A bunch of awards!!!! + a photoshoot!

Hey guys! So, here is that award post I was going to post last Friday! I was nominated for four awards, but mainly just for the same two. I hope you like this post since it took hours to type and I had to type it twice!

First is the Blogger Recognition Award! Thanks to Adi, Eve, Leah, Hope, Jessica Rae, Maddie, Meghan, Polka dot bee, Ginny and June, and Leah for nominating me! I am not putting links to anybody's name in this whole post, because I already did that in the first post I typed of this and it takes a really long time. Sorry about that! ;)
  • 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 the Edge of NightThat way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing! (It happens LOL).

Note: You can decline the award if you don't feel up to doing the above, but remember—you have to earn it by doing the work! :)

My brief story:
So, one day, when I was about 10, I was searching the internet and I came upon this blog called American Girl Fan. I loved it so much and asked my parents for my own  blog when I was probably around 12. They said no, but I would still beg them all the time! After a while, I quit asking. I mean, I would ask every once in a while, but not very often. Then, in August of this year, I asked my parents again and finally, after four years of waiting, they said yes! I was so happy and I created this blog on August 12, 2014.

Advice to new bloggers:
1. Be creative and original!
2. When people take time out of their day just to comment on your blog you need to reply to them!!!!
3. DO NOT HAVE WORD VERIFICATION ON YOUR COMMENT BOX!!!!!!! Now you all know how much I hate word verification. ;)
4. Comment on other people's blogs!
Sorry that advice kind of sucks! I had better advice in my post that got deleted, but I couldn't remember what I put in that post.
