What’s The Blogger Recognition Award?
It is an award that is given to bloggers (by bloggers) and once you have been nominated there are just a few rules to follow:
- Write a post to show your nomination.
- Make sure to include a link and thank the blogger that has nominated you.
- Tell us how your blog started.
- Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.
- Select 15 other bloggers that you would like to nominate.
- Comment on each blog and let them know that you have nominated them with a link to the post you created.
How My Blog Started:
Around four years ago when our little one was on the way, I set-up my first blog. I set it up to simply share my journey into parenthood but once my son was born life took over and I stepped away from blogging for a while. I say a while, more like two years! Then late last year I decided to re-launch on a completely different site and re-branded into a Lifestyle & Parenting blog that focuses on parenthood, mental health and lots in between.
Advice For Bloggers:
I think one of the first steps a newbie blogger should do is getting themselves involved in the blogging community. Get creating but also get interacting – especially on Twitter! Follow some of your favourite bloggers and get involved in conversations and before you know it, you’ll have made friends and can help each other out. Facebook groups are also great, too!
Always try to post about something other than promoting your blog. Talk about things that are relevant to your blog, your life and anything you feel like sharing. Get talking and engaging with people as it’s the perfect way to build relationships and be a part of the community.
I nominate the following blogs:
