I was recently nominated by the lovely Brunette Bargainista for the Liebster Award, which is a way to support and get to know fellow/new bloggers. To give you all a little background, this award is given only to new bloggers who are just starting their following. Once a blogger is nominated, they are asked to answer the 11 questions that the nominating blogger has chosen. Then, the nominated blogger is asked to nominate other NEW bloggers. Love this idea and it really helped me find new, beautiful blogs!
First of all, I am in such an early stage of this blogging process and I am incredibly flattered that I am being recognized by my peers. Thank you! The endless encouragement from fellow bloggers and my early-stage followers has been so wonderful. Blogging is such a great way for me to express my interests as well as meet others who share in those interests. So once again, thank you!
So here are my 11 answers to Brunette Bargainista’s 11 questions!
1. How did you get into blogging?
I am a former broadcast journalist so it feels so natural for me to write. I started my first blog back in October of 2014 (South Dakota on Purpose) as a place for me to write about what is going on in my life as well as a way for me to continue to be a journalist in my community. I have always loved fashion and all things girly so I started Midwest In Style. I continue to learn more about what it means to be an effective/innovative/creative blogger and it has been such a fun experience!
