Today I am doing the Blogger Recognition Award! I was so kindly nominated by the lovely Milenka, she has such a lovely blog! She writes brilliant posts from outfits of the day, to travel posts! So thank you very much for nominating me, I’ve linked her blog here.

 

The Rules

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

 

How My Blog Started.

I began my blog properly in September, so I have been blogging for about 5 months now! I started writing as I am at home a lot at the moment because I have been helping a family member whilst also doing my part time job. I found that blogging is such a lovely escapism that I really love. I don’t really know what I’d like to do as a career yet, and I am awful at desicion making! But my blog has given me a new focus that I enjoy so much, and I have written daily (apart from when I was poorly!) since September, which I am really proud.

 

Advice For New Bloggers.

I think my two main tips would be:

  • Have fun! I think when you first start out with a blog, it is best to just play around and have fun to find your personal blogging style. I tried different styles of blog photos, different topics etc. I think it is easy to feel as if you need to go straight into super organised blog schedules – but at the beginning, I think it is much more fun to just enjoy your blog and find your way, that way it will never feel like a chore.

 

  • Read other blogs! I find this is a lovely way to meet other bloggers, be inspired and get advice and tips. Everyone gets writers block sometimes, so it is a lovely idea to get reading, plus lots of bloggers share their tips so you can often find help there when you are first starting out. Plus you will start to make friends that way too, as this really is a lovely community to be part of.

    First of all, your new blog design looks FAB! I love it ☺️ And thank you so much for your kind words about my blog ☺️ I definitely agree with you, blogging is a really nice escape from everyday life and it’s such a productive thing to do in the spare time you have. There are tons of posts about how blogging helped bloggers find their career! It’s just really motivating and we’re learning so many skills through it! I also agree with your tips – it should be fun and something that you look forward to doing rather than worrying and stressing over! And reading other blogs is super inspirational and encouraging ☺️ Loved reading this! xxxxx

      Aw thank you so much, that’s made my day☺️ you are more than welcome lovely! Yeah I have found I am making as much time as I can to blog, a hobby I didn’t realise I would love! Yeah I think it would be easy to worry too much about numbers or how many posts you can do, but having fun means you enjoy it ☺️ thank you so much! Xxxxx

    Aw I started writing in my blog in September too! Crazy that it’s already been 5 months! Can’t wait till we make it a year! I love your reasoning for blogging; I feel very much the same way. It’s a great way to have “me, myself, and I” time! Thank you so much for the tag- you’re the sweetest!!!
