    This is a great post on getting started. Fortunately I was in IT for a few years so I have had some experience with WordPress and website design. My husband recently joined the military and we have our first baby on the way. The goal is to be able to be a stay at home mom, but if I could supplement with something like a blog that would be great! One major thing I am struggling with determining is the theme of my blog. I have so many interests that don’t really fit together. I am a personal trainer so fitness and nutrition are a big part of my life and I love passing tips and healthy recipes along, but I am also a DIYer, so I feel I could provide instruction on certain projects, etc. is it appropriate to have a blog of many topics?

      That’s a great question! Many bloggers integrate various topics into their writing. Just make sure you represent each topic proportionately on your site, so your readers come to expect a variety of content from your blog.
