How Forever the Wanderer was created.As the graduation of my final year in school was fast approaching I was worried. Once I graduated I had two weeks before my exams would start. For months I had been refusing to go to school much to my mums dismay due to my mental health. School had become a HUGE trigger for my anxiety. To this day I still have no idea why. I get anxious even when I’m picking up my siblings from primary school.
I knew I was not ready for my exams.But sadly I had to do them so I could say I had completed my Leaving Certificate when I started looking for jobs, etc. If I wasn’t ready for my exams how the hell would I be ready to start university? The answer was I wasn’t and I’m still not ready.
Stressed was not the word for it.I thought if I didn’t get a college degree it would mean I was a failure. So I began looking at online courses. This is when I came along a course for how to start a successful blog. I bought the course impulsively and began watching.Before I found this course I had no idea that blogging could be a form of income. I started doing a ton of research and fell in love with the idea of creating my own blog and sharing my writing with the world.
It was a euphoric moment.I had found my passion and I began working on it right away. The excitement was unreal. I never thought I would be so excited to start something so new, different and completely out of my comfort zone. On the 1st of May I officially launched my blog! I have now been blogging for five months and I absolutely love it. Last month I received my first payment for a sponsored post. This was a huge step!
My advice for new bloggers.
Tip number one:Don’t stress. Write because you love to write not because you feel like you have to. You should enjoy blogging. You started a blog for a reason, remember that reason and you will always love blogging. Tip number two: Don’t focus on the numbers. Overtime your blog will grow. It does take time but you will get there with consistency. If you keep your audience up to date they will continue to come back to your blog. You started a blog to share your writing and passions with the world not to get rich fast or receive free products.
