I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a long time now, and after talking to my friend Traver, a popular blogger, I’ve decided to take the leap.
我的开博计划已是由来已久了 。我的好友特拉弗是一个博客达人 。在与他谈论之后，我决心付诸行动 。
Traver got me started with a basic template, but I wanted to customize the blog to give it my own flavor before launching it. I already have my first few posts ready to go, and I plan to update it a few times a week.
特拉弗建议我从基本的模板入手，但我更倾向于在动手之前先进行专门设计以赋予我的博客独有的风格 。我的博客已初步成形，而且我计划每周再对它进行数次更新 。
Traver told me that it may take a little time for my blog to catch on and become known in the blogosphere. He suggested I do some basic self- promotion. He told me to register my website with the major search engines and to swap links with other bloggers writing on similar topics. He gave me some other advice to increase hits and I’m taking it all to heart.
特拉弗告诉我，若要在博客圈内流行开来并小有名气，还有一段路要走 。他建议我做些自我推广 。他告诉我，要在几个大型搜索引擎上注册博客网址并与其它类似主题的博客相链接 。他还教给我一些其它如何提高点击率的建议 。这些建议我会牢记于心 。
I can’t wait to get my first comments and to start talking to other people about our common interest: Our love of cats!
