Blogger Recognition Award

Cassi! So many nominations from one of my favourite bloggers!

I’ve explained why I started my blog. I wanted a place to store all my memories and experiences, which I’m still doing now.

My two pieces of advice are this. Number one, use pictures! For me at least, visuals always make a post more appealing. Number two, plan! Planning out your posts helps me a lot with sticking to a regular schedule.
