How my blog started…
I actually created my blog over a year ago but didn’t start posting anything on it until towards the end of last year.
I have followed bloggers and YouTubers for a long time now, my favourites being Zoella, Lily Pebbles, TheAnnaEdit and HelloOctober, and have always said to myself that I would love to do something like that and become a blogger myself and one day I just thought I’m going to start.
I am quite a creative person and I love photography so the thought of starting a blog has always excited me and I am so glad I did because I love it so much and have met so many like minded people in the process.
Advice to new bloggers…
I’m not sure I’m one to be giving advice as I am still a new blogger myself but it’s amazing what you can learn in a short period of time.
My first piece of advice would be to stay true to yourself and don’t compare yourself and your blog to others. There will always be things that you like about other blogs, whether that is their design or their photography style but as long as you stay true to yourself, then your passion and creativity will show in what you create.
My second piece of advice would be to talk to like minded bloggers and engage with them and what they create to share tips, ideas etc. Most people in the blogging community are so lovely and are always happy to chat so engage in Blogger chats on Twitter to talk to other bloggers with the similar opinions or ideas as you.
The 15 people I would love to nominate for this award are from #TheBloggingFriends group chat that was made to bring bloggers together and I have found so much inspiration from them all and they have helped me so much.
I hope you enjoyed this short post in the middle of the week.
Make sure to go and check out the blogs of everyone I nominated!
