Get started with your first AHFNY Blog

A blog is a type of website that focuses on written content, also known as a blog post. a blog is usually a personal perspective on a specific topic or topics that allow readers to directly engage with the author. At the bottom of a blog you will find a “comments” section where readers can leave comments with the author of the blog. Having the ability to interact with your readers will help to further the connection between the blogger/Author and the reader.


At the core, blogging is about sharing your knowledge with your audience. Selecting a topic that you are passionate about makes the process of starting a successful blog so much easier. Writing about things that you are truly interested or passionate about should be evident and is what will keep your readers engaged.


To read or contribute to the blog section of the newsletter you can select the "BLOG" link which can be found under the "AHFNY MEMBERS ONLY" Menu drop-down as depicted above.




Now you are at the main "BLOG" interface where you can read or search through the categories of Blogs that may be of interest to you. However, in order to interact with or create your own blog you need to follow the instructions to "Sign Up" as an AHFNY MEMBER by following the steps below.
