One year ago I started my blogging adventure. I have changed a lot since then, I started with screenshots only and then when May came, Jaedia told me to sign up for the Newbie Blogger Initiative. I took a few days before I actually did, I was scared to join anything involved with actual bloggers. I was scared of getting mocked about my blog and writing, but in the end I took the step and joined. And yes that was the best idea ever, really. Without it I would not have been blogging today.
What is The Newbie Blogger initiative ?
Well most of you who visit knows what this is, but I do have a few readers that don’t actually blog, but maybe you would like to start. This is the time to do it.
Newbie Blogger Initiative is a grassroots community effort to support gamers who want to blog, vlog, stream, and podcast their passion for video games. The NBI was founded by Justin Olivetti of Massively in 2012, and it’s been carried on by the community an annual event.
The purpose of NBI is pretty basic.
Promote aspiring game bloggers.
Establish a friendly support network to nurture those bloggers.
Create an on-going community for bloggers that’s available 24/7/365
