Recognition Blogger Award!


Thank you Sarah at Forever Aspiring Writer for nominating me for this award! Sorry it took me so long. 😦

The Rules:

~ Write a post to show your award.

~ Give a brief story of how your blog started.

~ Give two pieces of advise for new bloggers.

~ Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

~ Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.

How my blog started: Well there is not a very big story behind the start of my blog. My friend got her blog, and then my sister, and then I joined them because I thought it would be fun! And I am so glad that I did start blogging!

Advice for new bloggers: First of all, be yourself. Don’t try to copy what other people blog about, unless that is what you are passionate about.

Write about things that you love. I am not a poet and I know it! So why would I write poems (attempt I should say) and post them on my blog? I love music and encouraging others, so that is what I post the most.

Communicate with other bloggers. Blogging is a community. I think it is so important to talk to and communicate with the bloggers who follow you and who you follow! It shows that you are interested in them and fully support them.

My biggest tip is this one: don’t get upset if you don’t post regularly. I used to get really upset with myself because I didn’t post a lot. It can be really hard sometimes if you don’t have anything to post about. But don’t get upset, just move on. Try to sit down sometime and just brainstorm ideas for posts, so that when you haven’t posted in a while you will have some ideas to post about.

Here are the bloggers I nominate:



A Barefoot Gal

Blog of all Lovely Things

Sonshine Seeker

A Farm Girl’s Life

Simply for One

Sapphire Life Writer



I just put a few nominees, but if you are reading this you are nominated! Love y’all! ❤




Another story

So here is another story. It’s very short, and I wrote it a long time ago from a story starter, so the beginning is not mine. Hope you like it! 🙂 It’s called One of those days


I could tell that it was one of those days. Nothing seemed to go right all day. I was mindlessly sitting at my desk when all of a sudden the classroom door swung open and there appeared a giant jellybean! Can you believe it a giant jellybean! Well, there I was looking up at the monster, I was really scared. Then it began to speak it said, “You come.” I came obediently (because I was afraid if I didn’t I’d be lunch.) Then, he said to follow so I followed. It ended up that the monster was trying to find the entrance. So I said, “The entrance is this way…Johnny.” He finished for me. “Oh, thank you.” He said. We kept on walking.

A little while later he stopped and asked where the nearest bus stop was and I answered, “Um, around the corner I think. Yeah, around the corner.” He just said okay and kept on walking.

I got so curious I asked, “Where are we going?”

“Your house, of course.” Was Johnny’s answer.

“My house? Why, my house is the other way!” I said.

“Well, then, why didn’t you tell me? He asked.

“Well I didn’t know that we were going to my house.” I answered. As we turned around.

I felt really weird walking down the street with a giant jellybean. I looked at my watch it was 3:30pm time to go home any way.

A few minutes later we had got to my house and I told Johnny to go up stairs and I’d go to the kitchen and get a snack for us I made myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and Johnny a just jelly sandwich and I got some chips for me (because he didn’t want any) and went up the stairs and into my room. Johnny was looking around in amazement I guess he had never seen some thing so awesome before.

“Do you like my room?” I asked.

“Yes. I have never seen anything like it before!” Johnny said as I handed him his sandwich.

“Andy what are you doing? And who is he?” His mother said as she entered the room.

“He is my friend Johnny and we are eating the snack that I made for us.” I answered.

“Well, he has got to go. So nice meeting you Johnny but I think it’s time for you to leave. See you another day. Bye.”
