Blog Recognition Award: Roll of Honor
Two weeks ago I logged into my blog to read my comments and then bam! I came across a comment informing me about my first blogger Recognition award. It means so much to me because it’s a nomination by a seasoned travel blogger I admire a lot.
How did I get the award?
I was nominated by Abhijeet Deshpande a blogger and writer from India, he has a book coming out soon, check out his blog at Backpacking Series and his awesome Instagram where I learned that Vietnam is actually two words “Viet nam”.
How did I get into blogging?
I’ve wanted to be a blogger since my since 2011. I just didn’t know what to blog about or where to even begin. In October 2016 I learned that I would be moving to South Korea this year and this would afford me opportunities to travel to many other countries. I spent about three months researching about blogging. I started working on this blog late November 2016 and published my first post on February first this year.
Advice for New Bloggers?
I’m a new blogger too, so I can’t speak like I know it all because truth is, I know a lot and still don’t know enough but here are my few tips.
- Be passionate about it: Blogging takes a lot from you (emotionally, physically and financially). It’s a full time (often unpaid) job. Don’t do it because you see someone else doing it or some other odd reason. Do it because you love it and it won’t feel like a job or burden.
- Be consistent: Don’t post today and then in three months then two weeks. I started with posting once every two weeks and am now moving towards posting once a week because the long wait kills my traffic. If you’re not consistent, people will easily forget about you.
