blogger appreciation award.

The wonderful Steph from Steph's Makeup & Things was kind enough to award me with the Blogger Appreciation Award. Steph posts about life and of course, makeup! You should definitely check out her blog if you get the chance!


Rules:

- Thank the person who gave you the award with their blog link on your post.
- Answer the following 4 questions.
- Award the 'Blogger Appreciation Award' to as many readers/commenters/supporters/followers as you'd like.
- Let the blogger know you have awarded them, either through leaving a comment, a tweet, an email etc.

Questions:

1) How long have you been blogging?
2) What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
3) What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
4) What is the one thing you would like to improve on as a blogger on your blog?

Answers:
1) I began this blog nearly a year ago. I have dabbled in blogging throughout the years, but the creation of beauty is art. is my first real experience blogging on a consistent basis. 

2) I started blogging when I was feeling discouraged by the lack of progress that was happening in my career. All I wanted to do was write, and blogging seemed like the perfect way to satisfy my creative need. My passions are makeup, fashion, music, and books, so I have tried to bring all of those things into this blog in some way.

3) I love following blogs that are related to fashion and beauty. It's so inspiring to see how people put together certain outfits. It allows me to get creative and draw inspiration from the blogs I read. I also have a lot of blogs about writing that I love reading. They inspire me to keep going and pushing for my dreams.

4) I would love to continue to improve upon my blog by taking the layout, etc. to the next level. Beyond that, I just want to really focus on the quality of my content, and reaching as many readers as possible.  

Awarding:
I am fortunate enough to read so many wonderful blogs. Every single blog I look at, teaches me something and expands my horizons. I truly respect everyone in the blogging community. I hope this doesn't sound like a cop out, but I'd like to tag absolutely every single blog I read and comment on with this award. You all inspire me so much. Thank you for everything you do!
