I would happily collaborate, or guest post, on someone’s blog who had 1 follower.
One of the things I’m relatively okay with about myself is the fact that I WANT to help people. GOD, that sounds horrible; it seems like I’m saying “PFTTTT you TOTALLY need my help you puny mortal blogger, HA!”
I’m not. If it comes across that way, you can call me a bitch; I’M SORRY! All I want to say is that I am completely willing, and HAPPY, to, um…
Okay okay this is getting awkward. So like I have a few followers and stuff… And NO if anyone says the word Quaen I will scream. And… OH CRAP I’m being arrogant again let’s start this over…
I am possibly the worst person ever at admitting that I’ve been successful, or that I’m good at, something. But I’m both, in a way, when it comes to blogging. There. Arrogant part over and done with, for the most part.
The point is: if you don’t have many followers – by that I mean below 50, or below 100 – or you’re new to blogging, I want to help you in any way I can. Also, I’d LOVE to guest post on your blog or have you posting on mine because that’d be amazing and it would make my week. I know what it’s like to be new to blogging and just think, “CRAP, how do I even talk to anyone and what is this CRAAAAHP.”
As well as this, I think it’s lovely to find a new blog, and get new comments from people on yours. Whenever I receive a lovely word from someone, it makes me grin whilst reading, and I know that when I started getting 1 comment on a post, it made me unbelievably happy. (It still does).
I’ll be focusing on anyone who wants to guest pos, who’s new or relatively new, probably more than I create actual posts. GCSEs are starting soon, so I need to make time for them, yet I’ll always have this blog open to you guys.
So, if you’re thinking, “SHUT up Elm no one likes you; you’re acting like a TOTAL arsehole,” you’d probably be right. Um, I mean, SHUSH I’m a nice person? But if you’re thinking, “I honestly don’t know what I’m doing with blogging, and I want my words to be read,” hit me up.
Er, I mean, contact me. You can do that by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting my contact page.
At the end of the day, follower count doesn’t matter. What means the world to me, and probably for you too, is to have your words read and for people to get meaning out of them. It gives you a chance to get your voice out there, anonymously or otherwise, and to make people smile, laugh and think.
You all deserve to have that; everyone does. When you start, blogging is sometimes terrifying and you don’t know what to do with yourself. If you want advice, you can always ask me, or talk to another blogger (everybody is so nice, like you wouldn’t believe).
From Elm 🙂
