Now it’s time for me to tell you how I started my blog:
Basically, I am a book nerd and video game player. I just recently graduated from college with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Writing for Print and Digital Media with a minor in English Literature. While I was in college, I had started a blog Healthy Body Peace of Mind where I talked about my issues with struggling with heart disease and living a healthy life style. But I didn’t want to continue writing that blog. While I didn’t mind writing about my personal health, I wanted to focus more on the things I love to do: books and video games. As someone who reads books and plays video games on a daily basis, I wanted to write about these experiences and show my readers a diverse blog that could showcase both of my passions. I came up with the name for my blog Vook: Books + Video Games because I wanted to come up with a unique name that combined the words books and video games. And that is how my blog was born.
Advice to those who just started blogging:
Find a topic that you are passionate about and write! Don’t write about something just because it interests you but write about something you have a strong passion for. Focusing your blog on something you care about will make your blog that much more interesting to your readers and will bring out the best writer in you. And let the words come to you. Don’t write because you feel obligated to. Write whenever you feel the words come to you and when you are ready to show what you’ve written to the world. And write in a way that will intrigue and interest your readers in wanting to read more of your posts. That is the best advice I feel like I can give to you because as a new blogger myself, I am still learning and working on making my blog better.
