It is an honor to have been nominated for the Blogger Award for the first time. I have never gotten an appreciation award and was more than glad to accept. I was nominated by Mike Senczyszak.

As per the rules, I’ll be answering some questions as follows:
How did I get into Blogging?
It was early days and I was just stumbling around writing bits and pieces on various sites. Suddenly someone mentioned that I should try my hand at blogging. My first effort was over at Blogger but I will tell you this is a bit amusing. Not knowing what blogging was really all about I put in some posts which people seemed to like but each of them I put in as a new blog. I had no knowledge of what was going on. Then I moved over to write for another site leaving my blogging behind. It was then that someone mentioned WordPress. Through WordPress I learned what blogging was all about and ever since then I have been writing up a storm and enjoying every moment. I even returned to Blogger and I am now doing things correctly. Personally I love to blog in both places and I am enjoying it very much.
What two pieces of advice do I have for new Bloggers?
- Well first of all I strongly suggest you don’t do what I did – do not enter the world of blogging knowing nothing about it. Do some reading right here on WordPress and see what is happening in the blogging world. Make your choice about what you would like to share with others and then bravely step forth and set up your own site.
- Once you have begun blogging do it with your heart and soul. Never be afraid of sharing anything that you wish to share. You might think – Will it interest anyone? Soon you will see that you find people who relate to what you are writing about. Once you start to get followers you will be elated and then the true spirit of blogging will take over. Just never, ever stop and put all doubt aside. Full speed ahead and keep on blogging.
Once again thank you for the nomination and for enjoying my blog. Let’s keep on blogging and let’s meet up in cyber world.
As per the rules I’ve nominated 15 great Bloggers below and the official nomination and rules will be sent to each of them.
