How it all started

The Words of a Writer was actually first called Everything Awesome and Important. (Yes. That was really the name of my blog.) Looking back, I can’t believe I thought that was a good idea, but hey, everyone makes mistakes. 😉 My dad helped me set up the blog, and soon I was posting almost every day. At the time, stories flowed onto the pages freely, and new ideas would constantly pop into my head. Nowadays I struggle to be committed, but I hope to become more consistent this year.

Advice for new bloggers

Don’t let your blog become a burden. Write when it’s fun to write, not when you feel like you have to. None of your followers are sitting in front of their computer screens waiting for a post notification, so take your time. Trust me. I can tell you from experience. I’ve done it before and it was a horrible mistake. Lastly, have fun. I know it’s cliche, but just be free and write your heart out!


Congratulations to all of these lovely bloggers! You guys are ALL awesome. 😉
