Today I’m back with an extra special post thanks to Maggie @ Dreaming of Guatemala! ❤️ Maggie created the Positivity Blogger Award at the start of this month, and it is such a lovely award! I thank Maggie greatly for enabling me to be one of the first people nominated for the award! 🎉💚✨ Thank you SO much Maggie! I am so humble to have received this award, and I am also very excited to share it further into the blogging community, so thank you once again Maggie for the opportunity! 💞
So, here are the rules!
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Display the award photo and rules in your post.
3. Share the reason behind the award.
4. Answer the set of eight questions.
5. Nominate the bloggers whose blogs you love!
The Positivity Blogger Award was started by Maggie @ Dreaming of Guatemala to encourage and uplift other bloggers. Our journeys as online writers can be an arduous one, so remembering why we started, as well as going back to our roots as a blogger, is a beautiful way to stay inspired and motivated to keep on writing. Here’s to the world of bloggers!
The Questions & My Answers:
(These are all great questions, so thank you Maggie! I hope you enjoy reading my answers! ❤️)
Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog because I was in need of a hobby over the summer holidays (I think a lot of people decide to start a blog around these months 😊), and one day I thought ‘why don’t I start a blog?’. It really was that simple & perhaps a little rushed but hey, here I am today!
Are you still blogging for that same reason?
Kind of, but kind of not! I blog these days because I have fallen in love with blogging, and it takes my mind off of the world around me when things get stressful. And I also blog because it is a hobby, so yes, I’d say I am!
What is your favorite thing about your blog?
My favourite thing? Ooh… I’ve never really thought about what I like best about my lil’ blog! If you’re talking literally then I’d probably say my AMAZING graphics that Syd & Em and Ava designed for me! But otherwise, I love the ability & freedom to write absolutely anything I feel like on here. It’s great, isn’t it? 💗
Is your blog your favorite blog? (Because it should be!)
Again, a question I’ve never really thought about… Umm – yes? I don’t really know, as I try to not compare my blog to everyone else’s, as Autumn’s Angle is unique to me a bit like your blog is unique to you. I love reading everyone else’s blogs and I love writing on my blog, so I’d say my blog is my favourite blog to write on! ✨
What posts of yours are the happiest with?
Well, I’d say that ‘So Goodbye, My Friends‘ helped me to get so much off of my chest when I wrote it, so that was a relief, but I also like doing collabs & posts where I have to think about what I am going to write! If I think about it more, then usually the end result is better (I’m sure this is the same for most people!) Oh, and my previous post ‘2018: What Blogging has Taught me so far’ was so great to write too! 🎉 *oh dear… I am happy with too many of my own posts… 😂*
What is your favorite kind of post to write?
Something that involves me thinking, or COLLABS! These are often really fun posts to read and write! 😂 That reminds me, I’m looking for a few people willing to collab in 2019! If you would like to do a collaboration with me, then feel free to contact me via the form or via email! 😊 Can’t wait to hear your responses!
What is something you could do to improve your blog?
Well, I’d love to upgrade WordPress so that I could have a nicer theme (did I really just say that?… 😂) & have no more ‘.wordpress.com’ part in my URL. Apart from that, I’d love to post more regularly (if time allows) & write more posts that inspire people! 🌟
Are you happy with your blog?
Overall, I’d say yes, for now at least! But I’m always looking for ways in which to improve (aren’t we all 😂) and I’d definitely say there are small things I still need to get right! I guess I think that there’s no point not being a tiny bit happy with what you’ve got, as otherwise there’s almost no point in having a blog in the first place…
Thank you Maggie for all the lovely questions! Gosh, you made me think on numerous occasions and thank you SO MUCH for the nomination – I hope you enjoyed reading my answers! ❤️
Onto my nominations…
(there are so many lovely blogs out there that brighten up my reader! Sorry if you didn’t get nominated, I promise I still love your blog! I decided to only choose 10 people as otherwise I’d literally be nominating 100s of people! 😂)
