Blogger Recognition Award!

So a few days ago, I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award! The first person who nominated me was Jamie, who runs the wonderful blog  Don’t Give a Jam. She creates an array of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle posts, and is definitely one of my favorite bloggers. I strongly suggest you check out her blog and give it a follow! Also, I was nominated by the lovely Dee, who runs Stuff In A Powder Puff, which is a really amazing makeup and beauty blog. You should definitely follow her blog as well! Thank you both for the nominations.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.


Currently, Lately is essentially the product of weekend boredom. I started this blog early last August, feeling desperately in need of a new hobby. Blogging had always appealed to me because of my interest in writing. Thus, I decided to give it a try. After a few weeks, I discovered how amazing and versatile the blogging community is. I started out making primarily making beauty, books, and fashion content, but now I feel like I blog about a little bit of everything I enjoy. (Hence the tagline!)

I think my biggest advice for new bloggers would be to create content you’re passionate about. Find a topic that really resonates with you and channel it into your blog. People have a good sense of dedication and enthusiasm and promise if you show it, it’ll lead them to your site. Another tidbit I think is very important is to take lots of photos. When I first started my blog, I had absolutely no idea how critical the photo-taking process was. Photos are often what draw people to your posts, so I would recommend taking the time to make yours look the best that they can.
