Hey everyone! My good friend Sarah from sarahwarsi.com has nominated me for the Liebster Award.

Nominate at least 5 other bloggers and share your blog post with them so they can accept their awards
Sarah’s Questions For Me To Answer:
What is your favourite blog post that you’ve written and why?
Going through my posts, I think I’d have to say that one of my favorites is the post entitled: Accepting Compliments, Being Proud of Your Accomplishments. I think that, many times as writers, we doubt our abilities and talents – causing us to find it hard to believe that someone can actually enjoy our work. Additionally, I think that we sometimes fear that it’s not okay to be proud of the writing that we produce – we worry that it will make us conceited. The truth is that it’s okay, and even good to give ourselves the credit that we deserve!
What is one thing that people may not know about you that might surprise them?
While I’ve always liked reading and writing, I actually used to think it would be really cool to be a fashion designer! I really like clothes and would sometimes even draw out on paper what I thought would make cool designs!
What advice would you give to anyone thinking of starting their own blog?
I would first and foremost tell them that, if it’s not something that they’d think they’d enjoy, to not bother. I think that blogging should be fun, or at least, something that the blogger finds beneficial. Also, while I think the writer should blog for themselves, writing for an audience and really having a passion for what you’re writing can make your posts more meaningful to both yourself, and others as well. Lastly, I think someone should understand that blogging doesn’t always lead to making a profit and that blogging should be mostly about the love of writing, helping yourself, and others. There’s nothing wrong with possibly blogging for money, but not including true passion and love within your posts, in my opinion anyways, would be a huge mistake.
