Ready To Blog?
Are you ready to take leap into a blog? If so, itís really very easy to set up a blog. The one resource I have used for all my blogs has been blogger.com. This is free, easy, and fun. There are many templates to chose from and you can customize yours if you would like.
I have used general template for my mom masterminds blog and I have customized my http://www.mommysworkingvirtually.com blog with different colors and fonts then what it came with. I also have that hosted on my own domain, but you certainly donít have to do that.
Submit Your Blog
After you create your blog you will want to submit it to blog directories to help get your blog out in front of public. Some of directories you can try are:
BlogWise - http://www.blogwise.com Blog Search Engine - http://www.blogsearchengine.com Blog Hub - http://www.bloghub.com Blog Daisey - http://www.blogdaisey.com Get Blogs - http://www.getblogs.com Is Blogs - http://www.lsblogs.com
Next, you need to add feeds to your blog. What is a feed? Good question. I donít know exact way to describe a feed nor do I have a lot of valuable information on this subject.
This is still very new to me, but I can tell you briefly what a feed does. You add a little graphic to your blog. It can be for someone's yahoo page, msn page and other ways.
When they click on that they can add your blog to their personal yahoo page. Then every time you add a new post they are alerted on their yahoo page that you have posted AND it even shows topic of post and how long ago it was posted.
This is one of best resources Iíve found in keeping people coming back to your blog. They can subscribe to it so easily and they will be automatically updated whenever you have posted. Itís pretty easy to add an RSS feed to your blog. The resource I personally use is at www.feedburner.com
