Today, I found a sense of fulfillment as a fellow blogger nominated me for an award in the blogging community. LORIEB, a blogger and a published writer based in Canada, nominated my blog for the said award. I would like to assume that she sees my blog as a contribution to the world of blogging. Not only that, I think that she saw my blog as something that everyone could benefit from with only my words, experiences, not-so-extensive knowledge and ideologies as weapons.
This is the first time that I have been nominated for blogging. I have been blogging for only a year and it gives me so much joy and excitement and thrill to have been nominated for something I like doing.
I personally use blogging to share some of my journalistic works. Whenever I finish something – a story, an article, a column, an editorial, etc – I always find myself filled with so much euphoria and pride for the accomplishment. I think that being able to write something is a form of creativity and should be shared to the world not for fame but for the rest of the world to learn from what you have to share and develop a connection with your readers.
When I started blogging, I never thought that I would have audience. I was writing and posting for the sake of practicing my writing and that’s it. I was more than happy to see one read or two. But as I evolve in this world – in this community – I learned that having audience is important and giving your audience something worthwhile is also important. That’s when I started to take this thing seriously and viewed writing with wide-eye optimism.
So thank you LORIEB for the nomination. Now, it’s my turn to nominate other bloggers. As new nominees, you must follow a few rules to keep the chain going…
