. Start off slow and post once a week – consistency is key!

  2. I am just starting a blog, I’m on the first post. I’m always a little afraid of how I will sound since I’m not a professional writer. You saying to be myself helps me feel a whole lot better about having a blog. Is there a blog site that’s best for free? I started with Blogger, but I’ve heard there are others out there. Thanks for the great article!

  3. Hi Traci – you’re welcome! I would recommend WordPress as a blogging platform as well – they have a free version at wordpress.com. And don’t worry about writing like a professional – you’re just writing to share!
