I Won an Award Because I’m Awesome

I have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by the lovely Zoe. I enjoy her blog, and she always has a positive attitude. I highly recommend you check her out.

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award.
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select 10 – 15 other bloggers for this award.
  6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.

How My Blog Started

When I began this blog, I used it as a portfolio and did zero actual blogging. I had been freelance writing for over two years and wanted to have a place to direct potential clients. In fact, I didn’t even write a true “first” post. (It’s here if you want to have a look.)

I didn’t REALLY start blogging until January 30, 2015. And I’ve been at it fairly consistently since.

Advice for New Bloggers

  1. Be consistent. Blogging on a regular basis will bring more readers. And while we’re on the subject of visitors to your blog…
  2. Don’t obsess over your stats. All the time you spend wondering who in Indonesia stumbled across your blog could be spent actually – gasp – blogging.

Nominations

I’m not going to be adhering to the rules because I’m such a rebel. And because nominating people can make others feel left out. So let’s put it this way: you all deserve the Blogger Recognition Award, especially if you maintain your blog regularly and simultaneously find time to enjoy mine.

So off you go, mighty bloggers! Write your own Blogger Recognition Award post!
