One Lovely Blog Award!

I have been really inspired with my blogging since taking up the Blogging 101 Challenge this September, it has been like a second wind! I think I have been stretched in my writing and it has been really lovely to see how things have changed in such a short space of time.  I have gained new followers and received more comments from readers, which has been such a buzz!

So it was such a wonderful surprise to receive Saana’s comment yesterday afternoon, saying she had nominated me for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award.’  Saturday 4th October marked my first anniversary as a blogger, a milestone I was so pleased with on a personal level as I had no idea I would have lasted a year when I first started.  It’s a wonderful way to encourage someone who is new in blogging and its has made my day today:-)

The One Lovely Blog Award nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for those newer or up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and to also help the new blogger reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow-blogger who chose them. This award acknowledges bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with their viewers and followers. In order to “accept” the award the nominated blogger must follow several guidelines.

About aquene7

I am a mother, a grandmother and Christian, all an essential part of who I am. I happened upon Blogging and found out how to mesh something I have done through out my life which was encouraging those who were friends and family and my love of writing. In doing my usual personal development I came in to the world of coaching and totally fell in love with it and I am currently studying to become a Personal Performance/Life Coach with The Coaching Academy. I absolutely love writing and thought this would be good way to combine these three passions in one place. I hope you find my blog does what it says on the tin, which is to encourage readers with positive and motivational posts:-) Update: 23/3/14: I finally decided to put a face to my blog:-)

  5. It was so nice to read some facts about you! And there’s another challenge for you. Take small steps to get rid of your fear of heights and one day you will be skydiving! 🙂 To be honest, I have always wanted to try skydiving, but deep inside I feel I wouldn’t dare… maybe one day! 😉

    • It’s such a contradiction to be fascinated and fearful of something at the same time😊 small steps in Skydiving I have no idea how you build up to that. Gosh you may get there before me Saana😊
