I read somewhere, as usual, that if you have thoughts of starting a blog or website you have to keep a few things in mind during the planning process or “planning session”. First off you have to know what the overall purpose of your site is to begin with because if you just dive in head first you will, I know from various attempts at personal experience, not achieve a whole lot and become frustrated with yourself. Also what is the specific mission statement that you have for the site and your intentions regarding it. Here is a list regarding other information that you will need to plan for.
- What am I going to do with this?
- Who is going to read this?
- What kinds of info will I be posting?
- Why am I doing this?
- Who am I doing this for?
- How often am I going to be posting and adding information?
Once you have identified your intentions for said site or blog then you will be on the road towards a successful idea. It won’t explode from the start and just like anything it takes time and patience. As long as you work hard on your idea you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.
