Event: Busting the Newbie Blues

This Event is basically designed to get new bloggers out there (: It was started over at  Small Review.
  1. When did you start your blog?
    In October I'm pretty sure :P
  2. Why did you start your blog?
    I loved reading other bloggers reviews and thought it was a great idea to share my opinions and keep track of my reading.
  3. What has been the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?
    Gaining Followers, for me it isn't all about getting followers but more would be great!!
  4. What do you find most discouraging about being a new blogger?
    Again Followers :$ I'd love to get more comments and followers to keep me motivated.
  5. What do you find most encouraging?
    When I gain a follower or I get a nice comment/email.
  6. What do you like best about the blogs you read? Have you tried to replicate this in your blog?
    I love some of the backgrounds and layouts. I have tried but I find that you have to pay for a lot of them. I also like it when people keep their reviews pretty short, and yes I have "copied" this.
  7. What do you dislike about blogs you’ve read? Do you try to avoid this?
    Confusing layouts and GIANT reviews
  8. Any advice for other new bloggers?
    Comment on others blogs and just keep trying
  9. Anything else you’d like to share about your experience?
    Umm. Thankyou to the people who do follow me I really appreciate it.
  10. Is there anything you’d like to tell us about your blog?No :)


  1. Thanks for participating!

    Haha, I think I tend toward the GIANT reviews :P
    I agree, comments are very nice and motivating.

  2. By giant do you mean long reviews? I can see where you're coming from. Sometimes I don't need a play by play of the entire story. I just want to know what was good, bad, and what the overall opinion of it was. Too short isn't always good, either, though!

    I've fell into the layout problem, too. I've decided to keep my blogger layout for now, but if I'm still around next year (fingers crossed!!) I may buy a layout....


  3. Hi fellow Newbie!

    I agree, getting followers can be tough. As you said though, for me that's not my main goal, but it would be nice to have more. Oh, and I think I also fall into the category of GIANT reviews. :p

    Oh I love the quote you have at the top by the way:

  4. Do you mean a lengthy commentary by the giant? I can see where you came from. Sometimes, I do not need to play the game the whole story. I just want to know what is good or bad, and what it is. Too short and not always good, either, even though!
