Post subject:  Starting an MA related blog.

Hello :)

As the title so obviously suggests,I would dearly love to start up a blog relating to all things Marie Antoinette. Advice from anyone who already has a blog would be extremely helpful regarding the best blog sites,how to get people to actually read and comment on the blog itself and just general advice on the content of daily entries and such things.

Thank you so very very much!!

Hello,

I'm not a very good blogger ( :oops:) , but some of things I've learned over my many months might be helpful to you:

1). Have good content. You want to have content that's well-written and interesting to read.
2). Have images to accompany your writings. Make sure the images you use are not pixelated and are in good enough quality that your readers can see them. And, of course, give credit if credit is needed.
3). Research, research, research! It always helps to research.
4). Have a good layout/template. Your blog should be easy to navigate, should have a common theme/color scheme going on, and should be readable. It's very hard to read dark text on a dark background. >.>
5). Look at other blogs and get inspiration from them.

I hope this helps! :smile:
