Blogger Recognition Award.

Hello everyone on this beautiful day! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and that the weather is nice wherever you happen to live around this world of ours.  I have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by Jyoti over at

Jyoti is one of my faithful younger followers and I would say now one of my friends.  She has a great blog filled with many good things and definitely worth a visit if you haven’t already done so.  And give her even more encouragement in her blogging journey by giving her a follow as well, you won’t be disappointed.  Thank you so very much Jyoti for thinking of me for this award, I truly do appreciate that very much!!

About the Blogger Recognition Award

The Blogger Recognition Award is an award given in recognition of all the hard work that goes into creating a blog. It is a way for bloggers to support, motivate and promote other bloggers who have clearly put in huge amounts of time and effort, and produced valuable content.

Bloggers are very talented people – they work hard, they promote, market, advertise, run a busy site.

They organise all kinds of activities, they encourage, motivate, interact, engage and are community orientated. It matters not if they are shy and reticent or loud and personable – each actively progressive blogger is the same – they all work hard and passionately with their blogs, they put the hours in to deliver to their audience each day a welcoming location to read, absorb, learn and have fun.

To escape the hustle bustles of city life, or the begrudgeries of boredom – they entice readers to peruse their pages to look for entertainment.

That is what the BRA celebrates.

The Award Rules

  • Write a post displaying your award.
  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
  • Tell the story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers.
  • Nominate other bloggers for the award.
  • Let the nominees know that you have nominated them.


Well, let’s see, I started my blog and here I am today.  That was easy.  Meow.  What do you mean ‘no’?  Meow, meow, meow.  Hey, who’s writing this anyway?  Why does it have to be longer?  Why details?  Why…MEOW, MEOW!!!  Okay, okay, a little longer it is.  Sigh.  Well, I started this blog exactly 2 years ago, sort of, though my first official post was a week later.  Why was that?  Because I had no idea what I was doing.  Sometimes I think I still don’t know what I’m doing.  (meow, meow) I heard that.  Laughing at me behind my back right beside me.  Not nice. 

I started because I like to write, especially humorous things or topics about nature.  But this year I have branched out a bit and written on many different topics especially when collaborating with my good friend Ilona.  I have really enjoyed the journey and especially meeting people from all over the world and making so many new friends along the way.  And that really has been the most enjoyable part of this blogging journey.  It was actually some friends that initially encouraged me to start a blog and though I was a bit nervous at the beginning, I am certainly glad that I took on the challenge.


1. Keep it simple, especially at the beginning and write about things you enjoy or topics about which you have some knowledge.  Don’t try to get too technical or in depth except maybe now and then if the topic requires it.

2. Interact with your followers and with people you follow.  It is terrible to leave a comment and never getting a reply, not even a like.

Now for some nominees:

Well, there you have it folks, hope you have enjoyed another award post, and there will be more coming up yet.  Thank you once again Jyoti for nominating me!  I hope you all enjoy the remainder of your weekend and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thanks so much! I always like to keep things simple, why complicate something if it can be said simply? Muffin always likes to get her meow in there on these awards! I just might let her do another award all by herself. She was nominated once and she has been waiting for another nomination, but it hasn’t arrived, so we will see. Thank you, enjoy the remainder of your day as well.😃🌞😺
