Thank you to Angie Indulge your inner foodie for another wonderful nomination – Blogger Recognition award. The purpose of this award is to recognize bloggers, give them encouragement, motivation to continue blogging, and basically just let them know that they are loved and appreciated. Being a blogger is not as easy as it might seem at first. For me, it takes time and commitment to come up with new ideas, to try them out first, to be consistent, to be supportive of other bloggers and especially to write a post as I am not too wordy..it all takes time and effort. To know that people read and get inspired by my ideas means a world to me 🙂 Thank you.

How I got started and a piece of advice to new/not-so-new bloggers
It started out as my personal journal where I would keep my recipes. I was planning to collect it throughout my life so when I’m old I pass it along to my grandchildren. What a long-term plan? 🙂 Then, I decided to collect quotes/sayings that inspire me and that hopefully will inspire others along with stories from women that I meet in my life. I didn’t want for it to be self-centred (tho, sometimes I do have an urge to share my travels and adventures) but instead to help others, to spread the love for home cooking, to share some inspiration and encourage others to do and be their best.
My advice would be to be consistent. Pick a day that you know you will likely to have more free time and do your best to post regularly. Once a week works for me for now 🙂 My other advice is to be supportive of other bloggers. Spend some time to actually read what other people post, like if you like and share. Blogging is just like other things in life – if you want to be supported be supportive of others.
