How I Started Blogging
I had wanted to blog way before I actually did it. I have always loved cyber friends, writing, and PICTURES!!! So, I went ahead and made one! However, my first one was for family and friends only, no public allowed. I wanted another one that showed my love for horses and my model horse side of me, so I asked my parents and made what you are viewing now-my public blog Bits and Spurs. It was a little discouraging at first when hardly any people clicked my blog, but when Jennifer Buxton over at Braymere Custom Saddlery put me on her blog roll, things started going. I am 250- page views away from 20,000 with 18 followers and about 10 email followers. Thank you so much, Mrs. Buxton!!!
Tips For Other Bloggers
Don't give up. Even though it may seem that NO ONE ever comes to your blog, they will eventually. You know the saying, Rome wasn't built in a day! Also, for visual people (like me) they won't bother reading a lot of text. Good, clear pictures always attract a crowd. :P That is why I use so many!!!
