    My birthday was 9/30/2014. It was and is scary. I have doubts. But knowing that there are great resources out here gives me reassurance in the reality of infinite possibilities.

    Happy Birthday
    Ivan

    Happy Birthday. My Blog birthday is today, 10/13/2014. Finally got WP. Wrote my first draft. Now if I could figure out how to post and design my website background I’d be set. Still an art in progress.

    1. Matthew Loomis says:    •   5 years Author

      Linda, that’s awesome news! Happy birthday to your blog!

      I’m going to be providing some new information on design themes in the near future. In the meantime, this blog post on blog design tips might be helpful for you: https://www.buildyourownblog.net/blog/blog-design/?utmx=brfdaiblog

      Cheers

  9. Jacqueline says:    •   5 years

    Happy Birthday! My blog “birth” day is 10/7/14. Since I set it up, I have pretty much been frozen with “fear.” I hope that I can get moving soon. 🙂

    1. Matthew Loomis says:    •   5 years Author

      Hi Jacqueline! Your blog’s birthday is the same as my personal b-day! How cool is that.

      Just do it scared. Don’t let your feelings keep you frozen. You can do this!

      You can always email me if you need any help.

      Best,
      Matthew

    1. Matthew Loomis says:    •   5 years Author

      Hi Rick,

      I appreciate your feedback. Thanks for the birthday greeting.

      Your blog is your own property, so you can do whatever you choose as far as what words to use, etc. If I were you I would consider who your target audience is and if that will work for them or not.

      Hope that helps.

    1. Matthew Loomis says:    •   5 years Author

      Glenis, thank you for the birthday wishes and I’m glad you are enjoying all the blog tips.
      Let me know if you need anything else.
      I’m going to hold you to your word here. Email me when you get your blog set up, okay?
      Best,
      Matthew

  13. Lee says:    •   5 years

    Happy belated birthday!! I have been a MAJOR procrastinator. I want to start my blog. REALLY do. I think what’s holding me back is that I am afraid my topics will not have already appeared on tons of other blogs before mine. Blogs that have wide readership.

    Thanks for asking!!!

    Best, Lee

    1. Matthew Loomis says:    •   5 years Author

      Hi Lee,
      Thank you for the birthday greeting.
      Your hesitation based on content is one that others also experience. I encourage you to go ahead and start and set aside those worries. As you get some practice in, you’ll begin to figure out how to create posts that are unique to your voice. Even if the topic has been covered, you can still bring a unique perspective to it. That will improve over time. Don’t worry about it starting out. Does this make sense?
