Ground Rules for New Bloggers

Good advice here. Especially about creating ground rules. Make some rules for yourself. It’s easier to make decisions when you can ask Past You what you did last time. If you have a rule not to blog about breaking news or gossip, then it’s easy to refer to it when you’re tempted.

Ground rules are important for who you let in. This is your blog. Your space. Your little corner of the world. You don’t have to give a voice to anyone in it you don’t choose to. You’re not a politicians having to win favor. You’re not a company worried about making payroll or earnings reports.

You’re a person. Or people.

You decide.

You make the rules and can change them when it suits you. If something isn’t working, change it.

Nerds.

There will be plenty of devices for everyone.
The PS5 will have a long life. The new Apple thing will be the old Apple thing in a year.

If you didn’t trade money for nothing today fear not. You will get to trade money for a thing later.

It will be just as good.

The only reason to have Facebook is to keep tabs on your parents before a visit to make sure they’re acting responsibly.
