So, my Anonymous series hasn’t quite picked up yet, but luckily, I’m running it all year so there is still time. In the meantime, I will be posting one surprise post once a month every month so keep your eyes peeled!
Anyway, It’s Friday! It’s been such a hectic week, but I loved every bit of it – a true example of living life to the full!
A few days ago, I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by Rap-Double-Oh-Baby. Thank you so much for this, Lady! Your blog has been awesome to read and your story about how you got started is such an inspiration! Please check her blog out!

Once Upon a Time
I’ve actually been blogging since 2011 so it has been a long time! I was fresh out of university, positive about life and all it had to offer and in a job that did very little to challenge me at the time, although I was grateful to have something to do from 8 – 4 and earn a little bit of money, so I started My Ramblings back then in an effort to ward off the boredom and to have a little fun too! I moved to WordPress about 3 years ago and I haven’t looked back 🙂
New Kids on the Blog
If you are new to blogging and want to make it a worthwhile experience, then you have to engage with other bloggers as much as possible. Follow blogs that you like and like and comment on as many of them as possible. This is a community and we need each other in order to grow! You will find once you follow other blogs, that there are things that you like and things that you don’t like. Apply the things you like to your own blog and get rid of the things you dislike from your own blog too. I discovered through following other bloggers that I struggle keeping up with lengthy posts because, life, and so I make my posts short so that people can read them in a minute or two. I also found it hard to keep up with bloggers that posted everyday and that is how I chose 2 days in the week in which to post. And lastly, advice I received from Heartstring Eulogies: Keep writing. It’s the only way you will improve and find what works best for you! Oops! that was 3! sorry!
If you read this post and wanted to participate in this activity, consider yourself nominated!
Thank you so much for joining me today! I absolutely loved surprising you! I still have to tell you about last night’s Eat out Experience so pop back in on Sunday, OK? Have an awesome day and restful weekend!
