The blogger recognition award

The blogger recognition award

Alina from Alinasirbu nominated me to do the blogger recognition award and really could i refuse? 1, she’s lovely and 2 i didn’t have anything lined up for a Friday blog post, so no i couldn’t really.. So thank you to Alina, she remains one of my original faves.

Lets get to the rules shall we? 

  1. Thank the blogger 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 15 bloggers you want to give this award to.
  6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them, providing a link to the post you created.

So heres how my blog started:don’t think I’ve ever actually written about this on my blog before which seems strange; you would think it’d be a thing i had discussed at one point or another. I had always admired bloggers and youtubers prior to starting my blog, but i never imagined i’d ever be on the other side of the screen. I started my blog while i was on my gap year, i think i went about 2 weeks in full time employment and i suddenly had days off that were actual days off, as opposed to days off where you’d have to write 3 essays. I posted a selfie on twitter with a caption about makeup and it got 50 favourites (which was huge at the time for me) so i thought “why not?” and opened beautymattersbymaria.blogspot.co.uk.


2 pieces of advice for new bloggers? (Cheeky self promo here but i wrote a post all about how to grow your audience which contains a lot of advice for new bloggers which you can check out here.)


1)The first thing i’d say is to take blogging seriously but take it easy, sometimes i can get so stressed out with all of this that i end up surrounded by a load of blog props on the floor and a load of rubbish photos. When inspiration isn’t there don’t try to blog, don’t try and force it – otherwise you just won’t create good content. Ultimately this should be about doing something you enjoy, don’t get disheartened by a few days or a week where inspiration is lacking. 


2)The second thing is sign up to google analytics – just do it.
