Blogging is one of those rewarding activities that just keep on giving but there’s probably nothing better than the sense of community and belonging that it provides. That feeling is never more obvious to me than when another blogger tags or nominates you for a blogging ‘thing.’
The lovely Ms Mistry recently tagged me for the blogger interview, and simply melted my heart, the way being thought of by others always does. So without further ado, here’s my story…
How did you get into blogging?
What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
Create your blog, write what you love and don’t worry about the numbers until way later. Stressing about your stats and figures right from the off (or starting your blog for that very reason) will only demotivate you and destroy your blog before it has even been established.
Numbers matter. But they shouldn’t be the reason why you write. Take our word for it or learn it the hard way, it’s your choice.
What would be your dream campaign?
Honestly, I haven’t even worked out what my blog is all about yet. I’ve seen it being described as a “blogging tips” blog, which is quite a heart-warming label, but I’m not sure that’s all it will be. Guess that’s why I categorise it as a lifestyle blog – it just has a little of everything.
I guess right now my ideal campaign would be encouraging people to take up blogging. Blogging is an activity that so many people want to take up but simply don’t know how to, or do not have the encouragement to begin. I’d like to change that.
Do you have a plan for your blog?
I have a very long-term plan, yes, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’ve been slacking on achieving it lately. However, as my blog does not currently pay the bills, other things must take priority, and thus a lot of my usual blog time has been diverted towards job searches and acquiring a driver’s license (theory test passed just yesterday! Woop!)
What do you think about rankings?
I now nominate:
