There is so much pressure on what to write for a first post. Ideally, you want it to be insightful, and witty, and inspiring, and just so damn good that it’ll bring in hordes of readers to your site after seeing it shared across facebook and twitter and pinterest and beamed to all nations from the international space station (which totally should have a cool nickname, but I can’t seem to find one. My vote? Talon. Why? Because it just sounds cool.)
So the flipside to all this of course is that there really aren’t any readers yet, and so it’ll be a slow process bringing people in. Talon or no. (totally fits) And the way to bring people in is to provide content. Make it worth their while. Show them that you can hold up your end of this social contract by rewarding their pilgrimage to your humble cyberspace abode with a hearty meal of prose. Or pictures. Or video. (see prev: “Make it worth their while”) So more posts shall henceforth be written and… posted. To provide what we call “a content base”. Not sure what other people call it, or really what it’s supposed to be called and all – that is is just what we call it. Like right now. Because I just thought it up.
Blogging is fun.
Therefore, in conclusion, I suppose I shouldn’t really be getting to anxious about what to write in this all important, seminal, blog-defining first post. Because inevitably, it’ll just get shuffled down the list under other, better, more informed and much more thought out posts that shall come after. You know, the ones the peoples will actually see once they find their way to our little submarine, following the map provided to them by the all-mighty Talon.
But until then, welcome. The journey begins now…
