On the 15th June 2016 I was nominated for two blogger awards. Namely the Sunshine and Brotherhood award , by Xena at Blackbutterfly7 . Thank you Xena.
Admittedly, I was shocked and I was relatively new to blogging. Though I had started my blog 7th March, I really only stepped into gear in May. So, being nominated so early in my blogging career (well, can you call it a blogging career – I don’t know ?) . So I was truly humbled, honored, excited, and scared -because I was like – eerr what do I need to do, I am so new, I haven’t been blogging long enough.
So, I gracefully accept these awards, still in shock. Still honored, humbled, excited, scared, can’t believe, and totally appreciative of such a recognition. I am late in accepting these, sorry Xena. But, a HUGE THANK YOU to Xena. As per the rules of each award, one answers a few questions, nominates other bloggers and ask some new (or you can repeat the questions if you like to your nominee).
The Sunshine Award is a peer to peer award given to bloggers by other bloggers. It is given to “bloggers who are positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.

BROTHERHOOD OF THE WORLD AWARD
The rules for the Brotherhood of the World Award are;
List the rules and display the Brotherhood of the World Award logo to your post and/or blog.
Answer the questions sent to you.
Nominate (around ten) bloggers.
Create your set of questions for your nominees.
The questions, (and my answers) are;
- Which blog post do you consider your best one so far?
I don’t know they are all different.
- What was the best comment ever on your blog?
Each and every comment is THE BEST because, some one has taken the time to read, like and comment. That is so precious.
- Did you make blog posts receiving much more attention than you expected? Which one, for example?
Well, for me, Just getting a like or comment, for anything I write is a beautiful and wonderful experience. I am not a writer at all. It is extremely hard work for to write. This part of the reason to blog to become a free flowing writer. So , for me all the attention any of my blog post receive is a wonderful feeling.
- Did you make blog posts receiving much less attention than you expected? Which one, for example?
Hard to say, I feel to new at this blogging game to know. It is big learning and writing curve for me, that less attention is are hard one. But, one thing I have noticed it all depends on what time you post and what days you post. Dare I say, I think there needs to be a bit of strategy in posting, obviously content is key, but when is also as important. BTW – I am no expert.
THE NOMINEES ARE;
Okay this is a bit difficult, and a bit unfair as all blogger on WordPress are brilliant. I don’t like choosing just 11/12 it seem a bit unfair. So, I want to apologizes to all who I am following or yet to discover. The rules are the awards are such – it is totally unfair. I would nominated all on WordPress – because blogging is Super hard work! I will be updating your about (or latest blog post) pages with a comment shortly with your nomination from me.
Here are my nominees for both awards.
I hope you are all able to accept and enjoy the recognition. Thank you all. And thank to all bloggers following me, I love all your blogs.
