If you are nominated then here are the rules-

1) 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.

2) Write a post to show off your award. Give a brief story on how your blog got started, and give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you've nominated in the post. Make sure to attach the award itself! You can do this by right clicking, saving and uploading the image above.

3) Comment on each blog and let them know you've nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.

My Story

It's kind of sad really. I have no friends who read like me. I have one friend who reads but it's that erotica stuff that I'm not into. So I have no one to share my thoughts with or fangirl with in my everyday life. It's been like this for years. My sister will listen and my boyfriend does too but they really don't care, haha. I'd never thought about starting a blog... what would I write? How could I talk to others? I'm quite shy. Then I read the Lux series... Katy was a book blogger. It gave me the idea and I went with it. 
I don't even remember my first blog post, a review but I don't know of what book. It took a very long time to get my first comment but I saw it... I was so amazingly happy. I'm still so happy to get every single comment I do. That's my story. Short and sweet. Only a few more months till my blog anniversary though. I started on November 11, 2014. Thank you all so much for coming with me on this road and for all the friends I've made.

My Advice

Do what you want, don't do memes and stuff just to get followers. It will get boring. If you enjoy your posts and have fun then that's all that matters.

My second piece of advice is for new bloggers, don't get disheartened if no one comments, it happens. It still happens to me. It's how it goes. So don't stop or give up. Keep on going!
