Thank you so much to Amanda at My Lovely Crazy Life for nominating Life She Lives for the Blogger Recognition award! Such an honor to have others take notice of your passion!
How Life She Lives Started:
I have been blogging for as long as I can remember, having been a Journalism and Communication major in college. But I started Life She Lives in November 2016 with a bigger idea in mind. I like to say that this is a blanket statement lifestyle blog because I like a lot of things and tend to lean away from the “must follow a specific niche” frame of mind. I write about a variety of topics; food, travel, island life, relationships, career, and blogging… with plans to further expand to more topics to truly encompass the life that SHE lives. I love writing, I have a lot to say and I am thankful for the readers that I've got!
Advice to New Bloggers:
- Engage with your fellow bloggers to establish a dedicated community. Engagement truly goes a long way and you'll come to appreciate and love those who repeatedly come back to read your new posts and comment! These are the readers that will stick with you so long as you write, so make a point to respond and visit their blogs too!
- Post regularly, but remember that quality is more important than quantity. If you want your readers to trust that there will be something new to come back to, you need regular content – ideally 1-2 posts a week at minimum. But, if you don't have the time to make it good, save it as a draft until you do!
- Use social media to get your content noticed. My traffic as gone through the roof since I started regularly engaging with Facebook and Pinterest groups. These are people that want both their content and your content to get noticed, so you work together to promote, promote, promote!
