Blogger Recognition Award 

On February 9th while I was sitting at my desk, throwing up, into the garbage can next to me, feeling sick as I had need felt before, I noticed something. Not wanting to leave work, due to a number of reasons, one being $$$$, I was trying to muster up the strength and plow through the day.  I noticed a message for cookandenjoyrecipes popping up on my phone about being nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award.

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you

Thank you Esmé for nominating me for this award. As you may know I have just started with my blog a few weeks ago.  It does feel great to have stumbled onto such a supportive community, thank you

2. Write a post


3. How my blog started

As I noted above I just started with my blog.  I build the frame over the holidays hoping it will help me keeping my recipes in an organized fashion and to share them easily with friends.  The other reason why I started my cooking blog was because I always wanted to write a blog/short stories however I was told my English is bad and I’m using incorrect grammar [English is my second language].  So I figured a cooking blog will be an easy start, plus my blogging four years ago didn’t do so well.

4. Two pieces of advice

My advice, ask, like, follow, share.  After I published my first few blog posts I came across Bern’s blog.  I reached out to her and asked her how she acquired so many followers in such a short period of time. I asked because my dream of writing short stories hasn’t died and the drafts are all nicely saved in a folder. Bern’s advice was kind and simple, ask, like, follow, share.  I have stumbled up onto a very loving, supporting blogging community.  I’m glad to be a part of it.
