First of all thank you to Leisel for thinking of me and nominating me for yet again another Blogger Recognition Award.

Why I Blog?
Now I know I did this before and the answer is still the same. I wanted money and the internet said it was easy. NEWSFLASH!! It’s not. It takes a lot of dedication, perseverance, time and creativity. I have perseverance but I’m not 100% dedicated, creative nor do I have the time! 🙁
That’s the story of my first blog. This blog, Kat Blogs, was brought to life because of my desire to escape real life and also be a place where I can share my journey to a better lifestyle. I wrote quite a lengthy backstory which you can find here if you want to know the fine details.
Two things – comment and join Blogging U!!! 😀 WordPress is a fun community and the best way is to fully immerse yourself in it by connecting with other bloggers through Blogging U and by commenting.
Oh and a plus advice (a top tip I’ve learned in Writing 101 and Blogging 201) is don’t look at your stats!! I know people like looking at their stats and feeling an immense sense of happiness when you get traffic into your blog but if you just write or create content for stats, you’ll lose motivation and find yourself writing for others and not for yourself which for me would be a definite bummer! I mean if you like doing that go ahead but I highly advice against it. 🙂
Cheers Leisel for this award and here are my nominees:
Pebblestone Steps / Rosemawrites / Doctor Eamer / Tlizzy / Stephanie Cardozo / Sarah’s Attic of Treasures / Jen / Megan / Jacqueline from A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales / Shine On! / Sheridan Johnson / Lexa from Keepin Up Appearances / Ananya from Being Zingy!
I’m not sure if they accept awards but their writing/blogs are amazing and you should definitely check it out!
I’m sorry I’ll be skipping going into each of my nominees sites/blogs to comment since I’ll be scheduling this post. 🙂
