Blogger Recognition Award Nominations!

You may have noticed my excitement on social media – Break A Leg has been nominated, not once, but twice for a Blogger Recognition Award! I am honoured and absolutely delighted that both and Tim Burge nominated me and my blog.

The Blogger Recognition Award is given to bloggers by bloggers and it is a way to show appreciation for the commitment and hard work that is needed to start a blog. 

Rules for accepting this Award:

Take the time to thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog

  1. Write a post to show your award
  2. Give a brief story about how your blog started
  3. Give pieces of advice to new bloggers
  4. Select 10-15 new bloggers you want to nominate
  5. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them, provide the link to the post you created.


The Award

So I very humbly accept the award nominations, writing a blog and maintaining is not as easy a combination as it sounds and I’ve started a second blog now, too (I must be mad!)

How I started Break A Leg…

I started Break A Leg back in 2013 having written for online theatre reviewing publications and deciding I could have a try at this caper, myself. It started out as a west midlands based theatre review blog and has since become so much bigger than that. Although I’m regularly at the theatre in the Midlands, I also review all over the country, interview all manner of performers and creatives from across various genres of entertainment. I also include gig reviews and stand-up comedy so I’ve really broadened the scope. There are so many theatre bloggers out there that evolving is what’s driven Break A Leg forward and I was also absolutely delighted that the Break A Leg Awards which I debuted last year have really taken off. Read all about those here: Break A Leg Awards 2016 and here: Break A Leg Awards 2017

Advice For New Bloggers

  1. Select a niche and write within that niche, try to keep your social media posts for the blog within the parameters of your niche.
  2. Choose a subject you’re passionate about, it will shine through if you love what you’re writing about.
  3. Networking, Networking and yet more Networking! I can’t stress that enough.
  4. Remember that you’re the face of your blog and your reputation will precede you.
  5. Help your fellow bloggers, especially those who write within the same niche – it’s not a competition, we’re all in this together and everybody wants to get something different out of it.

My Nominations

  1. Frantastic View – an amazing blog from Francesca Mepham which is reflective and positive.
  2. Mama Geek – Zoe Corkhill’s fantastic blog which is a font of all knowledge from both Zoe and her children’s perspectives.
  3. Life Of Ellie Grace – there’s a great mixture of everything on this blog and I happened upon it while seeking Manchester based bloggers for a PR job!
  4. I Talk Telly – From Elliot Gonzalez who loves telly as much as I do, so he talks about it!
  5. As Seen On Jean – a really chatty blog which I recently discovered and pop in on from time to time, now.
  6. Cityscape Bliss – I happened upon this blog when I attended a fantastic blogging workshop and it’s a real inspirational read.
  7. The Best Version Of Kelly – I really like the mixture of reviews and posts on this blog and I know that Kelly is new to it – but she’s doing a fine job.
  8. Inept Ramblings – Chloe Buckles is the owner of this one and I think it’s a great conversational read about life’s observations. Chloe has been known to guest blog for me, too. Thank You Chloe!
  9. Life In A Breakdown – This blog is brilliant for hints and tips plus there is something that everyone will identify with on there. Plus I’m supporting a fellow midlands blogger who is doing an incredible job.
  10. Carry On Blogging – I am an unashamed Carry On film fan, brought up watching them and still love to watch them now. So this blog is right up my street, ooh matron!
