Have you selected your free web host?

Then now is the time to get serious about your blog. What topic or topics are you going to be blogging about? Will yours be a blog about celebrity escapades? Who did What to Whom? Why? How? and Where did it happen?

Or a more personal blog about a topic you are passionate about: recipes, gardening, your family, movies, books, art, American Idol winners, American Idol losers who became winners, TV shows, Susan Boyle? You get the idea.

Or are you interested in selling your professional services, as a consultant, resume writer, life coach, career consultant, whatever?

When you blog, content is king. You may not post (write) every day. But you do have to have content. Content is what you blog about. Are your posts creative, interesting, informative, worthwhile, serious, humorous, unusual, practical, memorable? Or all of the above? Would the reader want to return to your site?

Do you keep the reader in mind with everything you write? Be aware that all of us are constantly listening to an internal radio station: W I I – F M - What’s In It For Me. Your content has to show your readers what’s in it for them.
My next post will focus on your domain name. If you have any “newbie” blogger questions, please post them as comments. I'll give you the best answers I know.


  1. Wow…what else can I say? You are awesome dude. Now I know why I must try my hand at freelancing. After I read your blog, I realized that my time has come to kickstart my career as a freelancer. Many people are making lots of money through www.zopvideos.com , free online jobs from homeplatforms. So, why can’t I?

  2. Bluehost is ultimately one of the best web-hosting company with plans for all of your hosting requirments.
