How my blog started:
Pretty simple story: All I have ever wanted to do in my life was travel, and when I finally saved enough money to start taking a few trips, friends and family would always ask me how I enjoyed it, or for suggestions on the places I traveled to. So, I just decided to share all of that here. I’ve also always loved writing and have kept a personal journal since I was 10. Sometimes, I include some of my personal journal notes in this blog.
My Advice to new bloggers:
- If you want to start a blog just go for it. Don’t let yourself get discouraged by numbers and stats. If you really believe in what you’re writing about I guarantee you there is some one else out there that does too and they will be inspired by you.
- Engage with your readers, and other bloggers! It is so important to build up your community in the blogging world.
If ya’ll decide to partake, have fun! I’ll enjoy reading your posts 🙂 .
