What is the Blogger Recognition Award?
This award is passed on by bloggers to fellow bloggers, who appreciate their hard work and effort they invest in each and every post. It is is also a great way to connect with other bloggers and read their blogs.
How I started my Blog:
I always wanted to start my own blog but starting it prior to this year was just not possible. Life got in the way and there was simply no time. Not that life is any easier now but my kids are slightly bigger and they now afford me the time to write. So in May 2017, I wrote my first post. My blog posts features topics ranging from parenting to lifestyle – topics that matter to me. It is a platform where I can put my thoughts and ramblings in writing and to share it with readers and thus allowing them into my little space.
