Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

The Ins and Outs of Church Buildings Church buildings posture some intriguing problems for the industrial professional. In lots of aspects, church buildings resemble sports facilities or plane hangars, in that they normally consist of large open areas and tall ceilings. However this is only the start, as many variables have to be thought about. general contractor Church structures are commonly created from steel as a result of their voluminous insides and also the consequent requirement for really sturdy support frameworks. This remains in contrast to the traditional churches made of wood with spires and potentially a tower for sounding bells. In some cases parishes miss the expression of their faith's practices in the church itself, and also this can be a source of stress that the service provider can not disregard. Without a doubt, churches are fairly different from businesses, although the huge churches are obscuring this distinction. But also there politics often enters into play, and also church structure committees are infamous for getting involved in heated disagreements over priorities as well as appearances. The basic specialist needs to be gotten ready for this kind of point and also recognize exactly how to navigate the seemingly unimportant yet pet concerns (for a person) if his task is ever before going to obtain funded and green-lighted. If one isn't mindful, it is also simple to obtain slowed down inadvertently in the information of paint colors or what will certainly make the outside attractive, all to the hinderance of focusing on what construction products and techniques ought to be used. This added dimension to building spiritual piles plays a large role in establishing what structure technique or strategy is chosen, both for the owners and for the contractor. To put it simply, an option should be made between the design-bid-build approach and design-build. The even more standard design-bid-build approach finishes each stage of the task prior to proceeding to the following phase, and also it tends to need more participation of the owner throughout. Design-build places even more responsibility on the specialist, providing him better adaptability as well as enabling him to create all job facets basically in parallel. The basic specialist usually prefers design-build, yet to accomplish this kind of setup frequently needs wonderful skill on his component in convincing the church board to produce their precious control to him. We understand that these remarks can encounter as condescending, but it remains in everybody's benefit to stay clear of spiraling down into a type of food battle. There always appears to be one or more congregants who intend to have a say in such an essential as well as durable task, however if the search board focuses on discovering a professional they can whole-heartedly trust, they will certainly be much better off by transforming whatever over to him and leaving his way. Certainly, it then becomes imperative to develop safeguards right into the contract for everyone's security. If the design-build method is chosen, the specialist will aid the owners in creating a layout that will entirely satisfy their requirements. Together they will compile a collection of specs without needing to send them out for quotes, as the contractor will have the experience that notifies one of the most appropriate architectural team to work with. The proprietors therefore really feel that they are giving input without wading into waters over their heads. The owners require to concentrate on the high goal of having a new church building in which to worship and not to get slowed down in the daily construction details that would certainly distract them from that objective. For his component, the contractor requires to be conscious of government laws and also permits, scheduling deadlines, and safety factors to consider. If both parties depend on each various other and also think obligations for their corresponding tasks, there is no reason this job can not be unified and a true blessing for all. Keep this suggestions uppermost in idea and also you will certainly understand all the important ins and outs of church structures.
