Hello everyone! (such a great title huh) XD I was nominated by Buttercup and Gracie for the Blogger Recognition award and the Photography tag and today I thought it might be fun to do! Let’s get started!
Blogger Recognition Award
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their post.
- Write a post to show your award.
- Give a brief story of how your blog started.
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
- Select 5 other bloggers you want to give this award too.
How my blog started:
I actually had to start this blog for school. In November 2016 I learned how to set up a simple theme and set up a Gravatar. I was only required to write 1 blog post! Since then I have written over 100, and I want to thank each and every person who follows this blog, I hope it encourages them and inspires them!
Tips for new bloggers:
Hmm, well I’m definitely not a professional blogger or anything (I hope to be someday though) but here are a 2 tips or should I say lessons that I have learned:
I have to say that photography is a pretty important aspect of all this. I mean if you check out a blog and they have awful photos than you are pretty unlikely to follow. BUT REMEMBER, everyone has to start somewhere. My photos used to be (and maybe still are) not the greatest. And that’s OK. Just keep improving and learning. You will get there!
Probably my number one tip is to keep posting. If you post for 3 days in a row then don’t post for a month you likely won’t have many followers. Even one good quality post a week is good if that is what you can handle. Also keep on the lookout for typos’ and grammar errors, they make you look very unprofessional. XD
Overall I would have to say just keep posting and work on your photography. The followers WILL come, they did for me, and they will for you too! Also, commenting on other people’s blog will help to bring more traffic! Good luck!
The Photography Tag
What’s the best photo you have taken, so far of course?
This is one of my favorites! I love the bokeh and the outline!
What camera do you use?
I just started using a new Canon Rebel T6 and I love it! It takes wonderful photos and is simply amazing!
When did you start getting into photography?
Hmm, I have always love photography. I think it really started on my New York trip when I was 8, it was such a great opportunity, even though I didn’t have the greatest camera. After that I just kept photographing!
(here is a gallery of photos from my New York Trip)
Who are your photography inspirations?
Hmm, perhaps other bloggers or maybe our neighbor who often does our family photos!
Any photography tips?
Just keep trying and working! Save up for a new camera if you can! A dslr can really improve your photography!
Anyone who wants to be nominated! Just make sure you are following me and aren’t already nominated above 😉
I hope you enjoyed reading these tags! Look out for an exciting post next Monday!
