The Blogger Recognition Award



I have the great honour of being nominated for this award by Mammasquirrel from The Nut House Central. Please check out their blog here:

The blog is full of tantalising posts of pictures, poems and witticisms.

I have done this post slowly, at my leisure, because I feel a bit under the weather today, but I am sure by taking it easier today I will have a greater appreciation for tomorrow.

The Rules

1. Thank the blogger that nominated you. – Thank you Mammasquirrel 🙂 

2. Write a post to show your award. – Here you go

3. Give a brief story of how your blog started. – OK

4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers. – OK

5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to. – This is where I’ll become a rule breaker. 

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


How my Blog Started.

Well, I have written about this before, see here:

To summarize.

  • Always loved writing
  • Did a creative writing course that was like throwing petrol on the fire of my creativity
  • Saw a link to WordPress
  • Started Blogging
  • Loved every minute of it.


I would like to give a huge thank you to WordPress for making the process as easy as possible.


  1. Do something you love doing, keep doing it and be consistent.
  2. Interact with other people. Take part in some writing or photo challenges and leave comments on other peoples blogs. At the very least if someone leaves a comment on your blog, say thank you.


My Nominees:

I have nominated quite a few people recently and there are so many blogs out there that I admire and wish to say thank you and give them a token of my appreciation.
