Why Did I Choose to Become a Blogger?
I became a blogger two years ago because, I wanted to share my writing with the world.
Yes. That’s right I wanted readers everywhere to read my work.
At the time the only way I knew how to make that work was to blog.
Blogging became my new hobby.
Of course, I had to juggle around my schedule as a full time student.
Did It Work?
Yes, it did. Not only did I have my friends reading my work but also people from around the world.
It was great!
I didn’t expect to have people read, view, like, or comment on my blog when I first started.
But guess what?
How did it work?
It all started when my local library held a blogging 101 session.
The presenter was a children’s author.
She taught, demonstrated, and asked us questions that would show us how to become a blogger and why.
I too was an author.
I wrote over 500 poems on my Facebook page. But only my friends could read it.
I also dabbled in fiction.
So, she inspired me.
She should me what it took to start blogging, how to blog, and which type of blogging would suit my particular needs.
I was impressed.
So impressed, I got home and started my blog.
Out of all the blogging sites she gave me during that session, I choose WordPress.
And I started my first post.
I used the appropriate taglines.
The words that would tell others what my posts were about.
I started to type and posted many post afterwards.
At first I was writing as many posts as possible everyday.
That’s how I got started.
And here I am.
Two years later, a full time blogger with many loyal followers who are artists, publishers, poets, and authors like myself.
I enjoy their blogs and so, I follow them, like comment and share their posts.
By doing that, I encouraged them to come check out my blog.
And soon, I didn’t have to blog every second of every day.
Some days I never blogged at all and my views were better than when I did post.
