How My Blog Got Started:Well, at the time of building this site, my first blog, Loving Your American Girl Doll, had become unfulfilling for me. I didn't enjoy posting and it basically just stressed me out. So out of nowhere I decided to build and design this blog--originally a Dancer's Pointe, sometime in November of 2012 (November 11th, to be sort of exact). It was just a hobby blog until a few months later, when I decided to hunker down and post often. I wanted to share my writings, and have an influential blog with content that made me happy. :)
Advice for new bloggers:Always always always write for yourself. Don't ever compare yourself to bigger blogs and better writers. Doing that will just discourage you from doing something you love to do--whether it be expressing yourself or typing out your feelings. You want to be happy with the content you are posting, so don't care what anyone else thinks. Just continue blogging about what makes you happy. :)
