Blogger Recognition Award, x2!

Hello everyone and welcome to another award post!  I was nominated by two kind people for this award today and I’m sorry for taking so long to get this done, I’m still way behind on my awards!  But I want to thank Laura, who nominated me first, and Sara for thinking of me for this great award!  Thank you so very much, I really do appreciate it!  Please check out their blogs and give them a follow!

The Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to show your award.
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select up to fifteen bloggers you want to give this award to.
  6. Comment (or pingback) on each blog to let them know that you’ve nominated them, and provide a link to the post you’ve created.

How Steve’s Country Began:

Well, let’s see, I started the blog one day and here I am.  MEOW!!  What? Not good enough?  Okay, many long months ago…no, wait, that doesn’t sound right.  Meow, meow. Oh, okay, let’s try that.  I always enjoyed writing but really had no idea what a blog was or how to write a blog.  But I was encouraged to give it a try by a friend so looked around a bit and first started a blog on another site, but it wasn’t going so good.  Then I discovered WP and started Steve’s Country as a place for people to come and relax for a bit, enjoy some nature photos and perhaps get a smile or laugh from some of the stories that I write.  After a while I started to include Muffin (Meow,=that’s me😸😻) and she quickly became a prominent part of my blog.  Yes, Muffin is a real cat and much of what I share about her is quite factual!  Even the way she acts in my new fiction series, 20/20 Investigations, Inc.🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♀️  I started including poetry too late last spring which amazingly has become quite popular.

Two Pieces Of Advice To Other Bloggers:

1.  Write about something that you enjoy and stay with it.  Not everyone will like everything you write about, but don’t worry about that.  If you write what you like then you will get a good list of followers that like those things also and blogging will be enjoyable and something you will want to continue.

2.  Be willing to answer comments as soon as possible, engage with your followers, be kind and respectful.  Read other blogs, and comment, but again in a kind and respectful way.

There is really a lot of advice that could be given I guess, but I’m only allowed two.😂😹

Now, The Nominees:

Well, that’s it for this one, thanks again Laura and Sara for this nomination!  I hope all of you have a wonderful week and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
