Research is all about questions and I've been asking questions. I've been looking for advice from the online people, the bloggers, business people and creatives and some of them were kind enough to supply me with some tips and a little advice....
'Be yourself' came up a lot.
My little website questionnaire was created to explore blogging across all genres, everyones opinion was more than welcome. I wanted to know who are you? What would you tell me if I asked for newbie advice?
The respondents were mothers, mentors, home based businesses, artists and creators all putting stuff out there, telling a story, sharing a recipe, creating art or reviewing a product and willing to share some advice. Honesty came up a few times too.
"Be you, everyone else is taken" (Geradine, 'It's me Ethan')
Some of the questionnaires were anonymous and thank you. I'd like to give a special shout to Geraldine with her moving and wonderfully honest blog 'It's me Ethan' and Assumpta Connolly from So Sue Me and Ester Kiely, a textile artist in Co Galway. Thank you for taking the time x
Ester Kiely said "Just do it, start as soon as possible and learn as you go" I'm totally into that and I'm putting it out there...
