My Blogging Journey
Writing has always been one of many passions I held deep within my heart. Along with the need to help those overcome the darkest parts of their minds. I created Maybe Crazy Help after going through the death of a friend taking their own life. Furthermore, a month before I decided to start writing someone dear to me died of a drug overdose. Heartbroken and fed up with how cruel the world can be I began writing to help others out of their mental pain. There is so much more to life than pain and suffering, I want to be someone who can spread light in the darkest times. I use firsthand experiences to let others know they are not alone. I am still at the beginning of my blogging journey and learning so much, I am excited to see where this all goes.
Advice for Beginner Bloggers
- Do not be afraid to invest in your blog, especially if you want to grow it into something you can turn into a career. Remember, sometimes it takes money to make money.
- Go for it and do not turn back. If you have found something you love and enjoy writing about, do not be afraid to share it with the world. You are unique and so are your writings.
- Never give up. When things begin to look down try finding a different way of doing things, instead of giving up. Sometimes we need a new perspective to get the ball rolling again.
- Write from the heart. When you write from your heart you can see the passion through the writings you create.
- Be yourself. There is only one you and you are unique. Let that blossom through your writings.
