The Blogger Recognition Award

August 31, 2017

 

A big thank you to Amanda Preston for nominating Embracing the Unexpected | Maree Dee for the Blogger Recognition Award. What an honor and encouragement.

A big thank you to Amanda Preston over at My Lovely Crazy Life for nominating Embracing the Unexpected | Maree Dee for the Blogger Recognition Award. What an honor and encouragement to be chosen by you.

Brief Story on how Maree Dee started Blogging:

Embracing the Unexpected began with a whisper from God, many years ago, “Maree I want you to write and tell our stories.”I knew God had taught me how to embrace life in the midst of the unexpected, but I wasn’t so sure about sharing it. At first, I ignored the gentle whisper convinced I had misheard God. You can read more about this in my post – Do you listen to God’s Whispers?  Click here.

Maree Dee’s Advice to New Bloggers:

  • Practice, practice, practice – The more you practice, the better you will get. “Just Write!”
  • Gather a team of encouragers
  • Educate yourself about blogging, social media, and writing. I signed up for Compel.
  • Be obedient –  if God called you to it – just do it.

Maree Dee’s Blog Nominees:  

This was not an easy task to nominate only fifteen bloggers( per the rules).  However, being the rule follower that I am, I have accomplished the task.  By no means does this list include all of my favorite bloggers.

Rules Of the Blogger Recognition Award:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Write a post to show your award
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give pieces of advice to new bloggers
  • Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

Thank you, Amanda, at My Lovely Crazy Life for nominating Embracing the Unexpected | Maree Dee

      Dawn,

      You made my day! It has been a difficult week, and I was beating myself up. I read a post about encouragement and had come to the conclusion I didn’t know how to encourage people. I know it was just a rough day.
