Why I Started Blogging…
When I started my blog I wanted to find a creative space where I could express myself and get my crazy thoughts out there. I had always been very shy and really unconfident. I really believe that by starting my blog I have really grown in myself. I’ve made so many friends and learnt so many new things. I have a place I can really show who I am. This is all because I started my blog.
Advice For New Bloggers
My first bit of advice to anyone who is starting out as a blogger, be your self. It can be a pretty intimidating world out there on the internet and sometimes it is so hard not to compare yourself to other bloggers and influencers out there. If your looking for your blog to be successful, don’t for one minute think that it is going to happen overnight. It really doesn’t work like that. The more hard work you put in the more you will strive as a blogger.
Secondly, be creative with your posts, make sure all your content is as original as it can be. To be able to stand out from the crowd, you need to show your unique style. However, It can be pretty tough, especially when it comes to thinking of constant and consistent ideas. It is very worth the efforts. I would suggest keeping a notebook. That notebook will be a lifesaver. I literally can be in bed and scribble a few lines in at 3 am with an idea for something.
