Dear T2T: I really want to start a blog, but I don’t know where to start. What are the best ways to go about this? — Bloggaliscious Wannabe

Response No. 1:

The best way to start a blog is to explore the Internet. There are many websites made specifically for blogging. For example some of the blogging websites are mycyc.com ,Wordpress.com and there are so many more. All you really have to do is go to any search engine and type in best blogging website, whichever one attracts your attention the most is probably the one meant for you. For instance ehow.com is a blogging website for how to do things like “how to create a painting” and such. The more people that view your blog on that site and respond, the website gives you a small amount of money. Depending on the amount of blogs you write per month, day, etc. also how the readers show their amount of interest in your blogs. There are other sites that run that way too. There are many different websites that teach you how to build a blog, but make sure to write about a specific genre keep it at that. Write what makes you comfortable and be able to express yourself. Don’t feel intimidated by famous bloggers because the more you put into it, the better you’ll become. Hope we helped.

Response No. 2:

Well, I suggest social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter to start. Use these websites to market/broadcast your desired image or idea. Personally, I suggest making a Facebook group to get started. Later, you can advance to more complicated sites such as Tumblr. Tumblr is the perfect site for your desire to start a blog. This website’s intention is literally to give a blog to whoever wants one. Using a simplistic layout scheme, Tumblr allows audiences from across the globe to follow your blog.
