Writing the first post on your blog

Well, writing the first post on your blog is always an interesting experience. For the first-time blogger, it could even be a memorable one.

There is the trepidation on how your opinions or writing would be received, the eager anticipation for readers, an occasional scratching of the head on what to write, the indecision on the page theme….with each person it is different, but somehow the same. Whether the blog is going to be professional or personal, based on travel or interests or on random thoughts or bubbles of imagination, the first impression is important.

An introductory note on what the blog is about is traditional if not de rigueur, but I think I will skip that part.

I will just get on with writing, and see exactly where it takes me. As the title suggests, this blog is set to be a daily rite kind of thing: let us hope I keep my word to myself on this one.

For as we bloggers all know, there is something a lot more demanding than the first post, and that is not merely the second post, but also the ambition of daily posts afterwards.

I love comments, and I always visit back. Blogging is all about being a part of a community, and communities are about communication! Tweet me up @damyantig !

    Thanks, Bob! It is precisely this feel of community that makes blogging such an exceptional habit:)

    I will be a frequent visitor of your blog, and of course, would head over to Amy’s blog too!

    I just wanted to say, good luck with this blog – and your other one too!
    I started blogging last April and it has been great for me. It’s fun, it’s interesting, it’s amazing to read comments from people from so many different cultural backgrounds who feel touched by or inspired by something on your blog. That really is a thrill.
    But what I mainly wanted to say was to encourage you in this new venture. I have found blogging has unleashed my creativity – both my writing and my photography – but especially my ideas and my reflections. My daughter, Amy, has had a very similar experience with her blog too. Go see hers on liveslessordinary.wordpress.com
    Thanks for stumbling on my blog too. I look forward to reading yours as it grows this year.
