I am a big-time fan of true crime.  I listen to a lot of podcasts and watch shows like Dateline or the shows on ID, Oxygen, and Netflix.  When I hear about a new baffling case, I seek out blogs about the case.

Which brings me to true crime blogs.  Have you ever thought about starting a true crime blog?  I am sure you have a lot of thoughts about these cases you would love to write about.  Maybe you already are writing long posts on Reddit discussions.  Wouldn’t you like to have all these thoughts in one place?  It could do a lot of good to shed light on these cases.  Maybe it could even help lead to say an unsolved case being resolved.

You might think starting your own blog would be difficult if you have no experience doing this.  But the truth is, it is not as hard as you would think.  It’s not that hard, that is if you use WordPress.

People have been using WordPress for many years now to write their blogs.  Blogs on WordPress look incredibly professional.  And you don’t need to be a coder or computer science major to create your blog with WordPress.  In fact, we have a non-technical guide to starting a blog on WordPress here.  If you follow these steps, you can easily start your own blog.

This could also be a great addition to a true crime podcast if you already have a true crime podcast.  If you don’t, you can find out how to start your own true crime podcast here.
