About the Blogger Recognition Award
The Blogger Recognition Award is an award given in recognition of all the hard work that goes into creating a blog. It is a way for bloggers to support, motivate and promote other bloggers who have clearly put in huge amounts of time and effort, and produced valuable content.
Bloggers are very talented people – they work hard, they promote, market, advertise, and run a busy site.
They organise all kinds of activities, they encourage, motivate, interact, engage and are community orientated. It matters not if they are shy and reticent or loud and personable – each actively progressive blogger is the same – they all work hard and passionately with their blogs, they put the hours in to deliver to their audience each day a welcoming location to read, absorb, learn and have fun.
To escape the hustle bustles of city life, or the begrudgeries of boredom – they entice readers to peruse their pages to look for entertainment.
That is what the BRA celebrates.

How my blog Started
When I went to college, I really didn’t know what I wanted to do. I just chose to study what I was interested in. Alternative health is very broad and covers so many different therapies. Once I received my Bachelor’s degree in Alternative and Complimentary health, I realized I was interested in so much of it, rather than one particular health modality.
Five years went by, and I hadn’t done anything with my degree. There was no particular area I wanted to specialize in. And it just hit me one day, why not just write about all of it? So, in April 2019, I started writing for my degree. Now I think of having a really broad field of study as a bonus.
The first few months were hard. I don’t know how many people have created a web site and blog using only their phone? I wasn’t used to writing every day, and when I started out, those first few weeks, it was more about learning WordPress than writing. I’ve gradually gotten to where a day doesn’t feel complete until I’ve written
something for my blog.😊 Now I use a tablet at times so I’m not always on such a small screen.
TWO PIECES OF ADVICE TO NEW BLOGGERS
