My Story

I launched this blog two years ago mainly due to my urge to write. Twenty five years earlier I used to free lance for a prestigious local newspaper but then did not write since I was too busy with my family and career. When I resumed my writing, I submitted articles to two periodicals. Both rejected my work (one of them later printed my work and even sent me a small fee).

I decided that I would no longer try to submit my work to others but would write for myself. This is why I launched my blog. I love repeating this story because I feel it may be inspiring for someone.

My Advice for New Bloggers

1. Think of what you want your blog to be like and what type of posts you would like to write. Then search for posts on similar topics and read them. You might like to check out my post The Best School For Bloggers.

2. Don’t hesitate to post your content. It is useless to keep waiting to write that perfect post. Just make sure there are no errors of grammar and spelling.
