Here is some advice I gave to a question I was asked:
To start a blog you want to figure out what to write about. I like to write about the news, the economy, Chromebooks, and a few other topics. I just surf the internet till I find something I want to write about, and then I do. The key to blogging is to be consistent. you want to publish a post on a regular basis. After you start publishing you want to work on building your audience. there are several ways to do this but I have found the the best way is to start commenting on other blogs and use social media (I like Google+, Quora). Then just keep writing and your blog will grow.
What do you think?
