The 5-minute version of the story of how my blog started…

I read a news article about an author who would pester everyone she met to start a blog which got me to thinking…what if I started one? I figured I love photography, writing, and my life is out of control enough that I can write about it and it won’t be boring. Then I e-mailed my role model blogger, Madison Sonnier, for some advice and to instill a little commitment in myself so I wouldn’t chicken out. You lovelies know the rest! 🙂

My nuggets of wisdom to new bloggers:

  1. Blogging isn’t just about writing blog posts. It’s about reading other people’s work and learning from them while making some new friends! (Also great for getting traffic.)
  2. Just do you. I know I said draw inspiration from other bloggers, but there’s a difference between learning from someone and modeling someone.

The 15 nominees I still stand strongly by today:

  1. Dreamer On a Cloud
    1. Amazing writing and heart

    1. 21st century Shakespeare
