  • I have no idea, I don’t have a desire to set one up, but seems like you’ve already got a few set up tips

  • You can pretty much just google “WordPress” and set one up in about ten minutes. Making it something other people would like to visit/ read is a lot harder, though. I can’t help much there.

  • I came here to read the answers. Good question.

  • A good question and all the answers are great!

  • WordPress is a great site to help you create your own blogs, that’s where I do mine through. The main trick is to keep writing because it can get easy to be distracted or get busy so sometimes I stockpile a few posts that I can throw up anytime about things that I love or questions I want to ask so that I am still engaging on a regular basis.

    I started mine as most of my family is overseas and I am currently on my 3rd reiteration of it, I used Blogger the first time but WordPress for the last two and really enjoy it. Be sure to share the link if you decide to get started so we can all read along :)

  • Are you hoping to make morn from it? Or do it just for fun? If you like writing, and don’t want money for it, why don’t you make regular contributions here……on MoMs? The other mums would love to read it I’m sure

  • I was wondering the same thing… Great answers thanks

  • Hi! I just came across this page! Maybe it can help you! :-)

  • I used the google blogger before. its quite easy

  • I went through wordpress. It took me two days of reading and walkthroughs to set things up the way i wanted it as i was linking in other social media acc’s. You will be able to set it up and post straight away though. Good Luck

  • Hi, I have a blog and chose Blogger. WordPress is another popular one, there are many others. Blogger is owned by Google and I found it more user friendly with heaps of features. You can use a variety of their templates or your own. You can also purchase a custom domain name for your blog if you like eg: Just say you will call your blog mydeardiary2, if you purchase a domain name it will become http://www.mydeardiary2.com however, if you prefer not to then your blog name will automatically default to be mydeardiary2.blogspot.com – personal choice here but I purchased a domain name. Hope this helps to get you started, all the best.

  • Thanks for the ANSWER – I’ll be having a look too.

  • Good Luck; I read the tips and thought they were pretty good for anyone wanting to take on this venture. Let us know when you set up your Blog; would love to take a look! Again; good luck! :)

  • thanks I will

  • Type Blog in the search bar on this site as there are plenty of good answers already on this site on this good question. There are also some good articles with helpful advice and they share good tips. Good Luck! :)
