Blogger Recognition & Smiley Thumb Award

Hi there people! This post is long overdue actually. First and foremost, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my fellow blogger, Sonali Mukherjee who is an avid follower and one of the nicest and sweetest person I’ve known. Her blog – Howling With The Wolf is worth a visit  and a follow, she writes amazing stories,, and I love the way she comments on my posts.



By the way, I combined the two consecutive awards that I received from her: The Smiley Thumb Award and Blogger Recognition Award. I also want to let her know that I really appreciate her thinking about me and her acknowledgments serves as an inspiration for me to do better than my best.

Since the instructions and questions are barely the same, I decided to combine and answer them all at the same time.

  • Write a post to show your award. Done
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started. Though I signed up in WordPress year back 2012, I started writing posts just last January after I joined Blogging  101. Truth is, blogging is a long time dream,  writing poetry and articles is a habit since college but due to  the demands of both family life and work, I haven’t got a chance to pursue it before. Thank God, when I resigned at work and stayed at home to take care of my four children, my boredom paved a way for me to focus with my blog.
  • Give two advice to new bloggers. Well, I am also new to blogging. My blog is merely five months old (technically) but two things I’ve learned which I would like to impart to new bloggers are: First, go check  other blogs, read, and  comment as sincere as possible. Second, always return a compliment and don’t forget to acknowledge fellow bloggers and never fail to say thank you.
  • Tell us what makes you smile. Simple things like seeing my children happy and doing well, seeing likes and comments on my posts, receiving an email or a call from my partner, and random acts of kindness from others just like these awards from Sonali makes me smile.
  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. These are the bloggers that I think worthy to be recognized (hopefully, they’ll acknowledge this and make a post, if they can’t, I understand. No pressure).
