My Blog Beginnings
I started blogging less than a month ago. I struggle with anxiety on a daily basis and I wanted to find a way to keep myself busy and distract me from being anxious. My first hobby I picked up was photography, but that hobby can be expensive and it is hard to find time for it. My second hobby was scrap booking. That hobby is a lot of fun and I still do it, but it is also hard to find time for it. Finally I decided to blog and I couldn’t be happier with my decision! It is so easy to do and fun too! I love writing about my life stories and I never imagined they would become something people actually enjoy reading! So far, everyone I have talked to in the blogging community are so sweet and kind to me. I love that I can just be myself here. 🙂
Advice for New Bloggers
This part is kind of funny for me because I am also a new blogger and I don’t have a lot of advice to give. I still have a lot of room to learn and grow!
My first piece of advice is to just write. Don’t care too much about being “grammatically correct” or “perfect”. Writing from your heart is the best form of writing. The more you edit it and adjust it, the less it sounds like YOU. Just be yourself. 🙂
My second piece of advice is to find a theme. Just get a general theme for your blog. I admit, mine can seem random, but that is why I have different categories. Each category has it’s own theme. That way, if people want to follow me for only my “anxiety” posts, they can just check that category every so often and ignore the others. Basically, just find whatever type of organization and theme(s) work best for you. 🙂 🙂
Who I nominate:
I am just so surprised and thankful for being nominated for this award. I hope I followed the rules correctly and all of the links work!! <3
