My dear blogging friend Cosmic Explorer has nominated Dear Kitty. Some blog for the Blogger Recognition Award.
Thank you so much for this kind gesture!
For all the nominees for this award, here are the rules, if you choose to accept:
Write a post to show your award.
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to them.
My blog started in January 2005, then on ModBlog. ModBlog, however, was sold to a big corporation which killed it. So, I had to move to Blogsome. When Blogsome stopped, I moved to WordPress in December 2011.
Two pieces of advice for new bloggers are:
2. Use categories and tags for your blog posts, making it easier for yourself, visitors, search engines etc. to find related posts. Not too many categories and tags, though; it seems that for WordPress over 12 for one blog post is too many.
My 15 nominees are:
1. G R E T A ‘s
2. simple Ula
6. Miss Ayo Délé
11. P e d r o L
12. Sharmishtha Basu
13. The free online
14. O at the Edges
