Oh! Shoko’s going to be upset she missed this one. She loves awards and thinks they’re hers…just hers. Well, this award is for all of us…even mom.
Dezi and Raena from Deziworld gave us this awesome award and we thank you very much for your thoughtfulness.
Isn’t the wreath lovely! Wish I could wear it like my Lei. We started blogging back in the fall of 2014. Shoko had started in Cat Scouts and was having a great time with her new-found buddies. Mom was reading blogs to us one day and she muttered out loud that we could do a blog too. Well, it wasn’t as easy as mom thought but dad helped establish her with the blog Then she was afraid to use it. What if nobody ever came to see her posts? How embarrassing. She threw caution to the wind and actually published a post. Then she wasn’t sure if she should look and see if anyone stopped by. One day she broke down and looked. She was in seventh heaven, three peeps had looked at her post. Woo hoo…the big time! Mom didn’t blog again for three months. She didn’t think she could do as well.
The best suggestion I have for beginners is to focus on something you never seem to tire of. If you do this then the posts will never be a chore but fun and part of your personality and also enjoyable for others to read.
The next suggestion I have is to do and say what YOU want to say not what others think you should talk about. It is your blog to do your thing not be another voice for someone else or their cause. Be true to you.
Our final step is to choose 15 bloggers we think deserve this award. Well, there are so many more than 15 bloggers that deserve this award that I will only choose 3 to name and the others are more than welcome to grab the badge and call it their own. You all have worked to develop the blog and then spent many hours honing the skills needed to develop interesting posts. In our eyes, you’re all winners!
1/ samanthamurdochblog…This blog talks about gems and precious stones, cats and she is a storyteller of short stories. The author’s love of gems is obvious as she carries us into the world of rockhounding. Her love of cats is heart warming and comical. Her short stories are amazing. Mom has cried and laughed as she is drawn more and more into the story. Definitely worth visiting this blog.
2/ TWOCATSVIEWS: Life as seen by Hemingway and Steinbeck.
These two little terrors are cats and we view life from their perspective which can be both humorous and touching. Stop by and give them a peek. Say Kali sent you and maybe some nip will show up.
3/ Hairballs and Hissyfits is a cat blog which tells the cat’s activities from their own eyes. A cheerful and happy blog. Do take a peek at these charming kitties.
