I have been hum-ing and ha-ing over posting this award nomination post since last November. I have wanted to post this as I am so grateful to Jen for nominating me but I also haven't wanted to post this as I am so aware that people may not like the reason why I have taken so long to post it.
The reason why it has taken me so long to even fill out the nomination form is because I have not nominated anyone to take part and it has been a great source of anxiety for me so instead I want to invite my readers to nominate someone they think should be nominated in the comments below and I will contact them to let them know.
Here is the post I had written before over-thinking got the best of me:
Here’s another sneaky catch up on a blogger nomination form! The wonderful Jen at BeautyLifeMom has nominated me (waaay, back in November) for the “Blogger Recognition Award” and this is me finally getting round to doing it. Thank you to Jen for said nomination! You can find Jen’s blog here.
The rules of this post are as follows:
Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Write a post to show your award.
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Select 15 other bloggers for this award
Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.
How My Blog Started:
I’ve mentioned this a few times as part of the requirements for other nomination forms but basically I started this blog about 7 years ago (nearly 8 now) and forgot about it. At the start of last year I remembered that I had this blog/name and decided to change hosts in April of 2017 as I wanted to be taken seriously with my posts about mental health and since then my passion for blogging has been refuelled. I started putting out more posts from the end of June and from there have watched my blog grow to all that it is right now. I’ve had several blog over the last 14 years but this one is by far my favourite.
Two Pieces of Advice for New Bloggers:
1. Write about what you know. If you are passionate about something (for me it’s sharing the mental health information that I have been provided with over the years as part of treatment sessions) then you will never be short of what to write about.
2. Interact with other bloggers/your followers (they don’t have to be of the same blog genre as you) and create your own network of blogger friends. Not only does it help you make new friends but you can also support each other – something that is really important to have. If your followers see you as a nice person they’re more likely to keep following you and will interact back.
