Wherever you are in the world, good morning, good afternoon or good evening. And if your new, welcome to my blog!
This morning I checked my wordpress notifications to find a message from Rose Allure nominating me for The Blogger Recognition Award.
Firsty I want to say a massive thank you for this nomination! I have had wordpress for a while now but have only started taking it seriously and uploading consistently within the past week. It’s such an awesome feeling to be recognised for the effort you put into something! So thank you, Kayleigh.
The criteria for The Blogger Recognition Award requires you to write a breif story about why you started your blog. So here is mine:
’emzynelson’ has been the name I’ve always had on any social media platform ever since the day I created my very first Instagram Account. ‘Emzy’ is a nickname friends and family have called me since I was a kid. And the ‘Nelson’ is the city where I’m from, hence the name ’emzynelson’. I was inspired to create my own blog when I was on a week long cycling trip from Vienna to Budapest last year. I realised I was collecting so many amazing memories, photos and stories to tell. But where was I going to put them? I didn’t want all these awesome moments of my life to be stored away in a dusty photo album. I believe we all have something to share with oneanother. And someday I won’t recall all the wonderful things I have to share. So this is my blog, ’emzynelson’ – the story of me.
The criteria also requires you to give two pieces of advice to new bloggers. Here are mine:
1. Personalise your blog.
Make your blog stand out by having something unique to share.
2. Interact with other blogs.
If your wanting to grow your blog, get involved on other blogger’s pages.
Have a look at what everyone else has to say and make connections with other bloggers.
Again I am so pleased to have recieved this nomination. And to everyone who recieves a nomination from me, I want you to know that I think your blog is something special and that your content is an excellent example of what I love most about blogging. Use this award to celebrate more bloggers in the great community that is WordPress! If all of you are to follow this tag, we will have recognised 225 great writers. So get blogging and thank you x
