Hi everyone I was so surprised to see that my dear blogging friend Bern, from Berns Bakes nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award.I honestly never thought I would be nominated. You see I’m kind of really shy and don’t always like to put myself out there, and I know I don’t network nearly as much as I should as a blogger. Sometimes I have really ‘great’ comments to give but after I typed it out I don’t always post it, back to the point. Thank you once again Bern you really made my day when I logged on today and saw that I have been nominated!!!!!:)
You should definitely check out her blog, she makes awesome recipes and she has great food ideas. I’ve tried quite a few of her recipes and I’ve never been disappointing. This is the carrot cake I made from her website.
You can find her website at https://bernbakes.wordpress.com/

I first started my blog 8 months ago. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now. My first idea was to tell people more about my town Seosan but it grew into so much more. Sometimes I write about travel and other times I write about food. It has really grown into an extension of my self and I love every moment of it, even if I spend the whole day baking and making to have posts for the following week. Thank you to all of you who have supported my blog over the past 8 months.
If I could give 2 pieces of advice the first would be to be true to yourself. People notice it when you’re only blogging to make a quick buck by listing products all the time. Write good quality posts. Write about your life, or something you feel passionate about. Like minded readers will follow you. In addition quality is much better than quantity but also be consistent. If you decide to post 3 times a week, then post 3 times. Your readers will expect that kind of consistency and will wonder what happened to you if you don’t post often, or they might just loose interest.
The second piece of advice would be to invest in a good camera. It doesn’t have to be expensive. Good pictures does so much for your blog. A lot of the time people don’t have time to read all the blog posts in their reader, so they might just have a quick peek at all of them or only look at the interesting ones. Therefore if you have lots of pictures people will like to look at them even if they don’t have time to read your whole post, they might even save it for later to see what you were writing about.
Here are my nominees.
