The birth of infinitelyadaydreamer~
You know how when you’re little, you want to do grown up things like have a ‘fun’ job or well, make a blog?
I do, because that’s me.
This is my one and only only blog, but it’s changed a lot over the past four years that I’ve had it. The name, the content. Everything. infinitelyadaydreamer used to be a very basic, very crappy gaming blog where I squealed over things that people probably had no clue about. Awkward.
Anyway. I never left this blog, and I actually find that pretty surprising. But I stuck with it and it sort of grew with me. I asked others for advice that I didn’t always take, I experimented, and what you’re looking at today is the product of all that. I’m very fun loving and young at heart. I like jokes and have a really quirky personality, but I’m mature at the same time. I feel like my blog is a very accurate representation of me, and I love that.
My top two pieces of advice for new bloggers~
1. Find a blogging schedule that works for you. Up until recently, I had no schedule whatsoever. I lived, of course, but It was super weird. Posts at random times of the day. Sometimes I could write for hours, others I had no inspiration. This really helped me to organise my life too! very important.
2. Quality over quantity. It’s a real thing. When you’re starting out, you may feel like you need to post a lot to catch up and start seeing good stats, but that’s not the case. As I said above, scheduling is key. That’s it. If you’re frequent (but not overly so!) and produce high quality content, you needn’t worry about how many likes, comments or follows you receive. It’ll happen.
