I was asked by writing.ie to write a series on blogging, this will be the first of many posts. Only writing about how to set up your blog, social media platforms, how to plan your blog, how to use analytical tools to see if which blog posts are successful.l I hope that you enjoy it and find it useful.
Why you need to blog
If you are a writer you need to have as many links on-line as possible. We live in an age where the standard talk is “I will tweet / Facebook / G + you” and “what is your Facebook fan page / blog / web address?”
Having a blog will increase your readership, hone your writing skills, give your immediate publication and feedback, give you a “Likability” (if you do it right) and ultimately increase your book sales.
You need to decide which blog platform you are going to use. They say that www.wordrepss.com is the best, if I had my time back I would probably go with that platform. But I like www.blogger.com now, and would never change.
