The Blog Story
To be honest, I actually do not know how I started blogging. I have loved to read and write ever since I was young, but have never considered blogging up until this summer.
I have written before though, so I’m not completely new at this. My main focus for the last few years had actually be writing novels and to my pride and joy, I have actually written complete novels in the past few months. They might not be the best, but they are my accomplishments.
This summer, I had thought of wanting to expand my writing experience since I want writing to be a huge part of my future. And I wanted a platform where I could express myself, not just through novels, but through casual writing as well. I guess that was when I decided to blog. It has only been a few months since I started this blog, but I have been loving every single moment of it.
Now be warned, I’m probably not the best person to be giving out advice about blogging since I’ve only just started. But I’ll give out some advice that I’ve seen people give out and what I have learned from experience.
- INTERACT. I’ve seen this advice a lot and I will have to agree with this point. In order to get the most from blogging or writing in general, interacting with other bloggers and authors is key. They will be your main support and your main source for advice. Comment, like, or giving a read will make the day of any writer. And not to mention, you will make tons of amazing friends along the way!
- BE PATIENT. Blogging takes time– no, writing takes time. You can’t rush into it, nor can you expect it to spontaneously be amazing the first time around. It takes practice, failure, and a whole lot of patience. But, trust me, it’s worth it in the end.
