The Sunshine Blogger Award


























I'm so happy to have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! I love the fact that "blogger awards" like this pass around the blogging community. It really allows bloggers to connect with other bloggers and we get to find out a little more about the bloggers behind the blogs as well! I love the Sunshine Blogger Award the most though I think because its an award nominated as a peer recognition for bloggers that inspire positivity and joy! So, thank you so much to Blogging Mama for the nomination! I really appreciate it!

BLOGGING MAMA'S QUESTIONS:

1. WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I'm from the small, but beautiful, Province of Nova Scotia located in Canada

2. WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING? Well, I actually started blogging way back in 2014. I wanted a space that was just mine where I could create and share anything I wanted. That blog is what started my love for blogging but after I had my daughter my blog sort of fell to the wayside and I gave it up for about a year and a half. In that time I really missed blogging so I decided to start a fresh new one, Maritime Mama!

3. WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING? Having a space where I can create anything I want! This blog is me. I get to express the wonderful, exciting, angry and sometimes even sad moments that happen in my life.

4. WHAT DO YOU LOVE LEAST ABOUT BLOGGING? The comparing that always goes along with blogging haha Every now and then I fall victim to blog comparing and it sometimes leaves me feeling like my blog isn't good enough or entertaining enough. But, I always manage to leave those thoughts in the dust and remember that I blog for me first and for everything else second.

5. HAVE YOU MADE ANY MONEY WITH YOUR BLOG? No, not with this blog...yet! I made a few dollars from sponsorships on my old blog and hopefully that opportunity arises again some day with this one.

6. IF YOU COULD GIVE NEW BLOGGERS ADVICE WHAT WOULD IT BE? Have fun with it! Blog about whatever it is that YOU want to blog about. Don't write what you think people want to see. Just be yourself and the right audience will stick around with you.

7. WHAT PLATFORM DO YOU PREFER TO BLOG ON? I've only every used Blogger for my blogs and I don't see myself switching any time soon.

8. HAVE YOU SUBMITTED YOUR BLOG TO HTTP://WWW.BLOGGINGFUSION.COM OR ANY OTHER BLOGGING DIRECTORY? No, I actually haven't heard of Blogging Fusion before. I'll have to take a look!

9. WHAT PLATFORM DO YOU USE MOST TO ADVERTISE YOUR BLOG? Twitter.

10. DO YOU THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO NETWORK WITH OTHER BLOGGERS AND WHY? Oh for sure! If I'm 100% honest I think the "blogging community" has changed drastically in just a few years where less and less bloggers are interested in communicating with other bloggers and very few people want to help one another out. Feeling like you belong within a community is wonderful and its always nice helping a fellow blogger out!

11. DO YOU COMMENT ON FELLOW BLOGS? DID YOU LEAVE ME A COMMENT? Yes I do! I try to set at least one day a week to sit down and read through my favorite blogs and leave comments and to find other blogs to read. And yes, I left you a comment :)

  2. This is so wonderful! I hear you about your least favourite thing about blogging. I can definitely fall into that trap every now and again. It's so easy to compare and wonder if there is value in what you're putting out...but those moments of doubt never seem to last long. Ultimately, having fun and enjoying the process is the most important thing! Thank you so so much for nominating me. I am truly honoured!
