How I Started My Blog
With great fear, I started my blog because many professional writers, peers at school, and my professor highly encouraged the idea of blogging. I also did it to fight the fear of showing my work to others. On WordPress, well I have to expose my writing, which I’ll admit, it makes me feel naked in many ways. Writing exposes anyone to judgment and criticism. However, my experience, so far, has been positive. One fear I have managed to defeat, a bit.
Advice To New Bloggers
You have to understand that writing is a process. The tools of a writer are reading and writing. So I advise a lot of reading and writing. I’ll recommend a few books that help with either fiction or nonfiction writing on a different blog. Writing short stories, poetry, or writing details about the human face helps you become a detailed writer. So I would recommend taking advantage of all three. And remember, grammar is important but not as important as creativity. You can fix grammar by reading grammar books, but never hinder your creativity. Be curious like a child. And laugh at your mistakes. Don’t put yourself down. And as a blogger, I simply decided to be me. I can’t do anything else but to be me. I write about what inspires me and discourages me. Writing is a therapeutic process, so write about what you want. Be you.
