In attempts to follow the same guidelines as others I will also answer questions in hopes it encourages other bloggers to do the same.
1. Thank the blogger(s) for nominating you and give the link to their blog!
Thank you Jen at Diffusing the Tension, for nominating me for The Blogger Recognition Award! It takes a lot of time and effort to make and sustain a blog, so I am all for recognizing others who have done such an excellent job!
2. Write a post on your site displaying the award that describes why you started your blog.
I started Just Call Me Jess to educate, motivate and normalize mental illnesses within our community. My hope is to reduce stigma by creating conversations that are otherwise avoided or opinion based.
3. Write 2 pieces of advice you have for new bloggers.
I advise new bloggers to find their niche and their voice! It is easy to see what others are doing and attempt to mimic it to gain the same results…it won’t happen. Multiple things can happen, all of which result in wasted time and energy.
4. Nominate (and notify!) more bloggers that they’re awesome.
