Anytime someone asks me if they should start a blog, or how they should start a blog, I tell them not to.
Don't start a blog first.
Start with Quora.
I cannot stress enough the importance of starting to share your knowledge (or even just express yourself) on a platform that already has users. Quora, Medium, these places already have a community for you to tap into. If you start a blog with no audience, nobody is going to read what you write or share. Ever.
For me, Quora was the foundation for everything. It's how I built a very sizable audience. It's how I got into major publications. It's how I grew my network. It's how I expanded to other social platforms. And it's how I ultimately launched this blog you are reading right now.
For those new to Quora, I have put together a free e-mail course on why you should get started there first, and how you can become a thought leader in your individual niche.
