Accepting the Blogger Recognition Award

I am excited and truly honored to be receiving my first nomination for a blogging award. I want to give a huge “Thank You!” to Romina with her blog Mini Mummi Blogger for nominating my blog for the “Bloggers Recognition Award.”

What is the Blogger Recognition Award?

The Blogger Recognition Award is given to bloggers by bloggers to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication put into their blog. This is an amazing award to be presented with, because from my experience starting a new blog is, “No walk in the park.”
It requires tons of energy, time, patience and a wide variety of skills–some of which you might have to learn. So, receiving this award is a great honor and each blogger who receives it should be proud of what they have accomplished, but should also remember this isn’t the finish line, just a milestone. There is always more growth and knowledge to obtain. Take this award wear it with pride and keep building your blog.

What is Mini Mummi Blogger and who is Romina?

Romina is a first-time mommy to a beautiful little boy (he really is beautiful; he's got cheeks that are perfect for aunties and grandmas to pinch). As a new mom, she found it difficult to apply conflicting parenting advice from books, friends, family, strangers, midwives, and other baby experts. So she soon realized- she would have to be the one to decide what was best for her and her baby.
She is currently on maternity leave and is looking to put her writing/publishing experience to good use. She firmly believes that every mom knows what’s best for her own baby, and hopes that she can help other moms to navigate through the wealth of often conflicting information out there about pregnancy and motherhood. She created her blog, Mini Mummi Blogger, in the hopes of helping new and not-so-new moms become confident in their mothering abilities, and know that it’s okay to ask for help or decide which advice is suitable for her and her baby.

My Blog’s Story

I'm E. L. Lane, and I'm a first-time mom to a vibrant and tenacious three-year-old girl whom I affectionately refer to as Leia (because she's my little princess). I have a master's degree in Clinical Psychology, which was difficult to get, but, honestly, I find being a mother and blogger at the same time to be one of the most challenging undertakings in my life.
I've always had a passion for writing and decided to try out blogging after becoming a full-time stay-at-home mom. I hadn't written for years before starting to blog, and I need to write like I need oxygen to breathe.
I don't have a specific direction/niche for my blog at the moment, but I've written about: blogging; vlogging; and places, experiences, and restaurants I've enjoyed. 
I strive to post consistently and provide helpful content for you, my beloved readers, to enjoy.  
I can't say that I know exactly what I'll be writing about in the future, but I am growing and learning new things every day, and absolutely loving every minute of my blogging journey. Thank you so much for coming along with me on this wild ride.  
My favorite part about blogging is hearing from my readers, and I'm constantly looking for personal ways to connect with you.
