  1. Hello, Jan.

    Nice to hear you’re thinking of joining the blogging “world.” As a writer and blogger, I’m partial to the medium. There are pluses and minuses.

    First, there isn’t much work in setting up the site. None involving coding. Choose a platform that’s easy to use. This one is on WordPress, which I believe is the most popular platform. Once you set up the site, it’s a matter of producing the content. (Certain plugins are nice to have, but we can save that topic for later.)

    The real “work” in a blog is posting columns. If you like to write and have lots to say, it should be a manageable task to write regularly (at least twice a week). You will encounter dry spells, however.

    Decide what you want to accomplish with your blog. If your goal is to generate massive traffic to sell product(s), you’ll need to hone your approach.

    But, if you just want to post for fun–which is a good way to start–you can do so rather leisurely.

    Hope this helps. Thanks for visiting and posting a comment.

  2. Hey there excellent website! Does running a blog similar to this
    take a great deal of work? I have absolutely no expertise in coding but
    I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways,
    should you have any ideas or tips for new
    blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I just needed to ask.
    Thank you!
