I know I’m probably at a point where I should pass these types of things up because there are much better people for these, but honestly I love doing these. Probably my favorite types of post are these ones, most because I get the chance to highlight others and that’s amazing! I have to give a shout out to Dylan over at Dylan’s Daydream for nominating me!

How my blog got started:
So, about a year and a half ago, all I was doing was working and I was getting very bored with myself. For a long time I had always dabbled in the idea of having a blog, but I never really knew where to start. I was starting to face the reality that I would probably end up working at a desk job, being super tired with my life, and I couldn’t have that. But that’s not exactly why I started my blog. I started my blog because I was talking to a friend and giving her advice and she said “Megan why don’t you have a blog?” and that really started the fire that was that thought. Now I had this thought seed placed in my head, and so… well, that’s when I started Love, Megan Anne. Now, it’s my home. I can’t even imagine not doing this and just recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to make this my full-time job, not quite sure how yet, but this is my goal.
Two pieces of advice:
- Do whatever you want. A lot of articles will say that in order to start a blog you need to have a niche, and while it may be easier that way, honestly having a niche shouldn’t be the most important thing. Try everything out until you find exactly what it is you like to do.
- 80 – 20. The best advice I ever received was this. You should be spending 80% of the time marketing, connecting, scheduling, etc. Only 20% actually writing and editing. I’m not saying putting out crap just to put it out, but you need to be spending a good amount of time on the backend of stuff. Growth will only happen if you put yourself out there and unless you are super lucky, that’s not going to happen unless you spend time putting out your content out there.
