Hey, world! It’s Lora.
This post will be a little bit different from my usual posts. That’s because I got nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by Sophie at Travel With A Bookworm which I’m so thankful for. ❤
Once you are nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award, if you wish to accept your nomination, you must follow these rules:
1.Generate a post about the award.
2.Thank the blogger who nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
3.Write a brief story about how your blog began.
4.Provide two pieces of advice to newbie bloggers.
5.Select 15 blogs to nominate.
6.Comment on each nominee’s blog and provide a link to the post that you created about the award.
How did I start my blog?
So, to be honest, my blog wasn’t really a blog at the beginning. I made it in 2013 as a website for the girls’ club which I was a part of at that time. In general, my publications back then were about the activities we did as a club. However, as time passed, our club fell apart and I was left alone with a website I didn’t know what to do with. I didn’t want to quit running it because I really enjoyed writing articles. That’s why I transformed it into my own blog – a place for my ramblings, thoughts and adventures. I can’t be happier about this decision because My Messy Blog has turned into something extremely special for me throughout the years.
My advice to newbie bloggers
• Don’t ever push yourself too hard to write posts, which you believe the others would like, when you yourself don’t enjoy them. Focus on YOUR thoughts, ideas and opinions because that’s YOUR blog, not anybody else’s. Write about the things which make your heart beat faster and stay true to yourself. The readers will notice that you do it with passion and will stay, believe me.
• Invest some time in creating the design of your blog. This is what the reader sees first, so you want it to look good.
