Set up your tools

This is the first part (of four) in my series entitled, So You Want To Start Blogging…

Electricians, mechanics, doctors and carpenters all invest heavily in the tools of their trade. Publishing on the web is no different. You need a set of tools to help you communicate with your readers. In this section, I’m going to walk you through the tools you need to set up in order to start talking to your audience.

  1. Custom domain name and email
  2. WordPress
  3. Twitter
  4. Facebook
  5. Google+
  6. Mailing Lists
  7. The shiny new thing that just came out last week!

Sit tight and enjoy the reading. And do let me know if I’ve missed anything or if you disagree with any of my advice.
