How I Became a Blogger

Hey TGs!

Two awesome readers, Lauren and Georgia have both asked me the same thing: how did I get started in blogging?

I guess it's a long story, but basically I have always loooved writing and have kept a diary for nearly my whole life (well, since I could write and draw).

I've always been a huge Total Girl fan, and one day I noticed a call out for writers to send in their thoughts to the mag. I was sooo excited!

I spent ages writing a piece about my family and Cotton. Mum checked it and said it was good, so I emailed it to OMTG I have never been so nervous!

A few weeks later I had an email waiting for me when I got home from school - TG's amazing Editor Amanda liked what I had written and wanted me to write a regular blog for Total Girl! Squee!

I ran around the house SCREAMING my head off (poor Cotton was so confused). I was so excited!

I've been blogging for TG for ages now, and I still love it just as much as I did at the beginning.

I guess my advice for anyone wanting to be a writer would be: write all the time, you've gotta be in it to win it, and always have someone check your work!

I hope that answers your questions!
