The Most Active Blogger Award

Two people in the blogging community just made my day. I have been nominated by GrabbetyCovens and Love Yourself for the Most Active Blogger Award. I am so happy, excited and blessed all at the same time. Having one blogger nominate me for anything makes me so happy, so having two amazing bloggers nominate me- I’m definitely on cloud 9 right now!

Now to talk about these amazing people:

GrabbetyCovens the tagline of his blog says it all, “You’ve survived what you thought would destroy you.  Now… get the fuck up, dust yourself off and keep pushing forward.” I have reread his tag as a reminder to myself that even though I have a bad day or stuff isn’t where I want it to be in my life that I’m still alive and there’s still time to fight. His writings are awesome, I always look forward to his poetry.  They are real, raw and inspiring. I would highly recommend checking out his blog and interacting with him. I’ve had so much fun talking to him and sharing ideas. You won’t be disappointed!

Love Yourself which blogs are so inspiring! The name speaks for itself, the post are an awesome pick me up if you’re ever down. A vivid reminder of the good in each of our lives and how there’s always more for each of us in this world. One of my favorite positive bloggers to read. I always get excited when I see a new blog pop up because I know I will be lifted up and inspired to be my best self. I would definitely recommend reading some blog posts for an instant pick-me-up and fantastic read.

Both of these individuals are amazing bloggers that are enjoyable not only as writers but as people too. I highly recommend giving them a follow.

My Nominee’s are:

  1. Luna : This happens to be one of my favorite blogs on this site. I get lost for hours on her site reading all the different Gaming news, unboxings, series blogs and creative writing post. It’s a great mix of nerd meets awesome and there is a little something for everyone, or if you’re like me a lot of something. She was the first person’s post I’d read after every Game of Thrones because I loved her takes on things. Give her a follow, read some posts and drop some comments and you’ll see for yourself!
  2. Brett Little : One of my favorite poetry bloggers on this site. His words are emotions poured onto a page. When I read his thought provoking words I truly get inspired. He conveys the power and raw emotions of his feelings so gracefully. When I see one of his posts I definitely stop what I’m doing and sit down for a quick read. His words resonate which makes his work brilliant. Give him a follow, drop him a comment and check out his work. You’ll be hooked right away!
  3. Superwifeandmummy : Her writings are though provoking and so alluring, especially her poetry. Her words jump from the page dancing through my mind and speaking to my heart. Her Children’s Poetry is my favorite to read, so well put together and thought out. If you have kids worth the read and even reading it to them. Even if you don’t they are brilliant pieces of inspiration and fun. I’ve also really like her post called, “Thursday treat.” They’ve been great reads and are post I always look forward too. Want to check them out? Tomorrow a new one will be posted! Give her a follow, drop her a comment and enjoy her posting.

Nominees, here are the rules:

1) Create a new post stating that you’ve been nominated by me, linking my blog to your post.

2) Nominate other bloggers and let the cycle continue.

Blogger Recognition Award

Hello my fellow bloggers! I am so happy to announce that I was nominated for the, “Blogger Recognition Ward.” The nomination is for bloggers from other bloggers. It gives the opportunity for blogs to be seen and read by other people who may not have seen your work before. I’m always awestruck when someone nominates me for any award but especially a blogger award. There are so many amazing bloggers and it’s truly inspiring and humbling to be thought of.

 

Who Nominated Me?

I was nominated by Valerie, who blogs about simple tips for people that have no time. These time saving ideas are brilliant and things I would never have thought of.  I really like the fact that she’s not focusing on just one topic either, she gives tips from health to college and career. There’s great ideas in her blog for anyone that has a busy life and even if you don’t who doesn’t like to save some time? Check her out, give her a follow and enjoy her tips. You won’t be disappointed. http://www.simpletipsblog.com/

 

My Advice For Bloggers

There’s two big things that come into my mind for advice for any blogger, no matter the theme or ideas of your blog. The first one is blog about something you truly love, enjoy and are passionate about. ThiIs will shine through your posts and draw more people to you. Don’t worry if you feel like it’s not a popular blog topic, there will always be people out there who want to read what you write. So, don’t be discourage and keep true to yourself!

The second thing is interact with the blogging community. I was nervous to do this at first because I thought so many things from I’m not a big enough blogger for people to want to talk too or no one will want to read my posts. But one day I decided too and it was the best and biggest step for me. All the bloggers I have interacted with have been completely supportive, kind and given constructive criticism, which only helps me to grow as a writer and blogger. Please take a second, give your thoughts on a blog, go to twitter and join a blogging community or five.

Why I Started My Blog

I had only shown a handful of family and friends my writings and creative thoughts before. I was nervous about sharing them with anyone else. There are so many talented people in this world but I realized they only have grown as writer’s from sharing their works with others. Big or small publishing, blogs or writings groups- this is when I knew I was holding myself back by not doing so. I created my blog and began to post, not knowing what I was doing or how to do it. I jumped in head first and have learned everything as I go. This has made the journey fun and fulling for me. I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner but am so happy to be blogging now.

Unique Blogger Award: 2017

I am still new to the blogging world, so even to be considered for any award is exciting and inspiring. A big thank you goes out to Aparna_097 for thinking of me and nominating me for this award. Aparna’s poems are beautifully written, making the words come to life in your heart and mind. I will highly recommended checking out Aparna’s post and giving a follow.

The rules are as follows:

  • Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you by nominating you.
  • Answer the questions.
  • In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  • Ask them 3 questions.

 

My Answers:

  1. What was the best moment of your life?

Holly: Hmm. This is a hard question because life is made up of so many amazing moments that it’s hard to pick just one… The first moment that jumps in my mind is being asked to be a part of my best friend’s wedding. Being a part of the love and celebration was truly amazing.

  1. What inspire you the most, when you bounce back into the realm of sadness?

Holly: I actually write best when I’m in “the realm of sadness”, I feel like it helps me unlock all my other emotions and my brain works overtime trying to place my words correctly. I’m not always sad though! What normally pulls me out is the support of my friends and family.

  1. What compelled you to blog?

Holly: I’ve been writing for a long time and I was very limited on who I shared my writings with. After some encouragement from these people and a kick in the pants I made a blog. I wanted to share my writing with people, get their thoughts/feelings on it. I will only get better if I push myself to grow and my blog is how I can grow.
