I started blogging because I love to write and share my thoughts, joys, loves, experiences and challenges
whether or not someone wants to hear it :). What I wasn’t so aware of at first was blog etiquette. If someone comments on one of your posts, you should be courteous and check out there blog and comment or like anything they’ve posted that appeals to you. In doing this, you are able to see other blogs that you’d love to follow, build friendships, get amazing ideas and assist them in knowing what really appeals to their readers.
I have to say I’m getting better at all of the above considering I wasn’t so aware of it before. I realized I gravitated more towards beauty, fashion and crafts and maybe a few “life” blogs. What I appreciate more than anything is the spark I get within when I read/see something that really want to try. For example when I read this post from injenslife, I thought that looks simple and easy and I have loads of material but no sewing machine. I happened to be on Skype the next day with my mum and grandmother (who is a seamstress) and I told her I wanted to make a skirt but I have no sewing machine. She said, “that is very easy! Use the outline of a skirt you like and you don’t need a sewing machine just make sure you have the right thread and stitch it properly”. Half of what Jen said in the video but also a little encouragement and I know she’ll be there if I have any other questions.
Even though it seems every Tom, Dick and Harry has a blog out there now, the good thing is that you can almost always find what you are looking for in layman terms and with basic tools. Luckily, Pinterest has brought it all together. So whenever you read a blog and it has sparked something within you, like, comment or share it. It goes a long way for the writer (and it’s free advertising for you if you write as well ;)).
We’re supposed to hit 80 this weekend so I doubt I’ll be home behind this screen to wish you Happy Mother’s day. So…
Happy Mother’s Day <3
Have a wonderful weekend!
