Blogging – You Have To Start Somewhere

by Martha Giffen

Everything starts with that first step.  Even blogging.

Last night, I was listening to someone lamenting the fact that they had a site up but just hadn’t gotten around to blogging yet.  Why?  Afraid.

That first blog post is the hardest to write.  Take my word for it.

We all had that trepidation.  Even the good writers.  Because, when you start blogging, you just feel like the whole world is watching and waiting.  Especially watching!

Guess what?

They’re not.

That’s the real eye-opener!

Of course, you don’t realize that when you are wringing your hands over what to write on that first post.  You don’t realize that when you keep procrastinating and taking your sweet time about getting the post up.

But, after you’ve been blogging awhile, the fact is, you probably won’t even remember what you wrote about and for sure nobody else will either!

Now, I’m not saying your blog won’t grow into a wonderful business.  It will.  I’m just saying to take the first step.  It’s really not as traumatic as you might think.

Your blog will evolve over time as will your writing and your business.  Most people won’t come out of the gate with the most compelling blog post EVER that everyone on the internet will be clammering to read.

Be yourself!

Write like you were talking to a friend.  You know the subject matter.  That’s why you started the blog in the first place.  You LIKE the subject!

Does that make it easier?

I hope so!
