Blogger Recognition Award

Blogger Recognition Award

I was so excited to find out that I had been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by Eugenia Nazarova of an Advertising/Media/Marketing Blog.  It is truly an amazing feeling when you are recognized by a peer.  I have interacted with Eugenia through her Blog and Facebook for a little while now and I enjoy reading about the marketing of different companies some of them from around the world that I would never hear about if it weren’t for her writing. Thank you for thinking of me and supporting me with this recognition.


Below you can find the rules of participating in Blogger Recognition Award

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Write a post to show your award
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

How My Blog Started

I started my blog Blended Life Happy Wife because I had been writing on Facebook about the ways I had been using online sites and Apps to earn gift cards and cash from doing online surveys, watching videos and completing small tasks.  Many of my friends and family expressed an interest in what I was doing and suggested I should teach a class.  While that was an interesting suggestion it didn’t really fit my personality. Instead I decided I would start a blog and share the information that way.  I started writing my blog and found that my blog veered more towards what my Blended Family Life is like versus the money making tasks I was doing.  So even though it is still a topic I will continue in my blog I would consider my blog to be more of a Family/Parenting Blog. My Blended Life makes me a very Happy Wife.


The Two Pieces of Advice I Would Give to New Bloggers are:

Don’t get overwhelmed.  There is so much more to blogging than I expected .I was overwhelmed by the process and several times wondered if I had gotten in over my head.  Patience helped me get through those feelings.

Be true to yourself. Write from the heart and tell your story, not the story you think people want to hear.  Only then will you continue to be inspired. If you are trying to do what you think other people want you will lose focus on the reason you began blogging in the first place.

  4. Great advice for this new blogger! Especially the part about being true to yourself. It's so easy to get caught up in the number of retweets or comments, and trying to please people. But my mind is about to explode with ideas that *I* want to write about. It's the whole reason I started blogging! 🙂 Definitely don't want to lose sight of that! Thanks for the advice.
