I’m excited to say I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award!!
My special thanks to Touchlineviews who nominated me. I’m honoured to be nominated by such amazing bloggers!
If you don’t know Touchlineviews, they’re two football fanatics who created a blog they share with other football fanatics… Cool, right?! Please check them out here Touchlineviews.
Now to my speech… *clear throat* “Friends, Romans, Countrymen, I’d like to thank….” Hahaha, just kidding! I’ve always wanted to do that! In fact, I’ve always wanted to be nominated for something else other than being on a committee or something, you know what I mean?! So to say I was stocked to be nominated is an understatement! I’m thrilled especially given it’s something I’m passionate about. To be recognised for it is just icing on cake.
As part of my acceptance, I’m supposed to answer a coupla questions so here they are:
How did TeeShares start?
Well, TeeShares started around 6 months ago. I’ve always been one of those girls who kept a diary at school so my love for writing was always fulfilled. As an adult (working adult), I’ve wanted to write but had no time really. When i finally got some spare time during the Dec16/Jan17 period, I made it my mission to build this site so I can share anything I can think of. Hence the name TeeShares – it’s all about Tee (me) sharing. Not a fancy name for a blog, I know. But it’s working so far, lol!
My Advice to new bloggers
- Stay true to who you are and your passion
- Connect with other Bloggers – the blogging world is huge and while you may know what you want to do, connecting with other bloggers is a great way of making friends and learning new things.
Now to the other fun part – I get to pick 15 other bloggers. Yay!
Well, actually, this is a hard one coz there’re so many great bloggers out there BUT since I have to stick to a few, I’ll pick the sites I’ve recently visited or have followed a while. These bloggers inspire not only me, but they reach out to many with their work. So without wasting your time, here’re my nominations:
