This is a question I’ve gotten a number of times over the years via my contact form. It’s really pretty simple. I enjoy writing and riding roller coasters. It also helps that I work in the Internet field so I’ve been able to take what I’ve learned professionally and applied it to my hobby. Anyone can become a roller coaster critic or take their coaster enthusiasm to the Web. I recommend Blogger or WordPress as free places to host your site while you’re getting started. If you’re interested, you might want to read these 5 Tips for New Bloggers that I wrote for my 5 year anniversary. Also, there’s a really good guide at eHow entitled: How to Be a Roller Coaster Critic. I have to think that I had something to do with that article. 🙂 View more Ask Me posts or submit a question of your own here. 2 Responses Cade January 11, 2012 I have a mac. Do you know much about iWeb being a good or bad way to start a site? Reply The Coaster Critic January 11, 2012 I've got PCs, but I just checked it out and it looks pretty simple. I'd be able to speak about more specifics on Blogger or WordPress though. Plus, those two already have large blogging communities which may come in handy as you gain a following. I'm not sure what the community is like over at iWeb. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
