Blogger Recognition Award

April 4, 2016 in Uncategorized

Hi guys and happy Monday! Today I am super excited to write this post. My fellow blogger friend Lynne at Lynne’s Recipe Trails nominated me for the blogger recognition award! Thank you so much Lynne for nominating me for this award and being such a huge support to my blog!


Rules for the Blogger Recognition Award:

Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

Write a post to show your award.  Attach the award to the post.

Give a brief story of how your blog started.

Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers.

Select up to 10 other blogs you award to.

How I started my blog: 

I used to have a recovery Instagram as well as a WordPress blog back in 2014/2015. However, I made the switch to my own domain and a self-hosted blog at the end of 2015. I am very passionate about using my voice and sharing my experiences with an eating disorder to help others. I love writing and I love connecting with those out there to show them that full recovery IS possible, so I figured a blog would be the best way to do that!

My Advice to New Bloggers 

Write what YOU are passionate about! Don’t fall victim to obsessing over how many people view your blog and the statistics. As long as blogging is making you happy, that’s all that counts!

My Nominees for the Blogger Recognition Award are:

Bits of zen


Blonde Pancake

Always fully dressed with a smile

Graceful coffee

Again, a huge thanks to Lynne for the nomination!! Truly means so much to me and am very thankful to have connected with such a sweet soul through the blogging community!

Hope you all have a great Monday!

Sending my love as always.

    You definitely deserve this! I am so with you on your advice to new bloggers. That’s something I’m asked all the time and I always give a similar answer to yours.

    Don’t blog to be a blogger, blog because you want to share something you love!
