I’m honoured to say that in the last few days I’ve received two blogger award nominations.
Thanks to Dingto – for allowing the fantastic image of planet earth to be used via Creative Commons, and which I have shared as my featured image.
So here’s the game. At the end I’m going to nominate 10 blogs that I enjoy following for one reason or another, and if any of you want to play (there’s no obligation), please choose the award you would like and run with it from there. The Mystery Blog has a particular remit which I’m not quite sure that my blog lives up to 🙂 but then I thought about the planet …. because I’m sure that following a vegan lifestyle in a peaceful way transforms mysteriously into leading a more compassionate life, that will in turn directly contribute to the well being of the planet. Big talk I know in these days of chaos…. but the alternative is too often to do nothing.

BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD
The Blogger Recognition Award is sooo important. We all know what it feels like to put heart and soul into a post and sometimes feel like nothing comes back. This award is one way of saying : keep on going … don’t give up …. we all like your blog … we just forget to show it… 🙂
So. Thanks to :
for the nomination. Another lovely vegan food and travel blog full of hope and happiness . x
Rules for the Blogger Recognition Award.
Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
Write a post to show your award.
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Select 10 other bloggers you want to give this award to.
Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.
How my blog started:
Briefly, I started this blog as a personal aid to keeping my own vegan lifestyle on track, and then also to connect with the on-line vegan community and to do my own small bit for getting the vegan word out there. And even though a recipe blog can be a bit intensive what with photos, accuracy…and all that … I actually do it simply because I enjoy it.
My advice to new bloggers would be:
Find your voice (sometimes this takes a while I think) and then stay with it … and let it evolve in your own unique way.
Be open and friendly to the huge blogging world …you never know what you might find 🙂
Here are my nominees ( for either and/or both blog awards!) :
some are new to me … and some are familiar … either way…please keep blogging! 🙂
( there’s no escape 🙂 (not true – there’s no obligation in fact 🙂 )
PS. I’ve had one or two problems messaging one or to of my nominees … sorry for that …I will try and figure out why …x
have fun 🙂
