The Blogger Recognition Award


Thank you so much to Shannon (Forevershannon) who recently nominated me for my first virtual award ever (The Blogger Recognition Award)! Please take some time to check out her amazing blog!! She is only 14 but her posts are so inspirational and touches me from the bottom of my heart. ❤

Here’s a quick summary of the rules: 1) write a post explaining why you started blogging along with a few tips, 2) nominate some of your fellow bloggers, and 3) comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.

I started blogging because my friend Karen suggested that I should share my thoughts with the world. She thought I had a lot of good content/ideas and blogging would help me grow as well. At first, I was a bit hesitant because I didn’t know whether blogging was something I wanted to start. I’ve never had a strong desire to write and I didn’t think this was something I would commit to. Nonetheless, I decided there was no harm in trying, so I posted my first blog post on February of 2014.

At the time, I didn’t think much of it. Over the course of the next few months, I was very inconsistent. I would post only once or twice a month. It was always random, and I would only do so if I felt like it.

Slowly, I started receiving a lot of encouragement from my friends and bloggers to keep writing. However, it wasn’t until about 3-4 months ago that I decided to commit and blog weekly. I decided that I want to share all my wisdom and thoughts with everyone. If my posts are able to inspire and help others, it makes it all worth it.

Personally, the hardest thing for me is staying consistent. I have a lot of things I want to write about, but I am lazy. I may be extremely motivated one day, but I could lose the motivation the very next day. Therefore, I have decided to commit to posting a post every Monday. The set date helps me stay organized and it pushes me to be consistent. So if you’re a new blogger, I would suggest you setting a time/day to blog. There are bloggers out there who can blog everyday. However, I know that is not sustainable for me. I believe staying consistent is more important in the long run. Consistency helps develop loyal followers and steady stats. Good luck!

Please check out these following blogs down below. I’ve only listed 5 because you’re probably more likely to check out 5 as opposed to 15.

I just want to share all my knowledge, ideas, and experiences with the world. It makes me happy to know that I can inspire others.

  1. My name is Marie Therese and I am searching for the miraculous in all things. My trials, tribulations, excitement and joy is taking me far and wide. I am traveling inwards to examine my core values and beliefs and outwards to other countries to learn about theirs. In 2014 I travelled to India with our Guru Korko Moses and in January 2015 I visited Vietnam which I documented in my blog On May 24th my blog took an interesting turn, was it an epiphany? Suddenly it became very clear to me that there is a need to provide emotional well-being support system through social media and thus the idea of blogging every Wednesday was born, under the title:
    ‘The Inward Journey: Finding the Real Me: If you do what your Irish Mammy says, you will always find your way home’.
    This free online support is an extension of my private practice and the courses that I have taught on positive self-awareness, positive self-awareness and meditation over the years. I have no expectations of outcome except to reach people who may be searching for direction and meaning in their life.
    At this point in time it feels like the right to do and I would love if you could help me achieve this in any way that you can.
    Thanks a million for listening to my story as it unfolds before us.

  2. Congratulations, Grace, on the nomination!!! Hehe, I will support you always and I am very glad that you took on the hobby of blogging! So fun eh? 😛 🙂
