How my blog got started: My oldest daughter (AKA DollFace) started her blog in high school and she could make up stories out of thin air. She was amazing. I do not have that kind of talent. I was always telling her my real life stories that were almost as crazy as the ones she made up and I was continually giving her life advice. She is studying psychology and she thought that writing about my life/expressing my thoughts would be therapeutic for me in some way. She kept telling me that I should start a blog. I was very hesitant at first, but then I met brother Stuart on Twitter and he was always sharing his blog post. As I began reading them, the things he wrote about resonated so deeply and his words spoke to my soul. Seeing what he and DollFace could do with words inspired me. I listened to DollFace’s advice and went for it. She was absolutely right, writing has been very therapeutic for me.
2 advice comments to new bloggers: Do not be afraid to speak your mind and bare your soul. Use plenty of pictures in your post to give your readers a visual of what you are talking about. I like to use collages in my weekly post so I don’t fill up my free WordPress photo storage. 😉
I would like to nominate:
