I was nominated for this award on the 29th of August so it was about time I actually wrote the post! A massive thank you to Kyles for the nomination! You can check her blog out here!
So let’s do it! The rules are pretty simple and they are as follows:
1. Thank the blogger that nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
2. Write a post to show you were nominated and share your award.
3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
4. Give 2 pieces of advice to new bloggers.
5. Select 15 other bloggers that you would like to give this award to.
6. Let them know they have been nominated, and provide the link to the post that you created.
So how did my blog start?
I can’t quite remember how the blog initially started but I can tell you how I got to this point. I have only recently started blogging with the goal of making something of it. I was let go from a job selling garage doors. It made me realise that working in jobs that make me utterly miserable isn’t what I want to do anymore I want to do something that makes me happy. And that is how we got here with a logo and sparkly new website!
Now for the advice bit!
First thing I would say is, don’t change yourself in order to appease your readers. Be your self and write about what you want to write about. If people don’t want to read it, it is their loss!!! The second bit of advice would be that a blog isn’t a way to earn money. Don’t do it if you don’t enjoy writing, earning a living from blogging isn’t easy (i haven’t earned any money yet) and you will find no enjoyment in it what so ever!
