My FIRST Blogger Recognition Award!

Hey Friends!

 I must say, it is pretty cool that I got nominated for this Blogger Recognition Award. I usually read other blogger' s responses to these, but I never guessed that I would be nominated for one.. Ever.
So with that i want to say thank you to Em from the blog Lyfwithem for nominating me. If you have not checked out her blog, well that's insanity! "Real" would be the word I would you use to describe her writing, because she is nothing but real with her thoughts and it shows on her blog.

Here we go!

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you & provide a link to her 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 other bloggers for this award

6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them.


Basically I started blogging in the beginning of last year like around August. I always loved writing journals & stories, so  I figured writing a blog filled with my thoughts and advice would be a great way to get my writing out there. Also inspiring and touching other young adults like myself. Also someday I would love to get my own book published so I feel blogging is a great start.. what do you think?


Two Pieces of Advice:

That's funny, I am still a new blogger myself but I guess for someone who may be struggling with their first few post I would say;

1. Write what you are Passionate about and know best. If you are not passionate about makeup you do not have to write about makeup.  Think about subjects that burns motivation inside of you, that you feel like others should read about and roll with it!

2. Read other blogs. I have noticed that while reading other blogs, not only am I getting ideas, but I am improving on my own writing as well. You start to observe different writing styles and it challenges you to improve on yours.


Nominate 15 bloggers.
Well I do not really know a lot of bloggers yet to nominate that many so I will pick 5.. is that cool with y'all? Cool! Here they are:

1. AshSlay
2. Jaycee
3. Tania
4. Becca Jayne
5. Iga Berry

 Thanks again Em for nominating me!

Hope you all enjoyed reading this! 😊
