Blogger Recognition Award!

I am elated to announce that I have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award, my second award in only my first month of blogging!

A delightful shukria (thanks) to Anushka and Hrishi of Roamonurown for nominating Brown Girl Journal for the Blogger Recognition Award. Theirs is a travel blog inspiring travellers to travel on their own, without tour guides, tours and packages. Roamonurown is filled with posts about travel tips, advice and suggestions!

What is the Blogger Recognition Award?

This prize is passed to bloggers by other blogger, who appreciate and recognize their strong work and the amount of effort they invest in each and every post.

How I started my blog:

I considered starting my own blog for a long time. I wanted a way to express myself on a platform that will reach family, friends (old and new) and readers. I lived in the US for a while, and that’s when the travel bug caught me. I would get animated retelling my stories of living abroad and would always get asked for travel hacks and tips. You can read more here. 

Advice to new bloggers:
  1. Don’t give up! – Blogging is hard work, you have to commit to researching, writing, posting and promoting your blog for readers. It takes a lot of time and effort – you may have to stay up late nights, miss out on some gym sessions, not wash your hair for a week, just so you have time to blog. However, it is all worth it when you receive comments from other bloggers and readers who took the time to read your work!
  2. Follow the advice given by seasonal bloggers! It may seem like a daunting task or it may seem insignificant, but they’ve been there and done it. Their solid advice can even help you streamline your blog since they’ve done some of the work to get the tips, advice and suggestion you may need.
