HOW IT ALL HAPPENED?
My blog started on a whim nearly two years ago, at the time, I was thinking, “I should write a book,” realizing, maybe I should start smaller and see where this takes me. I can’t get through a day without thinking about something to write about. Hard to explain, words and thoughts coming from out of nowhere. My goal this year is to write a blog a week, I’m nearly there, who knew? There’s something satisfying about sharing my experiences, hoping that if anything, I’m relatable, interesting to read and make you giggle, if just a bit. I have so much to experience, whether it be big or small, please join me.
Advice for new bloggers? Well, be true to yourself, don’t try to be Martha Stewart if you know nothing about baking. AND whatever you do, don’t give up! It’s frustrating at times to see bloggers with thousands of followers, it just means they’ve been at it longer, our turn will come and if it doesn’t, it’s not really about that in the end. Just keep writing, a little each day, get into a routine and be consistent, it will pay off!
I’m thrilled by this acknowledgement, I gotta be honest, I don’t follow many blogs (definitely not 15) I’m still fresh to this world. With that, I’m sorry for not following the rules exactly per request, I would like to spend more time reading and exploring the many writers out there and appreciate, then nominate the efforts. Good luck to everyone out there!
