Robert Goldstein nominated me for The Blogger Recognition Award this morning. Isn’t that cool? 🙂 I have witnessed, first-hand, Robert’s generosity and support of other bloggers. Nominating me for this award is an example of his generosity.
The rules of this award are:
- Explain how and why you started this blog.
- Offer advice to new bloggers.
- Nominate other bloggers for the award.
I started this blog five years ago. I was in a transition at the time – exiting from a 20-year career as a public school teacher, and unsure of what I was supposed to do next. Working on the blog gave me something to DO – gave me some structure and a sense of purpose. It also became a journal of sorts – chronicling the changes in my life – my adventures and misadventures and all that I was learning. This blog has given me the opportunity to connect with other writers and photographers, and a world full of people who want to contribute something positive to our world.
My advice to new bloggers? Be like Robert. 🙂 Reach out to other bloggers. Check out their blogs. Take the time to comment on the posts that really touch you. Become a part of the blogging community.
I nominate –
Austin Hodgens @ https://moviewriternyu.wordpress.com/
for the healthy, much-needed laughter he provides the world
Rob Moses @ https://robmosesphotography.com/
for the beauty and heart he brings to the world through his photography
Izrael @ https://mylifeasizrael.wordpress.com/
for his courage and honesty
There are so many other folks I could nominate for this award – all of them worthy of recognition. But three seems like the just right number somehow.
None of these nominees is obligated to accept this award or do anything with it. 🙂
