Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.

Surprise with a 31 Day Calendar Movement A 31 day calendar movement is a clock component that enables you to build a rather outstanding wrist watch. The movement reveals the day of the month in addition to the hour, min, as well as secondly of the existing time. Let's check out a little bit how you can make this component of your home decor or that of a close friend or relative. clock inserts wholesale The 31 day calendar movement is a specialty component not extremely different from any kind of other movement or electric motor. The primary distinction is that it has a spindle for revolving a fourth hand in addition to the normal three. It additionally requires an unique dial adjusted to function specifically with the motor. Unlike the system of equipments, weights, pulleys, pendulums, as well as escapements that drove conventional clocks mechanically, modern-day clock movements are driven by a quartz crystal and also run electronically. The function behind each approach equals, that of continuously revolving the hands separately as well as at exactly the ideal angular speed to ensure that the timepiece is constantly reporting the proper time of day in regards to the position of each hand versus a history clock face. The means this was done mechanically was to make use of an interlinked collection of in different ways sized equipments that established precise proportions in between sets of hands. This is how 60 ticks of the pre-owned created the minute hand to tick once, as well as exactly how 60 ticks of the minute hand triggered the hour hand to tick once. However the digital method of doing this is by using a collection of electronic checking registers. The quartz crystal vibrates at a really high as well as exact frequency, creating a series of pulses while doing so. A collector in software application keeps a running count of the pulses and after that triggers actions when certain limits of the collected overall are crossed. These activities are just the ticking of the hands, just as in the mechanical technique. The result is to partition the crystal vibration frequency to the speed for seconds, minutes, and hours. Nonetheless, it is much easier to expand on the digital technique than on the mechanical. One can expand the cycle from twelve hours to twenty-four hour, for instance, or reveal various other sensations by presenting a 4th hand. And all that is included is a basic software application change. The 24-hour style can be conveniently estimated (in both methods) via the easy expedience of coupling the numbers from 13 to 24 with those from 1 to 12 and printing both members of each pair. But to accomplish a true 24-hour clock the two-dozen numbers need to be spread across one traverse of the area. The hour hand therefore completes its cycle in one complete day as opposed to half a day. To show the day of the week the center of the dial is noted right into 7 equal wedges and printed with the names of the days in order. A (fairly short) 4th hand ticks into its new placement (a change of 51.4 °) when the hour hand completes a 24-hour cycle. Similarly, a 31-day calendar movement uses a fourth hand to show the date in the present month. Below, however, it makes even more feeling to print the 31 numbers along the very side of the dial's circumference because or else they would crowd each other. The fourth hand in this instance would be reasonably long, potentially also longer than the minute hand. This particular movement has a cycle that varies in between 28 and 31 days. Obviously it requires either hand-operated changes or advanced software program calibration for months with much less than 31 days. There are also movements that make use of a fourth hand to reveal tide degree, based on a day-to-day cycle of 24-hour as well as 50 minutes. Once more, this is simple to achieve in software, though calibration controls need to be provided for the individual to represent local conditions. As the visitor needs to currently understand, every one of the extended-time styles we have been reviewing are straightforward for the producer to implement. Yet, every one of them tend to drop the jaws of their customers. You too can astonish with these specialized clocks, consisting of one utilizing a 31 day calendar movement.
