Hey there! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
Does running a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work?
I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my
diary daily. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share
my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or
tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

Hi there,

Thank you for sending this through, we really appreciate it. We’re quite keen on sharing what we know with you.

Running a blog can be a lot of work depending on the type of content that push out to your audience. We make sure that we have at least 5 unique pieces of content every week, which requires planning ahead. We make use of an editorial calendar and jot down article ideas.

We miss targets from time to time, especially since we also work full time jobs outside of this blog. We suggest that you go for it, we need more unique voices online to create content. Your story is valuable and people need to hear it. There are thousands of people that would connect with your story or the content that you create.

Main tip: Go for it. Shoot your shot. The world needs to hear your stories and bask in your excellence.

Good luck. We look forward to seeing you rock.
