Thank you so much to Sonal Gupte from Sachisha, for nominating me for the BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD!! This is my second award in less than a week and I am more than humbled and honored to accept it.
In Sonal’s own words, she writes “My aim is to ‘Destigmatize chronic illness’ and spread awareness!!”. Keep up the great work, Sonal! I like to think we are warriors in this battle together!
Rules for The Blogger Recognition Award:
Give a brief story how your blog started:
My story is not that complicated or long. I was diagnosed back in 1999 with Bipolar Disorder, type one. For years I did not let anyone know that I had Bipolar Disorder. You could say that I was ashamed. I have been a proactive patient since day 1. I know this is a chronic illness and something I will deal with for the rest of my life.
This year (April 2017), I found an online class on how to create your own blog. I felt this was the perfect opportunity to come out of the shadows and share my experience with the world!
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers:
Maintain a posting schedule that you can adhere to. Stick to it and you will reap the benefits with traffic to your site. Sometimes it takes a while, but it is well worth it.
Try to make the technical stuff as easy as you can. If it is too difficult for you, I would suggest outsourcing this part. It can be rather time-consuming when you are starting, but like anything else, there is just a learning curve.
I have gone ahead and listed the nominees for The Blogger Recognition Award. Each of these blogs is unique and completely deserving of this prestigious award. I hope you will take the time to click each one and tour them individually.
Congratulations to all the nominees!
I hope you accept this award. Please comment below with a link to your post about The Blogger Recognition Award when you have completed the steps.
Until next time, take care of yourself! 🙂
