  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
  6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them & provide the link to the post you created.

Pirate Code #1 ⚔️☠️⚔️

THANK YOU AGAIN!!!! Her blog and Twitter are listed above. Be good pirates and go follow her.

Pirate Code #2 ⚔️☠️⚔️

This entire thing is the post, so I think we can all agree that the code has been rightly honored in that aspect. Pirate Code really is more a set of guidelines than rules, so I think we’re okay.

Pirate Code #3 ⚔️☠️⚔️

I started this blog in January 2017. I had been considering writing a blog for a while, but never did. I was afraid, and stressed, and really didn’t know what I wanted to write about, frankly. But, after being involved in the #bookstagram community for a few months, I decided a blog reviewing books and talking about writing was a perfect fit. I’ve loved every minute so far!

Pirate Code #4 ⚔️☠️⚔️

My first piece of advice to new pirates, is BE YOURSELF! There are a ton of posts about how to blog. Really, people have “should” posts on everything. There really is no right or wrong way to blog. If you review books, let your personality shine through. If you like meme’s and gif’s, USE THEM! Animate, or don’t. Write short reviews, long reviews, fangirl your heart out. This is your little piece of the internet. Don’t let others tell you what that space should look like.

Second, put yourself out there! Put your links in follow trains. Follow blogs you love and comment. DM people when you have questions, or when you just want to say hello. The internet can be lonely. BUT! It can also be an amazing place filled with YOUR CREW! Pirates traveled from all over the world, joined crews they never knew before. The Internet is the new high seas. Find your crew and SAIL!!!

Pirate Code #5 ⚔️☠️⚔️

OK, I am going to try and tag 15 bloggers. Remember, the code is a GUIDELINE, so I won’t be walking the plank if I don’t reach the 15

  1. I totally agree about getting your name out there! I started my blog 4 years ago but it’s hard to tell as I don’t have the typical 4 years worth of followers, as in the early days I just blogged. That was it. No twitter, no commenting on other blogs. Nothing. Big mistake on my part so I’m trying to make up for it now haha


  2. I completely agree that you should be yourself when you blog. When I first started, I would look at what other people did and try to mimic their style but it got tiring real fast. Now I’m blogging however the hell I want because it’s me lol!! Lovely post! xx
