My First Blogger Award!

Recently I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award. This is very exciting for me as this is my first award as a blogger. I recently joined the blogging community back in April and have learned so much already. Although I still have a ton to learn, I am overwhelmed with joy to have been nominated for this award and would like to give a huge thanks to Lauren at Mothering Honestly . She has a great blog on mom life, DIY projects, recipes, and even coupons and deals all from an honest point of view!


So what is the Blogger Recognition Award? It’s a very kind way to give Recognition to bloggers and it is awarded by other bloggers! Once given the award, you pass it on by awarding 15 other bloggers.  And so it goes on.

Why I started this blog. 

Before passing this award along, I’d like to explain why I started this blog in the first place. I had just given birth to my beautiful baby girl a few months prior and was returning to work from maternity leave. I found myself searching the web for ways to make money from home when I stumbled along a blog post about……..blogging!  Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and before having my baby, I had never desired to work from home. However, after bringing this sassy human into the world, my priorities changed completely. I originally started this blog with the intention of making money. At the time, I thought blogging would be simple, however I have quickly realized how much time and effort is needed to be successful. I still love doing it! I have yet to earn money, however I am really enjoying learning the ins and outs and collaborating with other bloggers! With that being said, I’d like to pass on a few words of advice.

My advice to new bloggers.

First, figure out how other bloggers reach their audiences (i.e. Pinterest, Facebook, SEO etc.) and work on getting your blog out to the public!

Second, pick a day or two to dedicate to blogging. This way you have time set aside for writing, designing, researching, advertising and anything else that might need done!
