Another Blogging Question
« on: November 21, 2013, 09:29:36 AM »
Question for RPCV's and FPCV's how soon did you start your blog (get used to layout and all the jazz that goes with a blog) before leaving in country? Or did you start one once you were in country?

We started ours prior to leaving.  I wanted to learn all about it while here in the states.  Plus anything you learn and post about during the application process is useful to other people.  Go for it.

Thanks Marion! I haven't received invite yet. I might start once I know where I am going (assuming I receive an invitation). Although, I have been writing entries already. I have always been a writer, so it is natural thing for me to do.

Yeah, it definitely depends on what you want to include.  You can have entries even beginning during the application process.  My first post was the day of staging, I think.  So I waited until I was leaving, really.  But it is totally up to you!
