Ive been nominated for the blogger recognition award (squee) by the wonderful Frantasmagoria. She blogs about some really cool stuff, so check out her page.
Why did I start this blog?
Well, I'm a creative person. I write, paint and draw, and blogging was just another way for me to use my creativity. After I made my website, it seemed like a logical step to include a blog :)
My blog is more of a creative outlet than a job, and so I don't really have a theme, as you'll find on most blogs. I blog about all the things I love and find interesting. I know every advise for bloggers is to find your theme and stick to it, but I'm not in it to earn money, or get millions of readers (not that theres anything wrong with that as a goal) so I can allow myself to be a bit all over the place.
Two pieces of advice for new bloggers
1) Network. Join twitter, and use the #writingcommunity. There is so many awesome bloggers out there, ready to help and answer questions. Join blog shares, find people to swap blog posts with. Be part of the community and it will help you so much.
2) Plan. This is probably the best advice I can give. In the beginning blogging seems so easy and then suddenly it isn't. And that's when planning helps :) I wrote a few posts about how I planned a whole year that you can check out if you're interested.

(I know it says 15 bloggers in the rules, but I'm so bad at saving links, so I have to do some digging to find all the blogs I like to read. I normally just go to read them when they post on twitter :P I promise to add more when I find them)
Rules For The Blogger Recognition Award
A writer's life
This is the blog where a slightly crazy author writes rambling posts about everything and nothing. There's posts about my books, writing and social media. Posts about cooking and reviews. And there's posts about life.
Please notice: I do not earn money on this blog. I do not have affiliated links, and I'm not paid by any product I might mention on this blog. I'm just an artist who loves to blog. If you want to support me, buying one of my books would warm my heart. If they aren't to your taste, then support another indie artist instead.
We could all need your help.
Thank you <3
