I was finally convinced about this when I listened to an interview with Seth Godin on YouTube. He said that way, way back, he started with a newsletter and gravitated to a blog, and this move was super successful. His blog is mega popular. (Search: Seth's blog) He writes everyday, which I won't do. But he takes a laid-back attitude to it. He writes short posts. He talks about whatever is on his mind. He's got plenty on his mind, so no shortage of ideas.
I decided the blog idea was for me. I have set up a new blog on my own website, with a general focus on me, Baha'u'llah, my books, and my thoughts on recent issues.
