“An award, whether it is your first or many, reminds us that hard work does pay off.” -Michael J. Fite

Keep this in mind whenever you get any award, whether it is your first or your last.

My 1st Blogging Award – The Liebester Award

I am happy to announce that I have received my first blogging award, The Liebester Award, from Domestic Diva. In understanding what it is and why it is given, I look at it say that it means a lot to me in this blogging journey.

  • For a new blogger like myself, it shows that my hard work and dedication towards providing daily motivation and encouragement is paying off.
  • It reminds me that I do not get this recognition without the support of the folllowing:
    • Those who read, follow, like, and comment on my content. I appreciate the support because it reminds that without it, my site would not be successful.
    • Those who share my content, such as Be Like WaterThe Evolutionary Mind, and Simply Marquessa. I appreciate everyone who shares my content because it gets my message out to a wider audience and helps me to grow as a blogger.
    • You. When you read any of my content, it makes my heart shine because you are giving my content a chance to encourage and motivate you or someone you know. From the bottom of my heart, I thank each of you individually.
  • To understand more, click and read on my post Why Do I Value And Thank You, The Reader?

Although it is my first award, and it is given to new bloggers, I personally appreciate it because it is my first blogging award and I hope it is not the last!
