Are you planning on starting a web site soon? Then, you better prepare and read all about it first. When I first started blogging, I was a bit overwhelmed. I didn't know anything about blog marketing and all that other blogging technical terms. All I know was that I wanted to write and that I wanted people to read what I write.
It didn't matter much to me if my blog was popular or not. I wanted people to come to my blog, but that is, if they're interested in what I have to say. Haha.
If you're thinking of starting your own site, you can always use a free web site creator. There are a lot of those available in the internet. Once you know more about web design, you can tweak your site or even make a new one using your own skills.
I've been blogging for about three years, but I still know only a little about the technical aspects of blogging. I just continue to post blog entries. Haha. I'll try to learn some blogging tricks, though, to improve this blog's design. :)
