Give a summary of how your blog started
It wasn’t long ago that I answered this question in another post so I’ll keep it brief in case you read that one. So, in a nutshell, it took me years to find the confidence to give blogging a try, but once I got going there was no looking back. I experimented quite a lot in the early days with lifestyle content, and quite broad discussion topics, until I finally settled with what I do now which is book blogging. I love everything bookish so I really feel that I have found my niche now.
Two pieces of advice for any new bloggers
Write what you want to write. I think it is easy to look at what other (often more established) bloggers are writing and feel as though that is the key to success. But, in my opinion success comes with fulfilment from what you are creating. Readers will be able to feed off your enthusiasm, and that will keep them coming back.
Establish a schedule that suits you. I wish I had done this when I started blogging. The organisation makes it easier to stay on top of things, and that way everything is a little less stressful, and blogging stays fun.
Now for my nominees
I usually select bloggers that have recently come to my attention, but this time I think I’ll switch it up and pick a couple of blogs that I have been following (and really enjoying) for a while. My choices are:
There’s no obligation to take part of course, but I look forward to reading your answers if you do!
Thanks for reading, I hope that you enjoyed!
