    Well, I’m new. I’m 16. AM I allowed to start a blog? and also, I’m a bit lost on how to get readers. I was just wondering how things work here. I’m sorry, I’ve never EVER blogged in my LIFE!

    The blog I need help with is tinaterina.wordpress.com.

    Gello there and welcome to wordpress.com.

    Yes you are of age to have a blog. Yes there are other bloggers your age here. However, disclosing and displaying ages can be problematic, given the number of perverted males, who are seeking to groom young people, and who pretend to be your age when they are in fact sick old creeps. Please be extremely self protective online and do not share personal information freely.

    Here are some good places to start:

    LOL :D “Gello” was of course meant to be “hello” I forgot to proofread before clicking submit.

    The most effective way of promoting a blog within the WordPress.COM community is to seek out other blogs in the same niche as our own blog and post meaningful comments to posts in them. You will find lots of threads in the forum searchbox filled with advice on a subject and you will find I have posted into many of them because it’s a subject I blog about.

    Social networking tremendously expands the audience you can connect with. At the end of the day, if you do not use social media and social networks to promote your blog posts and blog, then you will find building a growing readership is more difficult as the audience you reach will be limited.
