First Friday

New blogger? Welcome! Share a link to your first post, say hello to some other new faces, and find your first few readers.

For other help:
If you’re not new and are looking for support or feedback, the Community Pool is the place for you!

For technical questions, visit the WordPress.com Support Forums.

To learn more about blogging, take a Blogging U. course.

To find, copy, and paste your link:
Head to your blog’s home page — not your dashboard, your blog itself. Click on the title of your post to open the individual post.

Highlight and copy the URL you see in your browser’s address bar, and paste the entire URL into a comment here.

Welcome to First Friday, a weekly open thread where any new blogger can share a link to his or her very first post with the larger WordPress.com community. To share your first post with us, copy and paste the link right into a comment here. If you’re not new, you can still be a part of First Fridays: visit a link or two, and leave the blogger a like or comment.

Please don’t use this as a space to share your first post…. that you published three years ago; ditto for simply sharing your latest post. Posts should have been published within the last month, and should be your first post. We’ll remove other posts to keep this space focused for new bloggers.

We ask that you help us keep this space focused by following a few additional guidelines:

  • We encourage anyone who shares a link to visit a few other bloggers. New readers for all!
  • When commenting, the third time is not the charm: don’t share the same link repeatedly, or in multiple First Friday threads. We’ll remove repeat posts.
  • Link directly to your new post, rather than to your blog generally — it makes it that much easier for folks to like the post or leave you comments.
  • Avoid repeated “Follow for a follow!” comments. (Tip: if you’re trying to build a readership, it’s much more effective to visit and comment on individual bloggers.)
  • To keep from losing your place while you visit others’ blogs, right-click on links to open them in a new tab or window.

  1. I’m a new wanna-be mommy blogger (ugh, another one of those? I know, but hear me out!). We all have our own voices and experiences as parents and I love reading other parenting blogs out there but you can’t always connect with one 100% of the time. So I want to provide my own perspective, one that I feel isn’t really covered by the conventional, popular parenting blogs; and hopefully help connect on parts where not everyone has been able to.

    I’m also a self-diagnosed Pinterest junkie and I want to test out all the things on there from delicious to weird to both!

  2. Hey you guys!! My blog is called fishgulps and it’s basically one of the most random things ever. You’ll find relationship advice, recipes (with gluten free options) and lots of stories about my animals. However, my ultimate goal for blogging is to have an outlet for my emotions as well as hopefully bring some awareness to addiction and mental illness. Here is my very first post!!! https://fishgulp.wordpress.com/2016/07/23/10-ways-to-love-yourself-when-someone-you-love-is-an-addict/

  3. Hi everyone. A friend of mine and I have been writing short stories and recording them as audio dramas, so I started my blog as a way to share those. You’ll also find the occasional post about video games and other randomosities of my life. Go check out my very first post, Voices. It’s a short story that I wrote, and if you look elsewhere on my site, you can find the audio drama recording of it as well! https://pundivided.wordpress.com/2016/07/18/voices/

  4. Hi everyone! This is my first blog. If anyone has feedback or suggestions that would be awesome. I’ve learned blogging is tough! I could sit all day messing around with photos and how to say things just right. At some point, it’s time for the official send off…and here she goes!

    This is a product of my experiences as a mother who loves to talk leadership.

    1. I like your about page!

      Just an idea: for easier access, you can link the reviews you’ve done to the names of the books on the “List of Reviewed Books.”

    1. I love your post about introversion! At the same time your blog looks raw and is not set up fully quite yet! Head to your site, and have fun editing all the settings! 🙂

  7. Hi everyone, my blog is twelvebiscuits.wordpress.com. It’s just a personal reflection and a commentary on my life really. I’ve always wanted to write something and this seemed like a good place to start!
