Who/What inspired you to start this blog?
Am not exactly sure. I didn’t know what exactly a blog was, until I saw someone suggesting another person create a blog. I searched the word up and then started posting my writings on Tumblr, Thoughts.com and settled at Blogger for 4-5 years. What you are seeing now is a WordPress platform.

Why did you choose the name Plain Jane, and what does it mean?
In the literary world, “Plain Jane” is a phrase, which refers to a girl with an average, or rather simple appearance. I chose this name as I wanted to associate my blog with a literary figure and also because it best describes me. At the time of starting out with this blog, I didn’t want to reveal my identity, and I still prefer keeping a low profile.

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging on 17th September, 2014, which makes it 7 years in total without the one-year hiatus!

How does one create a blog?
  • First choose a topic or theme on which you would be writing.
  • Select a platform, such as Tumblr, WordPress and Blogger. No one paid me to say this, but I would suggest you use Blogger as a newbie. It’s completely free and is good if you want to write long posts.
  • The next step is picking a title for your blog. Be innovative, be creative, be yourself.
  • Prepare around 5-10 posts beforehand. Publish them, share them on social media, and then ask people for promotion.
