I am so excited to be nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award. I started my blog less than a month ago, so you can imagine how big of a deal this is to me:-).
First of all, I would like to thank to beautiful Lindsay behind Millennial Mindset blog for nominating me. Her motto is ‘Life is only as good as your mindset.’ which I absolutely agree with. I really recommend you to go and read her blog posts about her experience in going vegan for 30 days and some great tips for 10-day detox and why our body needs it. Thank you again for this nomination!
How I started One Point of View?
I wrote before about why I started this blog. One of the reasons were my friends who convinced me that I need to share with the world the way I think about life. How we can all make it easier and more beautiful and how to deal with difficulties in our lives. The other reason was my 3 beautiful children. See, I truly believe that we can all accomplish everything we want. If we really make an effort in achieving the goal we’ve set and don’t give up on our way there, only the sky is our limit. I want to pass that on to my kids and to do that, I need to set an example and not just talk about it.
Advice to aspiring bloggers
Before I launched One Point of View, I researched about blogging, marketing, social media and everything else in this field for about 6 months. I would recommend everybody to do that, because once you start, it can get overwhelming and this research really helped.
There will be times when you will think ‘Is this for me? Am I good enough?’. So always remember why you started, it will keep you going.
My last advice might be the most important one – when it’s needed, imagine you’re working for someone else. Sometimes, when I want to publish something about me and I’m worried how it might look or if I want to ask someone a question I think that person might find it silly, I imagine I have a boss who told me to do that and suddenly it all looks easier?. This might seem funny to you, but try it, you’ll see it works. I received the best feedback after these ‘brave’ actions.
Well, that’s all about me, folks! Here comes the fun part!
