How This Blog Got Started:
First, thanks again to Sumaya from Sue’s Reading Corner for the nomination! I started blogging in March of this year when I decided that my author website needed a revamp. I thought blogging would be a cool way to meet other writers and readers who enjoy the genres that I write. Blogging has been much more enjoyable than I had ever expected. I’ve learned so much and had the opportunity to (virtually) meet some awesome people. I’m excited to keep blogging and connecting!
My Advice on Blogging:
1. Patience: You’re not going to magically get a ton of followers overnight. Building an audience takes time, so don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t seem like you have a large readership at first. Just keep at it!
2. Be Social: You know how excited you get when someone comments on your blog? Other bloggers feel the same way when you comment on their posts!
3. Interactivity: Make it easy for your readers to share your posts on social media, and try ending posts with a question for the audience to answer.
My Nominations for this Award (in no particular order):
13. Crushing Cinders
14. Books of Blood
15. Always Me
Have Fun Blogging!
