Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

I am a passionate Physical educator . I have been teaching for many years in schools in institutes and sports clubs. This is why the last 15 years I have dedicated my personal time in studying in-depth the needs of a human and especially young children . After a lot of research, I come out that the most important development of all, for students growth is personal awareness. Therefore I created a program that started as a pilot program in the school that t I work in, ACS Athens Community school, and from 2016 until today 2021 this program continues and has a very positive impact on students lives, not just in their skills but emotionally thinking and physically. I have studied MBSR Mindful instructor, specialized in Play therapy, Masters in Child Psychology, and attended various seminars and wellness programs. I am a Family /Kids Yoga teacher and have taught for many years kids with disabilities and abused children volunteering. I have presented my work at various Conferences abroad and in Athens regarding the MBS program /methodology. My work and methodology have been published in various magazines and in the i2flex Book of science. my mission is to establish this methodology in many schools worldwide as I believe there will be a new generation stronger than ever in Mind Body and Soul.
