Like me, many of you have recently celebrated your one year blog anniversary so cast your mind back, if you can, to when you first decided to start. I never had a problem with what I was going to write about; that was the easy part for me. However, I was overwhelmed by all the various themes and gadgets available to me; especially as most of you know how incompetent I am when it comes to the mystifying world of technology. For the record I’m still hopelessly pants at Twitter and aren’t hashtags a new breakfast cereal?
Having trawled through many of your sleek and glossy blogs, I can now admit to being a little intimidated and awed at the very beginning; in fact, some days I still feel that way. Twelve months on and I’m delighted to say that it’s no longer just my Mum who reads my blog; although I’m sure she was my only reader initially!
I have absolutely loved this journey of discovery and there isn’t a single day when I don’t learn something new. I have, of course, all of you to thank for welcoming me warmly into the blogging community and you have all at some time given me the very best of counsel and encouragement. So as you were all kind enough to share your knowledge with me, what would be the one piece of advice that you would give any new blogger starting up?
