  • Determine the purpose of your blog. At the very least, it can be used for your personal knowledge base, journal, etc (Why I Blog.)
  • Make some choices:
    • Choose an editor application1. For example, because you can’t always just depend upon a blog’s editor, to have all the features you want/like/need, etc.
    • Choose a blog, from various blog providers2. Try out several, and then choose one that appeals to you (e.g. for ease of managment, appearance, etc.)
    • (optional) Choose a photo hosting provider3, so that you can post pictures there, and then link to them from your blog.
    • (optional) Choose means of earning money4
  • Starting Blogging.
  • Enjoy.
