how to start a blog

I agree with most of Phil Windley’s ideas on how to start a blog. With this blog I don’t follow #4 very well, but that kind of conflicts with #6. There are so many things I’m interested in it’s hard to just pick one subject area and stick to it.

  1. It sounds like he is speaking about blogs more in the original sense rather than journal blogs or combination ones.

  2. And by picking a topic so focused as Enterprise Computing he’s really decreased the odds of gaining the interest of new readers. I discuss at least five different topics on my blog and I think my readers are pretty dedicated. I think it’s better to choose several unrelated topics and dedicate equal time to each one. It’s worked for me, I think.

  3. 4 and 6 seemed contradictory to me too. As “technically challenged” I’m not even sure what “Enterprise Computing” entails. Anyway, I picked a theme of conversation and discuss topics that are pertinent to my life and attempt to engage others. Anyway, I thank you for the post – I thought it had some good points that can help me as a new blogger.

    BTW – When I added my new site to the “Ecosystem” I found that I am still a “Flippery Fish.”
