Blogger Recognition Award

blogger award
I am SO excited to receive TWO  Blogger Recognition Awards from fellow bloggers Jenny Petri from Raising My Little Superheroes  and Jasmine Hewitt from lovelifelaughmotherhood.com! If you have not seen their blogs, you are missing out ! Thank you ladies both so much for thinking of me. It means a lot !

I have been blogging since around January and I have met so many amazing bloggers in this community I am just so thrilled and honored to receive this !

It has been so inspiring to be a part of the blogging community. I am just in awe of how much these women do every day . Most of the bloggers I follow are mothers, wives, work full-time, and still have time to kick ass at blogging ! The Blogger Recognition Award is like a virtual hug to other bloggers and I love it.

There are a few rules that I do have to mention prior to accepting the award…
I have to thank the blogger who nominated me and provide a link to their blog. ✔
I have to write a post to show the award. ✔
I have to write a brief story of how my blog started. ✔
I have to give two pieces of advice to new bloggers. ✔
I have to select 15 other bloggers that I want to pass this award onto. ✔
I also have to comment on each of the 15 blogs to let them know that I have nominated them and provide them the link to this post. ✔

 

Why/How I Started Blogging

If you have read my very first blog post on here (Changes), you will know that I had tried blogging once before when my son was a few months old. I only made a few posts and really had no clue what I was doing. I was so busy being a new mom that I decided to call it quits. Well, four years later  I decided one day that I wanted to try again. I moved from Blogger to WordPress but kept my blog’s name and started completely over this January . At first I just started writing because it was giving me something creative to do. Then after just a couple of weeks I was learning more than I ever thought that I would ! Blogging is now something I am very passionate about. I have always loved telling all my friends and family about awesome products I have tried or great restaurants or the best places to hike with the littles. That is just how I am ! So it was actually one of my sisters who suggested to me a few years ago that I should start a blog to share my thoughts on these things !

Though I still am very small and have a LONG way to go, I am very happy with what I have accomplished in just a few short months. It is my “ME TIME” when I blog. And I am loving getting back into photography, too, and having a reason to snap photos. It is something exciting and to look forward to ! I can’t wait to see where I will be in a year and all the awesome bloggers I will meet along the way.

 

My Advice to New Bloggers

I am still so new that I don’t have too much advice to give. But I can say that I would be completely and utterly LOST if I hadn’t found some great blogging groups on Facebook. You can ask questions, get ideas and inspirations…. I have learned everything from the other amazing bloggers in my groups. It also makes it more fun , in my opinion, because sometimes when you are struggling with something, someone else is too and then you kind of make a friend online while you talk about it and figure out how to fix the problem. It makes me feel more part of a community and not so on my own.

My second piece of advice is to not give up ! After my first weeks I was really loving blogging but getting VERY overwhelmed. I kept comparing myself and my blog to all these larger bloggers and Instagram accounts and started to feel really bad. I thought that I would never get where they are at, and I may not. But that is ok! I may not be making money yet or have the followers that I had hoped by now but I am having fun and knowing that if I work hard and keep at it, great things will come my way.
