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?
- Thank the blogger 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 bloggers you want to give this award to.
- 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: I 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.
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.
