This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.


Amanda Serrano’s combat sports record is impeccable; it truly speaks for itself.  Serrano is the only boxer to win recognized world titles in seven weight classes, as well as being the first woman and Puerto Rican to win world titles in five, six, and seven weight classes.  She has worn gold at each of the following weights: 115, 118, 122, 126, 130,1 35, and 140 pounds.

Add two professional mixed martial arts fights to her résumé , and we are talking about one of the most dangerous female strikers on the planet.  One might say she is “The Real Deal.”

But Amanda Serrano wants more.

“The Real Deal” Serrano now wants to test herself against “The Queen of Bare Knuckle Boxing,” current featherweight Police Gazette World Diamond Champion and WBF Latin America champion, “Rowdy” Bec Rawlings.

“I’d love a shot at that title,” Serrano wrote on Twitter.

Rawlings responded “Take the gloves off & fight for my championship belt & then we put the gloves on & fight for yours”

Serrano, thrilled with the idea said, “Let’s Goooo!!! I’m with it.”

Rawlings has three wins with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.  She defeated Alma Garcia by way of doctor stoppage (TKO) at BKFC 1.  She then went on to garner a split decision win over Britain Hart at the next show, followed by a unanimous decision over Cecilia Flores in Cancun, Mexico at BKFC 4.

Tell us Bare Knuckle FC fans…… Do you want to see Amanda Serrano take on “Rowdy” Bec Rawlings?  Let us know.
