The Blogger Recognition Award

Back in November, Lauren from Lala’s Book Reviews nominated me for the Blogger Recognition award! I’m incredibly honored that she thought to include me in this.

The Rules

  1. Thank the blogger/s who nominated you and provide a link to their 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 up to 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  6. Comment (or pingback) on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

In the beginning…

I’ve been a part of the book community on Twitter since 2014ish. I don’t entirely know how I started getting involved – but I did. That same year I also started bookstagramming. So many of the people I interacted with had blogs, but I had tried that a couple times already and it just wasn’t for me – so I stuck with Twitter and Instagram.

Fast forward to the end of February 2019 and something shifted – I suddenly felt this urgent need to start a blog. My husband immediately jumped on board in support and thanks to our tax return we instantly went to Best Buy and got me a super cheap Chromebook. And now, almost a year later, here we are!

If you’re new to blogging…

  • BE YOURSELF! One of my favorite things about blogging is how it gives everybody a space to let their voice be heard – and everybody’s voice is different. Don’t try to copy the people you think are most popular, we want to hear what you have to say!
  • POST WHENEVER YOU WANT! Don’t feel like there’s a requirement to post a certain amount of times per week/month/year. Post however much you want – it doesn’t matter if that’s every day, every other day, twice a week, or once a month.

I’m not tagging anybody in this one but I do want to know – what one piece of advice would you give somebody that is new to blogging? Let me know in the comments!
