Blogging 101: So You Want to Start a Blog? | East Africa | Scoop.it

Starting a blog has never been easier — but with all the social media, CMSs and techie lingo out there, it can be a tough path to navigate at first.

One of the most important things you’ll need to do as a blogger is to constantly remind yourself to stay true to your own voice. It’s easy to get caughtup in the blogging world and to lose yourself, but the best and most successful blogs are passion projects that ring true to the fired up blogger behind them.

Here’s a helpful guide to how to start a blog coming at you from one blogger who’s been down that road.
