I am happy to announce that I was given the Blogger Recognition Award from my close friend and fellow blogger, Courtney Baker, creator of C2: Creatively Courtney. Her blog is a lifestyle blog that covers things like gardening, raising chickens, and theater. Stop on over, I think you’ll enjoy it.
As part of this award there are a few rules that you are to follow when accepting.
Blogger Recognition Award Rules:
- 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 10 other blogs you award to.
How my blog started:
I started a blog because I wanted some experience writing. I decided to do the National Novel Writing Month in November challenge, or NaNoWriMo, and twist it to fit my needs a year or two ago. Instead of writing a 50,000 word novel in the month of November I got done a long list of things I’ve been meaning to do and one of those things included this blog. I didn’t have much writing experience except papers for class and doing my work’s blog, so hopefully as this blog has grown I’ve grown as a writer with it.
Advice to New Bloggers:
Blogging is hard work. Constantly coming up with new and exciting information on a weekly,daily, or monthly basis isn’t easy. So my advice is to always look back and remember why you started your blog in the first place. I personally, think my reasoning for continuing my blog has changed. Instead of needing writing experience, I continue on more for a scrapbook/documentation of my adventures. It’s a reminder to myself and others to “Enjoy the Journey!”
My nominees for this award are:
I love so many blogs that I couldn’t pick. In other words, everyone is nominated!
