I love awards! I just received the Blogger Recognition Award from Michelle at Southern By Design. I love her blog, she is fearless in her writing and very engaging to her readers. Thank you Michelle for your nomination.
Well, I have always had a passion for writing. I have made prior attempts to start up a successful blog many many years ago, but I lacked the motivation at the time to really commit time to it. I was probably 22 at the time and like many other 22 year olds, I had far too many extracurricular activities, (AKA partying and doing stupid things HAHA). Back in June I think it was, geez feels like forever ago, I on a whim made a WordPress account and started pouring out my heart and soul, and everything in between. My blog is very special to me. And I will continue to keep this machine going, because blogging, for me, has become such a humbling and soul searching experience.
I guess what has helped me was always searching for new content to write about and making a folder on my computer of future post suggestions and topics. Also, to engage with your followers. When I first started blogging I realized very early on that its easy to just scroll and like like like, but to actually take the time and read their posts and interact and enage is the way to have a successful blog. Lastly, write about things that matter, and other things in between. I am eclectic in my thinking so I like to show that on my site. I write deep meaningful material, but I also like to be silly, or write about my favorite TV show. Really, anything you have to say matters, you just got to get it out there and let the world in.
