I came home from work today to find a wonderful surprise. Ruth from Ruth Elizabeth had nominated me for the Blogger Appreciation Award, and Jess from Obsessed About Beauty and Fashion had nominated me for my second Versatile Blogger Award. I was very touched by both nominations and so excited that there are people out there enjoying my blog. Please make sure you check out both of their blogs.
Now, because I did the post for my first Versatile Blogger Award only a couple of days ago, I will save you all from having to read it again, so I dedicate this post to both.
- Thank the person who gave you the award by linking their blog in your post.
- Answer the following four questions.
- Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to new followers/fellow bloggers.
- Let the blogger know you have awarded them.
Here are the questions!
1) How long have you been blogging?
One week and one day. That's all! Which is why being nominated for these is so surprising.
2) What are the 1-2 reasons you started blogging?
There are a few reasons why I started blogging. Firstly, I spent so much of my time using, buying and researching beauty products, and I wanted to do something useful with the knowledge I've gained. The second is that I wanted to learn more. I love learning, especially when it comes to beauty, and this blog gives me the chance and motivation to learn so much more. Finally, I wanted an outlet to write. I love to write, and even though I do a bit of writing in the job I am in, it was becoming very structured and monotonous, and no longer satisfied my need to write anymore.
3) What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
I love beauty, fashion and food blogs. I like to find blogs that have the right balance between information and random waffle, and that teach me things I didn't know.
4) What one thing would you like to improve on as a blogger / on your blog?
I feel like, being so new, there are so many things I need to improve on in both areas. I think that I'm still working on finding my tone and voice as a blogger, which comes with time, and I would really like to find that happy medium where my readers are both entertained and informed. When it comes to my blog, I will be working on improving my layout and honing into what my blog will consist of over the next few months, so watch this space.
Thanks again to the lovely ladies who nominated me, and to everyone reading and commenting on my blog. I now nominate just some of the blogs that I am adoring, in no particular order:
