Blogging 101 | An Introduction and Ask the Blogger

July 21, 2016 Rissi JC 6 Comments

I’ve had an idea bubbling for a while now. The problem was I
hadn’t sat down to put words to paper sharing said idea. My idea isn’t so much
inventive as it is an event that will hopefully offer interested readers a
chance to ask some questions, and my fellow blogging friends a chance to offer
their expertise (and more importantly to me) while also allowing me to
advertise their amazing creativeness. This leads us straight into the topic. 


Are you a new blogger? Are you considering blogging? Have
you been away from blogging for an extended hiatus? What would you like to know
or learn more about? I want to hear from you
about blogging. Do you have any specific questions, thoughts or have you been
looking for a how-to guide on something? 

Please, don’t be shy! Let us know.  

Is there a blogger you’d like to see featured or introduced
to the world? You can share that too! Maybe they can be featured in our “Meet the Blogger” series.
Along with myself, I’ve asked some bloggers to join this series, which will hopefully allow for varying opinions (perspectives new to this blog), thoughts and tips on the blogger life.

Below I’ve created a form where you can comment and share
anything you’d like to know about. The purpose of this is twofold. One being to
open the conversation to those of you who might be curious about the
behind-the-scenes helpful-hints-and-tips for would-be bloggers. The second because I would love to try and fill in some gaps if there’s anything you’re looking to see more of or learn about in this blogging world. It’s because of you, the readers that Finding Wonderland is still in existence, and I’m grateful you continue to return.

The form will
ask for your name/email, but this will only be used in the event we need to
clarify what you’d like us to write about.



As written about above, I’d like to open some sort of series
that allows Finding Wonderland to collaborate with some of the bloggers I’ve
met through this journey. One way that can happen is by gathering our
collective advice and tips which we’ve learned through the (painful) exercise of “trial and error” in this thing called blogging.   

Some of you have already been contacted and are willing to
join this series. To you, I say thank you.
I’m anxious to see the interest/response, and hopefully the result will allow me to showcase your talents through this series. 

In short, this is an introduction/exploratory post. I’d love
feedback, to see bloggers/readers share their ideas/pitch their article requests
(below or in the form) and as a fellow blogger, if you have any thoughts,
please don’t hesitate to share them. I’m looking forward to reading your

Thank you for visiting

    SO excited for this series! I've been thinking about taking my blog to the next level but haven't made a plan yet for where to start…

    • Rissi July 26, 2016 at 11:47 pm

      Thanks SO much, Heidi. I'm excited about putting it together. I was writing like crazy last night, so posts ARE coming. I need to smooth out their rough edges but am hopeful one will be published tomorrow. :)

    Yay! This is going to be awesome!

    • Rissi July 26, 2016 at 11:48 pm

      I sure hope so, Courtney. We've gotten a couple responses so now it's just a matter of getting that writing done; I was writing like crazy last night, so here goes… well, hopefully something good. :)

    Great idea for a series, Rissi! I'm still a newbie so I'll be browsing through for sure!
