February 23, 2011

If you hang around this blog, or Blog Azeroth, you’ve probably heard my spiel about blogging. You know, how it’s great for improving your writing skills, for boosting confidence, for reflecting about stuff, for giving your skin that sexy, healthy glow you’ve always wanted. If you haven’t heard it yet, you will at some point.

As a result of my lengthy ramblings about blogging and my tendency to frequent corners of the internet that encourage such discourses, I get asked lot of questions about blogging. The same questions often come up (apparently us bloggers all share the same worries when we’re first starting out) so I thought I’d compile the more popular ones (and ask on Twitter if anyone had special requests) and, because I’m nice like that, my answers to them.

As I was trying to give each question the attention it deserved, I realized pretty fast that I had way too much content for one post. Turns out blogging is such a mysterious and complicated endeavour that an FAQ cannot fit comfortably into the ideal 500 to 1000 word length (see below) so we’ve got two parts: Part 1 on getting started and part 2 with all you wanted to know about content.

You get part 1 today and you might get part 2 tomorrow or Friday IF YOU ALL BEHAVE.
