Kristian, from Tales from the mind of Kristian has kindly nominated me for the Solidarity Blogger Award! Although I didn’t expect this nomination, it didn’t surprise me, since we have been working together on the Word of the Day Challenge blog, since last June. Kristian is a great collaborator, and the kind of gentleman it is always a pleasure to share this blogging adventure with. Thank you, Kristian!
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.
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.
To me, solidarity is a must to make this blogging adventure worth it. Of course, there are some free electrons out there, people who don’t feel the need to interact with others, other than the occasional reply to a comment. That’s fine by me, but I couldn’t blog that way.
I started blogging three years ago, and it wasn’t long before I begun sharing other bloggers’ work, and I got published on other sites too. I partnered with people around the world, participated to challenges, and joined countless Meet & Greet parties.
All of this led to being part of a community that goes way beyond blogging. On a daily basis, we share a little bit of our lives, discuss our thoughts, and sometimes even confide feelings we wouldn’t tell the people closest to us.
Even if I would prefer that this never happened, the best proof that solidarity is crucial in blogging, is when some of us team up to stop someone from doing the irreparable. Unfortunately, on a couple of occasions, a blogger expressed distress through a post. Each time I witnessed this, a wave of support and love followed, and help was seeked.
And I like to think that if I ever needed that kind of support, I would get it too.
There are so many people I could nominate. I know that some of men and women in my list already got nominated and some have award free blogs. So just consider this as a sample of the lovely bloggers who have given solidarity all its sense, in The Cove!
Okie, that’s not ten people. I cheated. And the list is not complete either. But real life is calling….
Again, thank you, Kristian 🙂
