The 2016/2017 Tag

tagged.png

Today is the day I am doing a tag again. Seriously I haven’t done one in ages. The tag I will be doing is the 2016/2017 tag which was created by #theguhwhosaidalwaysno (his name reminds me of one of my friends. His favourite word is no and he even writes it all over my paper quite a lot). I was nominated by the lovely Annie.

Now lets start:

The rules:

-Mention the creator of the TAG

-Use the image that you find in this article

-Answer the questions given

-Mention the blogger who nominated you

-Mention 9 bloggers/friends and let them know through a comment on their blog

The Questions:

Describe your 2016 in three words

creative, memorable and exhausting

Write the names of two people that have characterised your 2016

I can’t really think of any names, to be honest.

Write the most beautiful place you’ve visited in 2016 and why you liked it so much

The Alps. I went hiking in the Alps with school for a week and it was so much fun. The landscapes and the sunsets up on the hill were beautiful. I’ve made some really good memories with my friends and I am proud for doing it, which made the Alps even more of a beautiful place.

Write the most delicious food you’ve tasted in 2016

That is a hard question because I LOVE FOOD. I basically eat all day but one is for sure. I did not taste the most delicious food during my vacation in Wales. I am sorry but I didn’t like the food we got there at all.

Write the event which has marked you more of this in 2016 (even global event)

I had to do an internship for school in February and I did it at a magazine. During that internship, I noticed how much I love writing and how much I miss blogging like I did during my exchange year so I went home and created this blog.

Write the finest purchase you made in this 2016, and if you want to link a photo.

I don’t think I purchased anything special in 2016. At least I can’t think of anything right now.

Write three good intentions for this 2017.

I want to apply for this program to go to Africa in 2018 and do voluntary work there. This is not really an intention but I want all of my friends to graduate with the grades they want and last I want to keep blogging and grow my blog.

Write one place you want to visit in 2017

There are so many places I want to visit but I know I won’t get to go to any of them in 2017. The place I want to go to the most is Utah because I want to go back and visit my host family

Write one plate/food you want to eat in 2017

I really want to try Thüringer Klöse.

I guess this is it for the questions here are my nominations:

  1. Elm
  2. L
  3. Sav
  4. Hideawaygirl
  5. Iridescence
  6. Kate

Those are only six but if you turn the six around you’ll get nine and I can’t think of any more people right now. If you want to do the tag and you are not one of those six feel free to be one of my three left nominations.

Lots of Love

The Blog Filled With Thoughts Awards

Awards.jpg

2016 is almost over and I am close to hitting the first anniversary of this blog. I have accomplished quite a lot in these past months. I just hit 500 followers, have almost 10 000 all-time views and had almost 4 000 visitors on my blog. I can’t tell you how thankful I am for that and of course I couldn’t have reached any of this without you guys. This is why I created the Blog Filled With Thoughts Awards, which purpose it is to thank all of you and hand over an imaginary award, that I made up, to some special bloggers around the blogosphere.

My first Follower

The first person to follow this blog was Elm and I couldn’t thank her more. I remember emailing her a couple of times asking her for advice because I had no clue what I was doing and she was generous enough to reply. She helped me and made me feel important because she was and still is one of my heroes. I was dying to read ever single word she wrote and I still am.

First person to comment

The first person to comment was also Elm. She also holds the record for most comments with 48 comments. She always knows what to say and she is always there to cheer me and everyone else up.

First like

The first person to like any of my posts was Em is lost and I remember freaking out about her liking my post because I never thought someone would find my little corner on the Internet. Last summer Em and I did a swap box which was so much fun.

First blogger to do a collaboration with me

The first blogger I collaborated with was Hideawaygirl. We both did a guest post on each other’s blogs and I had no idea what that was. Hideawaygirl was nice enough to explain the concept to me and to answer my questions which must have been really stupid.

First blogger I skyped with

I only skyped with a fellow blogger once and it was with Annoymousblog. We talked and did a voice recording together, which was a lot of fun. I am not sure what we talked about in the recording and I don’t dare to listen to it again because I am 100% sure it will be embarrassing.

Most comments

  1. Elm (48)
  2. Regina5000 from diversion3000.wordpress.com (34)
  3. Evie from lettersfromabrokenperson.wordpress.com (28)

Other Bloggers who definitely deserve to get an award for being who they are and for helping/dealing with me all the time

20161226_224735000_iOS.jpgThank you (or as we say in Germany: vielen Dank) guys for following, reading, commenting and all the wonderful things you do. I wouldn’t be here without you. I hope you will have a wonderful time in 2017 and all the other years to come.

Lots of Love

My Favorite Blogging Tools

I am really excited for today’s post because I finally get to participate in the Ultimate Blogging Challenge, which was created by the amazing Caitlin from A Little Daydreamer. Today’s (Day4) challenge is:

The topic for today is “recommendations”. Now for this, you can recommend 
anything from beauty products that you love, books you’ve enjoyed, 
music artists/songs that you’ve recently discovered, a place you’ve visited…  
You could even recommend another blog that you enjoy reading. 

As ever, the options are unlimited.:)

Now here is what I chose to recommend you:

My Favorite Blogging Tools.jpg

Canva

Canva is a website which lets you design our own designs. There are tutorials on how to do it and most of it is free. There are a lot of different fonts, pictures, cute illustrations, and you can upload your own images. I use Canva for all my featured images and it is so much fun to use it. I am obsessed with it

PicMonkey

PicMonkey is a website to edit your pictures. The best part about it is, that it is free and easy to use.

Grammarly

The last tool I use for blogging is called Grammarly. It is free for most browsers and corrects spelling and grammar mistakes. I am still learning English and I want to have the least amount of language mistakes in my posts. Grammarly helps me with that. It corrects my posts, tweets and much more.


Are there any websites you use for blogging that you can recommend me? I would love to try them.

Lots of Love
