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.

Lobov and Knight first squared off at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in April in the headlining event of BKFC 5. In a fight that saw both men hit the mat, Lobov won a narrow unanimous decision, separated by just a single point on two judges’ scorecards. Watch the action via the BKFC YouTube Page.

Here is what both fighters had to say last Saturday:


“We’re going to make the second fight even better than the first. The reason we’re doing a rematch so soon is because Jason earned my respect like no fighter has before.

“I promised him a rematch and we said why wait until we’re old and not capable of putting on a show like that? Let’s do it while we’re in our prime and still hungry. No need to wait, let’s do it again.

“The second fight is going to be even more exciting. We have a lot to live up to, but we’re ready.”


“I wouldn’t do anything different than I did in the first fight. We’re probably going to fight even harder this time. I might keep my hands up a little bit more, but we’re going to get down again.

“I can promise you that it’s going to be a fight you don’t want to miss. If you missed the first one, you definitely won’t want to miss this one.”

DAVID FELDMAN, BKFC Founder & President

“The first fight was one of the best in combat sports history. They do not take a backward step in that ring and that’s exactly what you can expect on November 16.

“These two guys are warriors. They exemplify what it takes to be a combat sports fighter. If you’re a combat sports fan, you’re going to have a smile on your face from the beginning of this fight until the end.”
