When you post links to blogs, articles, or other pieces of content to your social media accounts, are you using hashtags? Before we get into whether or not you’re doing this, let’s talk about why they’re essential on your posts.
What does it mean to become a new writer daily? When I started writing, I was excited, invigorated, and terrified. The “newness” is what drove me to want to do better, learn more, and connect with other writers. I couldn’t wait to find new opportunities, hear about what others were doing, and find out about new techniques. I could taste the excitement. Some days it the experience sweet and others it was bitter.
Do you have an interest in launching a lifestyle blog about your travels? Is it your dream to see your travel essays in print or on a travel website? If so, having life writing or autobiographical skills is your first step in those directions. Instead of writing about why you believe your trip was the best, instead, you’ll be inspiring your readers with your stories.
