I’m Just Like You-

Prologue Of A Very Old Book

The court room was silent. An excellent question being, why was it? I do not know about why it is in its current state. Though I do know the next- warning- announcement put everyone on edged, palpable really. The clatter did not ever start before silence resumed. But what is a court without a message spread. Useless. A room without a word spoken? A room of silent people.

“Someone here has the power to guide us through the dark Edge Forest.” The sentence contained information that was known and quite put to attention by the councilor in charge; Councilor Derek Le Firedazar. Now that certainly started a clatter, oh, I suppose I mean clamor.

The bishie, excuse my language, in the middle of the room stood in a position as if he had prepared to draw his sword, but of course it would not be so, it was a political room after all. Still standing with a hand prepared he waited and watched for the, nay expected a lady, greedy lady to come out into the scene and say she has been blessed. Or cursed. With this power, this gift.

She did not come out.

Oh, we will wait here for hours.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
