Aspiringwriter22 Officially On Facebook! Coming To Twitter Soon!

I started this blog a few months ago (near the beginning of April to be exact), with no marketing, no social media, and absolutely no advertising help from anyone, anywhere. Looking back, this blog you are reading right now was created solely for fun. For me, blogging was an endeavour I always wanted to try out but I did not realize how much I would come to fall in love with it.

Writing is a huge part of my life along with blogging. Until now, my blog was a part of my life I kept hidden from practically everybody, almost like a dirty, little secret.

However, I realize the importance of social media and having multiple platforms to reach various audiences. So with that I decided, on a limb, to create a Facebook page about my blog today. Moments ago, I set up a Facebook account for my blog since I knew this summer I would have more time on my hands but also because I would like to promote my blog further.

My biggest hope is for people like me (i.e. writers and bloggers) to be a part of a community. Aspiringwriter22 is a place where I want to reach out to like-minded people, writers, and bloggers.

As I continue on this journey, one that I invite you to join in with me, I wish for us to learn more from each other in a friendly, mutual relationship.

I will be posting updates regularly with information pertaining to writing, blogging, editing, publishing, etc., on Facebook. I kindly ask that you check out my Facebook page (Aspiringwriter22) if you have enjoyed this blog so far, as the content I publish on this blog will be similar to what I write about on Facebook. I look forward to seeing you there.

On a final note, I will be creating a Twitter account later on in July. But for now here is the link to my Facebook page:

What Every Writer Ought To Do Over The Summer

Summer is almost here! I can’t believe time has passed by so quickly. I am definitely looking forward to being more productive this summer by writing, reading, dancing, and blogging more. Exams (for me) start next week but I have already started to plan out what I am going to do after exams.

So without further ado, I will generalize my plans to suit the title of what writers should try to do or at least think about doing during the summer months. When summer comes, you won’t be bored.

  1. Start a blog if you haven’t already
  2. If you do have a blog, continue maintaining it by posting frequently
  3. Start a Twitter account if you haven’t already or continue making a prescence for yourself online
  4. Organize your gigantic collection of books
  5. Submit work to online contests/competitions and everywhere possible because you never know what may come out of it
  6. Clean your work space up to declutter your mind
  7. Write a novel or two
  8. Learn a new skill you always wanted to learn, whatever that may be
  9. Take some time and reward yourself doing whatever makes you happy (e.g. yoga, knitting, cooking)
  10. Practice your craft, hone your skills, and sharpen your pencils
  11. Keep a journal or diary for the entire summer
  12. Make mistakes and learn from them
  13. Catch up on some sleep for all the nights you stayed up late to meet a deadline
  14. Try to believe in yourself, in your voice, in your work, and in everything that you do
  15. Read, read, read!
