Brand New Mommy Blogger
« on: Jan 03, 2015 @ 10:44 AM »
Hello All,

I am totally new to all of this. I have been wanting to start a blog since forever. Not knowing where to start or how has been keeping me from it. I have come to the conclusion that the only way to begin is to just do it and learn. I have written one post only just today. I wrote a small review of the movie, "Into the Woods". I just wanted to begin somewhere and that's where I did. Is that odd?

Anyway, I would love any tips, advice or feedback of any kind. If you would like me to follow you in exchange for you following me, I would be more than willing to do so. I have also played with the idea of trying to write a blog or post for others just to get my feet wet. So, if you are interested in that as well, let me know.

I am enjoying reading through all of the posts. It helps to know that I am not alone.

This is a great community for new bloggers. I read your post, and can 't wait to see more. I started following you on Facebook. As far as feedback, if possible I would make the header longer and shorter, and change the menu options to just below this. I couldn't find an email list, however I would suggest using one of two free services (they are free up to around 1,200 subscribers or so, which makes it great for us beginners). I heard great things about MailChimp, but personally I use Mad Mimi and like it very much. I also find great blogging advice in the book How to Blog for Profit, and from ProBlogger.com.

If you have any specifics, I can let you know what I have noticed so far. However, I have only been blogging since about October.

Good luck with your blog, it really is a nice way to find your voice.

I totally agree with you about that! I had the same situation here back in March when I started my blog.

I read your post and loved it! But it's impossible to tell from one post the theme of a whole blog. I think you should continue blogging for a few month and then look back on your posts. Then you'll be able to make a conclusion about what do you have there.

I really suggest you to keep blogging for your own joy, make the content of your blog and not worry about the readers at first.
Good luck!
I'll be happy to watch your growth!

Welcome to Top Mommy Blogs!!
I too recently started blogging, in October, and I feel I have a stronger voice for sure. It's been so fun and what a learning experience.  I followed you on your social networks.  This site is a great place to meet and get some great advice. 

Have a great weekend!
Jenn
