The Blogger Recognition Award

Hello again! I was nominated a couple of days ago for this award by my friend Grace from her amazing blog PaperClipsandPins. Many thanks! If everyone could go check out her blog, I’m sure she would absolutely love it!

The Rules

  1. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award. Attach the logo to your blog.
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give a piece of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select 10 other blogs to give the award to.


How it all started

I had been thinking about starting a blog for a while before I finally did start writing. It wasn’t until a lot of my friends started blogs that I decided it was finally time. I started Life as a Homeschooled Teen in November of 2014. It was a way for me to practice writing and I continued by adding more posts about life. And now here I am. :) My original goal was to post once a week but this year, I thought I would start trying to post more often so you can expect more posts. ;)

Advice for New Bloggers

My advice for new bloggers is to make use of your About pages. For a long time, I had a general two/three sentence description of myself on my About page. It wasn’t until recently that I realized how much your About page is important. If you think about it, this page is where all of your visitors will go to find out more about you. Your reader’s first impression is everything. Add enough information to satisfy.

Another thing I would say is to keep in mind that the number of followers that you have, it’s just a number. I know it feels great to have many followers but that number does not define you. It may take a while but they will come!
