The Blogger Recognition Award

Being nominated for this award by two bloggers is really nice. I’m excited about fellow bloggers liking my blog well enough to nominate me for an award. So here’s a special thank you to Adventures From Elle and Renegade Expressions, incidentally both awesome fellow Jamaican native bloggers. Thank you for thinking of me.

  • Comment on each blog and let them know you nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

My Blog Story

I started my blog last year because I needed a creative outlet while I was home, pregnant and relatively immobile by myself. I decided to re-discover my passion for writing,  and share it with this (new to me online) community, family and friends and share my journey as a late 20s first time mom. My blog has since blossomed into a  lifestyle blog and I’m looking forward to filling it up with many more interesting pieces.

Advice to New Bloggers

I know we are all multi-faceted people with tonnes we’d like to share. However, do try to theme your blog or at least arrange posts by category. It’s easier for your readers to find content in which they’re interested. Not everything you share may attract the same crowd.” – This is advice from Adventures from Elle. I’m re-sharing because it’s worthy and I myself is one such multi-faceted blogger.

Be kind and respond to the blogging community. Like, share and comment your thoughts. It’s a great way to engage other bloggers. I myself browse constantly for new blogs that catch my interest, that’s why I love the nomination part of this award so much. quite a few new blogs to check out!

My  Nominees

Since I’m still relatively new, I haven’t a whole 15 nominations or know if the people I want to nominate will accept. But even if they don’t, I’m content to share great content. It’s my belief that the sharing of knowledge lends itself to a little immortality. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. So here they are.
