Ages and ages ago my friend Matt from Matt-In-The-Hat nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Awwww gracias! Cue my happy face! Unfortunately I haven’t been able to sit down and post about it because I want on my hiatus shortly after being nominated!
Well I’m back in the game and it’s time to crank this post out! The Blogger Recognition Award is given to other bloggers by bloggers to say, “Hey, I dig what you’re doing over there!” Basically it’s all about supporting each other. So I can’t think Matt enough for the shoutout. Too cool!
The rules are the following (bum bum buuuuuum)!!!
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
- Write a post to show your award.
- Give a brief story of how your blog started.
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
- Select other bloggers you want to give this award to.
- Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.
These rules are a piece of cake.
The Story Of GrimmGirl
I feel like at one point or another I’ve discussed this before, for sure when I livestreamed, but basically I started Grimmgirl in November 2015. I wanted a place to talk about all the things I dig and I wanted to find other people who were into those things as well.
I’m really the only one out of my friend group into anime, manga, otome, kdramas, cosplay, kpop/jrock… The list goes on. There are also few people I know in my life who really dig makeup and things like that the way I do. So being able to combine my interest and talk to really awesome people, talk about a win win!
So GrimmGirl was born and it has been a totally blast ever since! I’ve meet so many amazing people and it has really helped to give me perspective on different viewpoints.
Advice For Bloggers
For the love of GOD schedule your posts. I honestly did not know that was a feature at first. Cut me some slack, if chat with me on Twitter or watch my livestreams you’ll know that me and technology do not get a long. However learning how to schedule your posts will safe you so much time, energy, and anguish.
I love scheduling my posts! It frees me up while still letting me to put out content on a regular bases. I don’t get paid for blogging so I still have to go to work, make time for my family, and do all the other stuff everyone else does. Life happens and knowing that I don’t have to worry about blogging every day because I have a week worth’s of posts scheduled is a super relief.
My second piece of advice would be to remember that your blog is just that.
So have fun with it and write about things that interest you. Trust me, there is someone out there who will connect with that. I mean look at GrimmGirl. I have honestly never seen another site that talks about all the lovely otaku things in the world while also discussing makeup, fashion, vegetarian/vegan stuff, and anything else you will find in my Personal Grimmiore section but that’s exactly the stuff I write about! And have meet the coolest people ever doing just that!
So be yourself and write about the things you love! Honestly that is truly the best piece of advice I can give!
Here are just a few blogger that I dig in this world! So go check them out! I personally hope to here how they each got their blogging starts as well ❤
See you all Friday for my new OWLS post! Just a sneak peak into what I’ll be discussing but look forward to some talk on Bleach!
Peace and Love Grimms ❤
