Happy Monday! I am holding off just one day on posting my personal blog post for the week. Why you ask? Last Sunday, I woke up to a very humbling comment & message from my blogging friend & recent collaborator Clare from The Tully Tales. She had nominated me for The Blogger Recognition Award. This is an award designed by bloggers to recognize one another in the blogging community & to share blogs they enjoy with their audience.
I can’t thank Clare enough for thinking of me. It was now my honor to find bloggers just like me who deserved this same recognition, as well as to share a bit about my life & new-found passion, blogging!
I had a list of reasons why I decided to start blogging this summer. My family was the first, as you can see by the title of my blog, it is named after my daughter, Scarlett. I also attended college to be a teacher & writing has always been an outlet for me.
I am a very passionate, friendly & social person, and blogging is the perfect community to meet others that are just like me. It has allowed me to share my life, my tips as a parent, wife & mother and it has opened many opportunities for me just in these past few months.
It is important to do lots of research, find a good supportive community & plan ahead. What do you enjoy or are good at & think others would learn from? Start with Pinterest on the basics of blogging & dive in! Getting the framework of your blog done first before pressing the GO button is important as well.
Facebook has groups that you can join to grow your tribe, as well as Pinterest Group boards that can help gain more visibility to your blog. This is my newest adventure right now!
I nominate these amazing Bloggers for the Bloggers Recognition Award;
These are my nominees for this award:
Take some time to check out all these wonderful bloggers. Great way to past the time this Monday.
