Hi loves, Shreya here! Hope you are all having a brilliant week so far:) Around two months ago, I was nominated by the lovely Hanna for this award/tag! As of a couple days ago, I have officially been blogging for one year! That’s right, this blog is now a year old and I couldn’t think of a better time to accept and recognise this award! So, thank you again to Hanna for nominating me…please go check out her blog! I guarantee you will enjoy it as much as I do! Now, onto this award!

2. Acknowledge the blogger that nominated you.
3. Give a brief story about how you got started blogging.
4. Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.

Ooh ok…how did I start blogging? Picture this. Before September last year, I would basically spend a good 30 minutes frantically writing in my journal about absolutely everything that I wanted to say to people, change in the world and speak out about. Just as fulfilling writing in my journal was, I really wanted to express at least a small part of my thoughts to people who agreed with me, disagreed with me or were anywhere in between. I wanted to create my own little corner on the internet to express my thoughts and feelings as well as share snippets of my life with fellow bloggers! So to answer your question, I started blogging because I wanted my thoughts and ideas to be heard while remaining pretty anonymous, while connecting with other people who have similar interests to me:)
Now that I have been blogging for a year, I guess I know a little bit about it? I’m far from being an expert of the blogging world but I do know a couple of things to always remember while blogging
Followers don’t matter! The number of readers never defines how good or not so good your blog content is! Don’t let the number affect your post choices because at the end of the day, quality is better than quantity:)
Stay true to your ideas about your blog – it’s your space. I really think that this is an important practise in the world of blogging because I feel like society is affecting our decisions so much these days, that it is important to make sure the content on your blog represents the ideas that you believe in! Authenticity is key! Show the world the you that YOU want to be, and don’t let the comments completely rule your post ideas:)
Ok, ok. It’s not 15 but these are the bloggers that first came to mind when I thought about this award! Some of these were the first blogs that I’d ever read and really have a special place in my heart:)
So that’s a wrap on this award! Hope y’all have a great week and keep your eyes open for future posts coming very soon! I am forever grateful to those of you who stop by to read my blog…it means more than the world! Love you guys<3
