Before I moved to Nashville, I created a blog called New Media Nashville. The purpose of blogging for me was to learn about the Nashville technology marketing landscape. We moved to Nashville in March, 2007, but I started the blog in January.
What better way to introduce yourself to a topic than to start a blog about it? From writing the blog, I quickly learned who I wanted to meet in Nashville.
How to Start a Blog
Starting a blog is easy today. I recommend using a free service like Wordpress or Blogger, or if you are sharing design-rich content try Tumblr. If you want to get serious about blogging, I highly recommend switching to a self-hosted Wordpress blog.
Bonus tip. You don't have to make your blog public if you are not ready to. Consider keeping it private first until you are comfortable with it.
Share a link to your blog in the comments.
