I have to admit, my first blog isn’t what I had in mind, but the idea came to me while setting up my brand new webpage.
Before I decided to even write a blog, I did a bit of research first. First, I needed a real REASON for starting a blog, and the most pressing one is to get a web presence so that when people look for me, they can find me. Easy enough. Decision made.
Second, I needed to start my blog on a good foundation. I know there are a lot of places to host websites, so I decided to ask an expert for advice.
Luckily, I’m related to one. My lovely and talented step-daughter, Kelani Nichole, is a web expert and directed me to WordPress. I’m so glad I asked her! Everything I need is here on this site and I’m able to customize my site easily. Even though I have a computer background, I have never done any web design, and WordPress is guiding me through the process.
So far today, I have registered my domain name, selected a “theme” for my site, and I have registered it with Google, Yahoo!, and Bing so that (hopefully) people will be able to find me when they look for me!
And now we reach this moment… where I’m adding my very first post.
My current goal for this blog is to communicate what I learn regarding the writing craft. I plan to post interesting and essential tidbits regarding writing that (I hope) other writers will find useful.
