I have heard this before that, “The first thing you need to decide when you build your blog is what you want to accomplish with it, and what it can do if successful”, and it seems to make a lot of sense, except for the fact that most people who start blogging have no clue what they are doing. The more posts that you write and read, the more you will learn and since everything changes over time, I have to disagree with this quote. It is nice to have ambition, but as the saying goes, “Man plans and God laughs”, so the only way to survive anything is to be adaptable. Since everything doesn’t always work out for everyone all of the time, oy is probably a good idea to have a backup plan for your master plan, or you can just go with the flow. It is hard to plan when you don’t know what obstacles you will encounter, and the only way to learn is to get started, so I would tell anyone who decides that they want to start a blog, to go ahead, but don’t plan on being successful, unless you are willing to put in a lot of hard work. I think that a better quote would have been what the Beatles said, “You say you got a real solution. Well you know. We’d all love to see the plan.”
