I have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by My Pretty Little Life and I just can’t believe it. I am totally chuffed so thank you!!
I got into blogging about 9 months ago not really knowing what I was doing so I left it behind – I picked it back up again around 2-3 weeks ago and have been getting such great feedback and some followers along the way. I love that I can follow other bloggers stories as well. Each person is so different and we all have different views on life. I love to read blogs like mine and also blogs totally different from what I am writing. Through blogging even though its been a short time I felt it has given me freedom, all these words that used to rattle round in my head are now finally being put to good use. I always wanted somewhere to write stuff down – I’m not a fan of writing it down and not reading it again or no one seeing it as I think everyones adventure through life is important and interesting. One thing is for sure I really need to work on beautifying my blog page it looks pretty boring at the minute but its a work in progress.
Thank you My Pretty Little Life for your nomination and I look forward to the future with you all

Why I started blogging
I have always loved writing and reading. Although I never kept a journal I kinda wish I had from a young age. A place to show people all the words rattling about in my head waiting to get put down on ‘paper’. So I decided to start a blog. I love reading other peoples blogs and I thought maybe they would like to read mine. So one day I decided its what I am going to do. I am going to start a blog and let see how we go. I then left it behind as I said above – before I started I didn’t decide what I wanted to write about, what theme by blog would have and if I was going to concentrate on something in particular. So about a month ago I decided to research blogging and went from there. I chose that I would be a fashion, travel and lifestyle blogger. I know most girls choose beauty but its just not my thing. So I started again and here we are with a Blogger Recognition Award Nomination and I couldn’t be more chuffed. I love writing my posts, in myself I feel more relaxed now that I have started to blog properly and I am really enjoying it. I have so many future blog posts ideas I’m not totally sure how I am going to fit them in with all the new ideas that flood in each day. :p
Advice for new bloggers
- Don’t be afraid – write what you want when you want. Write for your audience but make sure that its true to you. If it gets 100 like then it gets 1oo if it gets none its none. Don’t fret about what people think there will always be someone out there willing to read it.
- Don’t feel like you have to write forever – if your post is only 1o lines long then so be it. I would say though don’t write too much that people end up bored. Not necessarily bored of the subject but just of reading such a long post.
