Eeek! So this is my first tag EVER how exciting is that?! I’ve been tagged by the wonderful and absolutely lovely Rhaea from rhaea.co.uk. Thank you so much, this literally has made my day 🙂

These are the rules: 

✓ 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 15 bloggers you want to give this award to.
✓ Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them, providing a link to the post you created.

Soooo, let’s get started. I feel like I’m a bit of an imposter giving advice as I’m constantly learning myself but I’ll give it a go eh!

How my blog started:

I started my blog after my ski season, with the initial idea about creating a community for seasonnaires and posting about all things skiing and snow related. But, unsurprisingly I ran out of ideas pretty quickly seeing as I wasn’t actually on a season anymore (duh). Then I started writing so I could have an online portfolio of work that I could use to help me with my career.

Now my blog is a little bit of everything and I post what I feel like writing about. I like to give advice and share fun things so I’m still kind of figuring out the direction for now but we’ll see.

Advice for new bloggers:

1 – DO NOT get sucked into the numbers game. It’s so easy to get disheartened by getting obsessive over numbers and it happens to all of us. I was like, okay I’ve done 6 posts now, where are all my 1000’s of views AT?! (Not gonna happen) Just keep posting the stuff you love and your audience will come 🙂

2 – Always be true to yourself. If you are not into the latest blogging trend, you don’t need to write a post about it to fit it. (Of course if you laav it then post away 😉 ) I like reading things that show how passionate you are about something or getting the genuine feeling of happiness from a post rather than something that’s been pushed out without much effort. You do you, boo!
