Newbie Bloggers

We all love the big blogs, they have big numbers because they've proven themselves, put in the hard work and have great content!  But, let us not forget that there are some fantastic newbie bloggers out there.   My definition of newbie are those that have been blogging for less than 6 mos.  They are the bloggers that are still getting their feet wet, learning the ropes, and waiting for visitors to drop by.  All of you bloggers reading this know exactly what I'm talking about.

We put our heart into our writing and then put it out there in the hopes that someone will read our words, and even sweeter, that they will comment when they enjoy our words.  I try to find and visit a couple of newbie bloggers everyday.  I enjoy the fresh perspective that they bring to this arena and I hope all of you will do the same!

Here are a couple of wonderful newbie blogs that I have recently found.

Whitney at Cottage Keepings 
(Judging by her posts, I think she's offline right now with a new baby)

So, go now and forage for newbie bloggers in the blogasphere, out a couple of them and introduce yourself!!  

Why are you still here?

Get going man!

You're right! Those first comments when you've just started blogging can make your day. Every so often I come across a new blogger and I will leave a comment.

Thanks for choosing New blogs as your subject today. I too am new to blogging....been doing so a little over six months and finally getting the hang of it. We have a lot in common, as I have a retail gift/home decor store in the Atlanta area. We have been in business 7 years. I'll check out these new blogs that you have recommended. I hope that you will visit my blog and become one of my followers. Have a great weekend!

This is a really good topic. My favorite "newbie blogger" is Nancy on "Nancy's Notes"
She's an old friend of mine and a very talented and sweet one. If you want to check a newbie blogger, try Nancy's. You'll love it.

Those words of encouragement are so important to us newbies out there. I look at the big blogs and wonder how in the world mine will ever grow to that level. But then I remember that I'm not in it for the numbers, but rather the opportunity to write about my life, my family and my love for making my home a interesting and aesthetically appealing place to live.
