Blog to tell, publicize, or promote

Why
  • Publicize--Tell people about something important to you
  • That includes instruction and information
  • That's it.  At least for starters.  
  • Maybe you develop a rep and get hired as a consultant
  • Maybe you sell ads
  • But don't count on it
  • If you start for those reasons, you will soon quit
  • Anything that is worth doing is worth knowing why you are doing  it

Staying
  • Set a publication schedule 
  • At least several times a week
  • How can you make it easier for you?
  • What do you hate doing and how can you fix it?
