Thank you to the lovely Baisakhi at https://nerdsakhi.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for this award – I am honoured that she should think of me as being worthy of consideration among such worthy winners. I am a blogging newbie and owe my success to my Primary School teacher, Miss Evelyn Walker, my Secondary School teacher, Miss Paterson, Microsoft, Kindle and Apple, who all taught me the value of reading and writing, the impact of the written word together with the appropriate image, using them to entertain, inform, provide inspiration, support and advice. I hope I manage to succeed doing at least some of these. Now which dress shall I wear to the ceremony…?

I began my blog after writing guest recipes on the blog of The Raw Chocolate Company.* I enjoy writing, juicing, food, and am passionate about health and nutrition, so I decided to combine them all in a blog!
I was overwhelmed when I first set up my blog. I have no technical expertise other than what has been self-taught. I would recommend participating in the Blogging 101 course on https://wordpress.com and chatting to other bloggers. Also, write about your passions, your enthusiasm will come across to your readers, the more you write the sooner you will find your own voice and stand out from the rest writing on similar topics. I follow nerdsakhi because we share a passion for books and writing. Her youthful enthusiasm shines through her writing and you can’t help but look further into the books, poems and topics she discusses.
I nominate the following:
