How to Let Your Friends and Family Know You Started a Blog

Are you planning on starting a blog soon? Maybe you have already started a blog. Congratulations! That was a big and bold move, but maybe you are struggling with how to let friends and family know that you started a blog.

How to Let Your Friends and Family Know You Started a Blog

Remember that everyone has their own reasons for starting up a blog. Perhaps you just want to keep up with friends and family or maybe you are looking to share your expertise on a certain subject. When it comes to starting the blog, you get to decide what you want to talk about and who your audience will be.

It’s important to know that while having a blog takes a lot of work, there are tons of rewards along the way. However, letting people know about why you’re blogging can be hard. I’ve listed some great ways to let your friends and family know that you are starting this blog.

Of course, the best way to let someone know you have a blog is to simply tell them, but that’s always easier said than done. You can’t always invite someone over for coffee to let them know what you’ve done. While there are no exact ways for each blogger to tell their friends and family, perhaps you could benefit from these ideas.

Go to and design and order business cards, or you can have someone else design them and you can print right at home. Handing out these business cards are a great way to tell others about your blogging.

Tell them in person: For those who may not appreciate all of the aforementioned ways, you may way to tell them about your new adventure in person. You want everyone to be happy for you, so make sure you tell these people face to face. You know, the ones who aren’t on social media, but that you want to keep in the loop.
