Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

  1. Bună, Suzana ! 🙂

    La două din întrebările tale de mai sus TRADUSE de ” Google Translate ”

    ” De ce bloguezi public, mai degrabă decât să ții un jurnal personal?

    Cu cine ai vrea să te conectezi prin intermediul blogului tău?”

    RĂSPUNSUL meu este :

    1. Dacă aș ține un JURNAL PERSONAL , opiniile mele ar rămâne necunoscute de lumea virtuală ! 😦

    În schimb , prin intermediul celor două bloguri personale :
    opiniile mele vor fi cunoscute de întreaga lume virtuală cu care pot interacționa permanent ! 🙂

    2. Prin intermediul celor două bloguri personale , doresc să mă conectezi cu toată lumea virtuală care îmi accesează blogurile lăsând ca dovadă un LIKE sau un ” comment” !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Mulțumesc pentru vizita virtuală făcută și posibilitatea de a te cunoaște virtual ! 🙂

    Cum eu nu cunosc deloc Limba Engleză 😦
    căci în Liceul Militar ” Ștefan cel Mare” din Câmpul Lung Moldovenesc ,
    promoția 1969
    am studiat doar Limba Franceză și Limba Rusă ,
    am postat cele de mai sus în Limba ROMÂNĂ ,
    urmând ca Domnia Ta să apelezi le ” Google Translate” pentru a-ți traduce în engleză ! 🙂

    O TOAMNĂ frumoasă și binecuvântată ! 🙂
    Cu stimă și respect,
    Alioșa ! 🙂
