Hi all! So I haven’t written anything bloggy in a while and truthfully I am still on a blog break with it not being too long until my A levels.
However, I have a bit of spare time now as it’s the Easter holidays, and I thought I would jump on to have my say on the Blogger Recognition Award. If you’re not aware of what it is, it is an award set up by bloggers designed to help support one another in the community.
- Write a post about your award
- Thank whoever nominated you and include a link to their blog
- Give a brief story of how your blog began
- Share some advice for new bloggers
- Nominate 10 other bloggers and let them know
So to Lib and Keeley I have to say my thanks for you two nominating me! I really don’t have a very fixed approach to my blog and I would describe myself as a more ‘casual’ blogger. I am also a bit of a perfectionist – so I’ll only post something if I think it’s actually worth me writing and putting out there. Surprisingly though, my blogs clearly still getting some recognition from others and for that I can only say thank you! Be sure to check out both Keeley’s and Lib’s blog 🙂
So a brief story on how my blog began? Ahh, that’s so cringe and I’m not going to sit here and pretend there’s a deep and elaborate story behind it. I do enjoy writing, and of course photography, so I started up my blog in summer just as a past time. I promoted it on my Instagram and now I’ve got a nice little following going on. If you’ve come over from one of the other girls’ blogs then I’d love for you to follow if you like what you see!
As for advice, as I said, I’m not a hardcore blogger so I’m probably not the best for this. I think the reason I like my blog is because I only really post original content. I think it really shows when you’re writing something just to follow a crowd. Sometimes when I read blogs I feel like I am reading the same stuff over and over again. When you write, try to form your own opinion rather than simply reposting something that has been said a thousand times before. Also, you want your content to be a reflection of you- for example I am 18 so I make my posts and writing style a bit more mature.
You’re supposed to nominate ten people but I am actually super selective with the blogs I read. Also a couple of the people I asked told me they didn’t want to write one for their blog- so here’s just 3 people I nominate:
Going to curl back up into my cocoon of coursework and revision now, have a fab Easter and try to enjoy any time you’re lucky enough to have off! Be sure to take a look at the above bloggers. Click their name to be taken to their blogs.
