Blogging is a huge industry these days, even here in little old Australia. There can be a lot of pressure (externally and internally) to start the perfect blog, with the perfect niche, perfect logo and perfect theme. This pressure often gets in the way of doing what you really need to do, which is to:
Just. Start. Blogging.
Two things should be considered here:
Perfect doesn’t exist in blogging, much like in real life!
Blogging is a rapidly evolving industry and what is perfect this year won’t be perfect next year. I know the Type A’s and perfectionists out there will struggle with this, but it’s really something you’ll need to come to terms with if you’re not going to drive yourself crazy.
Barely anyone starts out with a perfect design and idea.
I started my personal blog on wordpress.com just because I wanted to learn how to use WordPress. I didn’t really intend to keep blogging on it and now it was been about five years, I’ve made many wonderful friends, had a ton of great experience and none of that was planned.
What is truly keeping your from just starting your blog? Or publishing a new post?
