Michael Hyatt from Working Smart has posted a great intro on how to actually start a blog. He outlines 8 steps needed to get going and stay going. Having spoken with several people recently who are thinking about starting but don’t know how, have issues on what to write, or the time to write his items provides a nice starting point.
I would add two things that if you are looking to set up a blog:-
1. Read other people’s blogs and comment on them.
2. Get an RSS reader so you can easily read other people blogs in an aggregated fashion.
