How to begin a blog?

How do you let the world know when your new blog is ready to take its place in the vast blogosphere?

               Should you  unveil it,

     announce it,

or create a global advertising campaign?



          Would it be best to launch it,   


      put the flags out,

or have a grand opening ceremony?

I think I’ll just quietly set sail and let my little blog drift where it wants ...

If you’re a blogger, how did you get started?

Yay, you're open. Stumbled across your blog today. Pleased to *meet* you and welcome to the blogsphere. Have fun. I've followed you to help get you started. I only started my blog in March this year so still quite a newbie on the block!

Linda D said...

Pleased to meet you too, Suzanne!

Jamie said...

There ya go, Sunshine. Followed you in..

I really like the look!
Quietly is good but if you want to meet new bloggers I have a tip. I used to visit other blogs and read the comments. If I saw a comment that caught my eye I would visit that person's blog and leave a comment. It didn't take long to strike up a connection.

Have fun with it, see you soon.

Welcome aboard, Jamie and SquirrelQueen!

Once the Announcement is over you actually have to post! Get thee to a keyboard more often and all will follow in due course.

Squirrel Queen has the right idea, that's how I started too.

PS: Does that mean you are now rich?

Linda D said...

Writing as fast as I can, Friko, but I do get distracted. For example, I've just spent half an hour over at your fascinating blog. I don't comment on all your posts but I do read them!
No, I'm not rich yet, but perhaps when my novel's published ...!

I deleted my first few posts as they were so rubbish - stuff like 'er hello, can anyone see me?'. I think I've got a bit better since.
