I started my blog (Reflections Of Life’s Journey) after thinking about it for a couple of years. I have always enjoyed writing letters and decided one day to write a story. My first story was a long one and it took a while to complete it because of being involved in too many other things. I set it aside and continued to wait until I felt I could devote a reasonable amount of time on a blog. My first posting was on 01/05/2015 and I thoroughly enjoy writing. I try to join at least a couple of writing challenges each week. The challenges are fun and enlightening and I enjoy reading other bloggers posts.
Some recommendations to new or potential bloggers are:
Decide on a name for your blog and what type you are most interested in. You may like to write stories, poetry , or about whatever your passion is.
Get your blog site set up and join some of the challenges. This is a great way to learn from other bloggers. You will see how they write and communicate with other bloggers and the photo challenges are very helpful . Be consistent in your writing. Try to write at least one thing a week.
Learn about social media traffic and how to diversify it.
Build a community by making your readers feel a part of something and they will come back, and be sure to follow other bloggers.
