2 Role Models that Inspired me the Most + Nominations

I also wanted to mention 2 people who inspired me the most to set up this Photography blog. My best mate, Rhys Brown inspired me and is always a role model who I can always look up to, as I asked what his thoughts were on creating this photography blog, he thought it was a brilliant idea, and I jumped at this opportunity whilst I still could, and I owe him a massive thank you for inspiring me to create this blog. Without him, I wouldn’t have got this many views in 6 months, and I owe him another massive thank you for it, he will always be one of my best mates no matter what. To follow my best mate Rhys on Twitter, here’s the link: https://twitter.com/TheRealRizzyy

The 2nd and final person who inspired me the most as well was my previous form tutor who I had since I was in Year 9 & Year 10, her name is Zofia Niemtus (though I call her Miss Niemtus as my way of showing her respect) and was a teacher who also inspired me to create this nature blog. I asked Miss Niemtus a month before she left my school to work elsewhere whether she thought it was a good idea to create a blog, and she also thought it was a brilliant idea too, so I created this blog, and over the course of June Miss Niemtus asked me to send the link of this blog to her so she could present it to everyone in my form class. I was like a bag of nerves when she mentioned my blog to everyone, as I was worried to how my friends would react, but the overall outcome of my old form tutor was positive as everyone thought this blog was really good.

Overall, I would love to say a massive thank you to these 2 people for inspiring me the most, without them, this blog wouldn’t be in existence, but I’m absolutely thankful my best mate Rhys and also my old form tutor Miss Niemtus got me this far, they have inspired me to do more, and they both deserve the best. Thanks guys, and have a very Happy Christmas :-)!!!

Here is another blog post morsel for you to digest :-)!!!


As these first 6 months have been perfect for this blog, along with my 2 role models who inspired me the most to create this blog, I wanted to create a follow-up and also wanted to take the opportunity to nominate 3 bloggers for the Blog of the Year 2013 award.

The 3 people I have nominated for this award are:

1. Vijay Shah of HalfEatenMind: Vijay is a great blogging friend and also a fantastic blogger. Occasionally I keep Vijay up-to-date on the latest blog posts I’ve published so I’m absolutely sure Vijay never misses out on the latest blog posts. The blog, HalfEatenMind is based around all the current affairs, life and also a timeline of events that are currently occuring now. The overall outcome?? Vijay make sure his posts are always effective, and makes sure every post is perfect. Vijay deserves a nomination for the Blog of the Year 2013 award, as he as inspired me to make my blog better in many different ways, and in effect, Vijay has a fantastic blog.

2. Petrel41 (Kitty) of Dear Kitty. Some Blog.: Petrel41 is also a great blogging friend, as her blog is all based around the wide arrays of life, and every blog post she publishes talks about something that is new, something different and also something interesting. Every blog post goes in-depth, as Kitty wants to make sure her posts are effective and fresh to read new. The overall outcome?? The blog is very descriptive and is also a lot more different, as it focuses more on almost everything. Petrel41 also deserves a nomination for the Blog of the Year 2013 award as she has also inspired me to make my blog even better, and the overall finish is that her blog is also fantastic.

3. Ajay of Ajaytao2010 | My Personal Opening to the World: …and finally, Ajay is a great blogging friend who, instead of making a blog post big and effective, always keeps his blog posts short, using a wide array of different quotes for every photo he takes, and also makes sure every small blog post is always effective and suitable to anyones standard. Overall, I found this blog to be really interesting, as Ajay’s blog is more on the wild side, he loves to show his own personal openings with the world. He creates more of a substantial effect in every short blog post he creates, and is always making sure the photos he takes are perfectly immaculate with every single pixel and detail. Ajay loves to aim for the perfect, final finish. Ajay also deserves a nomination for the Blog of the Year 2013 award as he also inspired me to make my blog tidier, effective and more detail, and the overall outcome of his blog is also fantastic. To visit Ajay’s blog, Ajaytao2010 | My Personal Opening to the World, here’s the link: http://ajaytao2010.wordpress.com/

To finish, I want to say that these 3 bloggers I have nominated deserve to win the Blog of the Year 2013 award for all their hard work, and contributions to their own blogs. I recommend having a look at all 3 blogs, as Vijay, Petrel41 and Ajay love to keep their blogs looking fresh, new and different to make you feel comfortable at ease.

Thank you for reading, and on that final note to round off 2013, have a very Happy Christmas!!!!!!!!!!

Check back on the 1st January 2014 for the new Twenty Fourteen blog layout :-)!!!!!!!!!
