I’m incredibly honoured to be nominated by Rory from AGuyCalledBloke for the Blogger Recognition Award 2017. What makes it such an honour is that Rory’s calibre of writing is outstanding. To be recognised by a blogger I look up to and who’s talent I greatly admire is extremely humbling.
Rory is a mental health advocate who shares with us his wondrous poetry written about a wide variety of topics. They highlight his life thoughts, his sense of humour, his hardships, and his sense of curiosity. Additionally, fellow bloggers are also invited to participate in his Truly Inspired series, so follow the links and check out his works!
A bit about my blog
My blog isn’t dissimilar to many in that I write about my life experiences. To narrow that down a little further, I write primarily under the categories of mental health & parenting. Especially relevant to me as I’m a parent with depression, raising a 15 year old daughter with bipolar, anxiety and PTSD. As you can imagine, it’s given me lots of material!! I also publish my daughter’s poetry and stories on my site. Recipes for good mental health is another sideline I’m very slowly building up.
Advice for beginner bloggers
♦ Write about topics you’re passionate about. It makes writing so much easier!
♦ Show your personality in your works. It allows your readers to form a connection with you.
♦ Use spellcheck or something similar if you’re anything like me – great at editing others work but hopeless at editing my own!
