I was nominated for this award by Julia and Kaitlynrh1. Thank you so very much for nominating me!! And check out Julia’s blogs: Julia’s Journal and The Joys Of Julia, and Kaitlynrh1’s blogs: Paws All In and Kait’s AG Crafts
On a side note: neither Julia nor Kaitlynrh1’s blogs had the blogger recognition award picture on them, so instead of ‘borrowing’ the picture from another blog, I just made my own.
Why I started this blog:
When I was eight or nine my sister had a blog, and I wanted one. (I don’t remember why) My mom helped me set up a blog for my guinea pigs, which I named Guinea Pig Stars, or Star Guinea Pigs, I don’t really remember which. When I started to get into dolls I changed the name to Creative Castle, (The domain name was Modern English 2) and used it for my mini doll stuff. After awhile I ran out of space to put pictures on, so I started this blog, Dolltasticallyfun. Last fall I started using Creative Castle again, just for words, because I wanted a place to put all my non doll related stuff. I really enjoy Creative Castle as a lifestyle blog now, and Dolltasticallyfun for dolls.
Be unique. Don’t do what other people are doing. It may be fun to read something the first 67 times it’s done, but after awhile it gets old. Do things that you haven’t seen done before. Often you can gain followers that way. When I come across a blog because it has content I’m looking for I’m very likely to keep reading it.
Don’t stress out about how many followers you have. It doesn’t help. You can, however, do things like participate in blog shout outs and comment on other people’s blogs.
