A new reader just clicked on your blog. He scrolls down the first page, has a short look at you latest post. He gets curious and reads maybe another one or two. But now, he wants to know more about the writer. He wants to know more about you. Do you have a guess what he will do as next? – Correct, he will click on your “About” page.
Whenever I talk to somebody and try to encourage them to start blogging they often counter my idea with the answer of having no spare time. While thinking about this rare good – the time – a friend of mine comes to my mind, because she always said when I was too busy to do things: “One has not time, one has to take the time.” I used to get annoyed by this sentence because it’s a fact that the day only has 24 hours, however, she was right. Think about the time you wasted on a Saturday morning just lying in your bed. Of course, we need these lazy days from time to time but being productive in the mornings just gives me personally a great feeling of actually being able to achieve something. Continue reading
I am really excited to introduce you to one of the most inspirational bloggers. Juni Desireé was one of my first followers and I remember that I first couldn’t believe that such a great blogger was following me. Since then I followed her blogging journey with a lot of joy. She covers not only topics on writing, books, but also on life, self-improvement and on being a better person.

If you want to learn more about her, she recently wrote a post about her personal principles which describe her lovely personality very well.

One could argue that people primarily follow a blog because it evolves about the same topic but one could also represent the opinion that readers enjoy blogs with a wide range of subjects.
You have no idea how much time I wasted with searching the right answer to my question on how many words a blog post should be. I googled for this information several days with the hope that I eventually will know the amount of words required for a successful post. Sometimes the number 2000 showed up and I thought how the heck I am going to be able to write so much? Another word limit was 200 words which is little. And in retrospective, I know that this time-consuming search was for nothing. The only thing I got out of this search was a slowly but steadily developing self-doubt. “Are my posts long enough? I only got 900 words… Is it sufficient?” Continue reading
