I decided to mix things up a little this week. I was going to write a post about my favourite halloween/horror movies. However, after making some new friends over the past few weeks, i couldn’t resist writing a little appreciation post about them all. As i’m writing this a notification appears on my phone ‘You’ve been nominated’
I have been nominated for an award. Specifically, the ‘Versatile Blogger Award‘. Thank you SK for the nomination. It truly means a lot. Please check out her blog whenever you have the time!
The next step for me is to simply state 7 facts you may not know about me, then put forward a minimum of 10 other bloggers i think should also be nominated for this award. So scroll down to the bottom of this page to see my list of bloggers, i will link their blogs to their names so please make sure to check out their pages!
My 7 Facts:
- I love being creative. Wether it’s web design or doodling on the back of my hand, i love it..
- Smoking and drugs are my biggest turn-offs. Sorry, but i would rather not get involved.
- I try not to take life too seriously, i laugh when i can and appreciate every moment.
- I have a secret love for Saturday night TV. I love the feeling of cosying up and watching X-Factor.
- I am AWFUL at texting back.
- I have a passion for cereal
- I want to visit so many places around the world, but take my time doing it.
I’m asked often why i decided to start my blog. Honestly, I don’t know the answer. It is something i’ve wanted to do for a while. I have so much to say, and i just want the world to hear.
One of my first posts was all about one single year of my life. The post “Life Has It’s Way of Surprising us“ went crazy. I was contacted by charities, asked to write articles about my experience, i was receiving messages from strangers telling me i have changed their perspective of life. Thousands of people saw this post and i still receive messages about it today. People cried reading my blog and in return, i cried reading every single reply. The result was both so overwhelming and also so rewarding. Knowing that i had touched people in this way made me feel pride in myself. I felt a sense of accomplishment, and so, the posts continued.
As the weeks went on and my weekly posts were published i began talking to some other bloggers online. They would share and comment on all my posts and in return i would do the same for them. The tweets and comments i was getting from them made me realise how insanely supportive the blogging world is. There is never any negativity, everybody wants to help each other grow and we are all genuinely just there for each other. If anyone needs a hand with a post or generally just needs some chat, we know who to ask. We have our own little group chat of bloggers which starts with a ‘Good Morning’ and ends with a ‘How was your day?’ every single day. I see my bloggers as an escape from the real world, we don’t have to talk about anything serious, i just know they are there when i need them.
Before i was nominated for the versatile bloggers award i was planning to link them all at the end anyway. So here are 30 bloggers i think you should all go and love as much as i do, I nominate you all…
Please have a look at as many of these guys as you can. They all have great content. I hope you all have a fab week and amazing Halloween! 🙂
