How I Started My Blog-Diary Of A Mounatin Girl 


I am a trained journalist and writing is something I love and enjoy doing since childhood. For the longest time I used to write in my diary (I still do). Back in my college days (2009-10) when I came to know about the concept of blogging; my first reaction was "I want to have my own blog" but I didn’t start immediately, I explored some of the blogs first for few months. I used to read blog posts of 3-4 people regularly. 

Most of those blogs were started by renowned journalists, writers and media houses (for a moment I felt will I be able to pull it off). After 2-3 months, I felt like I should start my own blog as there were so many thoughts running in my mind. So, finally I created blogger account and stared posting randomly. Initially, I used to post whatever I felt like posting (like most of the people do). I was quite happy to have my own online diary, where I could write about anything and everything.

De-Cluttering & Re-Designing My Blog

Up until this year I used to write on random days about random things (though I had so much stories to share). So, one day my sister and I were just talking and she told me to start blogging professionally. She said that I have so many stories that I can share on this platform to inspire and educate others. Then, I told her that I am ready to start blogging professionally. I wanted to create good content which can help and inspire others. And I also wanted to
\ reach out to as many people as I can. But, I had no clue about professional blogging. I didn't know how to design my blog and how to do social media settings on my blog. That's when my sisters came to my rescue. She has always been my first go to person whenever I got into any trouble. (by the way my sister is into online marketing and she is quite experienced in web designing as well).

Good Design & Good Content –That’s All You Need

So, we discussed about re-redesigning of my blog which was Diary Of A Mountain Girl. In
My sister bought a custom domain for me and did all the settings to link it to my previous blog. Then, she redesigned my blog by using free template and did my all social media settings. Then, we discussed about the future of my blog like; whats gonna be its niche niche and the kind of stuff I am going to share on my blog. (According to that we planed and arranged website's pages, other important info, navigation etc.)

All in all, she took over my blog completely and designed it so beautifully. Today, I can proudly say that my blog looks far better than it used to look earlier. It’s more organized and is quite easy to navigate. We both have created this space where I will be posting my travel stories and a bunch of other random as well as interesting stuff every week  or so.

Hope you will find this blog interesting enough to come here often :)

How to start a blog?

Even though, blogging is not everyone’s cup of tea but trusts me; if you love writing and sharing your content then you must do it.  All you will need is good content to start off with; someone to guide you on technical level and help you in SEO and all other stuff. My sister taught me all about these things. It's a work in progress for us as we are constantly making efforts to make our blogs better. So, just find your niche and ask someone to help you technically. Just put it out there if you think it's worth sharing. If you need any assistance in building your blog/ SEO/Designing etc you can contact my sister. She would be happy to help you out.
