Even with that said, my blog has reached more people over the last year than I could have ever imagined. Blogger, the publishing service that I use, provides lots of fun stats about your blog. My page has been viewed 2,146 times! It also shows this cool map of your world-wide reach. Who knew that people in Europe and Alaska would be viewing my blog?!
I know when I look back a few years from now, I will be so glad that I have these posts to document what our daily life was like when we first found out we were expecting our second baby and welcomed her into the world. I have so many other things I want to do with my blog and can't thank you all enough for your support!
For those of you considering starting a blog, but something may be holding you back, just do it! I know I have a lot of friends who have considered it before, but don't know where to start. These are the steps that I took:
1. Do a web domain search. Come up with your blog name, and see if there are any websites out there with that name. I purchased my domain through google, and pay $12 a year to keep the website up.
2. Do your research on a publishing service. Like I said, I use Blogger. However, I've also heard good things about Word Press.
3. Create your social media sites. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest - how are you going to market your blog?
4. Write your first post!
