This is a question I’ve gotten a number of times over the years via my contact form. It’s really pretty simple. I enjoy writing and riding roller coasters. It also helps that I work in the Internet field so I’ve been able to take what I’ve learned professionally and applied it to my hobby. Anyone can become a roller coaster critic or take their coaster enthusiasm to the Web.
I recommend Blogger or WordPress as free places to host your site while you’re getting started. If you’re interested, you might want to read these 5 Tips for New Bloggers that I wrote for my 5 year anniversary. Also, there’s a really good guide at eHow entitled: How to Be a Roller Coaster Critic. I have to think that I had something to do with that article.
