Hi Dan - I'm in Belize for six months and a few of my friends suggested that I blog about my experience living as an ex-pat. I have been a writer professional and personally all my life and think the writing part should be relatively manageable (I keep a very detailed daily journal so can extract from that) but what I don't quite understand is how I actually launch the blog. I'm not a huge Facebook or social media person so not sure if I blog via that means or exactly how to distinguish and promote the blog. Thanks for your advice.
