Blogger Recognition Award
I want to thank Josée from her blog, joseelavallee. for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Our paths crossed when we attended Blogging 101 and discovered our mutual love for writing, art and travel. And, she’s just a really sweet person .
There’s nothing more magical as the sound of a quality pen scratching a line of azure blue across a clean, white sheet of lined paper. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t carry a spiral-bound notebook and a ball point pen to jot down recipes, instructions for a DIY project, notes from a seminar, and short stories. Happy. Sad. Inspirational. Informational. I wrote. They were my inner thoughts. Mine and only mine.
My ramblings became public when I decided to author and publish two E-books. I filled notebooks chronicling everything about RVing, the best campgrounds, exotic destinations, traveling with dogs and coping with anxiety attacks. You name it. I documented our emotions: excitement, fear and anticipation as we left the security of the known to venture out into the world.
Suddenly, I was thrown into the world of marketing and the birth of blogging. I created an author page, a website, email list opt in, a landing page, widgets, menus. Yikes! Panic set in.
But, I plugged along. My advice for new bloggers. Sign up for Blogging 101 at the Blogging University. Learn the ropes and write.
Here are but a few of the amazing people who have captured the hearts and minds of everybody they touch. It is a pleasure and honor to have them in my world and to thank them for all the good they do. My list will surely grow as I continue on my blogging journey.
