Happy Sunday, Folks! I am delighted to have been nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award by the gorgeous and talented Tabitha at BlondedLights. This is an award designed by bloggers to recognize others in the blogging community, and to share blogs they enjoy with their audience. It’s also encouraged to give a little background on the motivation behind your blog, and some advice for new bloggers.
How The Tully Tales Started
I started The Tully Tales while on maternity leave. I’ve always wanted to start a blog, and have been interested in writing. Becoming a mother opened me up to totally new life experiences, and I want to share those experiences with others. We’re all in this motherhood journey together, so I hope my stories, advice and random musings help other mamas.
Advice to New Bloggers
I’ve shared my blogging tips and tricks here, but my advice to new bloggers is;
Do Your Research Before You Start: Pinterest is full of posts on how to set up your blog correctly, create beautiful images, how to promote you blog and so on.
Dive In: Don’t worry about what people will think, or compare yourself to others. Just start writing, and give it your all.
Don’t Expect Immediate Results: Building your blog, and a following takes time. Be patient, and use this time as a learning experience on how to improve your blog and your content.
Network: There is a vast, supportive community of bloggers out there. Check out some groups on Facebook, follow other bloggers you enjoy on Instagram and Twitter, and engage! You’ll make friends, and build your blog by being friendly.
Have Fun: If you’re not having fun, you’ll never stick with it. Blog about what you enjoy, what you’re passionate about and enjoy the process.
