4 Things To Know Before You Begin A Blog

There’s a common question you get when people find out that you write a blog and share your thoughts. That question is:

What do I need to know when I begin a blog?

It’s a simple question with a lot of different answers. It’s also a tough question to answer.

This question was asked, once again, recently.

It thrills me when people want to know how to blog. Why? Because blogging is a lot of fun.

My former youth pastor created a blog. My nephew’s wife has started a blog. And, most recently, our new pastor’s daughter has started a blog (Go over to these blogs and leave some love!).

They’ve all asked for a little bit of advice on blogging. And, today, I wanted to share the 4 things you should know when you begin blogging.

Leadership Lessons And Quotes From Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens

A Reel Leadership Article

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away people once had a positive image of Star Wars. Their memories included Han Solo being frozen in carbonite, Luke Skywalker kissing his sister, and Darth Vader being defeated.

Then, not too long ago, those memories were replaced with Jar Jar Binks and podracing. There was a disturbance within the force.

Never trust a Wookie

Chewbacca became a bit violent

Today, the force was balanced once again. Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens released. And it reminded us all why Star Wars keeps us coming back.

We see new heroes such as Rey and Finn rise up. We see our old friends Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess (Now governor) Leia, and Luke Skywalker make appearances.

It was familiar. It was also refreshing.

So, that leads to the age-old question: What can Star Wars teach us about leadership?
