Blogger Recognition Award | #Blogmas day 8



I was tagged by the lovely Christine from Glamour With Christine to take part in the 'Blogger Recognition Award'. I love Christine's blog, make sure you check it out and subscribe! You can also find Christine on Twitter 


Here are some deets about the award:

The Blogger Recognition Award is an award from bloggers to bloggers. This award lets bloggers know that their hard work, long hours and constant evolution of their content is not going unnoticed.

The rules:


  • Thank the blogger that nominated you.
  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started. 
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Select 15 bloggers you want to give this award to.
  • let the bloggers know that you've nominated them and provide the link to the post.

How did 'Caledonian Kitty' begin:

I've always been a lover of makeup, pampering products and I'm a real shopaholic. I first started my blog a few years ago but deleted it and took some time away from blogging. Since last year I've been back into it and enjoying it again. As well as lifestyle and beauty posts, I include a lot more personal posts and share experiences as well as mental health support and tips. I really like how my blog is going at the moment and I've had some lovely comments and messages from both men and women on how my experiences have struck a cord with them and helped them in some way. 

Advice for new bloggers:

Make sure your blog is original and exactly how you want it. Don't listen to people who tell you what you should and shouldn't write about or how many times a week you should post. Be very careful with brands and PRs who try to get you to work and promote their products for nothing, you'll get used to getting these types of emails. Try and avoid any negativity as much as possible, sometimes the blogging community can be quite toxic, when you see stuff like that going on just log out of your computer and keep away from it.

I've probably given more that two pieces of advice here but what the heck (it is the festive season after all) don't be afraid of a little self promotion, keep sharing your blog, make good use of hashtags and retweet accounts. 

My nominees:

I don't want to come across as a stick in the mud, I would love to nominate 15 people but whenever I do a tag and nominate people the majority never seem to do it lol! I'm sure they have their reasons and that's fine, not every blogger enjoys doing tags. So, to make sure I'm not leaving anybody out because there's so many bloggers that I'm loving right now, I'm going to bend the rules a bit (always a rebel lol) and nominate anyone who would like to do this tag, That way nobody feels the pressure of having to do it.

Anyway, thanks again to the fabulous Christine for the nomination and if you do decide to do this post, tag me on @CaledonianTweet or @TheBloggersPost and I'll have a good read of your post and be happy to share it on Twitter.


See you in my next #Blogmas post x
