3. Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them.  Provide a link to the award post you created. 

I started my blog (Reflections Of Life’s Journey) after thinking about it for a couple of years. I have always enjoyed writing letters and decided one day to write a story. My first story was a long one and it took a while to complete it because of being involved in too many other things. I set it aside and continued to wait until I felt I could devote a reasonable amount of time on a blog. My first posting was on 01/05/2015 and I thoroughly enjoy writing.  I try to join at least a couple of writing challenges each week. The challenges are fun and enlightening and I enjoy reading other bloggers posts.

Some recommendations to new or potential bloggers are:

Decide on a name for your blog and what type you are most interested in.  You may like to write stories, poetry , or about whatever your passion is.

Get your blog site set up and join some of the challenges. This is a great way to learn from other bloggers. You will see how they write and communicate with other bloggers and the photo challenges are very helpful . Be consistent in your writing. Try to write at least one thing a week.

Learn about social media traffic and how to diversify it.

Build a community by making your readers feel a part of something and they will come back, and be sure to follow other bloggers.

Nominees in random order:


  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Appreciate it!


    • I would recommend that you try Word Press if you have never had a blog or any experience about one. This is my first blog and I have learned a lot! WordPress has videos you can look at, and training available ( I want to participate in this training, but I can not devote the time I would like to on it, so I will wait until I am home longer since I travel two days a week). WordPress will walk you through getting your site set up and if you start participating in some of the challenges, it will really benefit you. I started with Flash Fiction For Aspiring Writers…each Tuesday you are given a photo and you make up a story in reference to it, and there is another one with a given photo on Sundays ..called Sunday Photo Fiction that is like that…each has their own requirement for the amount of words you are allowed in your story.
      I’ll be glad to help you in any way I can, so don’t hesitate to contact me. (on my site or email

    smart, and friendly individuals you will certainly ever satisfy.
    I presently have buddies all over the world that I can talk
    with on Skype (likewise free) whenever I desire. While you may have a home
    Web company, it’s not such as burying yourself in a cave and never ever talking with any individual ever once more.

    conversation, and make it count. Do something about it beginning now!

    This is an important question, particularly if you run your web business marketing using the search engine
    positions. It is impossible to say this precisely, since the competitors differ keyword

    your reputation.
    I want to share with you some of the experiences that I
    gone through which you can avoid and in the process will conserve
    you hundreds or countless hours doing ineffective advertisings.

    Promote. This is where online marketing comes in. Recent information shows that advertising online produces more outcomes than the conventional signboards or posters.
    Look for internet advertising pointers or free driving lessons on advertising, then plan with your business partners.
