3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge: Day 1

Hi, everyone! 🙂

I’ve been nominated for the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge. Since I love quotes, I’m quite excited about this challenge. 

Before I start, I would like to thank Nazmin for the nomination. If you like posts that are creative and inspiring, then you should visit her blog. 😀

Today’s Quote: 

Why I love this quote? 
Marilyn Monroe always went after what she wanted. Of course, she was very successful in her career, but some people envied her success and despised her for it. From my personal experiences, I can say that envy is something that can kill you. I’ve seen envious people pull other successful people down just so they can feel better about themselves.
Sad, isn’t it? I’m not the kind of person who gets jealous of someone else’s achievements, in fact, I celebrate along with them. If people started appreciating other’s on their success rather than hating them for it, the world would be a happier place. 🙂

Honestly, I don’t know who to nominate for this challenge. If any of you are interested in doing the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge, feel free to let me know in the comments section below!

The Blogger Recognition Award

Hi, everyone! 🙂

I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award.

Before I start, I would like to thank Sadaptation for nominating me. You should visit her blog because she posts some pretty creative and interesting articles. 😀


  1. Write a post to show your award.
  2. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
  3. Give a brief story of how you started your blog.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Nominate 15 bloggers who deserve the award.

How did I start my blog?

Well, to be honest, it was a decision that I made after a lot of self-debate. Even though I had an interest in blogging, there was something holding me back and that something was fear. I was confused, to say the least. I kept asking myself questions like:
Where should I start?
What should I write about?
Will people like my blog? and so on.
Sooner or later, I realized that I had to stop being such a wimp and just go for it. Maybe, it was my sudden surge of confidence that motivated me to start ‘The Jouska’ blog. I’m glad that I made that choice because I really enjoy being in the blogging community now. Also, I’m not very chatty in the real world, so having a blog gives me a way to express myself freely without any judgement.

My advice to new bloggers:

  1. Never be afraid of the outcome:
    I know it’s hard to start something you’ve never done before. It’s scary. However, when it comes to blogging, don’t be afraid of what others think of your blog. You are the creator of your blog and there’s no one to stop you. Maybe your blog won’t do very well in the initial stage, but trust me, it will get better with time. Anyway, my point is, fear is your worst enemy so don’t let that get to you. Don’t think about what other people have to say, always be confident and sure of what you do.
  2. Be consistent:
    Always make it a point to post as regularly as possible. If it’s difficult for you to post something new every day, then follow a consistent timetable. I’ve seen bloggers come and go because they get bored of their blog and end up deleting it. Remember one thing, your hard work will pay-off in the end. 🙂

*Drum Roll Please* I would like to nominate the following bloggers:

I hope that my piece of advice helps you find your way in the blogging community.
Congrats to all the nominees! I’m looking forward to reading your answers.

Bear hugs for all of you

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 

It has been a few months since I joined the blogging community, and I’m glad I made that choice. I’ve always wanted to start my own blog, but I was never motivated to take a step. Sooner or later, I realized that I had to overcome my fears and just do it. 🙂

Blogging has helped me connect with different bloggers from all over the world, which indeed has enhanced my knowledge and exposure to new ideas. 

Anyhow, I would like to thank each and every one of my readers, you guys are amazing. Your comments and thoughts mean so much to me, really. You are the reason behind my motivation to post something new every day. 🙂

I really appreciate your support and I love you all!
