-The I-Ching or Book of Changes
Welcome to Part II of III in my bloggiversary extravaganza! Okay, so I didn’t have fireworks to accompany this post but I am stretching this out to a week long celebration.
In my previous post, I touched upon how I procrastinated to start this blog, how I struggled to develop blog posts and how I eventually overcame my frustration with blogging and came back to it after a lenghty hiatus.
In other words, I persevered in keeping this blog going which helped me progress as a blogger.
Before I get to the last part of this anniversary series of posts in which I’ll share some words of wisdom from other bloggers, I wanted to quickly share some of my lessons learned as a blogger. And so, I present to you…
Things Nicole Learned in the Past Year as a Blogger Which Will Help Her Progress in Year 2
- The anniversary of a blog is referred to as a bloggiversary. Of course, I learned about this AFTER I posted Part I of my anniversary posts. I had to use it here to make sure I sound like a proper blogger.
- This blog is a personal blog. As long as my authentic voice shines thorugh, my posts will fit together side by side.
- No matter how much I progress as a blogger, there will always be another blog out there that I feel is better than my blog. But as long as I’m happy with my blog, I shouldn’t compare my blog to other blogs. This isn’t a competition.
- But- there are some pretty awesome bloggers out there. Keep interacting with the blogging community and develop a rapport with other awesome bloggers. Amidst the glut of social media choices out there, blogging seems to be a genuine way to connect to others across the world by sharing your voice with that community.
Stay tuned for Part III to be posted either Sunday or Monday.
