Some advice on your new blogging life.
It was down in Canterbury, sitting in my bedroom with Jake (around the time of my birthday,) that I decided to just go for it. Jake helped me create a name and soon I was underway with all the publishing and ideas for what my blog should be about. I chose a lifestyle blog. I just think its the easiest and most broadest (if that even is correct English) type of blog that is around. I can write about anything and everything that I feel like; an inside peek of what my diary would be like, tips on hair and makeup, and I can freely chat about anything that has hit me in my life. You'll all probably read a lot about my recovery and experience of having an operation. I know millions of people have had one but I never had so it'll be a new perspective on that for you.
Everyone has their own reasons for starting a blog or vlog, or public page. Mine was so that I had a new hobby which didn't involve physical movement of my legs as I knew I would be pretty much house bound for a few months. I think that is the nicest thing about blogging though, you have so much freedom to write anything and start doing it whenever you want to. I can talk about the news, my opinions on a topic and your readers can easily write their opinions in your comment boxes. No one can moan about you writing something you shouldn't of because it is your page. And because it is your page, you can make it your own.
I valued all the kind words and feedback that I got from all of my friends, including the favourites and retweets of my blog page on twitter. It has been nice knowing that I am being supported for something that I thought I would have the mick taken out of me for. Their support has made me feel more confident in posting new pages and topics. I've even attempted to video myself doing a hair tutorial!
So go for it. Don't question whether you can be bothered. You have the freedom to post as little or as often as you wish! My experience so far has been exciting to see how many viewers I get on posting day. And those viewers make you want to continue writing, not stop.
