No, it's not me - I still feel
like a newbie sometimes, but with over 250 posts over here so far
, I guess I'm really not.
But a friend has asked for some advice about setting up a blog, and she's a total novice...I'm not even sure she reads
blogs. But she's recently relocated, and her old friends have asked her to start a blog so they can keep up with her and her family, and she doesn't know where to start.
I use Blogger as my platform, and I was going to suggest she try either that or Wordpress.com, since they're both free and not too hard to figure out - any preferences/biases out there?
But I think she ought to do some blog surfing and see what's out there before she gets going. I think her blog will pretty much be family/personal stuff (she's a SAHM right now, 2 school-aged kids), and I was curious about which blogs y'all might recommend as "research" for her.
I wanted to pick your brains about this topic, since I'd like to be very helpful to her and I'm sure there are things I wouldn't think of. What advice would you blogging WIMs have to share with someone who wants to get started? Thanks!
