UPDATE: IgniteRock has now rebranded to Khalifa Media and this site will now be the hub of everything related to my business.
This was always going to be a tricky thing to do – what to write in The First Post?
The way I see it, there are two ways of doing it:
- You can hit the ground running and write an article which will help you with your business and your site. For example, what to look out for when using other sites’ images (hey, that’s a possible blog post in the future).
- The other way is to introduce myself to you and get to know you first instead of bombarding you with facts, tips, guides and advice on running your WordPress site.
Let’s put it this way.
If you went to a party and someone you don’t know came up to you and started giving you advice, maybe advice about, I don’t know, your finances.
Would you be receptive to that? From a complete stranger? For the first time?
Or would you prefer that person to have the courtesy to introduce themselves and get to know you first? You know, the old-fashioned back and forth of saying who you are, what you do and get to know each other. If you want, talk about the weather to spice things up (just so you know, it won’t).
And then gradually build the relationship from there.
I prefer the latter.
So in the end, it was a simple enough decision for me to decide on the topic of The First Post.
