Static Content

Is it becoming clear what your blog is going to be about and how you’re going to present yourself? Developing a blog takes a lot of time, so simply try to do your best for your first blog.

In this step, we are going to work on what is called the “Static Content.” As we’ll see later on, these will be “Pages” of your blog that you’ll publish once, and edit from time to time if you ever need to.

The “About” and “About Me” pages, are usually added at the top of a blog (in what is called the “header”) as links in a “primary menu”. The “Terms of Service” and “Privacy Policy”, are usually at the bottom (in the “footer”)

  • The first two pages are something you’ve been working on already; you can have fun with them and get as creative as you wish.
  • The other two are very technical, and you’ll be able to complete them once you know exactly what you’re going to offer at your blog.

I strongly encourage you to work on these four pages diligently. If you aim to succeed with your blog, you might as well behave like a pro blogger since day one.

As you write these pages, you may feel you still don’t have all the information you need… because you don’t. On the next step, where you’ll begin writing your posts, you’ll get more ideas and the concept of your blog may even shift a little bit.

So, in this step’s activities, work on all the details you can think of. You’ll still have time to spice things up. However, bear in mind that leaving the static content for the launching day can kill that launch.

Now, let’s get to it!
