#FowziBloggermendation: Nominate your favourite blog [NEW RULES]

A while ago, I pioneered an initiative that focuses on promoting bloggers in our community. Yes, “pioneer” sounds lovely doesn’t it? Anyway, I’ve noticed that there are still many bloggers who struggle to gain a following, or any sort of attention… especially as newcomers into the blogosphere.

Every blogger starts at the beginning:
When I started blogging, I had the same problem of non-participation, even though my statistics showed regular readers. My aim is different to other bloggers; and my opinion is not commercial. For me, touching ONE person genuinely or making ONE person think, is enough for me. Of course with no feedback to my blog, I didn’t know if I was moving anyone or not.

This was my first blog header and title.

This was my first blog header and title.

(Initial) Rules for #FowziBloggermendation:
Initially, the rules stated that you had to nominate your favourite blog, besides your own, using the #FowziBloggermendation hashtag. After careful thought, I realised that that excluded the newbies, as nobody would recommend them. This was of course going against the aim of this initiative, as I am striving to promote everyone’s blog ESPECIALLY the newbies. You can see the predicament here.

That being said, please see below for the new #FowziBloggermendation rules:

(Amended) Rules for #FowziBloggermendation:

  • Nominate your favourite blog, using the hashtag #FowziBloggermendation
  • Nominations take place every day on Twitter, Facebook or in the comments below.
  • Nominations close on Tuesdays at 14:00PM
  • Best blog will be announced on the following Thursday.
  • An example would look like this: “@Fowzia_Gamiet I’d like to nominate ToxicSweety’s Pensieve blog at toxicsweetyspensieve.wordpress.com for #FowziBloggermendation

    Thanx. At last my pain is felt. You know I was wondering the other day how am I going to get more traffic to my blog and I have reached out via social networking platforms but it has been slow. I think part of this process for me is about constantly reminding myself why Im doing it. Like you said one person somewhere is enough. So here goes my self nomination (feels a little weird) #Fowzibloggermendation #selfnomination RoxyUncut.wordpress.com. What makes my blog interesting in my humble opinion is that my blog is me in my truest form. A place where I can be myself and talk about what matters to, motivates and inspire me. Here on my blog I can be all that I am with no fears, no concerns of what people think or what would be the appropriate thing to do or say. By sharing of myself on my blog maybe it can help others to be who they truly are instead of who we think we aught to be that sometimes stems from expectations placed upon us!
