My First Blog Post

Ok this is pretty hilarious and I’m chuckling some as i write this… but I’m going to bare it all (not literally) in my quest to attempt to become a blogger. I’m documenting this for a couple reasons.. one is to try and get past a fear of being shy and expose my real self. …the other is to show some of my friends who might be interested in doing the same thing. Now I know some that see this are going to come back with an offer for a set and forget auto-blog program, some of which and one in particular that is very popular now, but I’m not going that route… I’m going the slow, tedious, takes forever, no immediate income stream route. Why?…  because I want to, and to see if I can, and because I like to learn.
So this might take a long time… I haven’t even set up the theme yet first I have to read through all the WordPress instruction…don’t even have a post up yet that’s why I’m writing this here… but I have gotten as far as getting a hosting account and installing the WordPress … and now starting to read the Set-up instructions…so you see this is funny.
I’m even going to post this on my Gurney Marketing Team site… which is really funny –  someone calling themselves a marketing team who doesn’t even blog yet HA
I”m not a complete dummy when it comes to networking or marketing…. just a complete dummy when it comes to internet marketing. You see I’ve done a lot of email and phone marketing and built a big database of other networkers and created a lot of relationships and more recently social networking all of which I still do and have come to excel at some of it. I have been able to build teams and support those teams, but I love to write and now it’s time to expand my horizons and start blogging  … and I know some of you are cracking up at me right now because you’ve been doing this already forever now and it seems silly someone like me who’s supposedly a leader is not blogging. Shoot – it will be really scary when I start videoing (is that even a word?) … I guess it is videoing well if not you know what i mean.
So…when I get my blog set up I will transfer this and it will be my first post and then you can monitor (and laugh) as I go.. and succeed or fail whichever happens. This is going to take a while maybe weeks maybe months I’m doing my conventional building at the same time and building the heck out of Q’ many hours every day that’s my top priority. I can build… just can’t blog. Maybe sometime in the future I build and blog. Enjoy watching
Thanks

Very good blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!

    definitely go with free WordPress to get started… you can get the wordpress.com which is a simple plug and play on their servers and their hosting… or you can get your own hosting company and install WordPress… this gives you full control over your content and data…contacts etc. If you choose wordpress.com you can always upgrade to a paid version later. Installed WordPress is free…you pay the hosting
