How Scribbled to Paper Got Started:
Someone close to me told me they started writing books, and one was going to get published. Wait, rewind. This same person told me for years that they dreamed of writing books. One day, they actually did it, and eventually received an offer to have one published! That, by itself, was amazing. But it also made me stop and wonder, “Am I just sitting here, saying, ‘One day, I’m going to go do this or that?'” I used to write poetry from time to time, and just decided I was going to start a blog and put $100 down and signed up. Less that three months later, here I am!
2 Pieces of Advice for New Bloggers:
I am still new, so I’m not sure! But I would say (1) Make a blog you can take pride in. If you leave you page half finished, or don’t put true effort in your writing, people aren’t going to take you serious. Time is too precious of a commodity to be wasted on a blog like that. (2) Be sure to go around and read other blogs, like, comment, and follow. You have to get yourself out there to promote your page, get new ideas, and hey, just meet nice people out there.
Until next time…
