Hi! I don’t consider myself a newbie in the blogging world and this is my third time being nominated in this kind of award so this is not new to me. For those of you who are not aware of this nomination, it is a way to be discovered and also to connect and support the blogging community. It is as well a great idea in promoting your own blog and your fellow bloggers. Each nominee is given questions to answer and then in return they nominate other bloggers and give them the same questions to answer.
So today, while I was checking my blog, I came across to a notification and I am so happy and honored to announce that I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award. So I want to thank girleccentric for picking me of all the wonderful bloggers out there. Her lifestyle, fashion and expression blog has simple yet wonderful design and content. I encourage you to go and check her out. I’m sure you will fall in love with all her marvelous posts.

- My answers
◆ I blog because I want to keep a personal journal for myself and writing is actually one of my favorite pastimes and I want to learn more. I am not really good in words and through blogging, it forces me to teach myself the terms that I don’t know. Also, because blogging obviously improves our writing and communication skills. Add to that, I blog because I want to express myself, share my passion and share my knowledge in the process of learning more from the web.
◆ My first tip is, BE CONSISTENT IN BLOGGING. I can’t remember where I first read this tip but many bloggers have shared it before me. I’m not saying you’ll going to post like everyday. No, at least post three times a week simply because the more frequently you update your blog with a fresh content, the more opportunities your readers will enjoy visiting your blog. So decide on a realistic posting schedule you know you can. Also, focus on your content so your readers will know what to expect from you.
◆ Second is, always remember to GIVE A PROPER CREDIT. Let’s say you’re reposting another blogger or writer’s quotes/words, first, you have to put some quotations (“”) then put the name of the blogger or author. Or rather say according to… then put the name. It is perfectly fine to use someone else’s work as long as you give credit to the original owner. Don’t just copy someone else’s work and claim them as your own. Same when you’re sharing someone else’s photo. Just keep in mind that it’s always a good gesture to put a proper credit when you’re using the photo, words and quotations of other.
Thank you everyone. Hope you guys will particapate in this blog nomination. But it’s totally your choice if you’ll do it or not.
Thank you for reading.
