Thank you so much for nominating me and these kind words that you messaged me ” I want to also take a second to nominate you for the Blogger Recognition Award.

How I started my blog
I have mentioned it before, but Emily is the reason I started blogging. She is my boss and after I started working there we became Facebook friends. One day her post fell into my feed, I opened it up and read it. Right then I was inspired and I thought, I could do this. I posted once that day and then VERY sporadically over the next 14 months.
Advice to New Bloggers
Comment, Like, Follow and Share. Spread the love out in the Blogosphere. In my opinion that is the only way to go. I mean, I write because I am hoping that someone/anyone is reading. But, if I want that for my Blog, then I have to do that for others. The day that I spent more time in my reader than I did writing, that was the day that my Blog changed. I go into my reader all the time now. Leaving genuine words, letting people know that I read their words.
Also, write about what makes you tick. You can only write as often as you are inspired. Maybe that is once a day, once a week or once a month. When you are inspired though, write about it and put it out there. Other bloggers will love that you are being genuine and real. To me those are the bloggers that I like the most!!
Links will be sent to the nominees.
