I love my blog. It’s my little corner of the internet where I can record the things I’m passionate about. It has grown from a creative outlet that I dabbled with in between nappy changes and feeds to somewhere I can share experience and advice. More than anything I have fun with it.
Stephen Waddington, the President of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, has been helping new blogger Caroline O’Doherty find her feet and shared the process on his own blog.
I followed the posts, from setting out the reasons why you want to create your blog to making time to write and finding inspiration for content. At the end of the series I contacted Stephen to say how useful I had found it. That’s when he invited me to submit my blogging journey for an ebook he was writing with Caroline.
Until now, I haven’t had much time to reflect on how my blog has developed during the past two years, so I really enjoyed looking back and acknowledging the milestones.
I know there’s a lot more I could be doing, but that can all happen in good time. As Caroline says ‘…when your offline world gets a bit demanding, don’t worry, the online world can pause. Soak everything up and remember that as long as you ‘re moving forward, you’re heading in the right direction.’ Caroline’s blog is called Northern Ideas.
If you are new to blogging or even if you are not, I’d recommend checking out Stephen and Caroline’s ebook, Blogging for beginners. It’s free and you can get a copy here. If you find the ebook useful please make a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support – a charity close to Stephen’s heart.
