Thoughts of blogging

Hi folks,

I've been thinking of late that I'm wanting to do something with my writing skills and get back into the whole writing thing. I haven't had much time over the last 7 years to do much off my writing as I'd like,

So someone today had suggested trying blogging, but here's the thing I've never read anyone else's blogs never mind knowing what to write about or how they work, I am familiar with Antonella the uncensored reviewer on Facebook, she's the only thing close to blogging that I've been involved in.

I have often thought about doing one but not knowing anything about it has put me off the idea. I really would not know where to start or even what my subject(s) would be about.

Does anyone have any hints or tips to help me get started.

Thanks muchly

Just get started!
Sooner you start the better as your writing style and format of blogs will evolve
Try and use other social media platforms to plug and draw in readers to your work too

Hi Chantelle - seems that I don't get notifications on here even though I did tick the bit for notifications,

What do you recon is a good area to cover for blogs? Was thinking books that I'm reading as I'm reading them maybe? Or is that too mumsy? I don't know - I dont get out much due to health!!!

Pick something you're not going to get bored off. I chose perfume and I'm still going six years later. Books are fine- authors love book bloggers so you may get a few freebies to review. Just pick something you love, no matter what it is.

There are blogs out there about crafting, beauty, books, days out, storage (I love those!) how to be organised, life hacks for Mums etc

I use Wordpress and I started from scratch. It is very user friendly and is intended for anybody to use without prior tech knowledge.

If you want to blog for fun and expression, write about what you love. If you want lots of people to read it, find out what you can offer. What do you know about that others would like advice on? How can your feelings and opinions help others to either feel better or more informed? Try to decide on your purpose, i.e. to entertain, advise or persuade, then think about the audience you'd like to reach. Use social media and search engine optimization (SEO) if you'd like to spread the word...so to speak. Mostly, enjoy it!
