How I started My Blog

Hello again! Now I’m getting serious to post frequently that I even made a schedule so that each week my blog won’t be empty with new posts. Since my whole Monday till Friday is full with work hmm guess what I even talk about my work after office hour even it is not officially doing ‘work’, well office gossip can also considered as work because it is still related to work haha (you get what I’m saying?) That is why I’m telling myself that I should write on the weekend. Do not waste time sitting at the corner thinking what to eat je.

Before I loaded with all the heavy post, I realized that I should share about this blog; main thing about blogging is you should get used to tell your readers your story.

And here are my story on how I started my blog

I tried not to remember the day when I posted my first ever blog post on blogger. It was on 23rd September 2009. I was 20 years old – 7 years before. See I started quite late. Nowadays there a lots of young blogger, they started earlier than me. Everyone can open up a blog as long you have computer or laptop (and of course internet connection).

To flashback on how I first started knowing blogger is not easy. Haha I could not recall how I did but I was interested with the pretty layout they made on blogskin, so I started creating one. My first blog name was ‘athrapinkyelf’. So not fun. Try to pronounce it correctly if you could. I spend so much time editing my blog, it was my hobby. I even help my blog friends to edit their blog. Back then it was different in terms of my blog friend list and how we followed each other blog. It always started with ‘please mention me in the chatbox if you want to be in my friend list’. And then taraa your name in my friend list.

I remember I was aiming all the kpop fans around the world. We shared our kpop biases art work. Remember back then ‘icon, banner, twitter header, twitter background, gifs’ was so popular. I learnt to do photoshop and shared all my graphics on my blog.

I also did lots of sharing of the latest news of Kpop idols (most post I deleted because idek why I am so emotional about favourite idols). My blog traffic doing quite good and I even cash out my nuffnang money. That keep me motivated to share a lot more till I quietly stopped writing like I used to. Early this year make me realized that I should write again.

The blogger community nowadays change differently. I see lots of blogger posted so many fun and intellective topic which I enjoyed so much. As I am trying to build back my blogging platform with much more educational post, I realized it wasn’t as easy as before. I did all the important things on ‘how to grow your blog bigger and how to increase blog traffic’ like having good post and titles and include with photo, improve my search engine, read and comment on other blog and others. I also did buy a responsive template for my blog. Then I realize, I should write more often. This is what I am not doing.

So buckle up Tyra, you never got to achieve something higher if you don’t do more.

Till then. Thank you for reading. If you want me to share anything else you may comment down below.
