A Brief Overview Of How My Blog Began

 

 

blogger-recognition-award-badgePart of the Blogger Recognition Award, I have to tell the story of how your blog began. So the following is how my blog came about.

I started blogging because I wanted to have some fun and I was curious. I never realized how technical it would get but I must say I’ve had a lot of fun and met a lot of nice bloggers. Blogging didn’t come easy for me but once I got started, I learned a lot to get me through blogging.

My blog started out with the name COUNTRY LIVING. Then shortly there after,  I renamed my blog to WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING). I started WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) in January of 2017. It’s been about 6 or 7 months now and I’m still having fun blogging. Not only have I met several nice people through blogging but I follow several different blogging sites.

After blogging for 3 months, I decided to start CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE because I had so much fun blogging. I’ll talk about that blog in a separate post but since I started WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) has got 185+  followers since January.  This really pleases me that I’ve reached this many followers and it’s all because of my faithful readers and followers.

My blog has pictures, posts and reblogs.

I’ve started taking a 14 day course in the Fundamentals of Blogging. After that, I’ll go from there.

Thanks to everyone who’s helped make my blog successful.pusheen
