I launched my first blog, this one, around December 2014. However, it picked up pace, comments, likes and followers following my involvement in Writing101 in April 2015.
And I noticed a lot of bloggers nominating each other for some award or the other. To tell the truth, I was hoping that I wasn’t to be nominated as I am not familiar with the blogs of others. But then, the path we take to avoid destiny is often the path that leads to it.
I decided to stop doing all these blog awards.
While I really appreciate that people think of me while they have to do nominations, I think there are other stuff that we can do to encourage one another, instead of these awards. So, thank you for these awards, but instead how about
- Reading what we write, and giving feedback via the comments section, or with the contact page.
- When we find posts that we like, we could share it with the people around us.
- If we like a blog, in particular, we could follow it, or recommend it to the people who we know will love it.
- If something inspires us, we could write, and then talk about what inspired us. This will create a chain of posts that will help us catch the eyes of readers who love to read what we write.
