Bloggers Recognition Award - My Nomination!



WOW! I am absolutely honored to receive the Bloggers Recognition Award nomination. A huge thank you to Rumi for nominating me for this award. This award is given to bloggers by fellow bloggers for their hard work, dedication and achievement in recognition of the work that they do.

Rumi's blog is a rare and amazing food blog, featuring Assamese cuisine. It's definitely not a blog I have ever come across before and I am always excited to share new things. She is a stay at home Mom that has a major passion for cooking. She is doing an amazing job at presenting the Assamese Cuisine to the rest of the world and I highly recommend that you give her blog a peek.


Why Did I Start Blogging?

The reason I decided to start my blog is when I was battling some severe health issues. I began to have seizures when I was only 26 years of age. It progressed to the point that it affected my mobility, and it even affected my ability to feed, bathe and clothe myself. I began to document my journey toward recovery, and while I did eventually regain my mobility and the ability to do things for myself, like bathing, dressing, etc. I still struggle with other health issues. In 2012, I was diagnosed with lupus, and I found that this illness was the cause of my battle with seizures. I know the struggles that those with illnesses face and I wanted to share my knowledge with others, in hopes that maybe I could help other people that struggle with chronic illnesses. My journey isn't only about me, it's about helping others that are facing these kind of difficulties.


My Two Pieces of Advice for New Bloggers!

● Before you start your blog, think about what excites you most and what your topic is going to be. You want to blog about something that you are truly passionate about. The best way to gain readers, is to blog about things that other people can relate to. I feel it's all about helping your readers, with whatever it is they are seeking.

● When you are beginning your blog, you want to do what you can to share it with others. Whether it's emailing family and friends, sharing your posts on social media... find what ever works for you. Sharing is the best way to grow your fan base.

Good morning, plus an update!



Good morning everyone. 🌞

I have been meaning to add more content here, but I have been battling some serious health issues and it's interfered with my ability to do even the smallest daily tasks. I am so sorry for my lack in being here for you all, I'm trying really hard to get my feet back on the ground.

Please just bare with me as I try to get myself well so I can return and help you all again. I can not help others if I don't take care of myself first. I really hate saying that because I prefer to care for others but it's a reality I have to face.

If you all could give me some idea's on what you want to see posted here, just let me know in the comments below. I hope you all have a wonderful day and enjoy the rest of your weekend. 💐

These waffles are great for someone who needs more fiber or who is trying to lower their cholesterol. They're tasty, too. I love topping them with fresh or frozen fruit.

Mix well together.
There should be no lumps.
