Contrary to what you see splashed across Pinterest, you CANNOT start a REAL blog in just 10 minutes.
Even 10 freakin’ hours may not be enough to start your blog.
And today I’m here to tell you why.
I’ve been blogging for a long time now… ever since I got my very first desktop PC — a hand-me-down from my uncle. At that time, the only blogging platform that I knew of was Blogger.
Back in those days, no one that I knew blogged except this one off-beat internet friend that I had made on MSN chat (yeah…) We never saw one another in person, but he was the most “tech-savvy” teenager I knew, and he introduced me to the world of HTML, CSS, and coding in general, and then eventually, to blogging.
All my blogs, however, have been some version or another of a personal diary. The concept of blogging as something more than that was largely foreign to me until a few years ago when I started freelancing. That’s when I learned the true power of a blog.
And so the journey began.
