Wonderfully Quirky Thoughts

Blogger Recognition Award

Thank you to Jen at Practical, By Default for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award!  It was a delightful surprise and an honor!  Pop over to her blog for some great posts on homeschooling, parenting teens, cooking, and life.

Blogger Recognition Award @ quirkyandwonderful.wordpress.com

Here are the rules:

  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Write a post to show your award. Attach the award to the post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers.
  • Select up to 10 other blogs you want to give the award to.

My blog’s start:

This blog was born because I became a full-time stay-at-home-mom with three children age 4 and under (all at home, all day).  When I first began thinking about writing a blog, I had very few friends and minimal adult interaction.  I was lonely, and I needed an outlet.  A place to be creative.  A place to interact with adults.  After a couple years, I finally started this blog.  My life is less lonely now, and two of my children are in school at least part of the day, but I still enjoy writing here about food, family, and faith in Jesus.

A piece of advice for new bloggers:

I’m not an expert by any means.  In fact, I’m still a pretty new blogger. So the following advice is something I’m telling myself a lot.  Here goes: Write with focused passion in as few words as possible.

Yeah… I’m still working on this.  The whole point of having this blog is to actually write something.  But I’m trying to write less fluff and more stuff.  🙂

My nominees (in no particular order):

I’m so glad each of you are part of the blogosphere!  I enjoy reading your blogs, and I hope you all continue to post!

  1. Congratulations again on your nomination and thank you so much for nominating me! I love your advice….and it is so hard to do. I tend to write more than I should and have to make myself press delete 😀
