Vogue Parody Blogger Recognition

Last week, I was so nicely nominated by a few people for a few things.

First of all, Becky from Strikeout & Sprinkles nominated me for a blogger recognition award. And then Suzi from My Colourful Life hit me up for a Vogue Party!

Now, because my life is basically “wake up, work, home, sleep, repeat” I haven’t had the time to do either of these lovely ladies’ awards so I’m going to do both right now.

For Becky, she asks to give a short history of my blog and two pieces of advice for bloggers.

Well my blog started almost four years ago while I was trying to figure out my life. I was going through some transitions and I needed a safe, private place to vent and sort my thoughts. And then I started to take blogging courses and it has grown from there.

Two pieces of advice for new bloggers: 1) interact with other bloggers. Like other posts, leave comments, let people know that you are there. They will usually reciprocate the effort. 2) don’t ignore those who interact with your blog. So many times I have left a comment on someone’s blog and I just never get a like or a comment back and sure that happens sometimes, but if a person is taking time out of their schedule to interact with your blog, out of the millions of other blogs that are there, at least acknowledge that you have seen that effort. If I comment on someone’s blog more than once (usually like 3-5 is my limit) and I get no “they liked your comment” or a reply, I’ll just stop and unfollow the blog.

Suzi’s is a little more complicated. Her Vogue Party asks 73 questions about the blogger. I’m super exhausted right now so I’m not sure how much of an effort I’ll take to answering all of them, but we’ll try!
