The View From My Window


Blogger Award Acceptance and Nominations

This goes out to Aditi Sharma, from India, and her beautiful blog, Idle Muser.  About a week ago, while I was checking my emails…one in particular put a smile on my face. Aditi had written a post with a few nominations for the Bloggers Recognition Award, and I was among those nominated. For this, I thank you, Aditi. If you have not had a chance to get to know Aditi through Idle Muser, please take a moment and check her out. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

Once the award is accepted, I am to complete the following:

The traditional rules for accepting this nomination is:

  1. Thank the one who nominated you and embed a link to their blog.
  2. Share how you started your blog.
  3. Give a little bit of advice that new bloggers can take away.
  4. Select fifteen other blogs  who you think really deserve the award.( Sorry, I cheated)
  5. Visit the blogs you nominated and let them know.

My Genesis: “The View From My Window” has always been a constant thought from my younger high school years. I always knew I would be a writer from the first time my pen hit the blank page and a poem was formed.  The title was inspired by my Creative Writing Class. How I loved that class and Mrs. Francis Eckert. What an inspiration she was.

From Me to You: Be Yourself. Don’t blog about what all the other bloggers are saying. Find your niche and write on a regular schedule. Don’t just focus on writing, but reading also. Read other posts from those who support you and seek out those who don’t. Be supportive in the blogosphere. Don’t worry about the “stats” and do remember what your purpose and goal is in blogging. Write with conviction from a personal point of view. Blogging is a people business so be true to your readers as well, as yourself.  Oh…and did I say? Be Yourself?

I would like to nominate a few bloggers who have come my way and have been admiring their work. You are not obligated to accept but just know that you are an inspiration. For any who are not listed and would like to participate, please feel to accept this nomination, as well.

Saved and Blessed, But I Smile Anyway, Inspire Within Yourself, SomaWrites, Sunshine: Rays on Life,

 Thanks again, Aditi, for the nomination. You are an inspiration to many!

I Have a Question. Do You Dare Try to Answer?

Hello Friends and Fellow Bloggers,

Although my blog is still considerably small, it’s growing everyday. If you are a reader, writer, blogger or just someone who wants to connect with others…I’m hoping you will be interested in this community.

Laura’s Link-Up was not created to gain more followers. Blog stats and numbers may be what some are looking for, but for me…I just enjoy linking-up with fellow writers, bloggers and readers  who want to share their inspiration with others.

With all that said, let’s get started.

Click here for the first discussion question.

Hope to see you in the link!
