Hello everyone,


I am new to the site, and I am thinking of starting my own blog, I studied Journalism at University and I love writing, especially when it is something I want to write about, but before i begin, I just wanted to pick some more experienced brains.


A few of my thoughts include:


Targetting - does my blog have to have a theme, or could it be just as interesting if it is whatever happens to of sparked my interest at the time...


Professionalism - how professional should the writing be, is it acceptable to write from a more casual stand point


And finally Twitter, I have some crossed wires when it comes to my Twitter account, I use it to post things that interest me within my interest, but I also us it as a simple 'Social Network' to talk to my friends and generally share with the world what I had for dinner, or how mean I am to my partner. Is this OK or should I use it on a solely professional or solely personal basis?


What are your thoughts...


Thank you in advance

Great post, in reading I learnt quite a bit. Some great stuff from Courntney on the do's and dont's. Thanks.

Courtney--If the need arose and I was tasked to find OldManSmell--my instinks would tell me to follow the odor.
(sorry--I couldn't resist...Tim S. understands)

Thanks, Valentino! And your comment about how to refer to you made me smile. It also reminded me that one of my first Twitter followers was called "OldManSmell." I wonder if he's still out there...?

Thank you everyone for your advice, I am looking forward to getting started, I have been noting down things, that Amy says, are things that I have an opinion that I would like to get off my chest!

Courtney, thank you for the articles, I will read them with great interest.

Thanks everyone, it fills me with confidence that this discussion has so much great feedback :)


Chantelle, i subscribe to a site called "Daily Writing Tips".  There are several sites like that might be a great help.  Google them might be of interest to you as you take pen in hand.  :)
Thank you Sandra, I hope the weather is nice this weekend, watching the partner playing football and my notebook sounds just perfect :)
