Blog, please blog. Just Blog

My name is Denny, and I’m a blogger. I you should join me in this endeavor of writing a blog.

Why should you be blogging? Because that’s how we learn, and that’s how we share.

What Do I say in my blog?

You may think that you don’t have anything new to say, but blogging isn’t always about writing something new. It’s about putting your spin and your flare on the topic. Not every topic needs to be earth shattering, or totally new.

Where do I start?

Start by writing about something that you do at work. When you run across something interesting, or that you fix and write about it.  It’s a great way to find topics.  You can even write about something so that you have somewhere to find the information later.  (Here’s a secret, we all do that.)

Don’t worry about writing something new, write about something that you’ve experienced.

It takes so long.

It can, when you get started.  But your blog posts don’t need to be War and Piece.  This post is ~200 words.  It took 10 minutes to put together (you’ll get faster, I’ve written 1100+ posts and hundreds of articles and book pages).  They can be short and that’s just fine.

Just blog.

Blogging is expensive.

WordPress has free hosted blogging, or you can pay a few bucks and have your own domain name instead of something.wordpress.com.

Who will read what I write?

And when you start blogging, tell me the URL in the comments. That way I can read it, and so can others.

P.S. And yes, I totally stole this from Andy Leonard.  You’ll notice how we talks about everyone having their own style, this is his post in my style. Same basic information and conclusion, different format and style.  Some people will gravitate towards Andy’s approach, some towards mine.  This is why we blog about stuff that’s already been written.

The post Blog, please blog. Just Blog appeared first on SQL Server with Mr. Denny.
