WHY DID I START A BLOG?
I’ve always wanted to publish a blog because I hardly have anyone to talk to about books in real life. It’s difficult to hold all these bookdragon flames inside me okay?? I NEEDED AN OUTLET TO SHARE MY BOOKDRAGON THOUGHTS and that’s why this blog was born.
It just took me so long to do it because I didn’t have enough courage and ideas. Cait @ PaperFury really helped to spark the fire in me and gave me inspiration to start a blog of my own. I think almost everyone in the bookish community knows Cait and she truly deserves all the recognition because she’s such a PRECIOUS bean! I’m really thankful for all the support she has given me ever since I started.
My Twitter family also gave me the confidence to start this blog. Without my online friends, this smol blog won’t exist at all. I don’t tolerate that “online friends are not real friends” talk because my online friends ARE REAL FRIENDS, okay??? They have so much trust in me and up until now, they still support me and my content. I HAVE BEEN BLESSED BY LOTS OF AMAZING PEOPLE AHHH
ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS
I’m a new blogger myself but I actually have lots of tips for new bloggers based on my blogging experience. I will share just two today but I’ll write more tips for you soon 😉
1. Use other social media platforms to your advantage
Sharing blogposts on social media helps in increasing traffic and engagement. I had a considerable number of followers on Twitter before I started this blog and sharing my first blogpost there really helped! Don’t be shy to share your content everywhere. Even if you don’t have a huge number of followers, you’ll get there soon! The blogging community is spread throughout a lot of platforms and every single blogger I’ve met online is supportive.
Social media platforms can be the keys to a fulfilling blogging life. They just don’t help in increasing traffic but they can be ways to meet friends who will support you all the way.
Share your posts. Connect with others. Seek advice. Support other bloggers.
2. Post regularly.
This can be really difficult when you’re busy with work or school but if you have the free time, be sure to write and schedule blogposts! Even 15 minutes alloted to blogging can work wonders.
It’s important to make your presence known especially if you’re just starting. Posting regularly means you’re dedicated with what you do and more people will get to appreciate you and your content too.
It’s important to post regularly but you don’t have to pressure yourself if you’re too busy. Give yourself some breathing space too 😊
