I’ve been writing articles and essays as a hobby for about 5 years, but started seriously blogging at Milk Bubbles about 3 months ago. I tend to run on about nursing, parenting, and marriage all while wrangling two precocious boys. I currently call Central Florida home, but would not mind moving somewhere that has more than one season!
When not tied to a keyboard or serving as a human jungle gym, I have an on-again, off-again relationship with my sewing machine and crochet hooks. On the rare occasion I have a 3- or 4-hour block of kid-free time you will probably find me curled up with my nose in a Sci-Fi or Fantasy novel.
Bloggers Face Rejection Too
If your article or guest post gets rejected, try not to take it personally. As much as your writing is a part of you, no one is saying no to you, they’re just saying no to the piece. There are hundreds of reasons why your piece might not work and none of them have to do with who you are as a person.
Take any comments you are given and apply them as much as you can without compromising what makes your writing special. Evaluate any critiques you get, burn the ones that aren’t helpful and incorporate those that are. Your work should evolve and grow through this process, but never lose that quality which makes your writing distinctly yours. Be yourself!
Keep trying and try everyone. Determination pays off!
