I started my blog during the summer of last year, toward the end of August. Starting and running a blog had been something that was on my mind around the time, and finally I mustered up the courage to take the plunge and follow a dream. One of my biggest passions in life is the written word. It is art to me. I love to write. I love the effect I can have on people through the nature of my words and how they are arranged. And I have things to say. Running an online blog was a way to say them and a project to call my own. Flash forward a few months, this blog is still going strong and getting more and more successful each day, slowly but surely. And it has allowed me to discover people who I relate to, who share similar dreams, and a positive community.
The best advice I could give to new bloggers is to just write. Write about the things you love. Don’t worry about attracting an audience or what people will think is interesting. The right audience will come along, and you’ll be much happier writing about topics that fuel you, that you care about. I would also advise you to set small, but attainable goals for yourself. For example, tell yourself, “Okay, for the month of January, I aim to get five posts up on my blog.” I also find keeping a list of potential post topics as inspiration hits helps. When you get an idea, write it down. It could come in handy in the future.
Now, I’m still discovering new blogs, and some of these blogs have already been nominated… Let’s just see if I can hit fifteen haha.
Check out these lovely bloggers down below!
Wow, somehow I managed to pull it off.
Thanks again to the two lovely people who nominated me. It was a pleasant surprise, and my blog has been getting a bit of attention since then. So grateful. Looking forward to seeing more of these posts.
