The origin of This Halcyon Life
Back in 2016, I was trying to think of new hobbies that I would be interested in. I’ve always loved to write, and I wanted to somehow share my personal experiences with the world. I started this blog, originally, in April 2016 writing about whatever came to mind. After a few months, I wasn’t liking the direction my blog was going in. I abandoned my blog and didn’t come back to it until September 2017. At that point, I deleted all of my posts and wanted to start fresh. I wrote down some topics I wanted to write about– decor, minimalism, mental health, self-care… and I gave my page a makeover as well. Ultimately, I want to make this blog a positive place where I can write about topics that help myself and others live a better, more fulfilling life. Now, I’m a lot happier with where my blog is going!
Advice for new bloggers
Write for yourself. Always write about things that interest you and are things you would like to read yourself. The moment you start writing for your readers or writing things like other bloggers is when you might start to lose motivation. Find your passions, and your audience will grow!
Support other bloggers. If you like someone’s blog post or even a tweet of theirs, let them know! It might make their day, and it’s a great way to network with other bloggers!
