Blog Preliminaries

Published May 7, 2007 by Dr. Tammy Powley

Before jumping into the blogosphere and starting your own blog, it’s a good idea to do a little preliminary brainstorming first. Below are a few questions to consider before starting your first blog: 

  • What is my purpose for blogging?
  • What type of blog do I want to write? Filter? K-blog? Journal? Combination?
  • Who do I want to host my blog? Assuming you want free hosting, options might be or (for example).
  • What do I want to blog about? Can you word this topic into phrase, tagline, or subtitle?
  • What would I like the title of my blog to be? (This can affect your URL.)
  • Do I want my blog to be public or limit it to a select group who will need a password to access it?
  • Would I at some point want to earn some revenue from my blog?

By answering these questions before you start up a blog, you can save yourself a lot of time and thoughtfully create a blog you will enjoy blogging on regularly.
