The blogging experience

The blogging experience

I started blogging seven months ago and I thought I should write some words about the blogging experience and share my thoughts with whoever might be concerned. Thoughts come out from my experiences. Blogging was and still is a very new world for me, such a big world and so many new things to learn, from technical things such as hosting companies, plug-ins, and SEO, to marketing and promotion. Overall, the blogging experience is fun but it can also be very tricky as well.

Copyright is something that everybody should take seriously. But many people don’t know that. And to be honest, some months ago, I also didn’t know that. When you hear of copyright, you might think: what’s the problem if I take a picture from another website? It is not that simple. Taking pictures that belong to others or copying text that someone else has written might get you into a problem and actions can be taken. I am not trying to warn you or to threaten you, don’t get me wrong. I am just trying to tell you to be careful with this stuff. I also visited once a lawyer who gave some very useful advices on what to do and what I shouldn’t do and also talked with photographers about copyright. For that reason, on my blog, which is like a photo journal, I use photos that were taken by me, or photos that other persons gives me with their written permission. I never use others’ photos without their permission.

To create a blog you need money and technical knowledge at the beginning. To keep up the blog and make it grow and grow you need a lot of time and creativity, and a big imagination in order to write entries that people would take the time to read and photos that people would fancy to look. Blogging is a job. It is like any other job that requires your effort and time. So, I find it reasonable that bloggers add advertisement to their blogs to make some money out of this.

The usual topics that bloggers write about are fashion, food, and travel. And I find that reasonable too. Would you imagine a girl writing about politics or football? I mean, if you feel like writing about football, you can do so. Nobody will forbid you from doing so, unless you do something that hurts or insult others. The topics of my blog are the same with so many other bloggers. By blogging the same topics we all run one risk. The risk of doing something that at the end might become boring and of no interest. The best we can do is, not to change topics of course, but to try to do it on our way, personal and unique.

The virtual world of The Viennese Girl has nothing to do with Silia’s world, my real world. This website gives me the chance to create a brand new world. A world that is more exciting, more charming and more interesting than my real world. A world without airplanes that are crashed on the air above the Ukrainian air zone, a world without wars and battles, a world without hunger and poverty. It’s all about creativity and imagination and whoever follows this blog shouldn’t confuse these two different worlds.♥

I have some plans that excite me for the future and the online world of the Viennese girl. But it takes time to realize them because simultaneously I have to carry out several other things in my private real life that need my time as well.

The conclusion is: You should never stop doing what you love and makes you happy, no matter what.

I never thought that The Viennese Girl blog would reach out such a prestigious news organisation like BBC NEWS, not even in my wildest dreams. My friend from London, Helen Soteriou, who works as a business reporter for BBC news wrote a very interesting article about Sacher Torte. I am very excited and feel honoured being a small part of it. Thank you Helen, I am looking forward to meeting you soon in Vienna.♥

Everybody in Vienna knows Naschmarkt. It is the most popular market in the city. It is a flea market where people show up to sell all kinds of goods; it has vegetable vendors, flower shops, oriental shops, Turkish people who try to convince you to taste their specialities, restaurants, and bars.

Don’t go on Sundays because you will find nobody there. On the contrary, if you go on Saturdays the market is at its peak. This time I had lunch at Nautilus, where I ordered a yummy pasta alle vongole, like in Italy! It is so nice having lunch with a good friend and watching people passing by at the same time. ♥
