How To Start A Blog in 5 Steps

This is the tip I gave to a good friend when she asked me how to get started with blogging:
  1. Think about what you want to say and formulate it in one sentence, maybe something like "A Colombian's Thoughts about Sweden, Relationships and Jewellery",
  2. Choose a simple name for your blog (preferably easy to say and spell)
  3. sign up with a blogging platform, for instance here.
  4. When you blog do it regularly, once every two weeks, once a week, every day, doesn't matter, but keep the pace.
  5. And you must send me the URL when you are up and running! :-)
More tips on blogging can be found on fellow Ghanablogging member Oluniyi's blog, here.

@Mac-Jordan, do repost!
@Nana Yaw, lately my passion has been to share the passion :-)

Smiling at "my passion has been to share the passion" and also that your photo makes me look darker than I am in real-life. :)

Keep up the good work.

These are 5 great tips on how to start blogging.

The key to successful blogging is by spending time frequently and updating your blog

Funny you recommended wordpress but your using Blogger.. =) Anyways both of them are great blogging platform.

I definitely have to say - a paid, self-hosted blog is the way to go. It is always annoying having to tell your friends "yea, my blog is at ...blogspot.com or ...wordpress.com". It really isn't that impressive if you can’t OWN your blog.

I have setup well over 30 blogs by now and have gone through the technical setup process so many times I could do it in my sleep : ). If you would like me to set it up for ya, I do it for free at http://www.how-to-start-a-blog.org.

Happy Blogging!
