First Friday

The pool’s closed for maintenance this week — see you next Friday!

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 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 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. Hello I posted my first blog back in January and I have 5 posts so far so I’m not sure if I qualify for this First Friday feedback. My goal going forward is to to post weekly. This is the first time I’ve looked into what support if available, so thank you for consider me as a newbie!

    1. I like you post on happiness. Don’t forget to include an about page. I wanted to know more about you after reading your post, and you might consider changing the background picture on your theme. It still shows the default. Good writing 👍🏻 good luck.

  2. Hello fellow bloggers.
    I hope you all are enjoying the blogging. It is more fun when done keeping other bloggers in mind. The best of being a blogger is to know other people, what their views are and how their life has changed by certain experiences.
    So those who are new in this sphere, drop your link so that we get to know more and more about new bloggers. Looking forward to know about new bloggers.
    Hugs and kisses

    1. Great post! Lovely photos.
      One thing I noticed your line spacing changed below the photos. If this was deliberate, please ignore, otherwise you might like to amend so that the whole post looks the same on screen.
      Hope this helps 🙂

      1. Yes thank you! For some reason the line spacing changed from when I was editing on the computer and trying to publish from my phone. I was worried that would happen. I’m going to go back and look at it today.

    1. As it’s a beauty blog, maybe have featured images to engage the reader. Visual images and captivating headers are catchy.

      Great posts notwithstanding.

  4. Hello, I’m new to blogging. I’ve been thinking about sharing some random thoughts and writings onto the web (something like an online journal) for a while, just to keep my scribblings in one place. I’m thinking of writing my blog in two languages (Indonesian and English) with translations in the future… But for now, here’s something I’ve written in English… Thank you for your kind attention 😀

      1. Thank you!
        In Indonesian “biru bubuk” means “powder blue” (biru = blue, bubuk = powder). It’s a color that I like. 😀
        While Coerulus is actually Latin that also means blue. I google translated this one. Thus Jurnal Coerulus is simply “Blue Journal”.

    1. Hello, sounds like you have wonderful plans for your blogging. I would encourage you to include posts in both languages! I find bilingual communication to add a dimension of vitality to writing.


      1. I see what you mean… I’ll have to look into it on a computer (commuting to work atm). Its weird, because I did get some likes on posts… Thanks for letting me know 🙂

  5. Hi

    Im Juliet and I just started with WordPress. I found out about First Friday only on this Monday and I’ve been on the lookout since then lol.

    I’d appreciate reviews and feedback on my blog. I’m also planning to get a domain name once I have put up posts in every category.

    Thus, I don’t have a lot just yet because it’s exam season but I’d appreciate feedback based on what’s going on. Thank you 😊
