I began this blog four years ago, on the 24th of December 2014
Can you believe it?
More accurately, I knew I wanted to be a successful blogger and maybe someday make a living from it. Honestly what pushed me into blogging was because I love to write. Four years ago, I’d write a poem or a short story or an article and send it to friends to read and most of them would be like “wow! Presh, I think you should own a blog”.
Well, At first I wasn’t sure about owning a blog, I was just used to the idea of writing for people on their pages but well, along the line I realised it’s actually better to own a blog and publish my articles.
As a young blogger in 2014, I really didn’t have much idea about blogging but having a large, engaged and loyal group of followers – that was my dream. And you know what? I’m getting there! Though I’ve been a little bit off and on here because of busy schedules but what matters is I keep going!
Today I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned from blogging this far.
1) Everyone’s got their own magic
You’ve got your own magic! Don’t compare and don’t copy. Just do you! just write it, do what you’re good at and aim for the top.
It’s so easy to get stucked into the competition surrounding blogging. Just be yourself
2) Be consistent
It can be really hard to maintain things sometimes but you’ve got to keep blogging and keep writing. It doesn’t matter how you do it, just create that time and do it. And never forget that people are watching. You’ve got your loyalty followers and readers. You can’t disappoint them.
3) Be Creative
Make your blog a place that shares useful information, meaningful content and unique posts. Don’t just do what everyone is doing. Do something outstanding. Besides, you also need to make it prestigious enough for others to want to contribute to it.
Over to you
