Hey this is a new one! “Blogger Recognition Award” 1, 2 & 3

Laura Venturini has very kindly nominated my blog for this Blogger recognition award. I am truly grateful to her for bestowing this honor on my blog.

As a result of this post of Laura, who had nominated Di, of Pensitivity, she also gave a shoutout to my blog. Thanks a lot Di for your kindness.

I was also nominated by Beckie of Beckie’s Mentalmess for this award. A huge thanks to you Beckie as well.


  • Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.

How it all started;

I had a friend who started to blog and to read her posts, I had to make a WordPress account. Every time I would open my account to read her posts, the app would urge me to start my own blog. So one day I did it! I had not thought this through and had not made any long term plans but when I started to write, something miraculous happened and it became my new passion or hobby. It is so rewarding to write what others read and like. It truly is a humbling experience but at the same this it is exhilarating too! I want to thank all my friends here in this blogging world who have given me tremendous support.

My advice;

1. Just write. Write on things which are your passion. Write about things you are knowledgeable about and write with sincerity. And don’t give up writing if it is your passion.

2. Be grateful that people are willing to spend time on reading what you write. Never lose this as otherwise you will become arrogant and the process of blogging will not be a source of enjoyment for you. (And always accept awards😜)

My nominees;

Dr Tanya of Salted Caramel

Calmkate of Aroused

Tanvir of Beauty lies within yourself

Britchy of Brichin in the kitchen

Anitashope of For the love of

Kim of I tripped over a stone

JP the wide eyed wanderer

Len of Lensdailydiary

Willow of Patience of a willow

Tom of Slumdog Soldier

My sincere thanks once again to Laura for the gifting of this award.

The blogs I chose for the award are really great ones. I hope that the fact that writing award posts are a time consuming process will not deter you from accepting this award. To my mind being nominated or given an award is a great honor and a way to bond with the community. So please try to pay it forward.

  1. Congratulations! I love your advice! I just accepted this award, and blogged about it last week… I better not do it again so soon. I love awards, Sadje! I thank you for acknowledging me! I’d feel really self centered if I did an award blog again so soon.

  2. Thanks so much Sadje, I started blogging because I really wanted to share my poems then my passion for photography got reignited along the way!
    1. If someone bothers to comment on your post be sure to respond eg thank them or read a post of theirs!
    2. Don’t take on more than is enjoyable or blogging will become a chore, keep the joy flowing 🙂
