Yes, starting a blog is daunting …

Many people who are new to blogging find it a rather daunting concept.
Stop thinking about blogging like you do about other writing.  Blogging is different.  You don’t need to develop a thesis.  You don’t even have to write an article. Blog posts are supposed to be short and to the point.  If you treat your blog posts like a rambling monologue then you will have less, rather than more readers.
In a world where people are overloaded with information, if you don’t get them in the first 8 seconds with a hook that keeps them there, then you’ve lost them for good. That’s why first impressions count so very much. In my industry, people are used to writing long reports for donors, full of incomprehensible jargon. Getting them to think about writing so that somebody actually reads it is a difficult sell.
In fact, lots of people don’t really like writing at all.
That’s ok.  Use video or audio instead.  Try <a href=”www.ipadio.com/phlogs/Idasa/”><b>ipadio</b></a>.
