Why did I start my blog?
Even since I was a young girl, I have always loved writing! It is one of the few things that I enjoy! I used to write poems, stories and when I was handed a writing homework, I always went over the top!
Then one day I found zoella on YouTube. And the first ever video I watched was her Anxiety and panic attacks video. As this was a thing that my best friend was struggling with I decided to watch it. It said in it that she had a blog. I decided to check it out! As soon as it loaded up I thought, this is what I want to do. I want to be like Zoe Sugg (AKA Zoella). I read every single blog post!
A year later, I decided to start up my blog! It was a big achievement for me and I was so thrilled at the response. At this point, I had a strong interest in photography, but unfortunately, my phone had a horrible camera and I wasn’t allowed to buy a real camera. So for Christmas, I bought myself a Samsung phone! It had such a good camera. I think I may have taken over 1000 photos in the first two weeks I had it! I started to post my photos on my blog and got such a good response. I knew this is what I wanted to do.
Two pieces of advice for new bloggers:
Content: Only write what you are enthusiastic about. If you aren’t interested in that subject then you won’t enjoy writing about it because blogging is for fun and isn’t a chore! You don’t need to write about something that everyone is forcing you too because after all, it’s your little corner of the internet!
Photographs: You don’t need to use your own photographs. You can use ones from Google! I would recommend this if you don’t like taking photos or if your camera is bad (I used to do that). But remember if the photo you are using isn’t yours, tell your readers where you found it (leave a link) underneath the photo.
