Blogger Recognition Award

I was genuinely surprised by this award, and  I want to thank Dreaming of Melville for even considering my blog. I think these awards are important for not only recognizing our fellow bloggers work but also exposing us to new blogs that we might have otherwise never come across.

Rules for The Blogger Recognition Award

  • Thank the person who nominated you for this award and provide a link to their 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 fifteen other bloggers to give this award.
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

My Story

When I started blogging in 2012, I didn’t consider myself a blogger. In some regards, I still don’t consider myself one. My journey into blogging began as a challenge to myself and also as a way of sharing information with like-minded individuals or anybody else for that matter who happened to stumble across it. I challenged myself to only making posts that I believed to be beneficial to my audience.

Advice to new bloggers

Know your purpose for blogging and stick to it. Try to keep your posts to a reasonable length. I think 500-800 words on average is great (I start losing interest after that). There are times when you might have to write some 1000 words post, but I don’t think that should be the norm. Post frequency is also important. Some people post multiple times per day, and I think that is too much. It can be especially distracting if your followers have email notifications enabled. That’s three more notifications added to the myriad we receive daily from social media and other applications and websites.

Interacting with your fellow bloggers is key (I wish I started doing that sooner). Follow, like, comment and share, but most of all have fun!
