I know it’s been a bit since I’ve posted. I just got back from vacation and am now getting back into the groove of things. For this post, I am taking a break from my A to Z challenge because I want to express my thanks to The Whimsical Pineapple for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award! I am honored and thank you! If you have not visited her blog, you should definitely check it out. She has beautiful taste and talent in decorating and design. I have truly enjoyed reading her posts!
Here are the Rules:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to his/her blog.
- Write a post to show your award.
- Give a brief story of how your blog started.
- Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
- Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
- Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging only five months ago, soon after I moved to the Sunshine State. I decided I needed an outlet as I adjusted to my new life in Florida and as a woman who is also slowly losing her vision due to Retinitis Pigmentosa. Blogging has truly been healing in it own way.
Two pieces of advice?
Just write. If you’ve got a topic or idea that you’re not sure others are really going to be interested in, write it anyway. There have been several posts that I didn’t think many people would be interested in and they turned out to be some of my most read and shared posts.
Stick to a schedule. Being consistent is important as a blogger. I personally try to stick to publishing a new blog at least once a week (unless I’m on vacation).
There are so many great blogs out there, but I have nominated fifteen that I relate to and/or have given me encouragement.
Check out these wonderful blogs and I hope that they give you as much encouragement as they have given me!
