How my blog started:
I had heard about this blogging thing two years back. Initially I couldn’t understand what it is,  until last year when I got a writer’s block.
For those who don’t know much about me, I am a short story writer. Last year while researching on a story I checked out one of my fellow author’s blogging site . I took it to be a website but later after enquiring her about it,  I got a clear check on this topic. Much later after that during new year I started blogging. 🙂

Advice to new bloggers

1.Write from your heart, write honestly, be true to yourself.

2.Follow every blog that “likes” your posts and visit their sites too, it will give you ideas for your own.

3.Visit many sites, leave comments and follow them, you will learn so much

4.Accept awards, be grateful and have fun!
5. If you want followers don’t stop writing. The day you stop writing,  they stop following you.

6. Write on topics which capture people’s attention otherwise write something which captures your attention.
