I remember the day I started my blog.
It all started when I saw a tweet by a blogger I followed. "I'm hanging out at the Rudy's on 183 in Austin if anyone wants to eat bbq!" It was by Michael Hyatt, a popular blogger on leadership, and he happened to be 15 minutes away from my off-campus apartment.
I had to go!
I'm not going to lie to you, I was pretty starstruck. I had been following Michael for months and I knew he had hundreds of thousands of followers. And here I was meeting him in real life!
Nervously, I told him it was my dream to write books one day and he asked, "Have you started a blog?"
I told him I hadn't and he encouraged me that if I ever wanted to publish books, I needed to blog. It was the best way to become a better writer, build an audience, and figure out what I wanted my books to be about.
That evening, I sat down to start my first blog. I had NO idea where to start and the idea of running a website was daunting and unknown.
I spent ENDLESS time on Google and Youtube, but all the information I found was confusing. I didn't know where to begin.
Starting a blog is a big dream for many people, but the tech side of things can be overwhelming! There's a lot of unknown factors and confusing jargon like "hosting", "domains", and "SEO".
It's safe to say when I started, I had no idea what I was doing.
