Back To Basics Blogging

3 years ago

My name is Nichelle Stephens. When I first started blogging ten years ago, I was "Nichelle Newsletter".  Some people even thought that  "Newsletter" was my real last name.  My blog was personal. It was about the things I did, the things I like and the occasional rant.  Then I December of 2004, I started another blog about cupcakes and then in summer of 2005 I went to the first ever BlogHer conference. Since then I have started a personal finance blog, Keeping Nickels and a culture blog CoolBlkPpl

I started blogging so that I would write more. Then later, blogging became an source of income, a way to get press passes and invitations and sometimes free stuff.  Blogging has lead to many opportunities, but I don't actually write as much as I would like to.  I figure that I will go back to basics and write here on my BlogHer blog. Recently, Adam of Amateur Gourmet wrote a post about food blogging.  Adam wrote:

What I’m doing, in fact, is trying to recreate the feeling that my blog is a natural extension of myself, not a super polished beacon for my brand.

I am still blogging professionally on my web properties, but when I am not, I am going back to basics and will do so here on BlogHer. Hi everybody!
