I am truly honored and grateful to have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award! Since I started my blog a year and a half ago, I have received lots of support from blogging communities on several social media platforms. It is both encouraging and inspiring. I have written on a variety of topics and so far this has served me well. I am what they call a “nicheless blogger” and I like that because I don’t limit myself to what I want to write about. The sky’s the limit! The idea of writing a blog came to me from a friend of mine who at the time understood my desire to convey my thoughts, opinions and ideas in a format that is suitable for my needs. I work full-time and I am a busy mom of 2, so blogging seemed to be the perfect outlet for my creativity without sacrificing flexibility and openness.
I wish to give special thanks to Sunny Larue who nominated me and whose generosity of spirit is boundless. Thank-you so much for always being in my corner, Sunny. The feeling is mutual!! You can check out her blog at: https://sunnylarue17.com.
For anyone who is starting out or is thinking about becoming a blogger, here are my 2 pieces of advice:
-Research before embarking on this journey. Find out if this is truly for you. What topics interest you? Get info about promoting your blog, increasing traffic etc. even though these may not be a concern at the beginning. Give yourself the time to explore.
– Write, write, and write some more. If you are passionate about your craft, don’t give up when you feel uninspired. Give yourself a break from time to time. Write when the moment is right for you. Discipline will come. The important thng is to start, then it will all flow from there.
Now it’s my turn to nominate 10 bloggers who in my opinion deserve to be praised for their great work and whose pieces have either enlightened me or impacted me on some level. They are:
