Starting A Writing Blog #1

I know-what a cliché! But it’s the simple truth.

_____________________

I started classicallyivy.com in 2015, and at the time, I knew nothing about things like blog statistics or peak times for posting. I simply wanted to write and share my thoughts with others. This fact is what has helped me to sustain my blog for this long.

_____________________

Another dimension to being yourself is knowing where your writing passions lie. I am passionate about sharing stories and relatable poetry, and these are what my writing is almost always about. I am interested in music, makeup and movies, for instance, but not enough to write about these topics every single week. (When someone tells me that I should, for instance, write about politics, I want to ask them if they have ever actually read my blog).

_____________________

Know where your passions lie, and even as you learn about the technicalities of blogging, your writing blog, like mine, should ultimately be a representation of who you are.

_____________________

Before you actually start your blog, be confident in your writing abilities and in being yourself.
