Blogger Recognition Award

blogger-recognition-award
Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday ❤
.
Since my lifestyle blog Alive & Living is relatively new and has room for improvements, I appreciate those who reach out and express how my work has resonated with them. I feel honored to share that I have been nominated for the “Blogger Recognition Award” by Little Beauty Book this past week. This award, which I did not see coming (lol), is an innovative way to connect the blogging community and commend the work of other dedicated bloggers.

Award Guidelines

Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog. [Then, w]rite a post to show your award [and briefly explain the] story of how your blog started. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers [and] select other bloggers you want to give this award to. [Please remember to] comment on each blog [with] the link to the post you created [so they] know you have nominated them.


Beginnings

There were lots of things that inspired me to start blogging, but my family and friends inspired me most. These lovely people would always tell me that I am a creative and resourceful person, which basically motivated me to share what I have to say with the world. Once I joined Pinterest and discovered YouTube, I knew I wanted to be part of this online world and gave blogging a try. 

In this time and day, I learned people are alive but not always living. They are just going through the motions and sometimes do not pursue their passions or interests. I believe we should live life to the fullest and so named my blog Alive & Living, for it encompasses my life mantra. This little blog of mine is a creative outlet where I can talk about all things beauty, display my fashion evolution, try DIYs/crafts, and more.

Advise For New Bloggers

There are many things I have leaned about blogging through trial and error. If you are a new blogger (or even an experienced one!), I recommend creating AND updating a plan of action for postings. What I mean by this is establish a blogging schedule for brainstorming ideas, prepping, and executing your work. I found that consistency is key for blog growth and traffic. Another tip for bloggers is to find others in the blogging community that share your same interests and network. You can learn from their experiences, find inspiration for your content, build friendships, and make blogging worthwhile this way.

Nominations

I would like to recognize the quality and unique content from the following blogs:

  1.      Antonia Robinson
  2.      Busy Bee
  3.      The Chic Community
  4.      Currently, Lately
  5.      Dolled Up By J
  6.      The Homemaker’s Life
  7.      Jessica Jade Beauty
  8.      Of Pixie Dust
  9.      SIMPLY UNDONE
  10.      THIS IS MY BLISS

Joining Instagram | Alive and Living

Hello everyone! Happy Monday ❤

I’m finally done with all my [University] finals and have started Spring Break today! Since I now have more time on my hands, I decided to attend to projects I’ve put aside due to school. A much needed break is also needed so I won’t be posting next week. I have good news though! Because I feel much more comfortable blogging and have created an ideal blogging schedule (new posts every Tuesday), I joined Instagram!

Instagram | Alive & Living

Instagram is another creative outlet that anyone can use to build their online presence. It’s especially useful for bloggers because it allows them to share their thoughts and ideas visually, capturing moments while growing their readership. You can find my Instagram here and I plan to incorporate it into my blogging routine. Expect motivational quotes, fashion inspiration, and more!

Do you have an Instagram for your blog? I would love to check it out and others will too! Link it below ❤

Sincerely, Ingrid Nicole
