The Blogger recognition award!

The Blogger recognition award!

I’ve been nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award

They say there’s a first time for everything and this is a first. I’ve seen these awards over the last few months but I didn’t ever think I’d be taking part. It’s awesome that Rock & Roses Mama thought of me alongside some other fab bloggers. Rebecca, you’re doing a great job inspiring a sense of self in Mamas – we all need a reminder once in a while. You definitely rock!

Firstly… here are the rules:

  • 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 15 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 it all started

I started my blog under the name My Highchair, I’d had an idea for an app but I didn’t have the knowledge to make ti work. I decided to sit on the app for a while and I started to build some content in a blog instead, something my brother in law had suggested. The idea was to review changing facilities and general cleanliness of places I visited with my baby boy. I wrote a review posts, but I soon realised that I just didn’t go far enough for the content that I needed. I began writing other posts as well and The Mumatron Blog was born. This year, I’ll be trying to grow my blog following by crafting better posts.

My advice

I feel massively under qualified to be dishing out any advice. One of these is advice I only wish I could take on myself.

Firstly, write as though no one you know is reading what you put. Make it honest, if your mad, be mad. Get it off your chest. If you need to write and cry your eyes out, do it. You can tell when someone’s written a post and how they felt at the time of writing I’m convinced.

The second is to chill. Don’t let it stress you out. Thinking of all the posts, link ups, followers this, statistics that will do only one thing; keep you awake at night! It will happen. Patience is a virtue (yawn – boring but painfully true cliche).

  1. Ah this is brill! It’s nice to read that there is someone else out there who started with a totally different direction in mind! Just goes to show how fluid blogging can be, and that it’s perfectly acceptable to let it grow and change with you! Thanks so much for the tag, I look forward to writing my post! Xx

  2. Thank you so much for my nomination. I am so sorry that it has taken me this long to get round to it, but I haven’t forgotten!

    I love your advice about being patient. I’m rubbish at that – I want to be good at everything now! Haha. But blogging is something that you just can’t rush – you have to keep plugging away at it and enjoy the journey 🙂 Thanks again. Ill try and get my post up in the next few weeks.
