Blogger Recognition Award

Blogger Recognition Award

I am honoured to have been nominated by Frantasmagoria for the Blogger Recognition Award! Bloggers nominate other bloggers for the award. It is a real privilege to be recognised by my peers, my fellow bloggers.

There are some rules to follow once you have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award:

  1. Thank the blogger for nominating you and give the link to their blog – thank you once again Frantasmagoria. You can find her answers here.
  2. Write a blog post on your site displaying the award.
  3. Describe the story of why you started your blog.
  4. Write two pieces of advice you have for new bloggers.
  5. Nominate 15 more bloggers.
  6. Notify each of your nominees of their nomination. (I will do so via Twitter).

Lellalee – The Creation Story

I finished my PhD in 2017 and I was really looking for a new project to sink my teeth into. I had been working two jobs – as a university lecturer and marketing my brother’s company. During my marketing work, I came into contact with many bloggers. I enjoyed reading their work and thought I might like to create something of my own.

My brother, Michael was a great source of help and support. Within a few days of our initial ideas, Lellalee was born and up and running.

I decided to write about the things I love. And here we are 2 years later. I’m still creating content I love, but I have also discovered some new interests I did not expect to acquire!

2 Pieces of Advice for New Bloggers

  1. Don’t try to fit into a niche. When I started blogging, I thought I had to categorise myself and limit my posts to particular topics. Thankfully, my brother talked me out of this and I have really reaped the benefits of his advice. Lellalee is totally versatile. I blog about the things I am passionate about. If you’re not passionate about your content, it won’t be great! No matter how odd a post/topic sounds, just go for it! Some of my more successful posts have been the most obscure ones that can’t necessarily be categorised!
  2. Utilise Social Media. I cannot stress enough how important social media platforms are to the promotion of your blog. Twitter is a fabulous forum! I have met 90% of my blogger friends via Twitter. I have found their help, support and advice invaluable! So, from the get-go, get your social media accounts sorted and start to connect with other bloggers.

    Thank you so much for the nomination! I’ve done this award already, but I’m going to do it again anyway (such a rebel). I really liked your tips for new bloggers. I agree with you – a niche can really limit you, unless it’s an area you absolutely love to write about and have endless ideas!! I’ve opened mine up a bit so that I have more things to write about xx
