Hello sweet peas!
So a while back I was nominated by Nira, Aqsa, Anju, Rosame and Rosinalee (I potentially missed someone, so if I did apologies!! Do let me know in the comments haha) to do the Blogger Recognition award, and because I am super organised here it is! 😉 Thank you so much for nominating me, and for having so much patience with me haha! 🙂
So, here we go!
- Write a post to show your award
- Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you
- Give a brief story about why you started blogging
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
- Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award
Well, for about six months I’d been hearing about blogging, bloggers, and blogs, but I didn’t really know any. after reading Girl Online, I decided to give it a shot. So, on July 16th I created Lui Maria blog, wrote a post, and left it for a month. Dedication, right? 😉 then, one day I was on Zoella’s blog and I saw this really sweet comment by Courtzbella, so I thought I would check out her blog. Somehow my computer logged me into my blog, and so I discovered I could follow her blog. I left a comment, and before I knew it I had my first follower! 😀
It’s only gone up hill from there! Despite my initial anxiety about blogging, I found it to be really fun, and that the community of bloggers I had found myself in was really inspiring, positive, and encouraging! 😀
- My advice is to be as social as possible! Honestly just talk to people, because chances are, they are going to be really lovely, and want to chat! 🙂 This is the best way to build a strong community on your blog. Remember, quality over quantity! 😉
- My other piece of advice to just write about what you want to write about. If you feel like doing an award, do one. If you want to do a positivity post, do it! A make up post, go for it!
- The wonderful Anju! <3
- Beachy Girl Monique
- Splash of Happiness
- The Stylish Dreamer
- Jo Smith
- xo Jenny
I hope you all have fun doing this, because I certainly did (when I got there! Again, sorry!) 😉 And sorry to those of you I missed out… Two months ago I probably struggled to find 15 bloggers but now I am spoilt for choice haha 😀
Until next time
