Week Four!: What to blog about

Hello everyone ūüėÄ
This is Week 4 of¬†ateenagediaryonline’s¬†BGTB project(it’s amazing I’m not even kidding) The topic for this week is¬†What to blog about *drumrolls* I finally know what to write about! So here goes my post for this week:

When I first started out with my blog(9th grade), it was going to only consist of essays and stories and stuff like that. However, now I blog about anything and¬†everything. And this can also be the case with you! Your blog can either¬†have one specific topic you blog about(eg: A food blog), or you can blog just about things you love(music, literature, movies), or you can¬†have a completely versatile blog and include everything under the sun(what you had for breakfast, an appreciation post about your¬†best friend, guy problems, book reviews).¬†Blogging ends up¬†being really very easy if you blog about things you love and want to invest time in. Just because someone really¬†famous has a blog about clothes, or shopping styles,¬†doesn’t mean thats what¬†YOU¬†need. You might hate shopping and talking about clothes non-stop.
However, to help everyone there are so, so many different things you could post on your blog and these are a few of them:
1) Book/ movie/ tv show/ songs reviews, they go a long way¬†because you’re bound to find someone online with similar interests.
2) If you’ve recently taken a¬†vacation, describe it.
3) Talk about pizza!
4) Your plans for Christmas.

So, in the end you can blog about absolutely anything! There are a million great blogs online and it’s no shame to read their posts and try to¬†inoculate those in your own blog. No one ever starts without actually reading something and getting an idea. I think, the main idea is to have fun and¬†remember why you’re doing this(I’m doing this because I¬†want to get internet¬†famous, jk, I love writing!)

 

Week Three!: Domain Name and Blog Theme

So this is Week 3 of¬†Ateenagediaryonline’s¬†project! And this is another week of me having no clue about the topic. However, here’s my post for her project:

In all honesty, I really do not know anything about domain names. I remember being really small and seeing this advertisement of a domain website(GoDaddy) and thinking it was a dating site! So¬†clearly, I had no clue what domain¬†names were and I still¬†don’t. But here’s a¬†definition:¬†A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet.¬†
I didn’t understand any part of that¬†definition so I’m¬†going to skip to the next part of this topic! Blog Themes! Almost all blogging websites have themes. There are¬†millions on wordpress itself. So a blog theme is basically how your blog looks, where everything is located, and the¬†functionality of your blog. Obviously, blog¬†themes are used to make your blog look more¬†attractive and pretty and¬†eye-appealing. Now, I can’t remember what theme I’m currently using. However, I did use the¬†Chalkboard¬†theme once. There are many different¬†themes available on wordpress and many for premium users as well.¬†

Week Two!: Blogging Platforms

This is my second post for Ateenagediaryonline’s Project! This week’s topic is Blogging Platforms and I’m super late in doing this, but here it is now!

In all honesty, I know absolutely nothing about Blogging Platforms. I’ve heard about various different ones(Blogspot and others), but I’ve only ever used WordPress. From what I’ve seen, WordPress is really easy to use. Once you register, you get instructions along the way and information on how to use every single feature. There are various layouts and WordPress also provides you with a sample post. It’s also a really great platform to get to know various other bloggers and make some really great friends too! Though many features may be paid, the most basic tools you need to start a blog are all free and real easy to use. And that is all I actually know.

Week One!: An Intro to Blogging

This is my post for Ateenagediaryonline’s extremely awesome, awesome project! I’ve been really excited about this so I’m glad to finally have the chance to do it.

I was introduced to blogging in the 7th grade in school when our English Lit. textbook had blog posts of different authors as our course study. Though I have to admit, I did not like the idea of blogging at all at first. Why would anyone be bothered to read what you post on the internet? Why would anyone ever be interested in reading your story? When I reached the 9th grade, my best friend sent me the link to her own blog, and that was when my opinion completely changed. My best friend’s blog had everything! Poems and stories and personal experiences, and people were actually reading it! So that was when I started this blog, and I have loved every single bit of it. So I think if anyone is as prejudiced as I was against blogging, all you have to do is start one!

This project is amazeballs and for anyone who wants to do it, you should definitely go contact her!
