First of all I just want to say a MAHOOSIVE thank you to the fabulous blogger/writer RAIN at The Withering blog.
I am really made up you thought to nominate me for this award and I love the thoughtful comments you leave on my posts, they show your vibrant personality and love for similar interests to myself.
Give a brief summary of how your blog started:
I always used to fancy the idea of blogging from about 15 as I’ve always enjoyed reading and writing since I was young but never really looked into the format and style of it til a year or so ago. So one day last year I just thought hey ho why not? What’s the worst that could happen?
I see blogging as a space to write some thoughts, poems (keep most of those in my notebook) , connect with others, learn new things and share other bits and bobs I enjoy to bring up throughout life. Although I used to quite enjoy writing mini children’s books for my own enjoyment, obviously it’s not easy to get your voice out there so I thought a better option might be to just write in post format about day to day things to better become some part of an online writing community.
Another reason is so that some of our further distance relatives can have a look at some of what is going on in my and my family’s life during the times we can’t see them. Although I do not feel completely comfortable doing so yet, in the future I do hope to share some life experiences with readers that could help them in their own lives.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers:
PSSST I don’t really feel ‘qualified’ to do this bit, as I do class myself as a beginner blogger but here goes 🙂
- Be true to yourself, don’t try to copy anyone’s style to make yourself like a big time pro you see all the time. It’s okay to get some inspiration from others, but remember your posts are more than enough to intrigue others in your own right!
- Not all your posts will receive the views you would have hoped for, but that’s good because then you can see where your audience’s interests lie and how you can tailor some of the posts to be better suited to them for future reference 🙂 And as for the posts that do go well, that’s fab you’re creating content people are taking time to read out of their busy day!!
