It’s been six months since I started my blog, Inspired By Travel, and I will be eternally grateful for it.
Not only did it push me to write about my greatest passion in the world – travel – but it urged me to take more photographs to better tell the story. I have always enjoyed writing though I never knew I’d embrace photography as much as I have; I owe alot of that to crafting these posts.
Sharing my posts with a community of readers has been the best thing to come out of the blogging experience. Knowing that an image, words, or a quote evoked a positive emotion – whether it be across the world, or across the room – is for me, the most inspiring thing ever.
In that vein, I’d like to thank some bloggers for the awards they have nominated me for; I am so happy to have received them. Thank you to All the pretty jars and MiltonJohns Photography for the Versatile Blogger Award, and My thoughts, pics and personal opinions for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. These three blogs are all so different but inspiring in their passion and points of view. Click on the links above to find out why.
I wanted to share some posts that have made me smile; I nominate their blogs for those awards as listed below. I hope they will make you smile. Thank you!
