Blogging ~ Do you enjoy what you do




It's always been said that everyone has at least one book in them, but you could spend a lifetime thinking of what that book could be if the story doesn't just pop into your head.

I am in awe of every writer out there, just the magnitude of their imagination makes me wonder what goes on in their head on a daily basis.

I myself do not have enough imagination to create such a wonderful story that would be made into a book so I Blog .

Blogging for some people is a full time profession but I use it as a platform to get everything that's in my head out on to the page.

If you want to start blogging here is a handy guide on how to start up a blog.





I have only been writing my Blog for a few months now, but after looking back at my first blog and seeing how I have improved with the amount of content I write, I have realised how much I love it and how much I have learned from other bloggers.

Here are a few tips I have learned along the way so far ~

Find your Blogging platform


We all like different things and some sites suit some but not others, so this is a personal preference, there are loads of different blogging sites out there like Wordpress, blog.com, Wix.com which I have used before but my favourite at the moment is Blogger.com it has everything I like and it's so easy to get round and make personal.

Make great pictures


Yes you can make great pictures  instead of trying to take the perfect picture which could take days, literally trying to get the perfect setting then editing, I've found it so much easier to go through sites like Canva and PicMonkey, to make your own, this takes a bit of commitment at first until you get the hang of what you're doing, but you get exactly what you want in the end.


Read other Bloggers posts


This may sound strange but reading other bloggers posts that you like gives you an idea of what is easy to read, the best styles to go for and you find little tips you can use for your own blog, other bloggers also give you great advice and tips.


Choose your Niche


Choose your subject you want to write about, or choose a link to everything you write about, this is personal to you, but if you are already looking at writing a blog then you most probably have already decided what you want to write about and why.


Get yourself out there


If you want people to read your blog posts then you need to get yourself out there, having yourself on all your favourite platforms is a good start, especially Twitter where all the bloggers hang out. I found adding my blog to Bloglovin was a great way to get myself out there and also get tips and follow other like minded bloggers.

Enjoy


Most of all enjoy writing your blog, if you are finding it tedious then it's not for you, blogging should be about writing whatever you want about whatever you want and to have fun doing it, you won't know until you try so give it a go, see how you get on, you never know you might actually like it.
