Blogger Recognition Award!

Hello everyone! Rae tagged me with the Blogger Recognition Award!


Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Tell a little bit about how you started blogging.
Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.
Nominate 15 other bloggers.

Thank you, Rae. :)

For a very long while I've wanted to start a blog, but I always hesitated, not knowing if I should. What if nobody read my blog? What if I couldn't write about anything interesting?
But then my sisters started a blog ( Rachel and Ruth ) and that gave me the little ''push'' I needed. And then the name. I always have trouble coming op with names. Like titles for my stories and blog posts and ideas ... But anyway, after some thought I decided I'd call it 'It's a Wonderful Life'.  I read a book ( a Dutch book, but it was about America and it was great, with vintage cars and dresses and a little teashop and quotes, and the girl was my age ) with that title. I know there is a movie with the same title, but I haven't watched that one ... yet. :)
And Life is wonderful. Right?
And now I have this blog since August. Two months. Wow, that is actually not very much, thinking about it.
But that was the story of my blog and how it started.

Now the two pieces of advice. I'll try, but since I am actually still a 'new blogger' too, I don't know if I'll give any valuable advice, but I'll write from what I think I should keep doing. :)
1.) Just don't give up. Even if nobody reads your blogposts. Don't quit.
2.) Actually my sister gave me this advice, but: If you comment and/or follow other blogs, there will be a bigger change that other people also start following and commenting you own blog.

Nominate 15 other bloggers? I don't follow so many. Or even know so many.
What must I do?!

I hope it's okay if I don't reach the number fifteen, but just name everyone I know.

And just anyone who wants to do this too and hasn't been tagged yet. I hope that does count! I would tag Rae to, but since she already was tagged and tagged me, I don't know if that counts.

Thanks again!


My favourite version of Emma :)


  1. Awesome! You're welcome. :)
    2 months? Nice. :) Keep on going, because I love your posts!

  2. I am glad you made that blog after all, because I enjoy reading your posts :) and I am glad you didn't quit.
    That's a good advice, by the way! Don't quit. I didn't think of that when I gave some advices :)
