So you want to be a blogger? That’s great! Blogging is simple and fun but not easy. Definitely not easy. Even though you can set up a WordPress blog in less than 10 minutes, it takes countless hours of focus and patience to make things look the way you want.
When I wrote the blog post You Can’t START A Blog In 10 Minutes. Period., I not only wanted to highlight that it’s not easy to start a blog but also wished to create a series of posts to list everything you need to take care of while starting a new WordPress blog.
First things first. What’s your story? Why do you want to start a blog?
Over the years, I have noticed that almost all full-time bloggers have published a “How To Start A Blog In 10 Minutes” kind of tutorial and they make the entire process sound so simple.
Since starting a blog seems easy, almost everyone today wants to have a blog without really thinking about its purpose. In reality, it doesn’t work that way.
So before you do anything else, think about why you want to start a blog.
(Do I see you putting on your thinking cap? :))
