The Blogger Recognition Award.

When life hits you with writers block, a kindly blogger comes around tagging you in a blogger award – so thank you to the lovely Milenka for tagging me in The Blogger Recognition Award! Shall we begin?

The rules,

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award.
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select 15 bloggers you want to give this award to.
  6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them, providing a link to the post you created.

How my blog started,

When people question me on the essence of Emily Becca, I honestly don’t have a spellbinding backstory or reason for it’s creation. But I’ll try explain, in March of 2016 I felt an urge to try again with this whole blogging thing, and made an account and blog, however didn’t start blogging until the September of 2016 – exams and summer got in the way basically. And then I began my gap year, and with nothing to do in a flutter of boredom, I decided to take this blogging thing up again and began to really enjoy just talking about whatever I wanted, and finding like-minded people.

Some advice,

If you’re new to the blogging world or considering starting blogging, please take this advice into your pocket: firstly, don’t force it. How I wish someone told me this with all my previous blogs, and it applies to so many factors. Don’t force content out of you, because you won’t be happy with it in the long run and there’s no pressure to post! If its a bit sporadic to begin with that’s okay! Blogging should be enjoyable, which brings me to another aspect – don’t force a blogger in you, I know there’s this image people have when ‘blogger’ is mentioned, but it’s not always the case, if you want to write amazing, but do it about what you love and are passionate about. Be yourself, because there will be people out there who are likewise and will enjoy your blog! My final aspect of this point is not forcing followers, Twitter and other social media platforms are amazing for increasing following, but I highly suggest you don’t do any ‘F4F’s or things like it, because then it just becomes a number and not a genine audience, and I strongly believe it’s better to have a smaller number of followers who really engage and like your blog than loads but don’t appreciate your talent! Oh, and whatever you do, do not create an automated DM.

My second piece of advice is get involved with the blogging community, as they are the best people you could ever meet, and you never know, you could find your closest friends. How? You may ask? Well, to give a few examples: Twitter chats (my personal favourites are GRLPOWR, TeacupClub, The Bloggers Hub, Pretty Little Chat and BeeChat), Go to events (Best to keep up to date with this on Twitter, there’s so many if you just dig deep! And never worry about going alone, you’ll always make friends!), Guest post, Collaborate with other bloggers – and the list goes on! You’ll always be treated with respect and as if you’re an old friend in the blogging community, no matter the amount of followers!

    Thank you for including me in this devine post! Your advice is so true, I have a small following but a lot of them talk to me as well as read my blog like my tweets and reach out to me.Which i love!! Thanks Em x

  3. Emily says:

    Yessss those automated DMs are so irritating! I’m not convinced they’ve ever l, in the history of Twitter, worked for anyone.

    And you’re so right about not pushing content out. You can totally tell when somebody is just trying to crank out a post, and it doesn’t usually connect with the reader as well as an authentic post would!

    I hate getting those automated DMs they really bug me ‘thanks for following check out my blog… message created by ‘insert paid for follower company’ and 5 minutes later you’re unfollowed. I’m just as inclined to follow them and not check out their blog

      Thank you so much I’m so glad!! It’s crazy I still don’t believe it haha! Omg gurl I’m with you there! Xx

  8. Aww this is a lovely post, Em! Completely agree with your pieces of advice – it’s so much nicer to have a genuine following and a nice circle of bloggers than a huge number who follow just for the sake of it! And Twitter chats are definitely the best for finding other like-minded bloggers ☺️
