How my blog got started: I have never had any social media accounts before I started my blog. One of my close friends started a blog, and invited my sister and I to join her. My sister got her blog because she loves writing (go check out her blog!) And then a week later I joined the both of them not expecting that much to come out of it. But here I am, loving it!
Two pieces of advice for new bloggers: My number one piece of advice for new bloggers is to be yourself. It is so easy to just do what everyone else does, but that won’t make your blog special or stand out. I love music so I post about music. I love to encourage people, so I post encouraging post on my blog. I am not going to post a story, or certain other posts because that is not what I love. Do what you Love and Love what you Do.
My second piece of advice is pre-post, pre-post, pre-post! This has really been a lifesaver to me these past few months. When you have a lot time you can post something. But don’t stop there go ahead and write more posts (if you have ideas for the posts). I write posts ahead of time a lot, especially for smaller holidays like Valentine’s Day, Easter, and the 4th of July. Even right now I am typing this on January 14th! Another things to go with this one is to brainstorm ideas for posts. Whenever you have an idea write it down! You may never use it, but who knows maybe you will.
Bonus question from Etain: If you could blog about something completely different than what you blog about, what would it be? I would make it a writing blog, because I am not a good writer. And if I had a writing blog I would be good at writing, right?…
Thanks for nominating me for this award Etain! 🙂 And whoever wants to do this award can feel free to tackle this award. Love y’all!
