First Friday

New blogger? Welcome! Share a link to your first post, say hello to 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. Great post and I like your blog. Looks very fashionable and modern! We all have our struggles and it is entirely up to us how we choose to respond to those struggles. Good luck with your blog.

    1. Welcome 🙂

      I noticed that you still have some placeholder text in your blog’s sidebar, to the right of your post — you can remove or edit that by going to My Site > Customize > Widgets. Look for the Text Widget!

      One small thing: I noticed that you still have some placeholder text in your blog’s sidebar, to the left of your post — you can remove or edit that by going to My Site > Customize > Widgets. Look for the Text Widget!

  2. Hello. I am new to WordPress but I have blogged before. This blog is very different for me from the ones previous. It’s more personal and exposing because I’m trying to do something new. its daunting putting things out there but that’s what it’s all about. Getting real with myself and pushing my barriers. Any feedback is appreciated and i apologize in advance because I am unfamiliar with wp format. So if it looks a little messy, please bear with me, or feel free to guide my lost soul😊 Kia ora Koutou

    1. Very interesting post! I so agree with your points on minimizing the behaviors of attention seeking kids. My toddler does a few of those things from time to time and I definitely pick and choose my battles, while trying not to give any kind of attention to his bad behavior. Great post! 🙂

    2. I was one of those little brats doing anything BUT sitting still and learning. Disrupting others, annoying the teacher, no punishment affected me. Just a selfish punk kid. I am SO sorry! I wish I could find my teachers from back then and apologize.

  3. My hubby just started a blog here at WordPress. I am so happy he’s writing. I think he’s a natural story teller, but not one to post on places like this. He’s a little shy. He wrote a sweet story about an old photographer and his parents, that involved him. A soon to be born him. You can read his new post at https://napropasti.wordpress.com/2017/04/21/pregnant-walk-in-the-park/ . If you have “likes” or comments, please post them in his blog and not here.
