Blogger Recognition Award




I want to thank  Paula  from Moonlight for nominating me for this award. I am really honored to have a blogger that I respect name me as a nominee.  I always enjoy going to the Moonlight Psychology blog and slowly translate the posts. The blog is about dealing with and removing the stigma about mental illness.  There is much work needed on that front and it is a powerful blog. Awesome job on the fully English post!

The Rules:

  • Write a post to show your award.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two advice to new bloggers.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and prove a link to their blog.
  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.

What caused me to start my blog:

I had been unable to write for pleasure for several years. I needed to write. There were characters and stories in my head. I was not able to put them down in writing.  I started sharing my personal book reviews in order to spark the creative juices that were being stifled. My logic was that if I can write an interesting book review, then perhaps I can once again write creatively.  I hope that I can make one person at least smile or even laugh. I also want others to know the joy reading gives me.  Perhaps it  is a selfish pleasure that I am compelled to share. 

Two pieces of advice on Blogging: 

  • If  you find something that appeals to you, post it or write about it. Share that joy. 
  • The more you post the easier it becomes.

  1. America On Coffee
