Starting Your Own Blog: Resources, Tools and How To

Right Off The Roll Duct Tape Creations

Blogging is something that has become a prominent part of my life within the past 5 years. When I was in high school, I had a personal blog that I was obsessed with updating. During my later years of school, I reduced the number of posted that I put up and eventually deleted all of the content and shut down the site. When I was in my first year of University, I created a blog website for you Duct Tape business where I put up photos and promotions. This website is currently under construction again as all of my content was deleted in a file transfer, but hopefully it will be up again soon. The website is called Feel free to check it out.

Back to blogging, I started blogging when I was a young teenager and therefore it was not difficult when I was asked to develop a professional blog in my ESCI 302 class in the Winter 2015 semester. This was an interesting experience for me as I had to think about the difference between a business blog, personal blog and a professional educator blog. I really enjoyed creating this blog and it came in handy when I was asked to have a blog in this fall 2015 semester for my ESST class. In the section below I have created a collection of useful tool and resources as well as how to’s on creating a blog. Enjoy!
