I really want to thank Mike Senczyszak for nominating me for this great award, I haven’t been blogging for a long time so I feel very privileged to be nominated!
I’ve been following Mike’s blog, Solsbury Hill, for some time know and I’ve really enjoyed reading his posts because they genuinely touch on interesting and intriguing topics that can affect our everyday lives. Also, he writes about what it’s like to be a blogger, which we can relate to, for example in some of his posts he talks about how he finds it hard to feel motivated to write a post, which I can definitely relate with. I like how unique and honest his writing is. It’s funny because I’ve never really been the type of person to like long, thought proving articles but he is one of the few writers where I enjoy reading these types of posts.
So, how did I get started blogging?
I first started blogging in April because I wanted to write posts about one of my favourite TV shows, Charmed. I first created a website on Weebly however, I didn’t really like the platform because it wasn’t as flexible as I thought a blog would be. If you knew me personally, you might not instantly think of me being a music/personal blogger because I seem like more of a quite and conservative type of person which is one of the reason I didn’t want to start a personal blog. Till this day, I haven’t told most of my closest friends about this blog and trust me if you met the people that go to my school, you would too. I first only considered doing posts about Charmed but later decided to write posts on my personal life to meet more people and share my experiences and thoughts to the world. I am also quite passionate about music and I listen to music wayyy to much so later I decided to create ‘Music Monday’ to share my favourite tunes with you guys.
2 advice for new bloggers:
- Try not to put too much pressure on yourself to publish posts often. It’s OK to write 1 or 2 posts per week even though most of you have heard that the more posts you publish, the more views your blog will get. This is true, but its important not to burn yourself out by trying to create new material everyday/every other day.
- Be yourself and write posts about things that you genuinely find interesting. If you don’t find it interesting then you’re going to find it hard to have the motivation to write.
