Hey guys! Welcome back. I have some very exciting news to share with you. But first I wanted to thank you all for reading what I write and supporting me. I do this because I love it, but it’s so much more rewarding to know that people enjoy and appreciate it. I appreciate each one of you. And with that being said I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award! And that is so exciting. Almost as exciting as when I get a new follower. But anyway here it goes.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to share your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide a link to the post you created.

So first, thank you to lifeonplanetearth2017 for nominating me. I’m not sure how to add a link on here, but if you Google search it it is the very first thing that pops up (I tried it to be sure). I’m so glad that people are reading and loving my blog. He has an awesome blog as well and you should definitely check it out.

My blog started in 2016 actually. And up until May I hadn’t got back on here. But in June it really picked up and it’s doing really well now (thanks to all of you). I started this because I love writing and I wanted to share my thoughts and ideas. I had no idea that it would become anything. I know it probably doesn’t seem like much, but to me it is more than I could have ever asked for.

One piece of advice I would give to new bloggers is to be yourself. It’s hard starting out because you want to stand out and be noticed, but if you stay true to yourself people will notice that and they will keep coming back. My second piece of advice is to be consistent. It’s easy to get discouraged if no one is reading, but you have to keep going. Post at least twice a week and people will start noticing. No one wants to follow a blog that only posts once a month.

People I Nominate:

Sweet and Unholy; A Bit Better; Lidsandtricks; Life With Karla; thesecretblogofa30yearold; The Blogging Brunette; BeaFree; Bookmarks and Bronzer; A Bit Better; Love, Lauren Ellen; Effcaa; Sara in LaLaLand.

I apologize if you have already boon nominated for this award and this is redundant. I was going based on people I see all the time and blogs I read the most. Thank you so much for supporting and encouraging me!
