There are plenty of bloggers who blog about blogging. To me that all feels a bit circular, a bit ‘meta’, but I can see how articles about blogging can be useful to other bloggers – I’ve even read a few myself.
It’s not something I write about, however. Partly because Passport & Pixels is a travel blog, and I don’t want to muddy the waters, but mainly because I know practically nothing about blogging! I’m very much a content creator: I write stuff, and take photos, and use my blog as a way to share my content and hopefully inspire people. But when it comes to the nuts and bolts of blogging: the design, the engagement, the stats and the SEO, I’m completely clueless. If you want advice about that sort of stuff, definitely don’t come to me!
So I was a bit surprised when a lovely lady named Faye at The Clothing Lounge said she’d be interested to hear what I had to say about blogging and being a blogger. I don’t even know anything about fashion! But I was more than happy to answer her questions, and she then put my answers into a post, very flatteringly entitled The Bloggers You Need To Be Reading.
So if you’re interested in how I got into blogging, why I think it’s important, and why I think people should read blogs, then here it is:
