My thanks to SarahC for taking the time out to both address and answer the Truly Inspired questions and to introduce her blog, herself and the whirrings of her mind to us all.
SarahC’s advice to new bloggers is sound and true – ‘just do it, just write’, engage, comment and like and interact with other bloggers and slowly and surely friendships arise through that communication. It’s indeed a great way to meet new people and to try different styles to see what works and doesn’t work for you.
So, if as of yet, you are not aware of SarahC’s blog This N That With Me my advice as usual is to hope, skip and jump your way over there to check out what she has to say.
So what inspired YOU to start your blog?
