ALRIGHT, PLEASE HOLD WHILE I TAKE SOME TIME TO UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE WOULD NOMINATE ME.
Okay. It’s been 2 seconds. I still don’t understand.
Hey Guys! So
apparently, I was nominated for this amazing award by an even more amazing human being named Zara over at @SaRitzy! If by any chance you haven’t checked out her blog yet… what are you still doing here? GO check it out. please and thanks.
Alright, so I’m assuming you’re back from throughly looking at Zara’s blog and if you haven’t yet… well, I’ll give you a few minutes to go shower her with love.
Now that we’ve got our priorities straight, I guess we’ll just start with the award rules?
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and leave a link to their blog
- Write a post to show the award
- Give a little backstory on how your blog first started
- Share two pieces of advice you think new bloggers should know
- Nominate five other bloggers for the award and leave a comment on one of their posts to let them know, along with a link to your award post
How One Day an Idea Became a Full Born Baby
It all started… yeah, no. My life before blogging was subpar at best, which means that there is no interesting story about how this blog came to be. But there is a normal story that I’m willing to tell and it goes like this…
Girl gets bored out of her mind.
Girl picks up book about a blogger.
Girl wonders if she could ever create a baby of her own.
Girl suddenly finds herself pregnant and ready to deliver any second.
And a few hours later, Girl has given birth to A Beautiful Escape.
(previously known as “Life of a Teenage Ranter” before the baby had an identity crisis and changed it’s name).
and that’s precisely how the whole shebang went down.
Advice for Other Bloggers
Interact. Socialize. Mingle.
I personally think that this is something that everyone on the blogging community should always do. If you aren’t putting yourself out there, you cant expect people to find your little hidden corner of the internet. And please try to be sincere when you comment on another blog. Don’t just comment because you want more readers, but comment because you legitimately enjoy that blog’s content or that blog post. One thing that blogging has shown me is, that there can be people halfway across the world from you who’s loving the same books as you, or struggling with school like you are. And I just absolutely adore how supportive this community has continued to be one day after the other.
2. THE REAL YOU
The blogosphere is a 100% no bullshit area. Don’t try to pretend to be someone you’re not just to get more views. IT WILL NOT WORK OUT. I know it can be hard at first to find your voice and figure out where you want your blog to go but if you’re just faking it, you’re not going to be happy. Nobody wants to read carbon replicas of another blog. They want originality. And yes, again I know it’s not as easy as it sounds but all you have to do is start with you. What do you have to day? What do you like to do? What are your interests or hobbies?
Upon my return to the blogosphere, it was these five who made me feel most welcome and left a bit of an impression on me and basically what I’m trying to say is that I’M OBSESSED WITH THEM.
Emma is actually probably one of the funniest people on the face of the planet. and although she already did this award I just HAD to nominate her again because she god to honest, deserves nothing less.
Jana an actual angel. As mentioned in the advice section, I love when people comment and you get to have an actual deep and meaningful conversation. Jana makes me feel important and relevant and I cant thank her enough for that. x CHECK OUT HER BLOG.
Gracie a WOKE QUEEN. I appreciate Gracie so much, you have no idea. A lot of her blog posts always leave me thinking and completely shook. And she’s extremely supportive and sweet and kind and you need to go check out her blog at this instant.
Peachy appreciates great books and movies. There’s nothing more I could ask for in a blogger. Her reviews are absolutely fantastic and if you haven’t checked out her blog yet, what are you doing?
Kerri who has an aesthetically pleasing blog and is a bit of a beautiful mystery to me but I’m looking forward to reading more of what she has to say and write about!
And we’ve made it to the end. Thank you so much to all those who have supported this blog and who continue to support it. And thank you again to Zara for nominating my quirky blog for this award!
I hope you guys enjoyed and talk to you soon,
