I get asked a lot about blogging once people find out about my website, so I thought I’d share my journey in 10 questions for my lovely readers. So, here we go.
Why did you start blogging?
My very first blog was to review my bookcase, as a reason to keep all my books. For this blog, I wanted to document my uni experience and it’s become so much more!
How has blogging changed for you?
My confidence, people read what I write. It’s made me realise I can write and it’s good enough for people to read.
What’s the BEST part of blogging?
Being able to connect with people, exchanging stories!
What’s the worst part of blogging?
Comparing yourself to others. It’s so easy to look and go why aren’t I at their level? It’s often a case of right place, right time added to hard work.
How do you schedule?
I used to be SO good at scheduling. Now if I can I try and schedule a week in advance but it doesn’t always go to plan…
Do you keep track of stats?
I have a spreadsheet (because I’m a total spreadsheet geek) to keep an eye on how I’m doing, what’s working and what’s not.
What makes you keep blogging?
Every now and again, I’ll get a message for a comment from someone about how my blog has been positive for them or helped in some way. It makes me feel good. That and I enjoy it!
What are your blogging goals?
- To raise awareness of Mental Health
- To work with some brands to promote something I love
- To reach 5K Twitter followers
- To use my blogging experience to write my own book
What do you want your blog to achieve if anything?
To raise awareness of Mental Health first and foremost.
What’s your top tip for new bloggers?
Keep going! Talk to other bloggers and push on through any writer’s block!
