I always get the warm, fuzzy feels whenever I am nominated for a blogging award. It’s that pat on the back that you don’t expect to get, but sure feels nice when you do. So a big thanks to Evgenia from Living on Annette for nominating me for the Bloggers Recognition Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize bloggers, give them encouragement and motivation to continue blogging, and basically just let them know that they are loved and appreciated.
- Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
- Write a post and give a brief story of how your blog started
- Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers
- Select 15 other blogs you want to nominate for the award
- Let the nominees know you have nominated them and provide a link to the nomination details
I started this blog as just a place to store my holiday treats recipes to share with my family, because they would always ask for them. I didn’t plan to open my blog up to the entire internet, so you can see my first few entries are just straight recipes. But with a little nudge, and words of encouragement from my sister-in-law, I decided to give blogging my recipes a try.
I still consider myself new to blogging, but if I had to give some advice to others it would be not to be discouraged easily by blogging numbers. For some, it’s the number of followers you have. For others it’s the quantity of posts you put out. I have a little over 100 followers, but to me they are they best community of friends to have. Sure it would be nice to have more followers. But I get enough support and encouragement from my followers that I do not feel a hole in my heart because I don’t have more.
I’m supposed to nominate 15 other bloggers for the award, but I hope you don’t mind if I only nominate three. The first is wildly popular and her blog is what I hope mine can become someday. The second, is relatively new, but has a lovely blog already. And the third is so supportive and her comments are always so nice.
The Award Nominees:
Once again, thank you Evgenia @ Living on Annette for nominating me for this award. It was a nice surprise. Thanks also to all of you who continue to follow my blog and leave comments and/or likes. It means the world to me.
