Top 5 blogging tips that you would give to new bloggers?
Interact! Everyone is so lovely, drop a comment, share a post and say hello!
Be Yourself – if you are not a big wordy person, don’t try and use big words, just write however you want to write and let your personality shine through
Ask – if you don’t understand something, or want to know how something works, just asks, no one knew it all to start with – I’ve been doing this for 3 months and still have to ask questions all the time!
Refuse – don’t be tempted to over promise things, if you have’t got the time no one will mind and they certainly won’t miss you out in the future for being busy now
Trust – accept any help and advice as the blogging world is wonderful and everyone is so kind!
Top 5 book blogs you follow?
I am a married mum of 4 and a bearded dragon! I am training to become a proofreader and started my blog back in June, so I am still a newbie! I am a Yorkshire lass with a real taste for a decent pint and a good pudding who loves Liverpool Football Club.
Rarely seen without a book in hand, I simply adore reading, anything really but my favourites are crime and psychological thrillers.
