the beginning of the dreamcashe blog


Counting Pennies and Nickels.

There are so many people out there who start a second blog.  I know one or two bloggers out there who actually have more than two blogs. So why have I decided now to start doing another blog? Well, I have just come up with an idea for the title.  That is it.  Just the title.  I then searched the name 'dreamcashe' in the general Google search, and thought, that does sound really cool, I know I shall create myself another little writing project.  Considering I can be quite indecisive about such things, this was a pretty quick decision for me and I am so pleased.

If this blog does work the way I would like it to and I decide to delve deeper into my explorations, then this blog will be my seventh blog in ten years.   Seven blogs does sound like a lot I know.  I am not entirely sure what the average amount of blogs any one person creates over their lifetime.  I bet it is a fair few.   That is probably because people like to test different ideas for blogs before they find the one they really want to settle with.   Or maybe it's just me?

Something else I have decided not to do this time round, is spend hours of my time putting in 'blog designs' in every search engine on the internet.   You can't deny we've all done it, well most of us have, and it takes up an awful lot of time, time that could have been better spent writing your content instead of worrying about what it looks like.  From my own personal experience, readers don't just automatically come to view your blog just because you have your name up in lights.  I tried it (on numerous occasions) and it didn't work.   So...

I have decided to make a little list of things I would like to achieve with my new blog dreamcashe. I know this is not going to be the entire list because I am hoping to discover more challenges for myself along the way.   For now this is my first list:

1. Explore more (Ideas/Topics/Blogs)

2. Experiment more (With ideas, lengths of posts etc)

3. Improve my writing skills (With Grammarly and maybe a few other sites along the way)

As you can see it is only small.  This is because at this early stage of this blog's development I don't want to put too much pressure on myself by putting too much on my plate to do so early.  I doubt that would end very well.  I do prefer little and often as a rule.  But there is nothing wrong with a little gentle exploration to begin with.

Ever since I was nine years old I have always wanted to be a writer.  This contributed to my decision to become a blogger.   What some people don't realize is how easy it is to become a blogger.  The best thing to do if you want to become a blogger, and that goes for all fields, topics to talk about, theories to discuss, whatever, is to simply just start.   An do you know what one of the most important things about writing a blog (and writing in general) don't let anyone tell you, you CANT do it.  Because you can do it.   You just need to put in a little time, a little effort, and a little imagination.   It's amazing what you can come up with if you really think about it.

One of the key things I have already started to do is to read more blogs.   I can hear you thinking, don't you do that anyway, read loads of other blogs on different topics and products etc, being a blogger yourself and all.... for ten years, as I previously mentioned.   Actually no I haven't.   Not in the past.  This is the first time, in the year 2020, that I can honestly say that I have started to properly expand my blog reading and my blogging connections.   Most of those blogs I find through Twitter, but I do find through Google, which I also do from time to time.

I have always shared my blog on Twitter.   It is my first social network port of call for promoting any posts I have written, and it is where I can easily find other blogs to read and share.  I do read blogs about different topics, mostly Lifestyle in general, but I do enjoy reading blogs about Movies, Books, Art, Photography, and Mental Health.   As well as Twitter I also share my blog to Pinterest, Medium, Digg, and Mix, which is a new one I have found recently.  I also enjoy reading blogs on Bloglovin' which is a really great website to find blogs in all different topics and you can easily connect with other people and keep track of the things they love to write about, as well as sharing your own blog to Bloglovin'.   It doesn't matter where you share your blog as long as you do share it.  Because if you don't, who is going to know about it?

One of the things I mentioned earlier in this post was that I wanted to improve my writing skills.  Okay it was number 3 on the list, however I thought before I publish this post I want to check it for word length.  No I have not done that before either, there is a first for everything as they say.  Whilst I was also finding that out, I also found a link to I thought that might be an idea to check that out whilst I was doing a word count.  Let me tell you Grammarly is one of the best free tool out there for bloggers and writers.   If you have never used it before I highly recommend it.

I am really excited about this blog.   I think it will allow me to learn so much about myself, and my writing, and of course my blogging which I am always wanting to improve.   It is going to be a new little adventure for me.

Thank you for reading.

I think most people have had or still have more than one blog. I run two now, but had another one before that. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

How exciting to be starting another blog! And I think it was Stephen King who said if you want to be a writer then you need to read a lot so it sounds as if you're in the right mindset already - good luck! Lisa

Thank you for your comment Lisa! It is exciting especially, as I see it as a little challenge for me. And you are right, Stephen King did say that. He's my favourite Author :)Thank you again for reading my post and commenting I really appreciate it x Take care x
