This is the first time I’ve heard of this award, so I’ve had to do some research on it! It was a lovely surprise having been nominated by FindingMyselfInWonderland, you can find her blog here. Sorry its taken me so long to get round to completing it but I’ve been very busy recently (I’ll explain later) but here it is.
So what I gather is there isn’t any limit of followers or anything for the blogs you can nominate, just the top ten you love. You also have to share the reason why you started blogging, so here goes…
Why I Started Blogging
During my last year of college I had decided I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted to be a writer, but I didn’t feel I was ready to move to the other end of the country to spend loads of money on a degree and not enjoy myself doing it. I’m a very family orientated person, so moving to Blackpool from Shropshire seemed like too far a journey for me.
So I decided I would take a year off from heavy learning. The first few months of having time off were great, I could sleep in, I got loads of my book written, I had all day to play the sims or see my friends, it was great, until the child benefit ran out in the September.

It was around this time I started suffering from insomnia, a lot of things were going on around that time and it seemed the only time my brain would deal with them is when I wanted to sleep. So one night as I lay tossing a turning, I got up and starting blogging. At first I decided to blog my gap year, and trying to find a job. But the. When I got a full time job, I tried really hard to keep up the blogging, but I’d be working all day and a lot of stuff was happening in my personal time too.
But now I’m in a better place, my insomnia has settled down that I can now sleep a decent amount of hours each night and I’m better for it. So I’ve decided to turn my blog into mainly book reviews with the occasional ramblings of things I come across.
