How to start a blog: 11 pro tips

So you've decided to start your own blog. Maybe you want to share your art tips, drum up a bit of interest in your portfolio or share your thoughts and opinions on more than just your Twitter feed. But before you rush into anything, consider this: the web (and in particular the blogosphere) is a crowded place.

There are plenty of blogs out there, all clamouring for people's attention, so you'll need to stand out from the crowd if you want to stand a chance of being noticed, and you'll need to stick with it; the best blogs are the ones that are updated regularly. It can be disappointing for readers to realise they've come to the end of your content, as the last time you updated your blog was in 2011.
