Blog awards 2

As I said previously, I don’t usually do awards, but I’d like to highlight the bloggers who nominated me :).

Thank you Aathmana. Aathmana titles her blog Read. Love. Live. As her title says she loves reading, and writing. She started her blog during lockdown and definitely uses the time well.

Thank you Eilidh Horder. This is from a REALLY long time ago, but I want to highlight her blog :). She spreads calm and sunshine and has some interesting thoughts. I’m looking forward to her future posts.

Thank you Fit recovery. Jim writes about biking. He cycles a lot, like a really lot, and any question you have about bikes, saddles and trails just ask him :). He writes about his recovery journey and shares insight, understanding, and hope that it is possible. That you, too, can do it and be happy.

Thank you Mentally ill in America. He blogs about his mental health journey and offers comprehensive advice/explanation to people struggling. He started blogging 3 months ago and has come along amazingly in those 3 months. Go support him!

Thank you Mental Health 360⁰. Caz blogs about mental health. The 360 degrees reflects that it is from all angles and aspects. She covers anything and everything in her blog….

Blog awards in my view serve 2 purposes. One is to help bloggers who need support along. The other, the one I like better, is to show someone they’re appreciated. That you like their blog. For that I’d like to create the I love your blog award in response to these awards and I’d love your thoughts.

The I love your blog award (I was thinking about this one night when I couldn’t sleep) means you comment on any blogs you love (aim for 15 – 20 but 1 is perfect too). That you love their blog and give 3 sentences why – or more, you can write an epistle if you want. You would not need to say it’s an award and they won’t need to do anything with it. If you want you could write a new comment telling them to pass it on. To comment on preferably newer bloggers, or bloggers with little engagement posts and let them you love their blog and why. Anyone, everyone, no matter how long they’ve been blogging, or if they’ve been blogging for 20 years, loves appreciation. Before I write a post on this I’d love your thoughts….

Love, light and glitter

Remember, you are beautiful. You are worth it. You are enough.

Blog awards – blog promotions, blog share.

Spread sunshine and love

Hey y’all. I’ve gotten a few blog awards recently but have never responded, one of the main reasons is because I don’t want to insult the people I don’t choose. Then I was reading someone’s post about blog awards. That they help new bloggers. So I decided to answer them, sorta. Instead I went through my readers and those I follow, and chose the bloggers that aren’t yet followed by hundreds to highlight here. I don’t know all these people well. Some, I do. They’re the most gorgeous people who take the time to read and respond to my posts. Like that’s what makes them gorgeous :). They’re inspirational and calming.

There were more I’d highlight, blogs I really like, but the bloggers haven’t posted in a while…

These blogs are a mixture of life thoughts, mental health, addiction, science, cooking, and love.

Of course, they’re newer blogs!

Christina, relationships – Christina is a relationship coach – which she studied due to her life history – and gives relationship advice on her blog.

Crystal Byers – a writer and blogger who lives (?? In the US??)) and shares wisdom and wit.

Eilidh Horder – she writes tips and advice and awesomeness ‘turn down the white noise and find your song’

E.V. Rambles – a blogger journaling about their life with anxiety, running (!) and as the title suggests, rambles.

Free to be V – Vanessa was an alcoholic and shares her message of recovery and mostly, hope.

Genuine gems – a blogger sharing their life gems. As the title says – genuine gems!

Heather – a published author and blogger who muses about life, poetry and with helpful advice.

Julie – Bandito – Julie is, you got it, a Bandito fan 🙂 an awesome artist, and a great writer.

Musings of brown girls – Roohi and Nida are sisters who give life advice artfully explained through their bullet journals – really pretty.

Michelle – happy as a pig in the mud – an Australian who gives life advice and awesomeness, a kind of zen.

Rtisha – started her blog a couple of months ago. I can’t think of a single category to describe her or her blog. A teen at home who loves reading and writing.

Science Girl – science all wrapped up in a bow. Request your topics, Science Girl will deliver! She wants you all to love Science as much as she does :).

Something over nothing – a mental health blogger with some great, and detailed posts.

Terrified Amatuer – if you want recipes with a backstory, food to savour, and great writing tied in one K is the blogger for you.

I was going to tag some more people but before I do so I have to know if they’re interested. I didn’t ask any of these people first…. I didn’t ask any of you but I think you’re awesome and I’d love others to get to know just how amazing you are!!

This is my version of the blog awards – maybe I’ll make another post mentioning them. (In case you didn’t realise, it’s alphabetical order, I’m scared of hurting others…)

If you want to go more award style then please write a post and share/promote some new bloggers, or those that could do with more followers and help them be a part of the community here more. Remember to write something about them or their blog… and please link it here – I’d love to meet new bloggers, especially during this time. And you can always write a couple facts about yourselves. We’d all love to know more about you… (please

Take care of yourself… you are worth it!!!

Love, light, and glitter

I know I’m a little late in the day, but, may your Wednesday be filled with love, light, and sparkle bright!

SBA – Thank you for being you.

Sunshine blogger award.

I know plenty of people don’t do these posts, so, it’s not for you to actually continue the chain (well you can if you want to), rather it’s my way of telling you what you mean to me. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do this post or not, but I’ve decided to, on my own terms. I’m using this post as a thank you. I hate doing such posts because I know I’ll inevitably miss people out. Presumably the most important. I’ll have to decide whether to actually post or not because of this. Okay, I’ve decided to post this. Knowing that most the people tagged won’t see it (as I’m not letting them know) and knowing I’ve left out most the newer people I’d include. I wrote this a while ago, so there are a lot of people I’d add (if you think I’m thinking of you I am) but if I don’t post it now I never will, because it’s never possible to really include everyone.

Thank you Kayla and Have you ever noticed for tagging me here

Some questions for anyone reading this post, I’d love to hear your answers. Feel free to answer here, or on our own blog.

  • If you would create a new society what would the principles/basis/rules of this society be?
  • If you had the chance to do something, anything, in your life over, what would it be?
  • What about yourself do you like best? I mean more personality/trait wise.
  • If you could give one piece of advice to anyone what would it be.
  • If you had a few hours spare time every day and money being given to you to spend every single day – not for yourself since you’ve been given other money for yourself and your eternal future – how would you ideally use this time and money?

Love, light and glitter
