I’ve just been nominated for another blogger award, twice, this time by Little Tinkablee (@Tinkableeblog) and Real Bad Mommy (@RealBadMommy), this time for the ‘Blogger Recognition Award’. I highly recommend you all pop on over and check out both Little Tinkablee’s and Real Bad Mommy’s fantastic blogs.
About The Blogger Recognition Award
This award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It helps fellow bloggers to get their work the recognition it deserves. It’s a really good way of helping each other out. It aims to help bloggers get their work recognised and promoted to other bloggers.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
- Write a blog post on your site displaying the award.
- Describe why you started your blog.
- Write two pieces of advice for the new bloggers.
- Nominate and notify 11-15 other bloggers.
Why I Started Blogging
I started blogging to share my experiences in the hopes that they might help other people because my biggest drive in life is to try to help people.
I was trying to think of a way I might be able to help others whilst I dealt with my physical health problems. My health forced me to give up my recovery worker job for an addiction charity. Whilst I was trying to figure out a way, the idea of writing a blog came to me, so here I am, blogging.
Thus, my blog takes a “slice of life” approach to my problems and experiences, mainly covering my mental health problems, but also my physical health problems and dyslexia.
My Two Pieces Of Blogging Advice
- Research your host! I’ve found myself with a host who has made my life a nightmare, and I’m stuck with them until January 2020. If you want to read more about my host nightmares, check out the article I wrote on it ‘Choosing The Right Host For Your Blog‘.
- Depending on the kind of blog you’re writing, you should be prepared to put aside a lot of spare time to create and promote your content. It can take a surprising amount of time to create a post, especially if it requires a lot of research.
My 8 Blogger Recognition Award Nominees
Although the rules say you should pick 11-15 nominees, I’ve recently had to pick people for four different rewards in the spare of a few weeks (The Liebster Award, The Mystery Blogger Award, and The Sunshine Blogger Award). Thus, I’ve decided to only pick-seven this time.
