Who here hasn't started blogging yet? Why haven't you?

Just wondering.

    There’s so much information, I have never felt “ready” if you know what I mean. I worry much less about the content and more about monitoring and promoting a website.

      It's definitely an effort. I was much the same. At some point I just got cracking and started getting feedback, making incremental changes rather than having everything perfect at once. After a year, the whole blog undoubtedly looks better and more professional than when I began. The technical skills ("monitoring and promoting a website") come in time and piece-wise.

      If you've got content, just get cracking. That's the main thing.

        Blogging definitely requires the effort to spread your message to as many people as you can, I find many people underestimate it or are just generally scared of doing it. One step at a time is the way to go, start small and keep improving as you said.

        Great reply. What's your blog if you don't mind me asking?

        Definitely!

    I've read it's best practice to write a bunch of things first and build a buffer zone of content. So that's what I'm doing for now. No rush.

    I have so many ideas in my head, I think I ultimately have the fear of who will be my audience. Who will read it. You know?

    I have, but had to take a break (and the blog down) because of lack of time. I will be re-launching soon though when I find enough time for it to be worthwhile. There's no point if I can't dedicate at least 10 hours to it per week.

    No cause I don't know what I'm doing! Just the thought of trying to set it up intimidates me.

      Not a blogger or anything, but even I know that you can start really easily on wordpress.com and/or medium.com.

    I'm too big of a wimp. Simple as that :(

    Deciding on a niche is killing me. I've wanted to start forever but it just completely eludes me.
