Yesterday I came across this video by Zoella and Sprinkle Of Glitter. I'm sure you all know them but if you don't you're a fool to miss out on their videos! Anyway they made this video many moons ago to give advice to any one starting a blog because they frequently get asked for help. It was the most useful video I have watched so I thought I would share it with you.
Its worth watching all the way through but if you don't want to I'll do a little summary for you. Basically they say that a blog should be started for the enjoyment of it not to become popular and get sent free samples. If you do that it just won't work. The following number really doesn't matter because if you enjoy writing your blog and feel passionately followers will come over time. Louise only had 69 followers on her blog's 6 month anniversary! Never compare yourself to another blog because every blog is unique and you'll end up feeling a bit bad about it all. There is a lot more advice about little thing like the appearance of your blog, photos etc. but I'll let you watch it to find that out otherwise I'll be rambling on forever.
Blogging is a fun way to share your interests, meet new people and become part of a community. I have to say I'm chuffed with my 28 followers so far so thank you all very much. I hope you found this useful!
