Thank you, Charles French, for nominating me for this award. I look forward to your posts on reading, writing, and film insight. There is so much about blogging that I enjoy – the creative outlet it provides; the chance to meet others and share, discuss, and sometimes collaborate with; and ultimately, to better myself through this expression and learning from others.
Rules of the Blogger Recognition Award:
• Post an image of the award.
• Thank the person who nominated you and their blog, and link back to that blog.
• Explain briefly how you started your blog.
• Give a piece of advice to fellow bloggers.
• Nominate other bloggers for the award–as many as you wish, and notify them of their nomination.
About five years ago, I told a friend that I would like to start a blog, but that I didn’t know what I would base it on. She is an amazing raw food, ex-pat mommy blogger. She said, “You have four children! You could write about that!” I still didn’t think that blogging about my kids was material enough, so more time went on. But still, I missed writing! And in the meantime, I found myself constantly entertained, or going crazy, over the things my kids did. And thus began my first blog: Today’s Dose of Sanity. It was more or less an outlet for me. After awhile, I started up a few more blogs: one mainly dedicated to poetry, one for homeschooling, one about raw food and healthy eating, and one about my Orthodox Christian faith.
I don’t really have advice for anyone looking to start a blog or to improve upon one already in existence other than BEGIN! Write often! You will find your voice; you will find your audience; and you will find your passion. But first you must begin!
My nominees are :
Phil Brewer – he is an entrepreneur, writer, pilot, adventurer, and everything else a boy wishes they could be.
Aaron – a writer who didn’t know he was one. An avid reader. An intellectual. My best friend and critic.
Rachel – I just stumbled upon your blog of hilarious sarcasm and I can’t get enough!
All Things Chronic – What doesn’t this blog cover? I look forward to each piece, be it news or personal accounts.
My Two Sentences – The most beautiful stories written in only two sentences. I aspire to be half as good as you someday!
The Lightning and the Fire -I love your beautiful, passionate poetry!
Simon – From daily quotes, comic strips, personal accounts, to sci-fi story shorts, is there anything he can’t blog about??
