How My Blog Started
I actually wrote my first blog post about why I started Daring To Jess, but in a nutshell, I wanted to have somewhere where I could ‘flex my creative muscles’ and basically do a mind-dump.
As a result, Daring To Jess has turned into a sort of time capsule of my thoughts, and I’m so grateful to you guys for reading!
Advice To New Bloggers
1. Engage in the Blogging Community
When I first started Daring To Jess, I didn’t expect for the best thing about blogging to be the people that I got to know through the internet. Most of the people here share the same interests as you, have been through similar things and won’t judge. It’s great!
If you don’t want to share your blog with people in your immediate environment (e.g. family, friends, colleagues etc.) that’s absolutely fine. You will still get readers from the blogosphere!
2. Be Really Clear About What You Want Your Blog To Be For
If you want to start one to make money, there are plenty of posts out there to help you set it up, and I’d suggest you set it up properly with your own domain and everything.
If you are like me and just want a brain dump or a creative outlet, then don’t get drawn into what can turn into a dark hole of comparing yourself to other people and their successful, money-making blogs.
