Blogger recognition award and 250 Days of No-Buy

Today marks my 250 Days of No-Buy!

Fun fact: As a Mandarin slang term, the number “250” (二百五 èrbǎiwǔ) is an insult indicating “stupid person” or “simpleton”.

I was nominated sextuply (yes that’s the word) recently for the blogger recognition award – first by Katie of Plus+Beauty, secondly by Chris of fivezero, thirdly by Janella of Skin Diary, fourthly by happiness of StyledWithJoy, fifthly by chic and Polished, and finally by polished and Inspired!

Blogger recognition award Rules

Write a post describing why you started blogging along with a few tips.

Nominate some of your fellow bloggers.

Comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.

Why I started a blog:

It must be pretty self obvious by now – I started this blog to distract myself from the challenge of my yearlong No-Buy!

My SO and friends also encouraged me to start a blog considering that I seem to take pleasure in sharing information about skincare and makeup. I also wanted to flex my writing muscles as well as have an outlet for creative pursuits like photography and digital illustrations.

Tips: Ask yourself, do you enjoy receiving likes on your blog entry? Do you get a tinge of excitement when a new comment is posted?  Of course you do.  Well, so does everyone else.  It’s great to give and to receive – don’t be selfish with blog participation.  Don’t just reply to your own blog comments, go and actually read other people’s blogs and participate there.

And don’t compare yourself! It’s tough to avoid this, but blogging is not a numbers game.  I really take pleasure in the qualitative things about blogging – the kinds of people I get to interact with, the information I learn, the beautiful photos shown – these to me, are a lot of important.

A few a lot more functional tips:

Jot down any blog ideas that pops up as soon as you think of them onto your phone or in a notebook, often those fleeting ideas are the best ones

Keep a few “back pocket” type articles in your draft folder for when inspiration just doesn’t come – they can tide you over until the blockage clears

Create monthly recurring articles like Empties or Favourites – this will automatically fill in content for your blog
