Blogger Recognition Award III

Not long after I departed for my #adventuredownunder, Steve and Muffin from Steve’s Country most kindly nominated me for this award given in recognition of all the hard work that goes into creating a blog. It is a way for bloggers to support, motivate and promote other bloggers who have clearly put in huge amounts of time and effort, and produced valuable content.

Steve lives somewhere the sun doesn’t shine as much as he’d like but he’s befriended much of the local wildlife which feature prominently, along with the area’s flora, in photos on his blog. If you don’t already follow Steve and his feline companion Muffin, check out their blog and give them a follow.

Steve and Muffin epitomise this award as they encourage, motivate, interact and engage with the blogging community, daily delivering engaging content to their audience.

How did my blog start?

I started the blog to keep my sponsors for a cycling event informed about my progress. Initially, I just saw it as something short-term to meet a specific need. However, family and friends persuaded me to keep it going as they saw it as a way of keeping track of what we were doing. Over the years it has morphed into more of a lifestyle and less of a cycling blog, particularly as I blog about cycling over at VeloVoices.

Two pieces of advice for new bloggers

1. Write from the heart about something you know and love. If possible, illustrate your blog with your photos or drawings.

2.  Let the real you shine through and take the time to engage and interact with other bloggers.

Nominees

I follow so many wonderful blogs, a number of which are deliberately “Award Free.” If you’ve been kind enough to read this then please feel to join in, either in the comments section below or over on your own blog.

Spread the recognition around our wonderful community and have a great week-end

  1. Congrats! It is interesting how we sometimes find what is good for us without really searching for it, like how you realized that blogging was good for you. Blogging is really about writing you.
