**Blogger Recognition Award**


I am feeling very honoured and excited to have been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by fellow book bloggers, so thank you to everyone who nominated me. The first person who nominated me was Shanannigans at https://readsandreels.com/ so a special mention to this awesome blogger

So this is what is required of me.


1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

2. Write a post to show your award.

3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.

4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.

*5. Select 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to.

*6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

I started my blog in late August 2015 when I was off work after suffering an injury at work, I was bored one day and decided to start up a book blog and created The Book Review Cafe. I never really thought about where my blog would lead, and never in a million years did I think any one would end up reading my reviews or follow it.

My two pieces of advice to bloggers

It’s ok to say “no” to a publisher or author. Don’t feel you have to accept every book you are offered, believe me if you do this from the start you won’t find yourself drowning in books. I hold my hands up here and admit this was the biggest mistake I made when I first started blogging.

Get involved in the blogging community. The book blogging community is extremely welcoming and offers support and advice. Join the fabulous group Book Connectors at https://m.facebook.com/groups/1466353170351020/ it’s a place for authors and bloggers, it was one of the first groups I joined and everyone’s so friendly and helpful.

Personally I would like to nominate everyone who runs a book blog as there really are some fantastic ones out there, but as I have to choose 15 I’m going to tag bloggers who I think haven’t been nominated yet and they all work really hard to run their awesome blogs.

    You have quite the amazing following for having started something during some time off 😉 Your blog is so inspiring that it is hard to believe it rose from boredom. Thank goodness though! You are such a welcomed part of my daily life in the blogosphere. Thank you for including me ❤
