Blogger Recognition Award


Over the weekend, I received some very exciting news! A fellow mom blogger, Cindy from nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award! What an honor, right? I am so very thankful for this nomination, I look at it as another monumental, milestone in my blogging journey!

The Living For The Sunshine blog, is absolutely adorable with topics ranging from how to make extra money during the holiday season, to fun fall activities for the whole family! If you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to stop by and show Cindy some love!

How did The Not So Normal Mommy, start?

I started blogging, as a hobby. As a SAHM, I wanted something more for my days, than Paw Patrol and folding laundry. So one day, I just started writing. Before I knew it, my hobby space became more, than I had anticipated, and I’m so thankful for that. I now have dedicated followers and I’m making friends with other mommy bloggers! I’ve already surpassed what I hoped to achieve with this and look forward to many more years of writing, laughing, and growing with The Not So Normal Mommy! The growth that I’ve seen so far, has given me confidence that I once lacked and I’m so excited to see where this wonderful journey, takes me!

What is some advice, I want to give new bloggers?

Don’t give up. Plain and simple, that is what I want to tell new bloggers! Don’t give up on yourself or your blog. No, you probably won’t go viral in your first week, quite honestly you probably won’t in your first year. That’s okay, don’t give up. When you’ve written and written and written, so much so, you think your fingers will fall off and you only get 2 “Likes”, don’t give up.

Share content consistently, find your niche, connect with other bloggers, and don’t give up. Blogging isn’t easy and you may think your writing is worthless, because your following in growing slowly, your writing is not worthless. Blogging is a process, it’s a journey ,enjoy the ride, and learn as you grow, it’ll be worth it! Slow down, write from the soul, and the people will come, just not over night. Don’t be too hard on yourself and don’t give up!

And the nominees are!!!
