How My Blog Began….
I had been wanting to start a blog for over a year but I was so overwhelmed by the idea and decided I didn’t have anything more important to say than was already being said by other, more established bloggers. But at some point I knew that my voice was unique enough and relatable enough, that at the very least, a few friends and family would enjoy. So I lightened up my expectations and just jumped right in. Coming up with a name and designing a feel to my blog was the catalyst, once that was done, I couldn’t wait to write my first post.
Advice To New Bloggers
I am still very new to blogging, less than five months, but I think being yourself is key to finding readers. Not everyone is going to relate to you, but if you are authentic, the right people will and then your blog becomes this beautiful place of interaction and support.
Also, don’t stress over perfection. My first few posts were reviewed and edited about 20 times before they were published. It was stressful. Now, I tend to find typo’s and grammar issues within a few days of posting, as I reread my post in response to a comment. Its not the end of the world, the grammar and typo police will recover. The more you write, the better you will get.
