After having my blog for only about three weeks, I received a couple of very nice comments nominating me for blogging awards. I’m still quite new to the blogging community and I’ve waited a while to participate in the award posts because I wasn’t really sure what they were all about. As I understand it, blogging awards of this style are a good way to share a little more about yourself with your readers. In addition, you also share some of the newer blogs you enjoy reading. From my perspective there’s a bit of self promotion involved, but as I’ve been exposed to more of these award posts I find them a wonderful “getting to know me” opportunity. They also help you to feel more involved and accepted in the blogging community, which is something I think any blogger will appreciate.
Just a note about my nominations for these award tags, I’m only going to choose a handful of people for each one. I still don’t know too many other smaller bloggers like myself and I feel like I’d run out of people to nominate! Also a HUGE thank you to each and every one of the girls who nominated me for an award. I know it took me a while to get around to this post, but I really appreciate the recognition and feeling more included in the beauty blogging community.
