Choosing a web presence for your blog or podcast

Hello readers (and listeners),

After my arm healed from patting myself on my back with my first blog post and shout-out, I realized how out of order it was if you are interested in starting your own Swinger or Lifestyle blog or podcast. Oh well, I guess it’s bound to happen and will probably happen again.

In an attempt to start at the beginning of creating a Blog and / or Podcast you need to select a name for your content. For ours, we have chosen Lifestyle Out Loud and the internet version of lifestyleoutloud.com. When Ms. Square came up with a few name choices for our journal, my job began in searching down what was already taken and what may be available.

Once you have a name, and identify you can create a web presence in a few ways. One way is to reserve a space on someone else’s website such as Blogspot or WordPress where it would look like yourproject.blogspot.com or yourproject.wordpress.org. The ways I’ve just described are free. Free, free, free which starting out, especially on a budget can be great. As you can probably guess, we didn’t choose this method.

My largest criticism to the method above is the fact that you cannot completely control over how your website looks. What I mean, is that on the free sites they may put a header on top of your site or the bottom of your site with links to go to the next blog or previous blog or to search out other blogs housed within their larger site. It makes me shake my head as the first thing people may see, even before your content, are links to leave your site. What!?!

Since I’m a rambler, I’ve decided to break this post into two. Part two coming in a day or two.

Mr. Square

    Thank you for not only regaling us with your journey & exploits but your ‘pay-it-forward’ efforts to help others document (via blog/podcast) any potential journey/exploits they might have.
