Thanks, PrincessofPages for the nomination! Sorry, it’s taken me so long to get to it.

The start of my blog is simultaneously boring and heartbreaking. I’d been writing for a couple of years and wanted to start a blog to establish my online presence but didn’t think there was much point before I had something interesting to share. It wasn’t until I received an offer of contract with a small publisher that I finally decided to pull the trigger. Since then, the publisher went out of business, my book isn’t going to be published, and I’ve struggled a lot with staying motivated.

It’s OK though because I’ve met so many amazing bloggers since SHTF in March. Jess and Teagan @ Fictionnochaser,  Loretta @ LaughingListener, Dev (who doesn’t have a blog yet but we all really think she should 😉 @ readbydev (Instagram), Noly @ theartsyreader, Luana @ Bookstormgirl,  Heather @ IamHeatherBlair, Bree @ perpetualfangirl, and of course PrinceofPages to name a few.

These experiences feed into my advice.

No matter your reasons for starting your blog, never give up just because those reasons didn’t pan out.

Find friends or a community of people to keep you motivated and wanting to come back.

Unfortunately, I’m so behind on… well… everything, that I’m not going to be able to go around tagging people after I finish this.

Appreciate you all! Have an awesome day!
