My first post (actually second if you count the apologies) after such a long break and of course, of course it is an award. Maybe I should be getting an award for going a month without internet.
Anyway, I do need to thank Bookstogetlostin and Sripurna for nominating me. Thanks girl! Come on guys, go check her blog.
1) Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.
Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
2) Write a post to show off your award!
Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you’ve nominated in the post.
3) Make sure to also attach the award itself!
(You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above).
4) Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them.
Provide a link to the award post you created.
5) Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night.
That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing!

How I started my blog and some tips to the new bloggers:
I started this blog a long time ago, maybe a year or so but I just started actively blogging 6-7 months ago. When I started this blog, I wanted to write new stories and share it with the world. But when I got little to no response, I left the blog. I didn’t even think about it for a long time until one day I thought, hey I have tried doing a Writer blog but what about a book blog. I read a lot of books and love to talk about them, so why not? And that when I started again but even then it took me a long time to figure out how everything worked on wordpress and now here I am.
The only thing I want to say to new bloggers is, make friends, talk to people, your readers and other bloggers the way you talk to real people (or maybe not if you have social anxiety, then just talk like you’re talking to yourself, that helps a lot). And if you don’t understand how to get started and who to talk to, I’m right here. Just stop by and say hi!
Now’s the thing I hate most. Nominating other bloggers. And it’s not because I don’t like other bloggers. It’s just that I have to dig a lot and then link those people and I am the laziest person ever. This time I’m nominating people I’ve never nominated before.
And that’s it. I know it is cheating. I nominated 5 instead of 15 but please spare me.
