My Baby Blog’s Beginnings:
I was sitting in the same exact spot where I’m sitting now (on my couch), and I decided to start a blog. In my head I said it wasn’t going to last more than a week at most because of school. As I got going, though, I kept it up. Which brings us to today, I have writing posted on Fridays and reviews posted mainly on Sundays. I’m struggling a bit now with what content I put up, but those are my constants. This blog gives me some release of stress from my daily life.
Good ‘ol advice to newbie bloggers:
I feel like I’m still a newbie blogger, so my advice may not be that good, but here it goes. First of all, make sure the color scheme and theme of your blog is appealing and represents your content well. There are many themes available on WordPress, but not all of them I believe are good for when people visit my blog to look for reviews/writings. Second of all, be yourself. You don’t need any formal writing or even be good at writing to have a blog. I know so many people who get turned away or discouraged by that very thought. Just be yourself.
