Another New One!

Hello once again everyone on this rather cool Tuesday!  After the beautiful warm weather we had last week, this week feels terribly cold in comparison.  It is only 59F (15C) today, with clouds and some rain.  Too cool for summer.  Did I ever mention that I like warm places?  I do.  I really, really do.  Sigh.  One of these days.

Okay, weather report is over.  Now, on to the new award.  I have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award!  This is a first for me.  I was nominated by Laura over at and I would just like to thank you very much Laura for thinking of me and nominating me for this wonderful award!  If you have never been to Laura’s blog before then I suggest that you should check it out and see what you have been missing.f063d5c7-4388-4ea6-83be-f8a50a66a656-1421-000000ef50d79466

The Blogger Recognition Award is an online award given by bloggers to other bloggers as a way to recognize the efforts they put into their site.

Award rules:

  • Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.

Thank you once again Laura for this award nomination, it is much appreciated.

As you can see, there are no questions for this award.  Therefore you don’t need to worry about me answering and saying that I love warm places.  Oops, I think I did it again. Okay, a brief story.

Well, my blog started with my first post and finally I got to this point.  How’s that?  Brief enough?  Too short?  MEOW!! Hey!! WAIT!! Okay, I’ll make it a little longer.  She was sleeping.  How did she know??  A few more details.  Hmm.  It was some friends that suggested I should start a blog since I enjoyed writing so much and they always enjoyed the things I wrote.  It was mostly my style of writing I think, I’m not like most people, I can have a rather unique way of writing. I don’t follow the rules of grammar.  Sometimes my sentences are rather short.  Really short.  One or two words short.  Sort of.  See?  So after thinking about it for awhile I decided to give it a try.  My first attempt was on another platform and that didn’t work too well.  Then I was told about WordPress so tried again and things worked out a lot better here.  So there you have it, how things got started.  I think.

Two pieces of advice for new bloggers;

1. Right about something you enjoy and know something about.  Don’t write what others tell you, it is your blog and must be your writing or you will not enjoy it and you will soon give up.

2. Start writing.  Use pictures.  Preferably your own, it helps to make your blog you by using your own photos.

Okay, now some nominees for this one, hmm, let’s see;

There we have it once again everyone, thanks for joining me here today and I hope you will be back again tomorrow for more, um, well, something anyway! God bless.

Steve and Muffin.

  1. You probably would love to live in Australia, it’s warm over here. Not enough in the winter but still fine. 😊
