Ahhh this is so exciting !! I received a message from Lexi Mary saying she nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award ! This was such awesome and unexpected news !
What is the Blogger Recognition Award?
The Blogger Recognition Award is given to bloggers by bloggers who appreciate the hard work, dedication and vast amount of hours we all put into each and every post, as well as keeping the website current and updated. I was nominated by Lexi at LexieAnimaeTravel. I have been following her blog for awhile now although I wasn’t sure she even knew who I was ! She has been all over the world and has some amazing adventures to share. I HIGHLY recommend you check out her blog when you get the chance. You definitely won’t regret it !
How My Blog Got Started
I started writing my blog a couple months ago although I have been sharing my adventures over the past couple years through other social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram, I decided to start my own travel blog. I wanted to start sharing my adventures and advice not just with friends but with anyone who was interested in learning more about certain places. I have been traveling since I was young with my family and friends but just recently started documenting more of my trips. I have met so many great people through blogging and I have also learned so much from others.
Two Pieces of Advice for New Bloggers
- Have patience. Your blog is not going to grow over night. It takes time and attention in order for your blog to become successful. By networking and sharing your posts on different social media platforms, you can help increase your traffic and followers.
- Set goals then go achieve them ! If your goal for this month is to have a new blog post every week then stick to it. There’s so much out there to write about ! If you want to hit a certain amount of followers by a certain date, keep sharing and making new friends. You’d be surprised how supportive other bloggers are !
