Blog Award

Showing Appreciation

Thanks to Ms. Kayleigh of Kayleigh Jean I have been awarded my very first blog award - the Blogger Appreciation Award. I am so grateful that I have been honored with this award by a fellow jewelry maker and fashion enthusiast. When you get the chance please do check out her blog.  

- Thank the person who nominated you by linking his/her blog.
- Answer the following 4 questions.
- Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to fellow bloggers.
- Let the Bloggers know that you have nominated them.

- How long have you been blogging for?
I have been blogging for almost a year and a half.   

- Why did you start blogging?
Initially, I wanted to find a way to empower women; I wanted to reach as many people as I could to talk about women's issues that are talked about rarely or only in the privacy of our homes. I thought, "what better way to do that than by starting a blog, where I could reach people from all around the world." Afterwards, I realized that there was so much more I wanted to share.  I wanted to share my opinion on fashion, beauty, culture, and life in general.    

- What type of blogs do you like to follow/read?
Since, I have a wide range of interests, I follow an array of blogs ranging from: fashion, beading, jewelry, arts & crafts, health, literature, etc. I tend to follow blogs that talk about the stuff I talk about, here on Belladonna.  

- What is the one thing you'd like to improve on as a blogger?
As an author of two blogs - Belladonna & Pure Love - I have double the trouble of trying to write frequently and keeping my readers interested. Consequently, I would like to work on blogging more frequently.

I would like to thank all my followers/ readers, especially those that are actively involved in sharing their opinions and opening an avenue for discussion. While, this award is meant to show appreciation for my blog, I would like to show my appreciation to you - my fellow bloggers, my followers, my readers, my Belladonna's. I genuinely appreciate you and your positive feedback that you all give so frequently. 

Thank you!

    1. Désolé. Je ne savais pas que vous ne pouvait pas parler anglais. Mon français est mauvais, mais je vais essayer de mon mieux à l'avenir quand je poster des commentaires sur votre blog .... J'ai écrit ce avec l'aide d'un dictionnaire, donc encore une fois je m'excuse si ce que je dis n'a pas de sens pour vous .

  3. Thank you very much. We are very glad about it! We will try to follow the rules as soon as possible!
