[Need tips] Starting a new Design Blog/ porrtfolio/ Resources/ Free stuff!
I am soon going to start my new Blog+portfolio. Its basicly my 1st Blog ever to come live. I always had a portfolio, but then saw many designers had blogs on which they shared their daily lives, experiences and stuff like that.
So , i m too starting one, which will have all my life Streamed up there.
Ok NOW, i want Tips and ideas over How to release it with a nice opening 9call it a Bang).
i am writing Articles so that the blog doesn't look too empty..and planing for some free stuff like themes or icons. Are there Any other Pre /post release stuff which r to be taken care of ? An opening is only once..and i dont want to waste it! So i really want it to be BIG!
I would have atleast a months worth of posts on there before you launch it. You want to give people plenty of reasons (content) to come back.
Plus it makes the person feel like they just "discovered" a site that is already going.
As far as promotion do you have contacts or a list of past clients? I would email them and tell them all to check it out and BOOKMARK it.
