The Brief Story of How My Blog Started

I believe I answered this before and this is testing my consistency. 😉

I’ve actually started a blog on my author website, however, my website is hosted by webs and therefore is not linked to a blogging community. After a while, I researched a site that would be the best for blogging and started this blog that provides updates on my writing, shows my book reviews, provides writing tips, and more.


2 Pieces of Advice

Write from your heart. You don’t have to post everyday or force yourself to. You also don’t need to read everyday because let’s face it, life gets in the way so write from your heart. Read when you feel like it and write when you feel like it. Don’t push the muses because they will go somewhere else.

It’s not about the amount of followers.  Some people forget about that. They get so deep into their posts and wait for their blog to take flight. They imagine that a lot of new followers will suddenly show up. Be realistic. It’s not about numbers, but the followers themselves. You may have 5 followers and all of them comment on your work. Isn’t that nice? That should be enough. Don’t stress out that you have 5 or 50 and one of your followers has 600. All in due time. ^_^


Nominees

Will update this entry after each like. ^_^

  1. I have also found that WordPress is one of the best blogging platforms. Have tried Blogger many times but interactions are easier here.

    And a Luna story coming in December…? This was new to me 😀 Where have I mentioned that? (If I have promised a Luna story and forgotten about it I am deeply sorry!)

  2. Haha, the conversation above is pure gold. Made me laugh. XD
    *coughs then whispers* I believe the confusion is with my story, Luna Tide?… *disappears into the shadows*
    But honestly, your two pieces of advice are both really good. I write because I love it and if I ever did it for something else then I think I’d need to have a break because the best writing is done when you love your book and characters rather than thinking of views or stuff like that.
    Great post! ❤

  3. It’s definitely not about the number of followers. Better to have a handful who read and comment regularly (and have conversations amongst themselves in the comments) than to have hundreds or thousands of “followers” who never even read the posts.
