Lastly, when you start a blog, don’t be afraid of a little self-promotion. Does that mean you should stand outside with a sign saying, “read my blog!” Of course not…this isn’t the 80’s. Do the modern-day equivalent and use your social media networks to your advantage. Spread the word, tell your friends, create a community where you encourage comments, shares, conversation and where you offer regular updates on what you (aka your blog) are up to.

Ok, enough chitchat. You know what you need to do, you have all the tools to make it happen, now go ahead, take a leap of faith, and start writing!
