You CAN Start a Blog

If I can start a blog, then you can do it too! Really, it's true! I regularly have people tell me that they've thought about starting one, but they're just not sure how to go about it or what they would write about.

I knew NOTHING about blogging when I started and I started anyway! That was over 5 years and 1000 posts ago and I'm still around. If you have ever thought about starting a blog as a creative outlet, as an opportunity to practice writing, as a way to keep a record of your family, or for any other reason - I encourage you to do it! It's really not that hard to start.

I wrote a very simple post a few years ago about beginning a blog and a after a year of blogging, I wrote about 9 benefits of blogging. If you've been thinking about blogging or getting back to blogging, I also recommend reading A Blog is a Blog, No Matter How Small.

There are so many great resources now to help you start blogging! Here's a post from Amy Bayliss on How To Start Blogging. I think you should stop by my Blog Tips Pinterest board - there are plenty of helpful links there covering blogging, social media, and more. Bloggers - please share links to your fave resources in the comments for the new or soon-to-be bloggers!

If you need a little extra blogging encouragement, check out my Encouraging Bloggers series or stop by and see my friend Debi Stangeland - the Blog Cheerleader - for her Better Blogs series. I also recommend connecting with a blogger or two that you feel comfortable with. In fact, feel free to click on my Contact Me tab at the top and ask me questions if you like. I'm no expert, but I'm happy to answer you if I'm able or at least point you in the right direction!

You CAN start a blog!
