Lucy Melinda from purpleslobinrecovery( one of my very own best friends and a woman after my own heart) nominated me for this award. ITs been a long time since I have been nominated for any award . Thank you, Lucy.

Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog. (Done)
Write a post to show your award.( Here it is)
Give a brief story of how your blog started.
In 2014, when I was 45, I started writing. I had no income. No, I was not starving or homeless but just didn’t have money to call my own. I had spent every penny of my end of service benefit and so was dependent on my husband for money. I was ok with it to tell you the truth but I am extravagant by nature and his allowance would not cover my extra expenses. I decided to take up writing to make an income. Most sites I visited required me to have a blog and provide a link to a blog. At first I desisted but finally gave in and in August 2014, I started writing a blog. It has brought me a lot of friends, some of whom I talk to on the telephone too, and am enjoying blogging thoroughly.
Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
1. Blogging opens you up to yourself before it opens you to the world outside. Be honest and the world will see your honesty.
2. Every human being has problems, issues, trouble spots. If you write about your own or read those of others, you will understand that the world is a much smaller place than you can even imagine.
