One of my IG followers recently sent me message saying how she’s been following me for while, & she’s super interested in starting her own blog…. & she wanted to know if there was any advice I could give her? The first thing I told her is that the most important factor is to make sure blogging is something that she’s truly passionate about.
When it comes to blogging for me, it’s something very deep. The feeling that I feel when I’m writing a new post, or how I feel when I’m telling the world that I just created something new & I want everyone to go check it or go read it….. or even the excitement I feel when I receive feedback from someone who actually took the time to read my thoughts and experiences…… it’s a feeling that I can’t describe. Only someone who understands that when you do something you love you feel like you’re on top of the world.
If blogging is something that you’ve been constantly thinking about starting or doing, let me be the one to tell you….. DO IT! Start where you are & Start Now!!
I’m almost 100% sure that you guys had no idea that I blog on my phone. Yup you read that right….. I blog on my phone. I have the WordPress app downloaded on my iPhone 8+ and every single time a new blog post goes live from SkinnyGirlWithStyle.blog, it’s been uploaded from my phone. I’ve been blogging for a little over 4 years now & it’s all been done from my phone…. & I know I keep saying that over & over but that’s because I want you guys to understand “Use what you have.” Although purchasing a laptop is probably no. 1 on my list of wants…. there’s so many other things that I have to focus on right now….. mainly my wedding lol. But in all seriousness, I’m saying that you don’t need the latest MacBook, HP, or whatever other popular laptops there are out there……. in the beginning at least. There’s so many social media platforms, apps, and of course pen & paper! Write down your thoughts & just create with what you have!
And last thing….. to be honest, just do what you can. Don’t try to be the no. 1 blogger in the world…. and don’t try to compete with other bloggers. Do you, Be you, & do what you can with what you have. In the long run, your audience & your supporters will love you more because they can see that you’re not trying to be anything else but yourself. 💞
