The Blogger Recognition Award

Hi again everyone! AnonymousA from Caught Daydreaming nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Thank you so much, AnonymousA! :)

(ETA: I don't know why the font won't stay the same throughout the post this time. I'm sorry...:/ )

Here are the directions:
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.

Let's my blog started. I actually had another blog all the way back in 2013, but I quit doing it. That was only an American Girl-focused blog, and I wanted to be able to write about other things too now. I still like AG, but I'm not as 'into' it as I used to be. So, I made this one! As everyone probably knows already, the title is simply a line from Let It Go, and as Elsa is my favorite fictional character the line seemed like a good blog title...that's what it is. I still need to add a custom header!

Two pieces of advice to new bloggers...this blog is still very new, so I don't think I'm an authority on the matter, but I'm going to say this:
1~ Please, please don't put your whole blog's text in some pretty swirly font. Or put super bright colors as a background. Both of these things make it difficult to read and potentially hurt your readers' eyes (at least for me:P)
2~ Do your blog for you! That way even if you don't have a ton of followers, you'll still have fun doing your blog.:)
Break for a Wednesday picture just because.
Okay, time to nominate others!:) Several of these blogs haven't been posted on in ages. If they haven't been posted on since November 2016, I'm not going to go bother the blog authors, lol.:) But here goes, in alphabetical order just because:

I'll end with a picture of this jumper skirt that I absolutely love simply because I want to.:P You can find it here: Sleipnir JSK from Lolitabutiken

I loved reading your answers! I totally agree about the blog design - there are some extremely distracting ones out there. :P But then again, people tell me my design is a little confusing, too, so IDK XD

Thank you SO much for nominating me! You're so kind to think of my blog when doing this award! :D I'm typing up a post in which I *finally* answer the questions to random awards, and I can't wait to do this one!

Thank you for nominating me! It gives me motivation to get a post up.:) I've actually taken pictures for like 3-5 posts in the last few months but I didn't have the energy to sat at the computer for hours to write up the post.:P

Nikki-You're welcome:) I'm looking forward to whatever you do post when you get to it:)
