Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is zero to hero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

  1. Dear Mr Rudra Sir -I have gone through your great profile and am pretty impressed with your qualifications and the great work you are doing for the benefit of the common man. I am just a simple travel enthusiast who wants to see places on this earth which boost my general knowledge of the diverse cultural heritage our great country India. It is a great honour for me to be given so many likes on my simple blogs and the ‘following’ of my site! Thanks a lot, Sir !
