Woohoo! I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by Mehreen over at Make It With Me. Please take the time to check out her awesome blog and by the way, she just posted a delicious looking recipe for Vegan Chocolate Brownies that is making me drool!
What is the Bloggers Recognition Award?
The Bloggers Recognition Award is awarded to bloggers. This award is given to bloggers to show appreciation for their hard work, dedication and the amount of blood, sweat and tears put into maintaining their blog. Growing our blogger community by showing love and appreciation to others.
Why I Started Blogging?
I started blogging way back when I was in middle school – before blogs were even really popular (that was about 17-18 years ago) as a creative outlet of sorts. I love to write – anything and everything. At the time, I never would have imagined that I would still be blogging so many years later! I really hit my stride after graduating from college when I blogged about healthy living but real life interfered and my writing sort of fizzled out. After moving back home, I started blogging again which brings us to The Southern Belle Blogs. TSBB got its start in 2013 as a way to document my budding green thumb and has evolved now to being focused on my pregnancy, among other things.
Advice For New Bloggers
My biggest advice for new bloggers? Find your why. Why are you blogging? Is it to connect with others in your community? Is it to make a profit? Is it to simply let your friends and family know what is going on in your life? The sooner you realize your why the better your focus will be. Also, BE CONSISTENT. Even now, consistency is one of the things that I struggle with but I’m making an effort.
