When I started blogging, I used a notebook. I was journaling, technically, at that time. It was the best decision I ever made concerning blogging. It helped me to get my thoughts in order before I shared them with the world. And it helped me organize my thoughts about things that were happening in my life.
I would make a list of the topics that I wanted to blog about, and when I had an idea for a post, I would write it down. If one day I didn’t have any new ideas for a post and wanted to publish something, I would look through my notebook to see if one of them sparked a connection for me.
If I wanted to post a blog, I would get something from my notebook and put it into WordPress—that’s when I would start typing it into the computer when I was ready to publish the post. I found that this process was much slower than writing them directly into the computer, but it helped get thoughts out of my head.
To start blogging without a website, all you need is a notebook or any other writing material that you can carry around with you anywhere, which is a good thing since an idea can pop up at any moment. This is a great way to get started when you’re blogging because it’s free and you can do it anywhere. However, it is not as efficient as using an app or software because you don’t always have internet access.
A notebook is a great way to start blogging, but it can be difficult to keep track of all your thoughts, ideas, and drafts—this process wasn’t very formal or organized. When writing a blog in the notebook, it was harder for me to go back and look for the topics I had already covered. I need to start looking into the WordPress site for that, but not everything I wrote in the notebook I decided to get published.
