You can make some test posts to learn how your chosen program works. Experiment with hyperlinks, formatting the text, adding images, etc. You can always delete your practice posts when you’re done.
Keep an eye out for new trends and technologies in the marketplace. There was a time when email and computers did not exist. Look how things are continuously changing and a lot of new products and improvements will always become available.

Once you have a blog up and running, and you’re comfortable with how to use it, you can move on to “loftier” topics, such as increasing your traffic and growing your web presence.
