I am beyond thrilled to have been nominated for the Bloggers Recognition Award by the lovely Tania from Thoughts in Mind. I am so grateful to be accepting this award. It’s amazing to know that there are people who actually read what I am writing!
Check out Tania’s blog, if you have not already: she writes about her life, travel, beauty and school.
I began blogging last year, as a way to have some creative outlet in my very routine life most of which was dictated by the needs of two young kids under 3 then. I wanted to share what I have learned (still learning by the way) about life with kids, travelling with them, cooking for the family, DIY-ing on a budget, arts and crafts, beauty and last but not least my love of photography!
I am not a pro in blogging by any measure, but I am sharing two pieces of advice for my fellow bloggers, who are starting new.
♥ Don’t get disappointed with the numbers initially – it will get better.
The key is to be persistent and be consistent. I have been there: disappointed and feeling like stopping, but trust me, it gets better over time. All you need to do is keep the focus on, and deliver – not for others, but for yourself. Getting caught up in the number game is frustrating, true, but nothing comes fast and easy. Blogging takes a lot of time and hard work. If it is something you like doing, it won’t feel like work.
♥ Blog about whatever you want to blog about.
Sometimes I run out of ideas. Other times I used to discard some ideas thinking they may not appeal to people. Don’t think about what other people will think – after all its your blog and nobody else’s.
♥ Bonus Advice (lol!)
When blogging, try to post with more photos which are consistent, appropriate and pleasing to look at. Nowadays it’s photos and videos that catch attention! If the wonderful content is coupled with some nice photos, it will surely be a crowd-pleaser! Just google to find out how to take good photos and there will be lots of good resources to get started with.
