I was very chuffed and just a little bit excited to be nominated for a Blogger Recognition Award by Tracey who writes at The Anxious Dragon.
Tracey herself has not been blogging very long but you would never believe that from her blog. I have seen some really interesting and helpful posts on Tracey’s blog and I love the way she writes and her humour.
This is the first of any such nominations that I have received since starting my blog in May so thanks Tracey, a lovely surprise.
Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Write a post to show your award.
Attach the award to the post.
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers.
Select up to 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.
Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them & provide a link to the award post you created (you cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you).
So without further ado and whilst feeling very shiny and special, I shall get on with the question in hand.
How My Blog Started
I’ve always loved to write whether it be observational, practical or to record special moments. Generally, I have quite a lot to say and I love a great debate so I tend to write a lot of this down too. I love a notebook and always like to carry one with me for this very reason. Blogging seemed like the perfect next step and a way to indulge my passion a little further. I was a little slow in getting my blog started Me and Blogging but I have enjoyed every minute of the journey so far. I love to read what others have to say and the different perspectives and ideas that are shared through the blogging community. I am constantly learning and having new ideas about how my blog will evolve.
Give a piece of advice (or two) to new bloggers
I’m still quite new to the party myself but my advice is to remember why you are blogging and why you find it so enjoyable. There will be times when you will be able to write easily and others when you are lost for words. Panic not – it passes! Try not to compare yourself to others which can be difficult when you first start. You will quickly realise there is nothing to be gained from doing so. Your blog will not float everyone’s boat in the same way that some won’t float yours. Blogging allows the freedom of choice which is another fabulous thing about it!
I have nominated the bloggers below as they are the ones that I have really enjoyed reading so far in my short time in the blogging sphere. Some of the more experienced bloggers will have already done this a million times over in which case – no need to do it again! It’s more of a shout out really to some great bloggers.
I have really enjoyed reading your blogs and look forward to hearing your stories.
