HOW MY BLOG STARTED:

For years my friends had said, you should share what you do. And so in September 2012 'Mia Bella Passions' began.  (That name means My Beautiful Passions.)    
As a complete blogging rookie, I learned about website design, posts, publishing, html, widgets, and buttons.  I crashed my blog site twice, then learnt how to bring it back. I battled a few scammers, and a few weirdos who thought just because 'Passions' was in my blog title that it meant 'something else'!  
I picked up a camera, and found a new passion to add to the list of things I love. That grew into inspirational photo quotes. Then after a very long absence, resumed my art, and restarted the 'Art Studio'.   
With all the positivity and love from all my wonderful 'Mia Bella Passions' followers, both here in New Zealand, and worldwide, I have grown and evolved, as a person, an artist and a blogger. I have met some amazing people along the way.
It has been a wonderful journey thus far, and I am thankful I am able to share beautiful things, creativity, and inspire others in the process.


MY ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS:

My first advice is:
Never doubt yourself and never compare what you do with others.  Look, get ideas, and then make it your own without copying....and that leads to....remember the copyright laws!
My second advice is:
Re-assess EVERYTHING at least 6 monthly.  What you did then - may not be what you want to do now.  Change it up...let it grow...let it be uniquely YOU!
