Blogger Recognition Award

Thank you so much to tatterhood for this nomination! She is an awesome writer with multiple posts on so many interesting topics including books, music and lifestyle posts!

The Rules:
  • Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award.  Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.
How I Started Blogging

Well I had always loved writing and new that I wanted to write and one of my friends started a blog so I thought I would too because that would be the perfect way to start out and get better at writing as well as build an audience for my work.

Advice For New Bloggers
  1. Don’t give up- I know it’s slow when you start out and it’s hard to get views/likes/follows but if you put effort into it and keep posting regularly and stay active it will be worth it and your blog will grow.
  2. I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers these days, especially new ones, leave their links on the comments sections of other peoples posts- trust me you don’t want to do this. It’s super annoying and instead of giving you more traffic people are going to get pissed off and avoid you on purpose. Instead look for blogs that have a share and promote page and leave your link there.

I think it depends on what type of politics and what country. I think we need some for of politics to keep a country running but the problems arise when politicians go back on their word and don’t do what’s best for the nation but rather what’s best for themselves or the few.

Is there more hate, violence, or have we always been like this?

As a history major I definitely think we’ve always been like this. There has always been hate and violence but I think now with technology we just see more of it out there than we used to before. Now we have the ability to record it and put it out there for a huge audience which I think is why we are now so much more aware of the hate and violence that exists.

Image result for politics gif

Do you write everyday?

I try to write everyday except Sundays which is when I take a break from everything.

What inspires you to write?

My biggest inspiration is my followers and the amazing amount of support I get from them. It keeps me posting every day.

What I’m Learning… (Guest Post)

So this post is a part of the collaboration I did and it would be awesome if you check out the post I did for Linda’s blog by clicking here.

The blog I started in December of last year was about Social Media Marketing.  At that time I didn’t know what a huge subject that would turn out to be.  There are so many platforms for Social Media.  I had never know that most of them existed.  As a result my focus had to be narrowed down. So, I thought it was best to stick with the main ones I used and understood.  And I added Instagram.

Well, as many of you know,  That can even be a big undertaking.  And in the middle of this, I started another business.  My first business was why I started wanting to learn about e-commerce.

This has all helped to narrow down the information so I could decide on the most important things.  My second blog was about my first business.  But my heart wasn’t into it as much as I hoped.  And that was a surprise.

My current blog is about my Shopify business and the things I’m learning about e-commerce.  Here is the link https://lindaraesramblings.com/ .

Thank you “lifesfinewine” for allowing me to share this post with your wonderful readers and I look forward to what you will share.

The Blogger Recognition Award

Thank you so much to Sierra over at allmywoes for this nomination! Be sure to check out her blog as well because her content is amazing and inspiring and I’m sure you guys will love it!

AWARD RULES:

  • Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.

How I Got Started

Well I had always loved writing and new that I wanted to write and one of my friends started a blog so I thought I would too because that would be the perfect way to start out and get better at writing as well as build an audience for my work.

Two Pieces Of Advice For New Bloggers

  1. Don’t give up- I know it’s slow when you start out and it’s hard to get views/likes/follows but if you put effort into it and keep posting regularly and stay active it will be worth it and your blog will grow.
  2. Be active- I literally say this all the time but I’ll say it once more- WordPress is a two way street. You have to be active on other peoples blogs for them to be active on yours. You can’t just expect people to like/follow/share/comment when you’re not doing the same.

4 Things You Need To Have The Perfect Blog Post

Topic- Your topic is one of the most important things about your blog post. It doesn’t matter how much of an amazing writer you are if your topic isn’t something people want to read about. If you are looking to increase followers and traffic I would suggest looking into what topics are the most popular and writing on those. Not to say other topics aren’t great if you can pull it off feel free to write about unique topics. However, statistically already popular topics are much more likely to get you more traffic and followers.

Image result for topic gif

Title- The title will decide whether or not someone will click on your post so make sure the title is catchy and will make the reader click. How-To’s and lists are usually very popular. However, don’t lie in your title because click baits are annoying and will probably make people unfollow you.

Image result for what is it about gif

Introduction- The introduction is also very important because a lot of people don’t read past it if it’s not interesting enough. Make sure it precise and well edited so there are no spelling or grammar mistakes because this can be a huge turn off to readers.

Image result for what is it about gif

Conclusion- A lot of people seem to skip this but I think including a conclusion is a really great way to summarize your post and let the reader know what your concluding arguments/thoughts.opinions are. Plus if you have a great conclusion you are much more likely to get likes/follows.
