How my blog started:
My first post was July 21st 2017 (I had to look it up!) and it was just a spur of the moment random decision. I had stumbled upon a blog while looking on Goodreads and decided I wanted to give it a try!
Advice #1 – Break the Rules
You don’t have to follow the rules of the tags. When tagging people, bloggers will often include a disclaimer of sorts, stating that you don’t have to participate if you don’t want to. That one is pretty obvious. But if you want to participate you can also tweak the rules a bit. Take this post for example. There is no way I am tagging 15 bloggers. I will tag three!
Advice #2 – Be Yourself
Be yourself. There is a lot to be said about internet safety and not revealing too much, but you can still keep your identity a secret and be yourself. Write what you enjoy and let your inner self shine through. Posts would be super boring if everyone wrote the same way! My favorite blogs are the ones that I feel like I am actually getting to know the person and not just reading book reports! An example is that I use waaaaaay to many exclamation points and it would probably drive my old English teachers nuts. But I don’t care! I like them!!!!
As always, don’t feel obligated to participate! But if you do let me know so I can check out your answers!!!
