The Story Of How Crystal’s Photo-Blogging Site Started

blogger-recognition-award-badge

CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE started about April 2017 after I had started my main site, WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) .

I started CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE mostly because I like to take pictures but I have reblogged a few posts, wrote a few posts and dabbled in writing some poetry.

Since I started meeting the blogging community, I’ve met some nice blogging friends.

Currently, I’m taking some blogging courses to help me out with blogging. Since starting blogging, I’ve found that I really enjoy myself and find it fun.

Since I haven’t been blogging long, my story is short. I’ve got a game camera and just love seeing what animals come to my backyard and sometimes post them.
