The Day I Started Blogging

Since it’s less than two days away until the new year, I decided to write a blog post about blog posts. Literally. So today’s topic is: why I started to blog. I definitely don’t blog as much as I should, but for what I do, I like it. Blogging’s fun. It’s like an online journal for the whole world to read. Somewhere you can place everything you love and write about anything that interests you at all. When I first got my blog, I just wanted it to be a website about me, my novels, my acting career, and my motivational speaking career. Then as time went on, I realized that WordPress was specifically designed to be a blogging platform. So, I began to write more blogs. A lot of opinion pieces, influential quotes, stuff like that. Then as I acted a bit more and did a public speaking event, I realized that juggling three things (being a novelist, actress, and public activist) was too much for me to handle as a career and I just wanted one thing to focus on. Since I’ve been writing books since a little girl, I decided on dropping the acting and motivational speaking titles and just continue on with writing. This is why my blogs are a lot more wordy now, rather than just quotes like they used to be. But I do love quotes still! You probably noticed. My favourite author and I talk sometimes (I know, she’s totally awesome) and she told me that publishers enjoy looking at blog posts and that every good author should have one. Right on! I’m going to stop rambling on now. But in conclusion, what I thought about the day I started writing on my blog was: “Writing’s fun. Blogs are fun. Let’s do this.” And so I have! Oh, and, I get to proclaim my obsession for the colour pink. Also in case you haven’t noticed, which you probably have.

Have a great week!

Goodbye Christmas

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas! It came and left so early, it always seems. I had a fun time and the gifts were a bit overwhelming (which is an extremely good thing!) The next big event is New Year’s Eve, of course. Then after that, it’s the new year! What are your resolutions this year, if any? I always make a list with ten resolutions and check them off as they come true. This year, I think I got 6/10. Not too shabby! I’m also excited for 2015 because I’m going to start blogging like crazy. Already have a line up with reviews (books, beauty, random items, etc) and other cool stuff. I also want to start connecting with some other bloggers! You can never have too many blog buddies. 🙂 I’m taking a different route now with Mackenzie High. This is also the year that I go crazy with the publication process. Fingers crossed! Wish me luck! And for the writers/readers out there, you know how annoying writer’s block can be. So any suggestions for blog topics would be great! As we close off the Christmas season and welcome in the new year, we step into a clean state and can really make the upcoming year the best one yet! Always stay positive. ❤ Victoria
