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!

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!

Yours,

HOLLY

  1. I still dislike reading on a screen so it’s hard to remember to do it. I mostly remember when I post my blog posts and read at that time which is about 11AM IST. Or before I go to bed. Congrats on the award! You deserve it.

    1. Thanks so much! 🙂 I dislike reading on a screen as well, but it’s so tough to avoid these days. I read before I go to bed, too– there’s something about the routine of it that calms me down before going to sleep.

  2. Congratulations on the award Holly, I have already done this one but thank you so so much for the nomination and thinking of my blog for this one.
    I loved reading about how you started your blog, and honestly it’s great advice for anyone starting out as well. I do think the most important part of the whole blogging experience is interaction with other people on here.
    Thanks again for the nomination! 😀
