Blogger Recognition Award

Hi Lovelies

I want to say a huge thank you to  The Little Things for nominating me for this award, I’d seen it going around and was hoping that I’d get the chance to do one, so thank you so much again 😀

here are the ‘rules’:

  • 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 bloggers for this award
  •  Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created

My Blog’s Story:

My blog started out as an idea months before I actually set it up, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to write about travelling or my personal life, so I held off on it for ages. Finally, late one April night, To The Moon And The Stars was born 🙂 At first I really wasn’t sure what I was doing, but I keept pushing on and writing the things I wanted to write about and also I hoped  I would help others as well. I went to a class run by ITWBN for people wanting to learn about how better to use WordPress and get a greater understanding of blogging. I honestly gained so much knowledge and made a few friends along the way and I feel courses like it would really help any new blogger 🙂 It wasn’t until about June that I realised that my blog was beginning to pick up a few more likes and followers and that it really began to sink into my head that people were enjoying me just being me 😀 And here I am 9 months in, still flying and loving what I do 😀

My Advice for New Bloggers

Firstly: Have a passion for it! If you don’t enjoy writing and connecting with your followers then after a while it will become such a chore for you and you will end up hating it! Make sure that no matter what you write about you don’t lose your passion. Not everyone is going to like what you write about, but people will feel the passion and will be more inclined to keep reading 🙂

Secondly: Don’t be afraid to fail. Not every post you write will be a hit, sometimes a few in a row will fail, but it’s how you handle and deal with that failure that will stand to you. Try not to be discouraged and remember, it happens to the best of us 🙂

My Nominations

I feel this award really is for everyone, so if you’re reading this today and you have a blog, I welcome you to accept this award 🙂 Every blog needs some recognition no matter how big or small 😀

All The Best!!

CJ 🙂

    That’s so cool that you were able to attend a class that focused on blogging let alone wordpress! How did you come about this class?
