I am super excited about this post…
A couple of weeks ago I received an email that AngelUnique received an award. The Blogger Recognition Award! This is such a fantastic initiative for bloggers to bond and share the love they have for blogging and speaking their mind.
let me tell you guys one thing… AngelUnique is HARD work, but good things never come easy. I am not really a “Good Writer” – not that I think you get “Perfect Writer”. I speak my mind and believe me, it takes a lot of effort to take my scatter brain and put all my thoughts into one blogpost at a time. What makes it even more challenging is the fact that I am actually Afrikaans…Eish.
I started off as an ACTIVE instagramer ( You can follow me HERE). Posting at least once a day – I’m still an Instagram addict. It all started when I posted a photo of me in a bikini and got asked where I bought it. A bikini compay, Lush, contacted me to send me a bikini so my followers would ask where I got it and send them to their page. It flourished from there… I got so many requests from amazing companies that I started spaming people’s feed with photos of the goods I received… so much so that I was almost forced to create a blog – Instagram only allows you to write THAT much, you know.
It was the best decision I made. I now have a passion for blogging and love supporting other bloggers. Blogging actually helped me in my studies too… I read a lot more and we all know the saying “Knowledge is power.”.
My advice to aspiring bloggers… Be true to yourself! Don’t try and copy any blogger’s work – it only takes away from your uniqueness and it is just unethical. If you do get the amazing opportunity of collaborating with a brand, give your honest opinion. You don’t want to come across as a salesman trying to reach his monthly goal…You are a BLOGGER.
