Blogging for Beginners #4: Posts & Pages

I’m so glad I’m recovered enough to post this. I’m sorry for skipping on Wednesday and that pseudo-post on Monday. I was down with viral fever and it was the best I could do. I still have a headache and all the shenanigans, so let me not waste any more words on the introduction then as the title is quite clear. If you’re a beginner and find this helpful, please let me know that my hard work behind this post is paying off.

An Unconventional First Post

Lying in the depths of WordPress, this blog has been screaming for attention ever since I created it. Sorry it took me so long. Finding the right words is hard. Finding inspiration to write them is harder. Finding time when the right words inspire me to type is the hardest. I’m sure you can relate.

So, what makes a great first post? I’m not sure I know, but I’ll venture a guess.

There’s a lot of advice out there to tell you how to get your blog off to perfect start. Tell your readers what to expect, they say. Keep it short, simple and to the point. I’m sure they mean well. That doesn’t mean I’m going to follow it.

A good first post, according to me, is something you can re-read a couple of years later and not feel ashamed of how it turned out. Of course there’s going to be a learning curve. Don’t be too harsh on yourself. Does it still suck? Then it’s definitely not a good first post.

Write about anything and everything. There’s no set rule. Spill the words that have been plaguing your mind ever since you thought of having a blog. It’s just another post. Don’t write something because it is expected of you. Write only what you want to.

A first post on first posts. Pretty clever, huh?
