Thank you Cyranny for the nomination for this award.
It’s the brainchild of Ngobesing Romanus of Success Inspirer’s World.
The Solidarity Blogger’s Award is designed to showcase the bloggers who inspire..those who reach out to other bloggers with love and encouragement……those who help each other grow into the bloggers they aspire to be. Whether it is to grow their following, or impact their writing, this community is incredible. Go check them out. I did, several years ago in fact when my first blog was still alive and kicking. They helped me enormously.
What is a Solidarity Blogger Award Nomination?
SIWO (Success Inspirers’ World) is an International Friends Blogging Forum. The idea is to encourage team work and to blog together as a community. As an international friends blogging forum, Success Inspirer’s World provides an opportunity that every blogger is looking for – the opportunity to get more exposure and find more followers and readers.
So, there are rules (of course there are)…..and I will try to follow them. Not promising anything except that I will TRY.
1. Write a post on your blog thanking the person who nominated you.
2. Paste the award in the post.
3. Provide a link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
4. Tell Success Inspirers’ World, SIWO what you think about solidarity blogging. Is it worthwhile?
5. Nominate 10 bloggers for the award and inform them.
When I think of “solidarity blogging” I automatically think of a group of people from all over the world. I have met people from India, Africa, Polynesia, Pakistan, Poland, China, Canada, South America…….the list just goes on and on.
Each of the lovely people I have “met” through SIWA have encouraged me, as well as others, in our writing. I was encouraged to attempt poetry… granted I can not abide poetry, but I tried. The community was just so accepting of my efforts..and each gave me not just positive feedback but positive suggestions.
I am no longer a “member” of the group, I have a blog that actually works well for me after all. I don’t want any more “followers to tell the truth. I have a hard enough time keeping up with those I have now, and followers were never really a goal for my blog. But for new bloggers, for those who wish to eventually be published I can not encourage them more in joining up with these wonderful bloggers.
And in the spirit of solidarity, I would love to nominate every single one of the people who follow me around, or whom I follow around But, it isn’t gonna happen. Most have award free blogs……..know that I would name you here but I know how uncomfortable it makes some of you to have to say no thanks. Cyranny already nominated those who I would have that accept nominations………so, here’s what I will do.
If you have a NEW blog…one LESS than a year old…. YOU are nominated! It will at the very least make you go check out Ngobesing’s brainchild.
