One Lovely Blog Award

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

I’ve been nominated by the lovely Janeanna at Beauty and the Flawed for the One Lovely Blog Award! She is one of the sweetest girls and her blog is so interesting. She writes about all things fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. I love how she switches it up and doesn’t define herself by a single niche, it definitely keeps it interesting! So thank you so much sweetie and keep up the good writing. This was a fun award to complete!

The rules:

  • Thank the person that nominated you and leave a link to their blog.
  • Post about the award.
  • Share 7 facts about yourself.
  • Nominate at most 15 people.
  • Tell your nominees the good news!

7 Facts About Me:

  1. I have a strange obsession with floor plans. I geek over them!
  2. My choice of snacks lean more towards salty rather than sweet.
  3. I would really love to move down southwest somewhere, I always have wanted to!
  4. My favorite holiday is Halloween and my least favorite is Christmas. I’m weird, I know!!
  5. When I was young I wanted to be a city planner. (Not quite a princess but I’ll take it.)
  6. My favorite shows to watch are comedies.
  7. I could care less for brand names. If a Louis Vuitton knock off bag looks good, give it to me. I’m not paying full price for the name!

My Nominations:

All of you wonderful bloggers out there! You are all lovely bloggers in my eyes which is why I follow you! I encourage you all to participate in this fun award and let all your readers learn more about you.

Blogger Recognition Award

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

One of the things I love about the blogging community is how everyone builds each other up. It’s such a great thing to see happen, especially with women. Thank you so much Jules at Blonde’s Tea ,  Lean Sixteen , and Brenna at Crochet539 for this amazing award. I love the concept of this award because it acknowledges great bloggers while helping out other bloggers with great advice from a variety of people.

The rules for the Blogger Recognition Award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Write a post to show your award
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  5. Select 15 other bloggers for this award
  6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.

The story of my blog

This may get quite redundant for those who have read my Why I Started Blogging post so I’ll give you the short version here. I had a droning job that required no creativity on my part and as a creative individual I found myself looking for an outlet. I’ve never been one for the camera but have always enjoyed writing so blogging seemed like the perfect outlet!

Advice for new bloggers

  1. Interaction. It seems silly or time not well spent but I promise it makes a huge difference. Liking and commenting on other bloggers posts will help you build a strong community with those in your niche. Making connections and friendships will really help you build your blog and you’ll meet so many great people from around the world.
  2. Natural Lighting. For pictures, no matter what camera you are using, the lighting is the key to good photography. Make sure you plan out when you’re taking pictures so you can best utilize the natural lighting.

2.      Simply Caylee

3.      Blush Stops Here
