How my blog started:
I’ve already sort of mentioned how I started my blog in this post here. Basically, I’ve always kind of been blogging, whether it was Tumblr, Bloglovin’ or WordPress; blogging has always been in me. Throughout the years, I lost sight of why I loved blogging so much, basically, I got so caught up in work and school and tons and tons of assignments that blogging became the last thing I had time for. I put blogging aside, even terminated my Bloglovin’ account. Last year, I felt like I needed a hobby and therefore I remembered blogging. I started to blog and this time, it was unlike any other time, I was really into it, I was determined to share my life, my experiences and my thoughts and so here I am today.
Two pieces of advice:
In this post here I also mentioned two pieces of advice however I surely can add two more. For all the new bloggers out there, my one note of advice is make sure you have some sort of schedule. When planning a blog, it’s important to have a schedule so that people that follow you, know that you will be posting. Nothing is worse than finding a new blog you truly love and then that person decided to post 3 times a week one week and then doesn’t post at all for another 3 months and then bam they post again! Consistency is key, schedules are important. My other piece of advice is that once you become so into this whole blogging world you’ll randomly get ideas for blog posts through the day, WRITE THEM DOWN! When you get a thought of a blog post, write it down immediately. In fact, write down all the blog posts you wish to write about and then type them up and schedule them.
