So you are teetering on the edge of building your blog site and joining the blogosphere, but your not sure if you have the time, technical knowledge, money, or a good idea for your blog site.
Before You Move Forward
It is a good idea to “Make A Plan & Work The Plan” and in that spirit it is good idea as part of your planning to write a few blogs in your favorite word processor like Word and get some feed back from family and friends. This will help you decide if you want to blog, but it will also help you start to hone in on what the base topic of your blog is going to be. Another benefit of writing a few blogs before you start to build your website is that it starts to build your blogging skills. If you have never written a blog it is a completely different skill then writing your term papers back in high school. So it takes some time and practice to develop your blog writing style.
There is always time for what ever project you want to under take, it is just a matter of putting your mind to it. You will need more time right up front to get your website up and running, but that time can be reduced by taking the Blog Builder Basics course and follow it step-by-step. This will save you many hundreds of hours researching how to build your blog site.
Once you have your site up and running you just need to find time to write and time to promote your site. I have found the best way for me is to schedule time in my calendar on my phone. So every Monday night at 8 pm my phone tells me it is time to write, and I usually write for one hour. And every Wednesday night at 8 pm my phone tells me it is time to promote my site.
Not to blow my own horn but if you were to buy the Blog Builder Basics course and follow it step-by-step, by the time you are done you will have a fully functional blog web site. The Blog Builder Basics course is so easy even your mom could do it, and will save you 100s of hours of research and knowledge ramp time.
