Blogger Appreciation Award Tag

Confession: I've never done any Blogger Award before.

As much as I truly appreciate the gesture and the awards, let's face it, the tasks is sometimes too complicated. By the way, saying I received an 'award' sounds awkwardly overstate in my head, as if I'm doing something big here. I'm just gonna call it a tag. Ahaha... However this tag caught my attention because there aren't many questions and the questions are blogging-related. That's a topic I always like.

So thank you Stephanie, Monica and Felicia for tagging me. Don't forget to drop by at their blogs as well.

1. Thank The person who have you the award with their blog link on your post.
2. Answer the following 4 questions.
3. Award the blogger appreciation award as many readers/commenters/followers as you'd like.
4. Let the blogger know you've just awarded them (by leaving a comment/email/tweet/etc).

The Questions:
1. How long have you been blogging?
2. What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
3. What types of blog do you like to follow/read?
4. What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?

How long have you been blogging? 
 I’ve been blogging in my beauty blog for three years now. But I’ve been blogging in general since 2008. 

What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging?
It all started with a series of diary when I was in sixth grade. I guess I must admit that I like pouring everything that’s going on in my mind into an essay. I always have opinions about everything but I’m not an outspoken person. That’s when a pen and a piece of paper become handy. Or I should say now, a keyboard and a blog page.

I used to blog about my life and my ideas about everything. And then I realized, nothing in my life is interesting enough that would attract people to come and read my blog. However, beauty blog and video were very ‘in’ back then. And I was just started doing makeup. That’s when it hits me: I’ll just write beauty articles!

Anyway, if you’re interested, here’s the link to my old blog.

What types of blog do you like to follow/read?
Until now I only follow beauty blogs.

What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?
There are many things I need to improve. First of all would be the design of my blog. I love blogging but I am not a hi-tech person. I hate dealing with complicated codes in my website. So as you can see, the result is a super simple and forgettable layout. Ugh!

Another thing is to write carefully in the right manner. I wish I could be more attentive. I am not a patient person so I tend to just speedily write and then publish the article without proof-reading it. And the result is, most of a time, a piece of article loaded with typos. And I *always* find them after I published my piece.

Last thing I could think of right now that needs improvement would be how to write grammatically appropriate.

Okay, that was fun. After all, digging up stories behind someone's blog is always fun, yeah? I know this tag has been going around and everybody has done it but I would like to know the about my sister's blog at peachysweetness and my friend, Hanny, at thestoryofbipolarcoffeejunkie.
