I have been very lucky to receive another nomination for the blogger recognition award last week by the gracious Tracey Rains de Spontaneous Whimsy. I’m so grateful to her.
Yep that’s 2 in five days and I’m completely blown away.
This time I’ll do it a bit differently. I’ll do three rounds of five nominations instead of one of 15.
I’ve started this blog in december 2013 after NaNoWriMo, because I did not want to stop writing. This summer, I engaged in a short story writing challenge and was lucky enough to have the idea to answer to Daily Post prompts and see the audience response in a very positive manner. That was all I needed to find new courage within myself and enroll in Blogging 101, then Writing 101 and Blogging 201. I just love connecting with the readers through my writing and making my blog a better place to come, read and find positive advice on writing has become something I’m truly passionate about.
If I had a piece of advice for new bloggers it would be to write regularly about what they like the most and not be afraid to engage with the community, especially WP bloggers as they have a very kind and constructive way of blogging. If you love your readers, they’ll love you back 100 times more at least, give you insightful feedback, great ideas, and, last but not the least, make you feel like writing everyday.
The first round is a tribute to my french readers : I’ll nominate french blogs only.
Here are my nominees for the first round 1st Blogger Recognition Award :
1/ Louise de Mademoiselle Louise
2/ Nessendyl de Bim Geek : http://bazardeskorrigans.com/blog/
3/ Marièke de Mécanismes d’Histoire : http://www.mecanismes-dhistoires.fr/
4/ Jo Ann d’Espaces Comprises : http://espacescomprises.com/
5/ Catherine Loiseau : http://catherine-loiseau.fr/
The 5 of them write blogs writing oriented and if you read french, they are really worth the visit.
The rules are the following :
- Thank whoever nominated you and include a link to their blog.
- Write a post and give a brief story of how your blog started.
- Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers.
- Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.
- Let the nominees know you have nominated them and provide a link to the nomination details.
