Becoming a Blogger | My Blogging Story Series
Outline and Schedule
Becoming a Blogger
First off, let me apologise to you. I was planning to release this series back in October and I started to have some technical issues, so I postponed it until I had everything resolved.
When the time came around to my new starting date, the issues still weren’t fixed. So I am pushing it back to January by then I’ll have everything sorted or I would’ve lost my mind completely.
Either way, you will have a post from me. I am so, so very sorry for the delay I hate having to do this to the people who support my blog. I’m very embarrassed for all the delays and I hope this doesn’t sour you away from my blog.
My Blogger Story Series
This series is outside of my usual niche of skincare, but I’ve been wanting to widen my blog topics by adding lifestyle type posts.
It’s been a year since I started blogging and I wanted to share what I’ve learned in the last 12+ months.
I am not a professional blogger of any sorts, I wouldn’t even consider myself an amateur blogger. I probably fall closer to the person who does the juice order runs for the cool amateur bloggers. With that said, I am totally fine with however I’m classified as because I am doing something I love and enjoy and that’s all I need in my life.
My Goal for this Series
My plan at the moment is to do a multi-part series releasing a new topic on Sundays. I’ll be sharing my experiences of those topics and some helpful resources that I’ve found throughout this adventure. My hopes in creating this series are that it may help someone who may be thinking of starting a blog or another type of platform to share your passion(s). Or perhaps an already established blogger may find a new resource. This one is a very very very least likely but you never know, a girl can only dream!
The internet is a big wide world, there are many passionate and professionals bloggers who know a lot more about different resources that others may not be aware of. Best of all so many bigger bloggers share tips and information for free! Most of them started small, learning from mistakes and feeling clueless. Some really experienced and knowledgeable bloggers sell programs or mini-courses with resource lists and some of the fees are at a reasonable price.
Throughout my research and at times where I’ve been stumped on a problem I have been lucky to find others who share their experience, knowledge and time to help other bloggers. Even if you are just thinking of creating a blog for yourself to keep a digital diary of your life so you have something to look back to in a year, five years or much more years.
Why I started
This is a small recap of my reasons. In case you don’t know, this all started for me having a car accident in March 2015. Results from that have led me to have health issues. I did a 2 part blog post sharing about my health situation ‘My Chronic Pain‘ and ‘My Mental Health‘. If you prefer not to read about health related issues I suggest to maybe skip those posts.
Topics and Dates of release
I hope this may be something that you will join me along the way and if you have any input, I’d LOVE to hear from you.
Please make sure to sign up for my newsletter to be notified as soon as the new topic is published.
Listed below are the topics and dates that each one will be released. As it stands, it’s a 10 part series but as time goes on and if I think of anything else I may extend the series.
Thank you so much for your time and I’d love to hear any feedback you may have. I’m hoping this is a way we can share and grow our knowledge with others.
