What's your experience starting a blog?
I'm thinking of 'spreading my wings' as it were and starting some form of blog, but have no real idea how to go about it, I've put one together on WordPress (an old hub that's been de-featured but with a little tweaking). Part of the reason is to see if some of the old hubs will get more traffic in other places but I've no real idea how to go about things like finding a webhost so I was wondering what experiences others have had in 'walking this path'?
Things like do I delete from Hubpages if I've used an old unfeatured hub?
another great platform is blogger. I guess you may have to delete those hubs you've used there and are on HP
if you are planning to post the hubs here elsewhere, you have to delete here first. But I suggest you could write a new post, similar to the same topic elsewhere
I blog for the Institute of Industrial Engineers, in addition to Hubpages and writing for a variety of magazines.
The professional blog raises my profile and helps me get paid work as a technical writer.
But making money off blogging, unless it can lead to sales of your books or expertise, is very rare.
Thanks for the information. I think I expected that and it's probably more about raising a profile at the moment (though the idea of doing a 'plant pot' garden blog was kind of my daughter's idea and I think she wants us to work together on it!

We know that hubs that do not do well will drag the hubs with potential. When do you delete? How much traffic per month that would make...

Should I delete my hubs that are not featured due to quality?I have tweaked and tweaked, and apparently they are on a "black list".

and probably all accounts comming from MN, in the account that the state had passed a law to collect Internet taxes.

I was an active writer on helium.com.I want to move some articles from them to here and just off the web. I cant figure out how to delete the articles as their policy seems to be a little tight on deleting content. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks
