Bloggers Recognition Award!!!

I was so touched to find that Jemima from Another Ranting Reader
had so kindly popped my blog down as a nominee. Thank you so much!

Little things like this are very exciting I think you'd agree because as a new blogger, navigating through the ins and outs of this wonderful hobby, lifestyle, passion and community, it's even more encouraging when you get a lovely surprise such as this small pat on the head. I don't have a huge audience, this is just a very small scale space, but it is still more than I expected starting out.

It seems there are a few rules to abide by with this award -
 in which I hope I get correct and do justice to.

Firstly ...

Say thank you and acknowledge the blogger who nominated you :

Dear Jemima, please see above! Huge thanks to you for choosing my blog and me. It means so much. I would highly recommend anyone who stops by, to take a look at
Please do. It's a lovely place.

Secondly ... 

 Offer a small story about how you began blogging :

I have two blog creations that I first pressed publish on in January of this year.
Keep Calm and Start Writing - began when I needed to do exactly that! Cutting a long story short, I was working one day, feeling desperately fraught with worries, when I saw a Zoella article gleaming up at me from a newspaper. From here I fell head over heels for this world of writing/blogging that I never knew existed. ( I was a late arrival to this wonderful world) I've always adored writing, and to create a place where I can tap away on the keyboard and fill up a page with my thoughts and pictures is just very lovely in every way. My hope is to one day be a Children's book author, and write

My other blog is . . .

Bridie's meadow of Mindfulness with Horses

It is all about the benefits of Animal Assisted Therapy - I focus on my love of horses and the need for a little emotional healing after a tough time with my mental health. It is my discoveries and thoughts and offers a few helpful tips along the way to anyone who may need a little boost.

Thirdly ...
 Two Tips for Newbie Bloggers:

1) I'd have to say, just be true to yourself. Write what you feel and what matters to you. First and foremost, blogging should be a fun, positive and creative outlet that makes you feel good about who you are and the way you see the world.

2) Enjoy discovering bloggers, learning from others, exploring their worlds and admire fellow writers without comparing yourself to them. Learn from and enjoy this world of writing!

Lastly ... very importantly!

Nominate 15 favourite bloggers of your own and share them:

( This worried me because I did not want to leave anyone out! )

 I want to celebrate the blogs that I love and not miss anyone along the way - I hope you enjoy these lovely bloggers spaces as much as I do - Please know if I have missed someone, it's not because I don't love your work, because I really do . . . My Best wishes go to everyone! Apologies if you have already been nominated before - I am new to this!
