Daily Blogging for a Week

So if you have been following my blog, you'll know that I have been daily blogging for a week as of today.  If I have any advice for anybody - particularly writers - who are thinking about start a blog all I can say is do it.  It is really fun and I've started making connections with my audience who are engaged by my content.

Blogger provides insightful statistics on the traffic to my blog.  One of the more interesting pieces of information - for me anyway - is where my readers come from.   Below is the latest data of where my audience is reading my blog from, to think that the words of a small town guy like me from South Wales, UK is reaching parts of the world like India and Malaysia is a little mind blowing for me.

The main reason for me starting this blog was to help with the dedication of writing daily in preparation for Nanowrimo.  I found that the blog has actually helped quite a lot as I am thinking more creatively on a regular basis.  Just coming up with content has been helpful, thinking of interesting challenges, reading more so that I can write book reviews, revisiting my library of interesting words for my word of the day.  It as all been really helpful for my Nano Prep.

If you have just started a blog, post the link in the comments below, I'd love to follow them and see what journeys you are on.
