Hello everybody! It’s May! You know what that means? It’s time for the Newbie Blogger Initiative!
Ever wanted to start a gaming blog? Now is definitely the best time! There’s a whole network of people here to support you, give you advice, maybe even help promote what you do!
Last year, I was a newbie blogger, and I’m still here, I’m still going. If I can do it, anybody can!
A Few Nuggets of Advice
- Writing anything is the best practice you can do. Don’t be worried about whether you’re posting something terrible. Everybody does, but it’s all practice, and in the future you’ll be glad you had that practice.
- That being said, remember to check over your work before you press publish! So many times I’ve pressed publish, and then noticed a spelling mistake! It still frustrates me.
- Got Twitter? Connect with other bloggers! Sometimes they can inspire you to write about stuff, other times they’re a source of good discussion! And you know what? There’s some pretty damn awesome people behind the blogs too.
- Though some feel that having a posting schedule is too rigid and regimented for them, others feel it can be beneficial for them. I try to post three times a week, others do so every day, or once a week. If you’re the sort of person to be motivated by a schedule, stick to it! Consistency is key!
So like I say, it’s the perfect time to get blogging, so sign up on the NBI site and get involved!
