The other day, a blog post flashed up on my Twitter timeline. It was by Rebecca from Rebecca Reviews and it was titled: 1 Month Blog-versary (And My Tips For Other Newbies). It was a really useful post and whilst reading I thought, wasn’t Rebecca was one of the first people I followed when I started out on Twitter. Then I thought, yes hang on, it must be coming up to my one month blog-versary too! Sure enough, I checked and I had shared my very first post (Study Tips from an Open University Student) on 18th October 2017 which means I’ve also been doing this thing for a whole month too.
Feeling inspired by Rebecca’s thoughtful tips, I wanted to share my own ideas and suggestions for other newbie bloggers and recap on my first month of hellobexa.
The other day I looked in my Twitter Inbox to find that the lovely Kerry (from Mummy Thomas’ Blog) had nominated me for an award! It’s such an awesome feeling when other bloggers in the community spread the love. Thank you so much for the nomination Kerry, everyone should definitely go check out her blog . Mummy Thomas’ Blog is a place where Kerry shares her experiences to raise awareness for birth trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and mental well being. Her posts are so well-written, honest and helpful. I really love her open and authentic approach to blogging.
I haven’t been doing this all that long, but it hasn’t taken me much time to realise that running a blog is hard work. Don’t get me wrong, being a blogger is such a rewarding experience and the positives far outweigh the negatives. But it seems in order to keep up with the digital world you need a heck of a lot of motivation, patience, ideas and most importantly, time.
