There were lots of things that inspired me to start blogging, but my family and friends inspired me most. These lovely people would always tell me that I am a creative and resourceful person, which basically motivated me to share what I have to say with the world. Once I joined Pinterest and discovered YouTube, I knew I wanted to be part of this online world and gave blogging a try.
In this time and day, I learned people are alive but not always living. They are just going through the motions and sometimes do not pursue their passions or interests. I believe we should live life to the fullest and so named my blog Alive & Living, for it encompasses my life mantra. This little blog of mine is a creative outlet where I can talk about all things beauty, display my fashion evolution, try DIYs/crafts, and more.
Advise For New Bloggers
There are many things I have leaned about blogging through trial and error. If you are a new blogger (or even an experienced one!), I recommend creating AND updating a plan of action for postings. What I mean by this is establish a blogging schedule for brainstorming ideas, prepping, and executing your work. I found that consistency is key for blog growth and traffic. Another tip for bloggers is to find others in the blogging community that share your same interests and network. You can learn from their experiences, find inspiration for your content, build friendships, and make blogging worthwhile this way.
I would like to recognize the quality and unique content from the following blogs:
P.S. I post every Tuesday (well, I try too! lol).
