I was totally surprised when I was nominated last month for The Blogger Recognition award by Sam from Taking on a World of Words! This really came at the right moment because I was having one of those days you know, should I keep blogging and doing videos, etc. This made me realize that I am doing something right. Thanks again Sam! This is much appreciated. You should all go and check out Sam’s blog. She writes reviews, www Wednesday posts, NaNoWriMo posts, book club reflections, and much more….
Eve over at Edge of the Night is the creator of this award, which introduces and praises enthusiastically bloggers and the blogging community. Thanks Eve for this wonderful initiative!
So here’s how it works:
1. Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
2. Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you’ve nominated in the post. Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above).
3. Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.
4. Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing!
Well I have been an avid reader since I can remember. However since I entered my 40s, I’ve become increasingly interested in writing. Journaling is something I do but it wasn’t giving me that extra push I needed to really embark on writing. So I tried to think of the best way to combine my old/constant love reading with my new love writing and that’s how Brown Girl Reading was born. The first year was a bit of a bust but by the second year I was consistently writing and enjoying blogging and discovering other blogs. Being laid up with a torn tendon also pushed me further into writing since I had to spend 3,5 months sitting down, stuck at home. That horrible experience transformed me in many ways good and bad. The writing and propulsion in my reading has been the best change. I started my blog with a different name but Brown Girl Reading came into being January 1,2015. The name suits me and my blog perfectly.
Love writing and reading in the case of book bloggers. Other bloggers just love what you’re writing about.
Blog consistently, whatever consistently is for you.
If things don’t look or aren’t like you want them, change them. You are the mistress/master of your blog.
Search out new bloggers to broaden your horizons and to connect with them.
Much continued, excellent blogging to you all!
