Today, I’m going to introduce some interesting blogs to you. Take a look!
The blogging community consists of many great bloggers who work hard to produce good content and promote it, support fellow bloggers by following them, commenting on their blogs and liking their posts as often as possible. We network with each other and promote each other’s blogs.
I’m very happy to share with my followers that I’ve been nominated for the “Blogger Recognition Award” by Jenna and her blog named The Floridian Girl . I would like to thank Jenna for her kind words and recognizing my work. She is a sweet twenty-something newlywed who has taking a liking to my blog. She even looks forward to my posts!
Jenna’s blog is about fashion, food, traveling, family, marriage, and her fur baby so it is similar to mine except my babies aren’t furry. Take a look at her blog. She is a newbie like myself and has some interesting posts.
Why I started blogging:
I started blogging because I enjoy cooking, baking and sharing my pictures with friends. blogging has quickly become a passion of mine. I enjoy the writing and networking. I am also looking for a way to work from home so I can be with my toddler boys without being confined to a long corporate work schedule. I would miss them too much. I want to spend as much time with my boys as possible and can’t believe how fast they are growing.

My Advice to New Bloggers:
- Blogging takes a lot of time and hard work. If it is your passion, it won’t feel like work.
- Strive for excellence. Write the best content you can and use the best pictures possible. Your readers only know what you show them so, show them your best!
- It takes time and perseverance to build a following. Becoming a great blog does not happen overnight so, don’t set your expectations too high in the beginning. I wrongfully expected immediate results. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your blog. Learn from your mistakes and you’ll get better as time goes on.
- Don’t be afraid to become self-hosted. You’ll be glad you did when you see how many great plugins you can get, including the Jetpack and social sharing options.
