Goooood morning everyone! I cannot think of a better way to start off my weekend than to wake up to this award nomination! Thank you SO much to A Pinch of Sea Salt , a delicious blog that is inspired by her and her husband’s love of food. Seriously, if you love finding new recipes, trying new food, and looking at gorgeous pictures of food (this girl right here!), then you will definitely want to check out A Pinch of Sea Salt.
So here is a brief overview of the rules if you are nominated – full rules can be found originally on Edge of Night:
- Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
- Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
- Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.
Now let’s get to it!
Just A Hint Of began earlier this year with my sudden desire to share my own discoveries and be inspired by fellow bloggers all over the world. I really wanted to have my own little space on the internet to fill up with the things that make me happy. And the things that make me happy are eclectic to say the least! Sweet & savory bites make me smile. Evening gowns & fall layers make me smile. Anything fluffy also makes me smile! And I want to share those things with you here!
Now there is so much advice all over the blogosphere already from much more seasoned bloggers than myself, but the biggest advice that I can give to anyone, especially newer bloggers, is to NOT GIVE UP. Starting a blog can be hard and at times, frustrating. Especially when you are writing posts but feel as if no one is even seeing them! It is during these times that you must try to keep in mind that you are writing first and foremost for yourself. Your blog is a piece of you, a reflection on your day to day life that will be a treasure to look back as you get older. It will change, grow, and evolve as you mature, and that’s okay. So keep at it! 🙂
Finally, here are 15 blogs that have inspired me to keep at it and that I nominate for The Blogger Recognition Award – you guys rock!
