How did I start blogging?
I have always jotted down my thoughts in poem format. My feelings, be it happy ones or sad ones are always yearning to be expressed. Writing them into poems made them become solid and real. Even though I started my blog in 2008 it did not take root until mid-2013. I am too cautious an individual when it comes to changes. But since then I have enjoyed every aspect of blogging; from creating new posts, to reading postings by others who have the same interest as me.
What advice would I give a new blogger?
Be yourself. Be true to yourself. And when you write it will be your own style, your own creativity because it comes from deep within you. Follow other blogs. Spend time to read their postings. Everyone has a unique and beautiful way of presenting their posting. Enjoy their writings, they have a story to tell too. On days when you hit a blank wall, take a break from writing but continue to read the blogs you follow, inspiration will return. Just have fun.
