Hello my lovelies,
I have some exciting news today, I have been nominated for The Sunshine Blogger award! So, what is it…
The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award given from blogger to blogger to recognize each others work. I was given the Sunshine Award by Ami from Ignite Strive Glow, thank you so much! I have loved reading Ami’s blog, she blogs about travel, health & Wellness and her own personal achievements, as well as proving that we can all work on self-improvement and deserve happiness. The Sunshine Blogger award is given to blogs that bring a little bit of sunshine into readers’ lives, radiating positivity and happiness which is exactly what I want to achieve through my blog and I’m honoured to have been nominated, thank you Ami from Ignite, Strive, Glow!
How did you start blogging?
I started blogging as a teenager and university student, I wanted a focus that was separate from my studies, a place where I could go to talk about other aspects of my life, to share life’s little pleasures and somewhat escape. The blogging community really is so vast and welcoming and I love reading little snippets into other people’s lives, getting inspiring ideas regarding all the things I love: yoga, meditation, creativity, sewing, nature, mindfulness and simply learning about the world I live in. Blogging makes me appreciate all the little things in life.
What do you want people to get out of your blog?
I want people to be able to come to my blog and find a little bit of light and sunshine that may be lacking from their lives, I want people to read my content because they want to, because they enjoy it and because it gives them some sort of personal gratification and pleasure, whatever that may be. Perhaps people feel there is some sort of connection to my blog, something about me that they can relate to or they may even just want to learn sewing tips or why they should try yoga.

The Liebster Award Rules and Sunshine Award Rules
If you have been nominated for The Liebster/Sunshine Award AND YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT, write a blog post about the Liebster/Sunshine award in which you should do the following:
Thank the person who nominated you, and put a link to their blog on your blog. Try to include a little promotion for the person who nominated you. They will thank you for it and those who you nominate will also help you out as well.
Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.) At the bottom of this post, I’ve included a whole lot of images you can use for your 2017 Liebster Award.
For the 2017 Liebster/ Sunshine Award, I will be shaking things up! Write a 150-300 word post about your favourite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog, provide links.
Provide 10 random facts about yourself. (This year I’m making this optional. If you wish to engage with your readers it’s a great idea to include random facts about you.)
Nominate 5 – 11 blogs that you feel deserve the award, who have a less than 200 followers. (Note that you can always ask the blog owner this since not all blogs display a widget that lets the readers know this information!)
List these rules in your post (You can copy and paste from here or simply link to this post.) Once you have written and published it, you then have to:
Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster award and provide a link for them to your post or mine if you don’t have all the information so that they can learn about it (they might not have ever heard of it! Post a comment in the comments below so I can view your post and check out your blog. I personally visit each and everyone. I visited a few hundred last year!!
If you have been nominated before at any time please share the love. Many people believe the Liebster award is similar to a chain email/letter and sure it shares similarities but the underlining idea is to help promote each others’ blogs.
And that’s a wrap! Thank you once again Ami for the nomination and thank you to all my wonderful nominees for creating such beautiful content! Peace and love xo
