So what exactly is the Blogger Recognition award?
The Blogger Recognition award is given from one blogger to another to acknowledge all of the hard work that goes into creating their own blog. Having a blog isn’t as easy as it may seem to the outside world so this award is really an incredible achievement! The blogging community is amazing and we network with each other to promote each other’s hard work by giving out this award!
Why I started blogging
Those of you that know me personally know that I started a small breastfeeding blog about 8 years ago to help other moms because I loved writing and I had no support during my breastfeeding journey except for maybe one friend and my husband. I forgot about the blog and started working part time doing freelance and consulting work (which I still do). Years had past and I realized a lot of my blog was out there and having a ton of views but someone else was getting most of the credit for it! I decided to take all of my work and put it on my own self-hosted site and see what happened with it. I was also so sick of writing for other people! So I started italianpolishmomma and put all of my work in one place! What is crazy is that I learned more about myself by creating this site! I learned just how much I enjoyed coding, SEO, and designing every single part of it! I also wanted to create a site that could help other moms out there. I needed so much help my first few years of being a mom! I needed help with breastfeeding, parenting, working from home, and so many other things! If I can help only one mom out then that’s enough for me! I’m happy to do it!
Advice for new bloggers
Learn as much as you can about SEO and hang in there! The blogging world is huge but if you have a vision and really want a successful blog, it CAN happen! Just remember to be patient and don’t listen to negative people in your life! Post as often as you can and focus on one or two social media platforms at a time so you won’t get so overwhelmed!
