Getting started with blogging is an easy thing to do. Personally, I’d highly recommend using WordPress as an introductory platform first. To me, the most important thing a blogger needs to have is motivation. There are a large number of abandoned Warcraft blogs out there. I suspect it’s due to several factors like losing interest in blogging or despair at the lack of comments and interaction.
Tip: To see if blogging is something you really want to do, come up with 5 post ideas. Expand on them and then write it out. If you can come up with and complete 5 blog post ideas, then you might have what it takes to be a blogger. And guess what? When you do start your blog, you’ll have a head start with 5 posts just waiting to go up!
The best advice I can give you is to not get discouraged. Blogs do not become overnight success stories. You need to invest hours of time and work. It isn’t all about writing, either.
Blogging is easy to get into. Blogging well requires hard work and effort, just like any other activity that you wish to master.
