How the Diary of a Little Peach got started
It all began just about a year ago. This month we will celebrate our one year blog anniversary! Sometimes it seems like only yesterday, but when I look through the posts that we have published over the year, I see how much time has really passed.
I’m a first born, and currently only child, and mommy was always looking for information and advice on how to take care of me. We discovered so many parenting blogs and that’s when it dawned on me. All of this parenting advice but not a single bit of input from the babies themselves. I felt that I had to represent my fellow babies and give a voice to those who express themselves without words.
Mommy liked the idea of chronicling my adventures and quickly jumped on board. With mommy as my assistant, and a lot on my mind, I was ready to become a blogger. That is how the Diary of a Little Peach came to be and mommy and I have been loving the journey.
My Blogging Advice
When mommy and I first entered the world of blogging, we were both shocked at how much of our time would be devoted to promoting our blog. As a blogger you have to find readers. My first piece of advice to new bloggers would be to think about marketing and places to advertise your blog. Social media is an excellent place to start, as are linkys, and the occasional guest post on another blogger’s site.
My second piece of advice would be to read a lot of blogs. There are so many benefits to this. You meet new people who share the same blogging passion and you can begin to build a community. Visiting other blogs is a great way to see how other people do it, find advice on what to do, and get inspiration for your own blog.
There are so many wonderful bloggers out there. It’s difficult to narrow it down to only 15. I decided to select some of those that caught my eye this past week.
1. Odd Hogg
2. Mummy To Dex
11. Kippers And Curtains
14. One Frazzled Mum
15. Burnished Chaos
You’re doing a great job. I made this for you.
