Blogger Recognition Award

bloggeraward-psitsperi_img_7908I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by P.S. It’s Peri. Thank you, Peri, for this honour, and congratulations to you for winning this award.

Peri noticed there weren’t many blogs from a home-schooled student’s point of view, so she started a blog to share her perspectives.

I am supposed to give a brief history of how my blog started and offer two pieces of advice to new bloggers. My responses are below.

A brief history of how my blog started

I started what I consider “committed blogging” in July of 2016.

Originally, I had intended to keep posts curtailed in four main categories: writing, manuscript editing, parenting, and health.

Unfortunately–or fortunately–I have a broad range of interests that have caused this list to grow. Photographs, challenges, music, gardening, weather, travel, and interviews have found their way into the blog alongside posts about writing, writing tips, NaNoWriMo, and author/book events. The two links below give details.

What my blog is about

What’s planned for us in 2017

Two pieces of advice to new bloggers

  • Posting: Fill a void, and/or blog about what interests you. When you write with passion, others get interested as well.

I’ve stopped worrying about having too many categories and directions in my blog. These are my interests and activities. Yes, I have a lot of them. This is who I am. I cannot confine my life to one theme or topic.

  • Interaction: Read other blogs, comment, share, and show genuine interest.
