Hi all 🙂
First let me apologize for the delay of my weekly bump and grind post. We are in the process of moving along with waiting on Harper so things have been hectic.
I was recently nominated for 2 blog awards with the first being the one that will be described in this post.
I was super excited to be nominated and would like to give a huge thank you to Tiffany Monique over at The Natural Hair Lounge for the nomination. Please be sure to check out her blog. She has tons of information for naturals and I just love her blog.
Here are the rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Write a post to show your award.
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.
My blog started because I just wanted a place to put all my thoughts. I did initially have some hesitation about sharing some of my most intimate moments with strangers but I quickly got over that.
My main focus was around natural hair and love because those were 2 big things in my life when I started my blog. Now I’m hoping to evolve my blog around mommy hood, fitness and natural hair of course. I’ve never had goals to become a huge blogger but more so connect with like minded individuals and discuss topics that were important to me.
If I were to give 2 pieces of advice to new bloggers it would be:
Don’t try to do everything at once.
I remember when I first started blogging I wanted to post daily and quickly became burned out. Not only did I run out of ideas but I was finding myself not wanting to blog at all.
Consistency is definitely key when it comes to blogging. When starting out plan to blog atleast 2x a week to keep your readers engaged. If you are able to keep up with that schedule then expand from there.
I’m not sure if I even follow 15 blogs closely but I will try my best.
I’m working on my Bump & Grind Post now so look out for that tomorrow.
P.S. STILL NO HARPER. SHE’S RUNNING LOW ON TIME.
Peace and Love ❤
