Bloggers Recognition Award!

bra

I am honored to be nominated for a Bloggers Recognition Award by Susmitamukherjee of Uniquesus. I urge you to take a look at this blog. Susmita writes poetry and prose. The short stories are really very good ; they take you into the world that Susmita creates and carry you along and then…..there is an ending that will catch you by surprise.   One of the things that I also appreciate about the stories is that they are set on the other side of the world and for me it is a glimpse into a culture and a country I have never been to. Here is a link to the blog. https://susmitamukherjee.wordpress.com/

The rules for accepting this award as follows.

  1. Give thanks to the person who had nominated you and a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award.
  3. Briefly tell how you started blogging.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award.
  6. Comment on the nominated blogs and let them know you have nominated them and give a link to the post you have created.

How did I start blogging.

The photo for this award is particularly appropriate. It is an old type writer, the kind I started on in high school, no electricity you had to push hard on the keys.  And no ‘delete’ or ‘backspace’. If you made a typo you had to erase it carefully by hand. If you re-read a paragraph and decided it was all rubbish you snatched the paper out of the typewriter, scrunched it into a ball and threw it across the room or maybe just onto the floor. In the photo you have all this history.

I wrote , on a similar typewriter, in my twenties, for magazines; interviews, reviews and some short stories. I also had a proper day job so the writing was an extra . A few years ago I began to write about the Florida horse show season for a British website and last March my adult son and daughter persuaded me to start my own blog. The freedom to write about what I want and to write without an editor changing the focus of what I have written is a real joy. The other great joy is that I have found other bloggers in so many different parts of the world and getting to know them and read their work is a privilege.

Two pieces of advice for new bloggers.

  1.  Write about the things that interest you in life and write for yourself. Write for the joy of it.
  2.  Take advantage of the Word Press online courses to make the most of your blog. Their Blogging U courses are worthwhile and fun.

I nominate the following bloggers for the award.

  1. Centered in the Saddle
  2. AHA Moments
  3. Whippetwisdom
  4. Wanderlustplusone
  5. Shivashish Speaks
  6. Stories of Wanderer
  7. Frank Prem
  8. Notis Stamos photography
  9. Horse for Elinor
  10. A Writer’s Life
  11. The $900 Facebook Pony
  12. Susiesopinions
  13. La Rioja el mundo desde mi guardavinas
  14. Build a Dean
  15. My Art and Me.

There are many others that I enjoy reading as well. This is just my ‘starter’ list.

      You are most welcome. I forgot you were an ‘award free’ blog site. It is quite understandable. I hope that a few people may see the name of your blog and take a look.
