I’m so thrilled to let you all know that in the month of July I had received two awards from two amazing bloggers. Gemma from Gems Life nominated me for the Liebster Award and Juliette from Juliette’s Life nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Very grateful to both Gemma and Juliette. Do check their blogs out!
How my blog started
I have been journaling my life since I can remember. Seriously I don’t talk much but my mind bursts with words. I love documenting life events and when I stepped into college I really wanted to start a blog. Well, I was too intimidated by the idea of writing for a bunch of people to read it and so kept procrastinating. In the month of February, I set up my blog but kept it private so that I at least assemble a couple of posts to put up. I settled for the niches I wanted to experiment with and voila my blog was live!
My advice for new bloggers
Be confident with your words. Whether it is an experience or thought you are sharing or giving a piece of advice or tips etc, be confident. Maybe you want to check your facts to be confident about what you are putting up on your post. When you believe in your work others will too. Know that the efforts count and this should keep you going!
Become active in the community! For those who really wish to be an established blogger, it is important for you to let people know that you exist! Initially, even I struggled with getting readers, views, and likes.
Then I joined social media groups for exposure and more importantly started appreciating each blogger on WordPress. Shared my thoughts on their posts which invite them to my blog posts. However, keep it real and stick to people from your own niche or otherwise, it looks like you are only trying to get as many followers as possible.
