The story of my Blog…
Well, I always had a keen interest of writing. I usually scribbled my thoughts on paper, in note-books and diaries. Until one fine day when hubby brought a new laptop, I started my blog. Initially the blog was named “Hubbhalal”, which should actually have been “Hubb-e-halal”, which means love for halal. At first I wrote all about Halal food and beauty products. Then gradually I began to expand my scope, and then changed my blog’s name to “The Inquisitive Mind”— a mind curious to learn new things. So that’s how this blog came into existence. Thanks to WordPress for making my dream come true. The blogging journey has been a wonderful one with lots of new things to learn and making new blogging friends.
My advice to new bloggers:
♥ Basically, blogging is a passion. The more you write the more you fuel your passion. A truly inspirational quote by a Greek philosopher was what really brought me into this world of blogging.
If you wish to be a writer, write.
So the more you write, the more you hone your skill of writing. Don’t just wait for inspiration to click. Go with the flow, write a bit daily.
♥ So my next advice to new bloggers is, especially for those who wish to make blogging a profession is to put up your blog on social media platforms. Facebook and Instagram do help a lot in bringing viewers to your blog. Be consistent in posting stuff. It takes time to grow, so be gentle on yourself and the blog.
