I am so honored and humbled to have received my 2nd Blogger Recognition Award nomination. I was nominated by a wonderfully diverse blogger, Didi, whose blog is full of creativity, depth, wisdom, spirituality and love. I am very touched!
Please do visit Didi’s blog here!
I hadn’t realized that I received this nomination from Didi at the same time as the one from Amira. The message had inadvertently gone to my spam folder, glad I caught it!! Given that they arrived at the same time, I will add this one onto the previous one if you’ll permit me to do that.
I will add one more nominee to the list because one of my nominees advised me that her blog was award-free. I try my best to check before sending out my nominations but I missed that one! Oops!!
My added nominee is Manessah B. because her writing is beautifully raw and honest, and her blog is a wonderful place to visit!

Thank you again for everyone’s support and love. This blogging community touches my heart and soul in a very special way. You show me the goodness and beauty of people, everyday. Your words, thoughts and authenticity inspire me to be and do better. I aspire to live up to the recognition I’ve received.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

How my blog started:
I was looking for a blogging platform that had a good reputation. I wanted to blog about organics, natural healing remedies and essential oils as a way to promote the organic skincare company that I had created at the time. One of my interns highly recommended WordPress. I checked it out and was very impressed by the quality of the blogs and the massive popularity of this platform.
I was shocked when my second post went viral with over 360,000 views to date (Organic perfumery: My sexiest Essential Oil Picks for DIY Perfumes!).
But it wasn’t until I dissolved the company and wrote a book that my love of blogging really took flight. When I am blogging I am in deep resonance with my true passion, that of connecting with other journeying souls.
I have found immeasurable creativity, inspiration and humanity here, and my heart bursts open with every blog-post that touches it.
Two pieces of advice to new bloggers:
• Open your heart and share what you find. It is through connecting with the deepest part of ourselves that we truly connect with another. Believe in yourself and your own unique vantage point and you’ll be amazed at how others appreciate YOU!
• Connect, connect, connect. Read others’ posts, ‘like’ what you like, share your thoughts, impressions, and reflections, and follow the blogs that speak to you. Build your blogging village one true connection at a time.
I chose to nominate the following bloggers because each touches some part of my heart & soul. They inspire me and I always look forward to reading their posts.
My 15 nominees for the Blogger Recognition Award are:
2- Zen Flash
6- Chandra Lynn
7- WAEL’s World
9- Word Fandom
10- Daniel Gluska

Wishing everyone in this wonderful community a thrilling writing & blogging journey.

Here are Manessah B’s questions for me:
1- What motivated you to start blogging?
I had created a company that sold organic skincare products and I wanted to connect with others that were as passionate as I am about organics and health.
I started blogging about how to read labels, how to make organic perfumes and about essential oils in general.
I was shocked when my post on DIY organic perfumes went viral, with over 360,000 views to date. I wasn’t into blogging all that much. It was more of a ‘marketing tool’ for my company. I blogged mostly to answer ‘how to’ questions.
But I also feel a need to add a bit of an explanation as to where I’m at today…
I dissolved the company since then because my soul felt unfulfilled, wanting to fulfill what I came here to do, which is to help others with the awakening process, and with how to love and accept this human journey as is, flaws and all.
So, I wrote a book and refocussed my blogging efforts towards connecting with other journeying souls, and I must say, my soul is whistling a happier tune these days. 😊
2- What kind of blogs draw your attention (i.e. poetry blogs, blogs that post inspirational quotes, blogs on cooking, etc.)?
I am drawn to blogs that offer encouragement, love, inspiration, connection to our humanity, and also those that write about our connection to the energetic realms. I love reading blog-posts from souls on an awakening journey. And I love blogs from writers. Artists. Poets. I am deeply drawn to blogs that touch my heart and soul through their writing.
3- If you were a super villain, what would your name be and what would be your super power?
Lol, I’m sorry but I don’t know how to answer that question… I’m stumped 🙃
4- If you could travel back in time and give your younger self some advice, what would it be?
“One day, it will all make sense. And in the meantime, keep doing what you’re doing. You’re doing great even if it all seems very confusing at times.”
5- What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Connecting with amazing people from all over the world! Planet WordPress is a beautiful and kind place where I like to pause and visit for a while 💖
My questions for each of the bloggers I nominate:
1- What is the most moving part of blogging for you?
2- Where do you draw your inspiration from for your blog posts?
3- Why did you choose WordPress as your blogging platform?
4- What has surprised you most about blogging?
5- How has blogging enhanced your life?
I always look forward to the following bloggers’ posts. Their writing opens my heart in some way, touches my soul. There’s something special about each one. They each have that extra ‘something’ that moves me and connects me to them.
My nominees are:
Thank you again Manessah B for this lovely and unexpected nomination! I always look forward to your posts and enjoy your writing very much.
