Nominations for Blogger Recognition

I’m breaking the rule of nominating 15 bloggers, because there are so many bloggers who continue to enrich me with knowledge through their intriguing, heart-warming and thought-provoking stories both in prose and poetry. Nature lovers and photographers who share their fascinating worlds, and many more refreshing bloggers sharing their worldview.

Give a brief story of how your blog started

As mentioned on my ‘About’ page, this blog started as a way of keeping in touch with my family and friends, sharing joys and challenges in my second home. The blog has achieved more than that just ‘keeping in touch’ but connected me with amazing bloggers/writers all over the world.

A piece of advice or two to new bloggers

Hmm…advice! Write about what you passionate about, care about and so that readers can take something from your experience. Second, do not measure your blog success by numbers (even if your aim is to gain a lot of readers) but by how readers relate and engage with your posts. That is, not only ‘liking’ them but leaving comments showing that they took time to read the content.

Happy Blogging!

  1. Congratulations on the award, Cocoa. I so agree with your advice to new bloggers. It’s not about number of likes or followers, as often these numbers can mean very little. I’ve see blogs with 2,000 or more followers and loads of likes, but hardly any comments. It’s all about the interaction with fellow bloggers. 🙂

      Thanks AD. That’s one thing I enjoy most with blogging, interaction. Of course, it’s not always possible to comment on each and every post:-)

      1. Me too, and of course we can’t keep up with each and every post. It’s not as though blogging is our career, and there just aren’t enough hours in a day. 😀 xx
