No Time Like Now

How Not to Start a Blog

  1. Think about it for approximately 7 years without actually writing a word. Decide today is the day.
  2. Study all of the various blog hosting tools and sites looking for a perfect one. You're already logged into Google many hours a day, so just go with Blogger.
  3. Remember that your fingers and brain sometimes disconnect, and that results in typos. Know how to use the edit button and count on all of your English teacher/major friends to let you know about any serious typos so you can fix them.
  4. Wonder what you have to say that would be of interest to anyone else. Start a project to stretch your personal comfort zone and write about it in hopes it might help someone else be braver too.
  5. Worry about random, anonymous people finding the blog and leaving mean comments on a post. One word:  Delete.
  6. Wonder how you will fit it in to your already busy life. Build in a little time each day to write.  Publish when it's ready.
  7. Reserve 42 potential blog names in search of just the right one.  Just find a name that isn't already taken, remembering that you have made it this far in life with a name like Lynne.

And there you have it.  Welcome to The Brave Project blog.
