The Blogger Recognition Award


Wow, so 2018 has been great for my little blog so far - 2 nominations for blogging rewards and it's only the 16th January, I'm feeling very blessed! I honestly never expected to get any recognition from other bloggers, let alone have as many people keeping up with me as there are but I'm so overjoyed that you guys are enjoying my posts. I'm no pro, my life isn't as glamorous as a lot of other bloggers and I'm not the best at photography, but to know that you wonderful people of the internet are acknowledging the hard work that it takes to maintain a blog, no matter how big or small, is heartwarming and I'm super grateful. The blogging community has been exceptionally kind to me and despite only having this little space on the internet for just over 6 months, I'm positive this year is going to bring great things so watch this space! ✯

I want to express how thankful I am to Lena over at https://lenadeexo.com for nominating me for this, we've only just discovered one another but I absolutely love her blog; from lifestyle to beauty to recipes, she has something for everyone and I'm excited to support her throughout her blogging journey as she has done mine in such a short time. So thank you, Lena. You're an absolute sweetheart. ♡ 

What is the Blogger Recognition Award?
The Blogger Recognition Award is an award given to bloggers by other bloggers for all their love and hard work they put into their blogs. It motivates bloggers and helps them to connect to many new readers as well as provides valuable advice from others. The recipient must then share their blogging background and two pieces of advice for those starting to blog, and nominates other bloggers. It is the most awarded in the blogging industry and is a community effort that is fantastic to participate and encourage others to take part in, although if you chose not to, that's totally fine too! :)
What is my blog about and why did I start writing?
My blog is a personal lifestyle blog that focuses on everything from beauty, books and disney to motherhood and advice I have learnt from and want to share. I started writing whilst I was pregnant as a way to keep me sane during those challenging months of my last trimester. I've always enjoyed writing and found myself in a position where I had a lot of spare time on my hands and a lot of creativity floating around in my mind so I went out on a whim and created my first blog, not expecting anyone to ever come across it, let alone enjoy it, but here we are!

Advice for new bloggers
Don't be afraid to be yourself
So many blogs are the same these days; featuring the same beauty products and the same  flatlays and the same reviews (just worded slightly differently) and it can be hard not to fall into that hole of doing what other people are doing because it's working for them. The best piece of advice I've ever received is as cliche as be yourself. Write about what you are passionate about, period. Whether it's along the same lines as other bloggers or something completely random and mostly unknown to others, go for it. Don't be afraid of what other people will think of your uniqueness. It's your blog and at the end of the day, as much as you want other people to enjoy it, your blog is yours and you need to love it more than anyone else.
Connect with other bloggers on social media
Honestly, the blogging community is so unbelievably helpful and welcoming if you put the effort in on sites like twitter, instagram and pinterest. Finding other bloggers to connect with is a great way to not only make new friends but help one another by sharing inspiration and giving credit where credit is due. Twitter has an incredible community of people who support and offer advice to bloggers and it's definitely worth investing some of your time into making these connections to get yourself noticed and help like-minded people on their blogging journey too.
