The Blogger Recognition Award

I have been awarded by the ever so lovely Jollygirl with the Blogger Recognition Award. :)

rules and regulations:

+ Select 15 blogs to nominate.
+ Thank the person who nominated you, and give a brief story of how your blog got started and a piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
+ Attach the award itself!
+ Comment on each nominee's blog and let them know that you've nominated them.
+ Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night.

How My Blog Got Started:

Well, at the time of building this site, my first blog, Loving Your American Girl Doll, had become unfulfilling for me. I didn't enjoy posting and it basically just stressed me out. So out of nowhere I decided to build and design this blog--originally a Dancer's Pointe, sometime in November of 2012 (November 11th, to be sort of exact). It was just a hobby blog until a few months later, when I decided to hunker down and post often. I wanted to share my writings, and have an influential blog with content that made me happy. :)

Advice for new bloggers:

Always always always write for yourself. Don't ever compare yourself to bigger blogs and better writers. Doing that will just discourage you from doing something you love to do--whether it be expressing yourself or typing out your feelings. You want to be happy with the content you are posting, so don't care what anyone else thinks. Just continue blogging about what makes you happy. :)

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?



Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…

Here are some tips to help you manage your time (whether it be for blogging or anything else). :)


Being productive can be hard, especially when you have too many things balanced on your plate. Most of the time, you don’t know where to start.
