Brief History of My Purple Points –
Let’s make this quick and simple. I’ve been blogging since 2012 and have used different platforms and blogging sites from Multiply, WordPress and Blogger. I also used to have a beauty blog named My Purple Points on Blogger, which is why I used the same name for this blog because that old blog started my fame in blogging actually. Hehe.
So now, aside from beauty blogging, I’ve been writing more about my other passions like travel, food, and other life experiences. Blogging has become my hobby and like my “alter-ego”. It’s like being a completely different person online and being very different from what I normally do for a living. Being a simple hobby, I’m not really after the usual perks like free stuff and compensation – they’re just bonuses if I do get one. I’m happy just writing my own reviews, opinions, and thoughts, while sharing my travel experiences and influencing people in my own little way. That’s what blogging for me is all about.
Two (2) Pieces of Advice to New Bloggers –
First, write about your passion, what inspires you, and enjoy it. The readers will come to you when you write with passion, creativity and your own style. It’s about being authentic and real.
Second, keep your blog posts simple. As a reader, I like blog posts to be simple, quick and straight to the point. And of course, lots of photos. Make it something that is “reader-friendly” and “idiot-friendly”. Readers will appreciate it a lot, especially people like me who don’t have a lot of time to read through a long article.
