Blogger Recognition Award

17:16


Charlie from Diary of an Unschooling Teenager nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Thank you!

Rules:

Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Dig if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the blogger who nominated you.

Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog go started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you've nominated in the post. Make sure to also attach the award itself!

Comment on each blog and let them know you've nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.

Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing.

Story:
I started my blog in March 2011, soon after my mum and older sister, Charlotte, started their blogs. I didn't actually know what blogging was, I just wanted to copy Charlotte. (I'm a terrible copycat.)

I'd always liked writing. Blogging is now one of my favourite things to do. I'm very glad I started this blog.

Advice:
Make you posts as attractive as possible. Check your spelling and paragraphs before you publish your posts.

Images also make posts look much nicer. If you don't like taking your own photos, there are plenty of places you can find images online.

Morguefile is a completely free image site. You can download their photos and you don't even have to attribute them.

Another place you can get your photos from is CC search. With CC search you have to leave an attribute to credit the people who own the photos. But that's easy enough to do. Here is a link to how to write an attribute: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/03/26/source-and-attribute/

I Nominate (I don't have fifteen):
Eve from Eve of Womanhood
Morning from The Ups and Downs of my Not-So-Average Life
Julia from Writing for His Glory

I made a video a while ago with my other blogging tips in it, if you'd like to take a look!
