How to Start Your Own Blog in Less than 15 Minutes

Blogging is not something you should be afraid of. No detailed planning is required either. However, there are some things you need to decide. Since these blogging service providers give you so many options in terms of templates and color themes, you will have to make these decisions yourself.

Here's a quick guide on what to think about before creating your blog:

  • Theme: Determine what you will write about or the nature of the content you will share with your readers. It mainly depends on your interest. Blog topics can be chosen from politics, poetry, arts, current affairs, or just about anything. You can stick to one topic or you can choose to write about whatever worries you on a daily basis. Since this is your web magazine, you can make it as flexible as possible in every aspect.
  • Blogging provider: Next, you need to decide which blogging service provider you want to use. It depends on what kind of reviews you get about them from friends and acquaintances, or anything else you may have read about them online. If not, you can always try something out and see if you like it. You can try any of these popular sites: Blogger.com, WordPress.com, Typepad, Blogagotchi.com, Livejournal.com, JournalHome.com, TheDiary.org, Mindsay.com, Blog.com, Diaryland.com and Blogdrive . com or Xanga.com.
  • Templates: A wide range of templates will be provided on any blog service you decide to start your blog with. Select the one you prefer or like.
  • Freebies: The advantage of these blogging service providers is that they make your blogging experience as dynamic and interactive as possible. It allows you to install add-on features which include buttons, images, image blogs and chalks, tag boards like myshoutbox.com, guest cards, guestbooks, chat boxes comments for readers' thoughts and opinions, etc.
  •  Additional Features: These cool features may not be free. By paying a price, you can enjoy it.
  • Nature of the blog: You need to decide who should read your blog – whether you want it to be read only by a select circle or open to everyone. It will mainly depend on the content.
  • Layout: Again, there will be a wide range of choices in terms of layout and color combinations.
  • Content: You can pick a specific topic and write about it continuously, or just choose any topic at random as it interests you. You can try posting the content for a while and see what kind of response you get and adjust or adjust accordingly.
  • The Blogging Circle: Blogging is a great way to connect with people around the world. You can browse and visit other people's blogs. Don't spam the comment section, but write a real comment if you have something to say about a particular post.
  • Skins: You can customize and personalize your blog as much as you want. With software like Photoshop, you can create your own shapes and make your blog attractive while reflecting your personality.
  • Publish: Finally, when you are done setting your configuration and preferences, and choosing what content to publish, you need to publish the content. Do not forget however to send a link to your blog to your friends and acquaintances so that they come to visit you.

Once you start your blog, you will notice that it barely takes fifteen minutes to do. Maintaining a blog is easier. Here are some tips that will help keep your blog running smoothly:

  • Refresh: Refresh frequently or visitors may stop visiting your blog. It will also give you more confidence to produce more well-crafted posts in the future.

  • Topic: If you have a blog on a topic, you can search for other blogs of the same type and create your own network.
