Its been years since I’ve been nominated for an award and to be completely honest, I got SO excited when I got the notification. Scribbles nominated me for this and I say this from personal experience – she’s an awesome person and I strongly believe that everyone should get to know her and PLEASE GO CHECK OUT HER BLOG BECAUSE SHE’S WRITES AMAZINGLY WELL AND IS GOING PLACES FOR SURE

So here’s my story – If anyone has ever paid attention to my blog’s URL, you would notice that it has the number 13 in it. And that is my story. I started this blog when I was a baby only because my best friend had one and she’s a brilliant writer and I was really excited about the idea. I remember it was back in the 9th grade and the only people who ever gave it the time of day were my parents, my best friend and my brother.
I’m proud to say that I’ve come a long way and met amazing people along the way and I’m hopeful this continues for a while!
My advice to new comers is super simple:
- Never forget that you’re doing this for yourself, and no one else.
- Dont worry too much about your content – when you’re in it, everything will work out fine.
Here’s my nominations!
- Thoughtless Musings

How my blog started:
I started this blog back in 2010, when I was thirteen. Thus its name earlier was shivani13’s blog (a very, very, very obvious rip off of my best friend’s blog at the time). In all honesty, my earlier posts when I had just started out weren’t exactly good I’d say. They were quite random, and also quite long.
My blog’s never really had a theme, and probably never will. I think the best part about writing here is that no one that I know personally ever reads anything here which gives me complete freedom to write about anything and everything. I think limiting myself to a theme would pose quite a few hurdles, and thus I freestyle and write about whatever inspires me the most at that time – Books, movies, some exciting life event.
Its been seven years and I’ve to say I’m quite happy with how far I’ve come. I can write MUCH better than I did back when I was thirteen and I think writing here as been a huge part of my teenage years and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
My advice to people just starting out would be;
- Write about whatever YOU want – this means and includes you wanting to write a long essay on why you love pizza. Writing about what you want to write about is exactly how you’ll keep on writing.
- Don’t stress about the fact that you don’t have followers, writing here is for you and not necessarily for tons of people to read. Down the line, you will definitely end up with loads of followers because you’ll clearly be great at this blog writing thing.
