Blogger Recognition Award!

Blogger Recognition Award!

Hi it’s Carly, I hope you had great weekend. Today I have a blogger award! I was nominated for many awards recently and thank you so much! I was nominated twice for the blogger recognition first by Liv and then later on by Marble Beauty, so thank you so much💕

The Rules:

  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.

How My Blog Got Started:

I started my blog in April 2015, after watching 1,000 diy tutorials on YouTube. I was inspired by all of the amazing people on YouTube/WordPress. I thought that it was amazing how you could make a post and put it up on the internet to help/inspire others. I originally started my blog as just an art blog and did zentangle + mandala posts (btw I have a post like this coming on Friday 😉 I would post like honestly once a month or so… but in about September/October of 2016 was when I started making MUCH better quality posts and posting WAYYYYY more consistently.

Advice to New Bloggers:

1. Post Consistently But Not so Often the Quality Suffers

I definitely saw a HUGE difference in traffic my blog got when I posted more often but if those posts don’t have good quality photos, correct grammar etc. it definitely isn’t worth it. I would likely just end up deleting it later on because I wasn’t proud of it.

2. Don’t Make a Post Just Because the Topic is Popular

My other tip is to not just make a post that you don’t want to make or don’t enjoy making just because you think it’s popular or you think it will get more views, likes, comments etc.

Nominations:

  1. Jasper
  2. Kate
  3. SerendipiDIY
  4. Emily
  5. Ella

I hope you enjoyed this post, I had so much fun making it!
