If I was starting over, I would have been more intentional about frequently blogging AND the content of the posts. My early posts were just completely random and very infrequent; I would go MONTHS without an update.
I also wish that I had joined blogging networks sooner -- they add another fun dimension to blogging.
tried really hard to narrow my focus and find an appropriate design and have it all "set" before I opened the blog. I've done a lot of changing and experimenting and it probably drives all 3 of my readers crazy.
I would like to say i would come through the gate at a sprint, but I learned a lot on my path. I worked really hard to get where I am today, and I think it wouldn't be as sweet without the stumbles along the way.
If I did change one thing, it would be to join networks like these sooner. the friendships I have made from this, just priceless!
If...I could start over - and of course I can start over, because I can simply stop the one I have now, and choose a new name, a new look, a new topic...all of that. But, IF I were to do that I would . . .
1. Write for a while before I told people about. In fact I may still need to write a while before I tell people about it.
2. Would NOT even think about the comments
3. Be more precise and enticing in titling posts
And, I can do all of those things now, so hey...what's holding me up?
I'm honestly pretty happy with the way everything has gone so far. I knew almost nothing about blogging before I started, but I'm a quick study :) I learned what people were and weren't reading, and stuck with the latter. And I have the benefit of being my own designer too. Overall, it has been a good learning experience, and I wouldn't change any of it. Well...If I could change ANYthing, I would've started years ago :)
Oh, and I can design your self-hosted WordPress blog, ladies, so look me up! I can also do WordPress.com blogs if you purchase the CSS upgrade.
hmmm... I think i will register domain name for my first blog. The other 2 already domain name. If i do also for my first blog, it will take from zero again for my technoraty, etc. I don't want that...So far, I have 1.550 technoraty for my first blog....
