There’s no getting away from it: you start a blog, you have to have a first post.
First posts are always tedious. “This is what I aim to do with my blog. Yay for me.” Just what the world needs – another person throwing unsolicited thoughts out onto the Internet for all to see, preaching to an audience that in all likelihood isn’t going to show up.
If your blog is good and you fill it with armfuls of really great content, your first post is irrelevant – no one is ever going to dig so far back in the archives that they find your first nervous missive. If your blog is bad, you fill it with three posts about your cat before you forget the whole thing entirely but don’t have the good grace to take it down, your first post is irrelevant – no one is ever going to visit your blog, so no one is ever going to read that first post about how you intend to blog something every day.
Here’s a promise: I will not be blogging something every day.
