  1. Choose a blogging platform from one of the many options available. Not all blog platforms are created equally to be sure and you'll want to make your choice based on the capabilities most important to you.
  2. Then,  set up your blog either by joining the community where your blog is hosted or by uploading the platform to your own domain (more about hosting your blog in future posts.)
  3. Next, add some feeds if possible. Check your particular blog platform to see how this is done and, if the platform that you're contemplating doesn't easily accomodate feeds, you may want to seriously reevaluate your choice.
  4. Last, create one or more Google Alerts for your topic to keep track of the latest information and articles on which to base your own posts.

Stop the presses!…and start a blog instead.
