Wednesday Words - Do Not Give Up

This week I thought I'd talk about blogging. When I first started blogging last April, I assumed I would be rubbish, get nowhere and no one would actually read it. I didn't care though. Blogging is about writing about yourself, writing from the heart and not doing it for anyone else. Getting readers and comments is just a plus at the end of the day. 

Yorkshire Blog, Parent Blog, Mummy Blogging,
Our header which was made by myself, not very professional looking

Make your blog how you want it. I'm not entirely happy about mine at the minute. I want a new header and button but unfortunately for me, they cost a lot of money to have made which I cannot afford. This means having to do them myself and I'm no Picasso. 

So my quote for today is:

                             Do not give up,
                                      the beginning is always the hardest...

It is so true. If you are thinking of starting a blog then just jump straight in there and get it done. It is hard at the beginning. Choosing which platform to use, I recommend Blogspot as that is who we are with and it's so simple, designing your blog, personalising it, finding your own style and finally getting it out there and keeping up with it. 

Yorkshire Blog, Parent Blog, Mummy Blogging, But don't fret, take it in your stride and if you need help then ask. There are loads of lovely bloggers out there who are more than willing to help new bloggers in getting off the ground. Search Tots100 for all their tutorials, they have loads and they talk you through everything you need to know about blogging. If you cant find what you're looking for then just tweet them @Tots100 and they will usually point you in the right direction.

Most of all, have fun. Don't worry about scores, ranks, awards or whatever. Write how you want to and don't be influenced by others.

  2. Great words, very true. I often have to remind myself when I'm struggling to start something new, be it exercise or work related, that its worth getting through the pain barrier as once you're familiar with what you're doing it gets so much easy! The hardest step is the first one.

  3. So true! I procrastinate about everything - when really I need to just bite the bullet and get started. Once you've got going, it's so much easier to keep going. Popping over from Wednesday Words x

  9. I wholeheartedly agree with you. I'd been wanting to do one for years, ever since my eldest son was born, but never found the time. So a few months back I just started, and I love it now. Just wish there were a few more hours in the day to get everything on there that I wanted to!
