So you want to start a blog? Tracy’s tips

A couple of years ago I was interviewed at work for a short series on creative writing and blogging. I went for the taping and then promptly forgot about it. Yesterday, I stumbled upon my interviews on YouTube. Two of them were about blogging.

Since they seem to have disappeared into the ether with very few views (38 and 17), I thought I would post them here. In fact, there are some useful tips (if I do say so myself).

I firmly believe that blogging is an excellent way for writers to promote their own platform and generate a community around their passions. Sam and I had no idea when we started Fit Is a Feminist Issue how it would unfold. But we went with it and today we have built up a community around the blog that makes us proud.

If you’ve ever wanted to start a blog of your own, I hope you find these tips and suggestions helpful.

Here’s Part One of my comments on blogging:

And here’s Part two of my comments on blogging:

  1. Interesting comments. My blog is probably too much of a mishmash and original BLOG format. Food for thought…

  2. Reblogged this on FIT IS A FEMINIST ISSUE and commented:

    February seems like a great month to start a blog. Here are some of my thoughts on how to do that, from some rare and little-viewed video footage that got recorded and I promptly forgot about. I’ll take this moment to add this: this blog with Sam and the wonderful other authors who post for us, both our regulars and our occasional guests, is one of the things in my life I am most proud to be associated with. One reason for its success is that its success doesn’t depend fully on one person (though if Sam wasn’t as good as she is at coordinating things it may well have fall en apart).

    If you decide to start a blog, let us know (especially if it’s feminist, but we’ll check out almost anything at least once). TI
