Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day! As the year nears its end (EEEK!) I’m beginning to realize how many tag and award posts I have to catch up on, so today I’ll be sharing the Blogger Recognition Award. A big thank you to Marieke Mills for nominating me! I apologize for just getting around to doing it now!
Rule 1: Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Rule 2: Provide a link to the award creator. (Eve Estells)
Rule 3: Attach the award to your post.
Rule 4: Nominate fifteen other bloggers, excluding yourself and the person who nominated you.
Rule 5: Write a brief story of how you started your blog.
Rule 6: A piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
Rule 7: Comment on the blogs you have named here to let them know you have nominated them.
I started this particular blog in high school as a way to keep a record of my bookish thoughts. My main purpose for blogging was that I would be able to look back on the books I read and see what I thought of them in the past. I never expected that so many other people would actually read my blog as well!
I feel like whenever I’m asked to give blogging advice I always say the same thing: Blog for yourself, not for others. However, another piece of advice I have is to reach out. When I first started blogging I would certainly read other blogs, but I would rarely comment on them or interact with other bloggers on social media. I know that social media isn’t for everyone, but sometimes it’s nice to pop on over and join in the conversation. Not only will you undoubtedly gain new perspectives and have some fun, but you might even make some new friends!
Without further ado, here are fifteen bloggers that I would like to nominate:
- Ashley & Mariam @ Flying Through Fiction
- Hannah @ Mortal Reader
- Anne @ Inked Brownies
- Nino @ Enchanted Readers
- Aimee @ Lovely Book Loves
- Olivia @ Heir of Glitter
- Ashleigh @ A Frolic Through Fiction
- Beth @ Reading Every Night
- Shanti & Shar @ Virtually Read
- Ali @ The Bandar Blog
- Casey @ Adoptabookaus
- Reg @ She Latitude
- Heather @ Bits & Books
- Jenna @ Reading with Jenna
- Selah @ A Bibliophile’s Style
Thanks again to Marieke for nominating me!
What’s one piece of advice that you have for fellow bloggers? Also, what’s your favorite time of day to read? (Just curious!) Let me know in the comments section below!
