Nerdy Book Life

Blogger Recognition Award!

Before I started this blogging journey, I did a lot of research and thinking before I hit publish. I thought about what I wanted to write about, and went through several brainstorming sessions until I settled on my niche!

At first, Nerdy Book Life was just going to be about bookish things, and book reviews. Then, I noticed that if I wrote about my life and mental health story, that maybe it would help others in their daily fight. So, let me explain the components to Nerdy Book Life

Nerdy –  Well, I love all things nerdy. I read, write, and research just about anything
Books – I have a huge passion for books, and I love all things bookish!
Life – I love life and my life consists of living and fighting through depression and anxiety

I was really nervous when I posted my first post and then I got really bummed because it didn’t get very much attention. That hasn’t stopped me though, and my content has gotten better and I have gained a lot of attention! My blog has grown so much and I love sharing my love of books and life with everyone who reads it!

Advice For New Nerds… I mean Bloggers!

Nerdy Tip #1 Blogger Recognition Award!

Just write! Share your passion with the world and people will love what you write. Now, it won’t be an overnight thing, and it takes time, but it is so worth it to see your passion grow. Do not give up on your dreams or your passion!

Nerdy Tip #2   Blogger Recognition Award!

Research, research, research! Don’t do what I did and just jump right in! Take your time, write more than one post and get your site to where you want it to be before you go live. I jumped right in and well, I changed my theme several times until I settled on the one I use. Also, plan a schedule that works for you. My schedule used to be a post a day, and it was overwhelming! I know post twice a week and it works so much better for me and my traffic.

    Congratulations on the Blogger Recognition Award!! The advice was much on point! It took me about 6 months to get everything exactly how I wanted on the blog and with my schedule. I’m glad I took that time to figure it out before going live.

    1. NerdyBook Life June 29, 2017 at 11:05 am

      Thank you! It’s definitely been a huge learning experience but I love doing what I do!

      1. Katisha @ Reel Literature June 29, 2017 at 12:51 pm

        Definitely agree!! I’m so glad I finally stopped talking about blogging and just started blogging already! 🙂
