Blogs part 3 - How to start one

Starting a blog is pretty easy and there is lots of excellent guidance on the Internet already about how to do it so I'll direct you to that rather than try and explain it myself.

There are some things to consider before setting up a blog.

  • Have a clear idea about what your blog is for?
  • Will it be an organisational one or an individual one?
  • Will you have time to write posts and will more than one person be able to post to the blog?
  • Does it fit in with your organisation's policy on using external software/technologies?
  • Are you going to allow comments and will they be moderated?
  • How will you publicise your blog? Link from your homepage, post to the listserve, make it open for listing by the blogging host? It is up to you to decide what is appropriate.

When you are setting up a blog, many of these questions will be options that you will be able to chose. For example whether to allow reader comments or multiple blog authors.
