A friend recently asked me how I started my own blog. Good question!
Before you even think about starting a website, figure out what it is you’re wanting to do. You could start a blog, manage a forum, sell your vintage tube socks, the sky’s the limit!
I decided on a blog because that best suited how I was going to use it. I write posts, categorize them by subject matter, and publish them. This doesn’t mean I can’t change my blog into a forum later, but it does give me a direction to start moving in.
