Huzzah, it’s Ask Black Witch! Where you send me questions and I answer ‘em (or in the case of stupid questions – tear them apart). Here are the questions for this month:

Hey there great blog! Does running a blog like this take a lot of work? I’ve very little understanding of computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic however I simply needed to ask. Thanks!

I always like getting blogger questions!

A blog like BW does take some work and since it’s just one person running it, I can’t easily expand BW where I want it to go. Sometimes I’m late with a column! But that’s up to the blogger how much stuff they want going on with their blog.

You don’t need a whole lot of computer programming skills to run your own blog but some basic coding wouldn’t hurt and would even make transferring posts a little easier from a word processor to a blogging platform.

I would recommend you plan things out before getting started. Like, figuring out what you really want to write about, if there’s a whole lot of material in it and how frequently do you want to post, things like that. Once you plan them out, the rest should be smooth running.



My birthday is Tues so I’m pretty glad this ABW was fairly light (not gonna answer the dumber questions, that’s for later), here’s a kitty stealing a dollar!

And a short film of the daughters of Black Lightning, Thunder and Lightning, that is ridiculously cute and awesome:
