Blogger Recognition Award #7 & 8

blogger-recognition-award-logoThank you so much Daisy from Life as Daisy and Jackie from Makeup and Beyond for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award!

The Rules

  •  Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  •  Write a post to show your award
  •  Give a brief story of how your blog started
  •  Give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers
  •  Select 15 other blogs you want to receive the award
  • Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created

How My Blog Started 

When I was in college, my friend had a blog on tumblr and I decided it would be fun to join her. I created two blogs, a personal blog of cute things I liked and a review blog. At first I loved tumblr, but then I started losing interest in blogging because I did not feel like I was part of the community (mainly because on tumblr you cannot comment on posts, and instead you can like or reblog posts. If you wanted to talk to someone, you had to message them). In May of last year, I deleted both my tumblr blogs and decided to create this blog on WordPress. Since then I have received tons of support from the community here and I enjoy blogging again.

Advice to New Bloggers

Be true to yourself. Post what you like even if it means not fitting into the norm. Post your stories, reviews, pictures, recipes, advice, thoughts, etc. as long as it is what you want. If you only post what you think others will like and not what you like, you can lose motivation and interest in blogging and the quality of your posts will decrease.

Be consistent in posting. It is not necessary to blog everyday especially if you have a busy life with school, work, family, friends, etc., but it is good to try to stick to schedule of posting depending on what you find manageable whether it is once, twice, or more a week.

Be active in the community. Like and comment on posts you like, follow bloggers you like on WordPress and other social media sites, and reply to comments on your blog to keep the conversation going. I have met many great bloggers by being active in the community and you can too!
