It's time to talk about something just for the bloggers out there. Initially, I intended this topic to be covered in a single post, but as I thought about it more deeply I realized that it really deserved it's own mini series. In it, I'm going to share in detail my advice on how to love and live with your blog. I don't just mean how to enjoy blogging on a day to day basis, or how to enjoy blogging as a job. This is about making blogging a valuable part of your life, and something that you easily see yourself maintaining for a very long time to come. This is how I feel about the Lune blog now, but it wasn't always that way. I want to show you that for some, the act of blogging runs deeper than what you may see on the surface. That relationship takes time to grow, but with the right perspective you can start building good blog mojo right away.
A brief history on the Lune blog might help you understand where I've come from as a blogger, and where I stand now. My very first post on the Lune Vintage blog was made August 2007. At that time, I was encouraged by a friend to try out blogging. I had no idea what a blog was and she completely introduced me to the idea. My first year of posts were pretty business exclusive, directed toward my local shop. Over time, the Lune Blog has gradually become what is generally described as a Lifestyle Blog. While I still talk business from time to time, this has become a much more personal space and has definitely contributed to the warm fuzzy feeling I have about blogging here. It's a comfortable space for me even though it becomes more and more public as time passes by.
I think what I've learned over the past years here can be translated into useful tips for any new blogger, or for those who've felt they are growing tired of the blogging experience. Here are the topics that I'll be speaking on during this series.
I hope you find inspiration to make blogging a meaningful lasting aspect of your own life through this Lune series. Do you have something you'd like to see me cover? Email your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org.
