I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award.
First and foremost, Id like to thank The Jouska for nominating me for this award. (Gif)
She’s one of the first bloggers I connected with when I started my blog. I’d also like to take the opportunity to congratulate her on an impressive site. Sometimes witty, sometimes sincere- always a good read!
- Write a post to show your award.
- Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you.
- Give a brief story of how you started your blog.
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
- Nominate 15 bloggers who deserve the award.
I write. I read. And I eat a crazy amount of chocolate. I started my blog in hopes of connecting with others who had similar interests. Folks that like to laugh, and hang out in the kitchen are my favorite kind of people. And I’ve had the pleasure to meet so many of them!
As I’ve only been at blogging for a few months, I’m surely not the one to lend the most expert advice.
Be genuine. As a newbie, it’s so easy to look at other successful blogs, and think, wow. Now that blogger really has it together….maybe my blog should look more like that one? NO, of course it shouldn’t. That would get boring really fast. Sure, it’s okay to get inspired by a great blogger, but be yourself. Develop a style and a voice that’s all your own, and readers will love you, uniquely, for it!
Even if you have a goofy sense of humor, and an insatiable hunger for chocolate.☺️ (And this is where I give a warm thanks to my readers! ❤️)
Secondly, pay it forward when you can. Like someone’s post? Let them know. Everyone can use the feedback, and interacting with each other is the whole idea.
And now, my favorite part- announcing the nominees.
