If I Started a Blog Today . . .

. . . I’d . . .

1. Use WordPress.org as the platform.

2. Host it with a reliable host like MediaTemple.

3. Burn the site’s feed with FeedBurner.

4. Install a comments subscription plugin.

5. Install a “recent comments” plugin.

6. Install “comments relish” to thank first time commenters.

7. Create a custom, professional, design for the site.

8. Install WP-Cache so I’m ready for the day the site gets a spike in traffic.

9. Write, write, write.

10. Announce the site to my network of friends using Twitter, Facebook, etc.

What would you add?
