Can someone help me, I'm looking to start a blog to occupy myself over the remainder of the summer break. I have two ideas for what I'm going to post on them. Can you give me your opinions on which one might be more popular and what website/platform I should use and any tips for a newbie at blogging.

So the first one is a technology centred blog where I will post frequent articles about current news and new technology and give my views on them, primarily mobile phones but also other similar tech. I will also do the occasional in depth review of certain products. The blog will also include gaming and reviews about games and my opinions on them.

The second idea is one about sports, primarily football. I would post frequently about current news stories regarding football and my opinions on them. Also, match reviews for certain games and give my opinion on different things in the world of football.

That's a tough one.

I think that football blogging may be a lesser-saturated area, making your chances of getting hits slightly higher.

Then again, the gaming/tech niche is a bit more focused and, likely, more interested in reading through content.

Either way, just have fun expressing your passions!

Both are very popular areas, it means a large potential audience but also alot of other similar material online already.

Are you looking to start a free blog or one hosted from your own domain name?

Some of the most popular free ones are Wordpress.com and Blogger.com

Don't expect a huge number of visitors though. My friend just started a blog last week and has only had about 50 unique visitors so far.

I'm looking to start a free blog. One of my main aims isn't really to get loads of people reading it, it's more just for myself to get writing a bit more and other people reading and giving feedback is a bonus to be honest.

Thank you

Do you have any tips on writing blogs and the frequency of my posts and anything else that might be useful to know?

None to give, specifics anyhow.

The blogging format is so brilliant because you don't have to stick to any criteria in writing style or frequency.

Of course, it is better to post as often as possible.

It would certainly help if you started sharing your content within those communities: through the TSR, Reddit etc.
