MY BLOGGING JOURNEY
Now most of you actually don’t know this but this isn’t my first blog. I’ve been blogging on OblivionAndStars since May, 2015. I started that blog as a place to just let everything out. There are times when I bottle up my thoughts and my emotions and I don’t think it is good for my mental sanity. OblivionAndStars is the place where I speak my mind out on issues which press my mind. Sometimes, they relate to my daily life. Sometimes, they are social issues. That blog is like my little safe haven because at times, real life tends to be way too overwhelming to the point that it becomes difficult to think clearly.
I also tend to drown myself in the fictional world. Books are the love of my life and the idea of having a book blog was something that I had been toying with since 2015. There was a point when I wanted to review books on my first blog but it didn’t really go with the style over there. So I decided to make a separate blog altogether to share my love of books with the rest of the world. With support from my friends, I decided to take the plunge after I finish my exams. And that is how, ThatBibliophilicCauldron was born. (My bestie helped me with the name. She is a genius.)
The support from the blogosphere has been really amazing and I want to continue with my blogs for as long as I live because I seriously think that blogging is good for your health. 🙂
ADVICE TO BLOGGERS
Well, I honestly don’t think I’m in a position to give out advice because I’m still an absolute amateur myself but I’ll tell you some things which I find really helpful. First and foremost, pay attention to what you’re writing. It is ultimately the quality of writing that is going to draw your reader in. Secondly, have a nice welcoming layout for your blog. I myself love blogs with good graphics and pretty pictures. There is just something magnetic about it. So let out your creative and imaginative side. Also, talk to the blogging community. Mix with them. Read their posts. You can make so many great friends! It doesn’t matter whether you have five followers or five hundred followers. They are here for YOUR posts, so always give them your best.
And most importantly, always remember to HAVE FUN.
Here are my nominations :

NonAlexithymic : She is another one of my ultrafabulous friends. She is such a supportive and encouraging person. She usually writes letters to a particular person on her blog and they are spiffing brilliant. Period.
