How do I get started? Where do I blog? (sites) etc. Can someone talk me through it please?

Um....Start here

I recommend Wordpress.

Then go ahead and ask more specific questions when you need to smile We're a friendly bunch.

MrL: do as she says

Have joined. grin Now how do I follow people get people to follow me? Someone somewhere must want to follow me. Or is that being overly presumptuous.

Read other blogs, comment, get involved, build relationships, write good content often enough...get on twitter and meet people there who may be interested in your blog (but don't just tweet blog post entries - that's boring and annoying)...

MmeLindor. Sun 21-Aug-11 20:35:36

Are you on Twitter, Vera?

That is the best way to get people reading your blog.

Tee2072 Sun 21-Aug-11 20:38:22

Post your URL right here and we'll read it!

TrillianAstra Sun 21-Aug-11 20:49:31

Tweeeeeeeeter is the only way anyone reads anything I post. Probably because people are on twitter because they are bored and have nothing better to do wink

VeraCanSignChocolateAndWine Sun 21-Aug-11 20:56:02

I don't tweet.

MmeLindor. Sun 21-Aug-11 21:06:47

Ha. Yes, twitter for the bored.

FlamingoBingo Sun 21-Aug-11 21:42:26

Better get started, then, Vera grin
