  • Thank whoever nominated you and include a link to their blog
  • Nominate fifteen bloggers

How My Blog Began

My blog began after I was put on garden leave from my first job. I used to blog write for a digital marketing agency and I really loved it so once I was jobless, I decided to start up my own blog and this is where I am now! I love my blog and it keeps me sane; if I didn’t have it I don’t know where I’d be right now. I’ve made so many friends and found so many new authors.

My Advice

It’s about quality not quantity. Write your heart out, spill it all over the internet but don’t write posts for the sake of having something on your blog. I messed up and wrote posts that weren’t showcasing my skills; I now write quality content when I can about books, interviews and lifestyle. I don’t want to churn things out just to have a weekly post up. Make sure you’re writing from the heart. If you’re in it for the followers and likes, then blogging isn’t for you.
Share share share. Make sure you make friends in the blogging community and take part in following other people’s blogs and getting to know them. You’ll soon build up a network of authors/friends/contacts and they may even help you in the future. I was asked by Alex Owumi if I would participate in a blog tour for his book and I said yes. That post got me more views than any other and I frequently talk to Alex and even wrote a blog post for him. This year, I’m taking on another book tour with him. Contacts are important and not just for views but for friendships too.
