Blogger Recognition Award!

I’d like to thank my mum, the lovely Eve Messenger for nominating me and everyone who made this possible. Wait… I didn’t win the Nobel Prize for Literature? The Blogger Recognition Award, you say? Even better!

(By the way, if you want to check out a really uplifting, even inspirational blog, check out Eve Messenger’s OtherWORDly Endeavors. And what a lovely lady!)

Why Did I Start blogging?

My first blog was started as a uni assignment. I can’t remember where it is now. I started a couple more before I came to focus on this one and my gaming blog. This one began because I’m a writer and what better thing to do when I’m not writing than spend time writing blog posts? The gaming one… well, that’s just an excuse to play more games. Now it also looks like work!

Advice to new bloggers

People will judge you. If that bothers you, it’s really easy to deal with the problem – you can delete unpleasant comments or ignore them completely. But unless you want a fight, NEVER respond. Out there be trolls! Arguing with them is futile and won’t make you look any better.

In the same vein, be nice when you’re commenting on other people’s blogs. Don’t be scared to comment – it’s great to join in with the community. Just be polite.

And the winners are…

I chose three blogs (the rules say  15, but I’m a rebel, so hey). They’re all quite different, so let’s say I chose one from the three categories of gaming, writing and art.

Tritops Gaming

It’s not just the games, it’s the music too.

Miss Benison

For much the same reasons as I like OtherWORDly Endeavors – this blog is full of great little bubbles of inspiration for aspiring writers.

Ott Bettina’s Art Blog

This blog has been dormant for a while, but the artwork is pretty cool and I think more people should see it.
