Hi everyone! I’m so excited to announce today the launch of a new blogging series here on creamylife meant to help us all with blogging and not only. The thing is that I get a lot of questions about how to start a blog, how to become a blogger with a loyal readership and more like these, many newbies dream of having globally recognized blogs, but they’re wondering how to do it and the worst is that they don’t have whom to ask tips and advice. I was in your skin and I know how frustrating this feels. That’s why I decided to start this series, called “blogger to blogger“, where talented and creative, worldwide known bloggers will share their blogging tips with us all (which can definitely be applied in real life) and I sincerely hope my guests will inspire and help you. After all we’re one big family in this blog land, right? :)
The first blogger who kindly accepted to be in this series is the gorgeous Erin from Design for Mankind! She’s my personal idol, an example to follow and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have her here today!
“One of my best tips (that was given to me from a smart gal by the name of Maggie Mason) is to ask for what you want. It sounds simple, but it’s life-changing for three reasons:
1. In order to ask for what you want, you have to know what you want, which requires some serious soul-searching, as well as a bit of trial/error.
2. Asking for what you want gives you ownership over your destiny. You’re no longer floating through life accepting random opportunities, and the result? Pure empowerment.
3. The chances of great things falling in your lap is slim to none. But by being proactive and searching our opportunities, you’re guaranteed to land some great gigs and meet some fantastic people.
I think, especially as women, we often plow through life thinking we’re undeserving of our successes and looking at other women with an envious eye. But by asking for what we want, we can control our own futures in whatever manner we’d like. It’s a beautiful thing, really. Definitely the best advice I have in terms of life, blogging and careers.”
Thank you so much, Erin! These tips are of great use not only for our blogging life, but for our real life as well and I’m sure that by implementing this (and adding some persistence and patience) you can achieve what you dreamed of and even more!
