Blogger Recognition Award!

Hello, all!

I've been nominated for a Blogger Recognition Award! First off, I would like to thank Psycholo-geek so much for nominating me. It was a super nice surprise! 

Apparently, there's some guidelines to this, so here we go!

This award was created by Edge of Night, and these are the guidelines:
  • 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.
  • 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. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you've nominated in the post. Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above). 
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you've nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created. 
  • Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing.
How I Got Started: 

I started this blog off on a whim because for years I've bored my friends with my constant nerd talking, and I figured it was time to give them a break. Also, I went to school for journalism, so I've always had a passion for writing, and I figured why not just mix the two together? I always toyed with the idea of starting a blog, but honestly, I didn't think many people would even be interested in my ramblings. So, it's awesome to see that some of you guys like it as well!

My Advice to New Bloggers:

In the simplest terms, write what you know and write what you love. Writing about something that gets you excited will always come across way better than words you threw together just for the heck of it.

Also, don't write for other people. Don't change your views/opinions on something just to get more comments or anything like that. There's no fun in trying to please everyone, that's not what writing's about. Plus, it's your blog! (Just, don't be mean--No one likes a jerk.)

Now, my nominations!

And just to throw it out there, participation isn't mandatory, so no pressure or anything! 

Thanks again!


  1. Thanks Heather! I actually nominated you for this too last week, but I sent it through Google+ instead of commenting so I'm thinking a few of my nominations didn't see it=( So TECHNICALLY, you're also nominated for a Liebster award! Anyway, thanks for the nomination, loved learning about how you got started! It's nice having a community of awesome geeky people who actually enjoy our ramblings, right? <3

    1. Haha, thank you! That's a prestigious award! And you're so welcome, us nerds gotta stick together! :]

  2. Thank you for the nomination! <3
    And this is wonderful advice! It really is important to remember that you write for yourself first and foremost.

    1. You're very welcome! And thanks, someone told me that once, and I think it's something everyone needs to hear :]

  3. I love your advice! I couldn't agree with it more! Thanks for picking me! I think I just did this a week or two ago! LOL
