Today to my surprise I was nominated for the Bloggers Recognition Award by Meghna Dixit from Love, Life & The Little One. It warms by heart to know that bloggers are supporting one another.
I started blogging after I became a stay at home mother. Sitting in the house all day, only talking to your kids can put a damper on your social interaction. I started Taylor411 to offer advice to parents and connect with others through my blog and social media.
Blogging has been an amazing adventure. I’ve met so many inspiring and interesting people. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with some really great companies. Blogging is very time consuming and there is a lot of work that’s involved. Writing content is just the beginning. Advertising your blog and keeping up with your social media platforms seems to take up the most time. However, my followers make it all worth while. You all are truly amazing. I’ve learned from you just as much as you learn from me.
Blogging has become a big part of my life. It is my job! I don’t get paid as much as a regularly 40- hour work week but I enjoy it. I hope to continue this journey for a long time and continue meeting awesome people like you!
My advice to new bloggers:
Always remember why you started blogging in the first place. Blogging can easily get overwhelming at times. Its very time consuming and takes a lot of hard work. At times, I’ve wanted to give up, but then I remember why I started blogging in the first place. Don’t let the work take the fun out of your blog. Enjoy it and work at your own pace.
Don’t be easily influenced. There’s many times that I’ve wanted to change my niche just from reading other post. I want to post about a popular topic at the time. However, I always remember, that’s not me. I want to post about what I believe in and enjoy! Stick to what suits you, not others.
Thank you Meghna Dixit for nominating me for this wonderful award. I now nominate:
Many of these blogs were around, way before I started blogging. They’ve been an inspiration to me and Taylor411. These ladies have always offered advice and help. Not to mention they always have amazing content and the best articles. You all truly deserve the Mom Blogger Recognition Award. Always remember that all your work is appreciated! Thanks for all you continue to do!
