What better way to start the new year than to start your own blog?!
For those who are new to the subject, the word “blog” is short for “web log”. A blog is a personal website here you can post pictures, writes articles, opinions, share video clips, or post other information. It can be as personal as a diary, or it can be very subject-specific (like this one).
Blogging is a lot of fun. There are many systems for getting started in blogging, and this video from Fast Company contains some really great advice.
The Plano Public Library has these helpful books on blogging too, but the best way to start is to sign up on one of the websites above and give it a try. Most of the systems are fairly easy to use, and since they are free there is very little risk!
OK — start blogging!
