The Blogger Recognition Award

I was nominated by Clara at Reasons To Smile for this award. Thanks so much, Clara! She runs a beautiful little blog here. You should check it out!
1. Thank the person who nominated you and share a link to their blog.
2. Give a short story of how you stared your blog and some tips for other bloggers
3. Choose 15 bloggers to nominate for the award, and comment on each of their blogs so they know you nominated them.
4. Have fun!
How I Came to Start My Blog:
Well, I read a lot of blogs already and blogging looked like a lot of fun. I also read this post at The Write Practice about building your writers' platform, and decided I wanted to show my writing to someone besides my cats. :) So when I finally got my own email address, I started a blog where I would post pieces of my writing. Now it's more of a personal blog than part of a writing platform, but I think I like it better that way.
Tips for Other Bloggers:
 Blog about things you love, and don't worry about who reads it or how many followers you have. Just be you, and other kindred spirits will find you. :)

Also, this is something I learned from Emily over at Lynde Avenue. Ever wondered how to put a direct link to your blog in a comment? Even if you're like me and you're not very good at HTML codes, you can do it. Copy and paste this code into the comment, and then replace the letters in all caps with your information.
So mine looks like this:
<a href="http://www.thesilverflute.blogspot.com">The Silver Flute</a>
When I publish the comment, it turns out like this:
The Silver Flute
And the Nominees!
Chloee: Yes I'm Irish
Lydia: Planet Lydia
The other Lydia: Peanut Butter Girl
RussianPsych: A Russian Girl's Diary
A Girl Without A Name: Sunsets and Sundays
arushee bhoja: Unadorned Gifts

Hope y'all have fun with this award!
