Happy Monday to all you lovely people! ☺

It’s my 3 Year Blogiversary 🎂🎉💃🏽

Even though it’s been three years since I created Kind Culture, I still feel like I’m starting out. I’m yet to achieve so much more!

This blog has opened up opportunities to collaborate with so many wonderful people and be a part of an amazing community of bloggers that advise and support one another. I am honestly so grateful for all the opportunities and connections that I’ve made through Kind Culture.

As it’s my three-year blogiversary, I thought I’d share 3 tips for those of you that want to start a blog.

3 Tips for new bloggers:

1.  Find your niche

Before you start blogging, take your time to plan everything – from what it is that you want to blog about, to who you want your readers to be, and what platforms you want to use etc. Finding and establishing your niche helps keep the rest of your content focussed and helps you find your tribe.

Admittedly, I wish that I spent more time keeping my content focussed on my niche. In the past two years, I learnt to work on that skill and as a result my blog reach grew significantly.

2. Be honest with your readers

Having a genuine connection with readers that relate to you and engage with your content is what makes the difference between being just a blogger and being the best blogger possible.

Being honest with how I’m feeling, and my experiences, has given the chance for my readers to connect on a more personal level. And the mutual support is uplifting.  

3. Make the blog work for you

– Don’t work for it!

Your blog shouldn’t overshadow your other commitments in life. Part of the fun in having a blog is that you’re in charge. Don’t allow yourself to become overwhelmed with everything. Sometimes as bloggers, it’s easy to get caught up in posting consistently, maintaining social media following, and everything else that comes with blogging. It’s okay to just take a step back from blogging to focus on other things in life.

Most of the best changes that I made to my blog came from the times that I took a break from blogging.

Everyone has their own style of working, and your blog should fit around that.

I’d love to share more advice with any new bloggers that are looking to start out, feel free to email me anytime you like.

I’ve not been feeling too well so I haven’t had the chance to buy some cupcakes (that’s basically my little way of celebrating, hence the stock image), but I will definitely be celebrating this milestone soon!

Thank you for all of your love and support ♥

    1. Thank you Hebah ☺ Once you try different topics and styles of blogging and explore what works best for you then you eventually end up finding your niche xx

  1. Hello Sonam! Congratulations on reaching your three-year blogiversary! It’s great to achieve this milestone and hope you’ll keep your blog going. I appreciate these tips – it’s helpful for new bloggers and at the end of the day, we all want to be honest. It’s easier to be truthful from the beginning than to get foiled (from lying) 5 years later and lose a ton of reputation. YES on making the blog work for you! Blogging is supposed to be a hobby, unless you’re getting paid bank. Keep it up!

    1. Hey Nancy ☺ Thank you for the love! Exactly, being open about your experiences helps you go a long way, authenticity is so important when blogging. xx
