The Blogger Recognition Award

Okay this is really exciting and surprising and I’m gonna try not to be too gushy, but I got nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award by the amazing Elsie L.M.C.!  She’s absolutely amazing and a wannabe author like me.  You should definitely check out her blog if you haven’t already.

The Rules

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog. (Done)
  2. Write a post to show your award. (Doing)
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

How Did My Blog Start?

I started my blog 3 and a half weeks ago on the 23rd December 2016.  I kind of explained this all in the first post I did.  Essentially, during 2016 I felt really lost and decided I needed to get back to being passionate about something.  My passion has always been writing, so I decided to blog seriously this time.  I used to have a blog,  but it was a lot more personal and anonymous and I never really shared it.  It’s already made me happier and more confident so that’s been great.

Advice for New Bloggers…

It’s weird giving advice to new bloggers because I still consider myself a “new blogger”.  I’ve only been doing this for 3 weeks!  I guess I’d say that:

1) Social media is great for getting involved.

I’ve made so many blogging friends through Twitter and have learnt so much about blogging from so many people.  With my old blogs I never tried with social media, and had no idea that there was this whole community of bloggers online.  I feel far more connected now.

2) Write regularly

I’m trying to post at least twice a week, but I’m hopefully going to post more than that.  The more you post, the more you get out there and the more people read and get a sense for who you are.

I nominate…

15 blogs that I think deserve recognition are:

  1. Jasmine from JazzyBlogs
  2. Anthea from The Bold and the Bitchy
  3. Em from LyfwithEm
  4. Alicia from AliciaParry
  5. Suzie from SuzieSpeaks
  6. Lozzy from ShortSharkShop
  7. Alice from BeautyWithAlice
  8. Emily from TheCornerOffice

  10. Samantha from ColourMineBeauty
  11. Leigh-Ann and Carys from Beauteagenes
  12. Victoria from VixieBeauty
  13. Rebecca from StaticNova
  14. James from CreateYourOwnStory

Everyone I nominated is fantastic, so give them a little read!

Lots of love,

Jas xx
