Learning to Blog: Reflections on My First Month

Learning to Blog

On Christmas Eve, it will be exactly one month since I published my first post on homehurrah.com.  It’s been an exciting month for me.  I have learned a lot about blogging, and the process of preparing my posts has been interesting.

Starting a blog has taken some time and effort, and I still have much to learn! The good news is that there are many sources of support. If you happen to be interested in starting your own blog, one of the reference books that I found most helpful was: “WordPress, Absolute Beginner’s Guide”, by Triss Hussey. When getting started, it also helps to refer to informative blogs and websites on the internet. I looked up a whole bunch. http://startbloggingonline.com/ was just one of the many good resources out there.

As I reflect on this experience so far, I want to say thank you to those of you who are reading the blog, and to those of you who have left comments – you made my day!

Looking Forward

As I head into my second month of blogging, I continue to look forward to posting regularly on a variety of topics related to home.  Over the next few months, I will also be including interviews with people who are finding ways to incorporate their passions into their home life: a visual artist, two photographers, and a published author.

I invite you to let me know if there is a topic you would like me to write about, or the name of a song or artist that connects you with “home”. I will do my best to include your suggestions in future posts!
