Β *cracks knuckles & drinks a sip of water* Lets Get This Award Post Started!
You’re currently reading a post showing my award, so I guess that’s the 1st step all wrapped up -CHECK! πŸ™‚
Thankyou so much to Jo Smith, Jess, Madi, youronlinepal, Mandalf584, ArtistByBeauty, Evelynn C and Kat Graphing Blog for nominating me! Anyone who doesn’t know them should check them out now – because they are honestly great, supportive & inspirational bloggers. Without them, I wouldn’t be writing this post today! Thankyou so much & keep the fabulous posts coming! ❀️

How my blog started? Hmm…that’s a good question. Tbh, I had been thinking for many weeks (before starting my blog) of ways to communicate with different people online & ways where I could share my thoughts, opinions & feelings – but I had no idea what to do or how to start. So one day, while I was supposedly studying Accounting…I decided to take a break & surf the internet. It all started from here. I found many WordPress blogs which I loved & this inspired me to create a blog of my own and see how it goes. It never crossed my mind that I’d even get recognized in the 1st few weeks, but it’s like what they say “Expect The Unexpected”. I also didn’t imagine that only my 10th post would be me thanking 13 bloggers who nominated me for various awards!

Before I move onto the tips & advice, I would like to say that the community here is great! Everyone is so friendly, kind & helpful! It’s also a great feeling to post something which gets both immediate AND positive feedback. Today, I truly can’t imagine what my life was like before blogging! Thanks Everyone! ❀️
ADVICE TIP #1: Be yourself. Be creative. This is very important newbies! Don’t copy off other bloggers – be original! It disappoints me to see new bloggers creating very similar blog names, blog captions, blog styles & blog posts to other successful bloggers. I won’t say any names, but I’m sure you know who you are. Think outside the box. Think of new ideas. Be original. Get inspired. It’s not fair if you take an idea developed by someone already & tweak it a bit. Try to be more inventive. Produce a blog that relates to you & where everything is produced by that great mind of yours. This way, your blog will succeed, since there’ll be no other blog that is the same. Everyone is different. Take advantage of that. If you use your own creativity, your blog will be unique & as a result stand out!

ADVICE TIP #2: Interact with other bloggers. In order to be recognised & successful, you need to get out there! Follow bloggers, leave comments, request from others to check out your blog, like various posts, & post regularly. You can’t just write your post, press ‘Publish’ and wait for the people to come find you. It will never happen. YOU need to go & find your potential readers. It’s a shame to see great blogs that don’t get much views, because of their lack of interaction. Be daring, get out of your comfort zone, and make it happen!
Now, the time has finally come for the nominations! ❀️

I’ll comment on each blog after I finish writing this blog – promise! πŸ™‚

For the nominations, I’d like to nominate the same blogs I nominated above!, because they deserve 2 awards from the same blogger πŸ™‚
Yay – I’m done with the awards! Just before I wrap this post up…I’d like to say a few things!

Β Really? I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the notification! 112 followers & 204 likes? Are you kidding me?
Image result for are you kidding me gif
I had to blink several times to get over my shock & surprise! I would have never imagined that I’d reach these numbers, but I’m proud to say that I have! Why? Because I’m doing something I love, I’m being creative, I’m trying my best to be interesting & I put the effort. Thanks Again To Everyone Who Made This Happen & Cheered Me Up! πŸ™‚
Also, by now, (I hope) you’ve actually come to recognize my blog posting routine. For weeks now, I’ve been posting 1 day, resting the other, posting 1 day, resting the other and so on. So technically, my next post should be this Thursday. Should be. However, I’m officially entering my exam zone this very Thursday & I’ll be finishing on the 23rd of January. That is why my blog-posting routine might get a bit muddled up the next week & a half / 2 weeks. Sorry for that! 😦
Image result for sorry gif
I’ll still post, but not in the same orderely routine I have managed to maintain by now. (wow, that sounded so formal!). Anyway, I’ll be continuing with the same blog-posting routine after 23rd January! πŸ™‚
Gotta Go Now! Wish Me Luck – I have both an english & accounting exam after-tomorrow. I’m trying to calm down my neves, but I hate that squeaky voice in the back of your mind which insists that you’re not going to do well!
Once Again, Thankyou To Everyone & Enjoy The Rest Of Your Week!  Hope you enjoyed reading this post! ❀️
Comment what you think of this post or anything you wish below!
Bye For Now πŸ™‚
Smiling Dreamer xoxo

  1. Sooo… can I call you F now? Haha! Thank you so much for nominating me. I really like your blog, and how you write. It’s a breath of fresh air.

    Because of you, I now know that I was born on a Wednesday. (Thanks, Google).. and thank YOU.

    You have really nice tips for new bloggers. I am honored to have been nominated. Thank you so much! ❀ ❀ ❀

    1. Hahaha! You can, if you want. I just don’t feel ready to say my name – just yet. I like being kind of annonymous. It’s my pleasure! 😊 I’m delighted that you like my blog! Hahaha, I thought it was a fun fact to include since I feel like lots of people don’t know which day of the week they’re born. Yay – we’re Wednesday Buddies! Also glad that you think my tips are nice! πŸ™‚ Congratulations – you’re a great & inspirational blogger – you definitely deserve it. No need to thank me! ❀️❀️

      1. ❀ ❀ I perfectly understand being anonymous on a blog. Don't worry. It's just easier to call you F rather than "Smiling Dreamer" all the time. Haha! I love that we're Wednesday Buddies. So maybe we're WB? (lol)

        Congrats on your follow count! It will grow more and more. πŸ™‚

  2. Yay! Thank’s so much for nominating me, I’m sorry, but I already did both of these awards. Also, I loved the beginning part, where you couldn’t think of a Hi line, I literally do that every single time I have to right an email.I was actually wondering if I could have your email? I wanted to do a mass collab with you and a ton of other bloggers, so I was hoping you could give me your email? Thanks!!

  5. Thank you so much for the nominations! πŸ˜€ You’re so right about creating original content. To be honest, I kind of just sit down and write – I’m not one for planning and I’m not very good at entertaining aha, hence why I love your posts because I enjoy them so much! Good luck for your exams, and don’t worry about messing up your schedule πŸ™‚ Aha, I used to watch Tom and Jerry all the time – I haven’t in ages!xx
