Recently, I’ve been tagged on Twitter to answer the following question: Why do you blog?
And while some might be able to answer this easily, I found it hard to answer. It got me to think: what has motivated me to start a blog? And, even better: what has motivated me to keep it? To be able to answer this correctly, I need to take you back to the beginning. This is why today, I’m getting a bit more personal and sharing with you why I blog and my blogging story.
I’ve been working harder and harder recently on creating a blogging routine that works for me. I had set it as one of my goals for the summer to not only find a blogging process that works for me but to also get on a regular posting schedule.
While I haven’t entirely been able to do the latter just yet (there are still weeks where I’m not posting according to my regular Tuesday-Friday schedule), I have definitely been able to find a blogging routine! So I thought I would share a little bit of what’s happening behind the scenes and share my blogging process! View Post
Blogging is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I mean, not only did it help me get more organized, but it also allows me to be more creative and improve my writing. But the most amazing part it is that I made friends with people from all over the world.
It’s no secret that I’m a very shy person. I don’t make friends easily and it’s hard for me to come out of my comfort zone.
Blogging could be a very lonely activity. I mean, you’re sitting behind your computer, writing posts. But it’s so much more than that. Despite what people might think, blogging is actually all about networking. You have to get yourself (and your blog) out there if you want to get your blog seen and read. It can be very hard at first, but for me, networking is one of the best parts of blogging! Not only because it increases my traffic, but also because I get to meet new people all the time and develop new friendships.
It took me a while to figure how crucial networking is. It can be a bit overwhelming sometimes, which is why today I’m giving you my advice on how to network with other bloggers! View Post
As I mentioned, my blogiversary was pretty recently. But, there’s something I have to admit: I’m not really sure when my blogiversary is. Sure, I know the date I created my blog (and WordPress likes to remind me), but I don’t know if I should count it from the moment I created my blog.
Let me explain.
My first post went live more than a month after I created my blog (June 2nd). Then, radio silence. I started taking blogging seriously only in August – three months after I created my blog!
So, where should I start counting? Back in April when I created my blog? In June when my first post was posted? Or in August when I finally took blogging seriously?
Anyways, as it happens, this blog post happens to celebrate not only one but two milestones! Not only is it posted a year after my first post went live, but it’s also my 50th blog post!
To celebrate, I decided to share my ten best blog posts. If you’re new here (hello!), it might direct you to some interesting resources; and if you’ve been here for a while, it might make you rediscover some old posts of mine!
I’ve come to realize that it’s been a year since I started this blog! When I first started blogging, I never knew I would like it as much as I do now. I never even thought it would get me as far as I am right now. To celebrate, I decided to share the love and present my 9 favorite bloggers! Most of them are college bloggers, but there are a few lifestyle ones too!
