The brief story how my blog started:
I always like to read and write. I write journals and notes here and there for years and years. I finally centralized all the pieces into one folder in my computer. I thought of using some of my writing on a blog. I started my blog in July, 2011. I only made twelve posts from 2011 to 2014. I had one follow. Then I took a long break because I couldn’t decide which direction I wanted to go. I came back blogging on July 29, 2016. I cleaned up the appearance of my blog and organized it to my liking. I started share my inspiration and insight from my life experience. My husband and I travel frequently. I shared my travel photos and excitements. After two months, my blog started getting very positive responses. I made many friends. I am retired, so I could interact with some bloggers in the morning and with others in the evening. I appreciate all the support I have received. All the follows and likes have encouraged me to keep my blog going.
My Advice to new bloggers:
- Visit, like, comment, and follow other blogs. That is the way they find you and hopefully will return their visit and follow you.
- Keep in touch with your followers through the Reader on your blog. It’s on the left top corner of your blog next to “My Site,” clig open and click blogs I follow.
Please feel free to accept or decline the nomination. No pressure! If you accept, have fun!
