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 your 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.

Graduating from Central High School in the inner city of Kansas City, Mo., Darrell's life was surrounded by violence, drugs, and alcohol. He was accepted into Tennessee State University in Nashville,TN., where he studied business management. It was there that his life changed forever. He met a Yogi and he started teaching Darrell the art and science of Yoga. Darrell immediately noticed changes in his body, mental acuity, and outlook. He was able to deal with obstacles and trauma with patience. Yoga encouraged him to eat a healthy diet in order to gain maximum effect doing the breathing techniques, movements and postures.  He studied, researched, and wrote papers on the history, science, and philosophy of Yoga. Since then, friends and family know he always had a room in his house called the “Yoga Room”! Even today, 23 years later, as Darrell continues doing yoga in the privacy of his own home, he noticed the increasing worldwide popularity of Yoga. He decided to expand his knowledge of the human body to be able to explain yoga from a clinical perspective, and to articulate why yoga is more than just an exercise. It is a lifestyle of healthy living to keep the body strong, and disease-free, and to keep the mind calm and relaxed with meditation.   In 2016, he enrolled in one of the top Chiropractic Colleges in the country Cleveland University-Kansas City. There he gained an Associates of Arts in Biological Science, Bachelor of Science in Human Biology, and graduated top of the class Magna Cum Laude and Valedictorian. From there he completed courses at Art of Living Foundation and learned the Sudharshan Kriya (SKY) Meditation Technique. Then completed his certification as a Certified Yoga Teacher in the Yoga Skills Method (YSM) at the School of Kemetic Yoga, a registered school with the Yoga Alliance. In addition, completed courses in Black Child and Youth Development and Stress Management for Health and Wellness.
