How often do we look for third party endorsements before we purchase something new? An award from Tripadvisor for example can have a positive impact on the hotel or the restaurant. It is crucial for any start-up to gain the recognition for its products or services.
Awards not only acknowledge success but also recognize many other qualities: ability, struggle and above all the effort behind churning quality content. Am privileged and honoured to have received the first award for Postcard Chronicles from the blogger community. A heartfelt thanks to Gaelle Ouvrein from Lunefashion for nominating me for “Blogger Recognition Award”.
Gaelle blog’s about fashion and recent trends in the market. She has been writing about affordable ways of styling and personal shopping which has garnered quite an audience. Check her page to know more.
Story of my blog
Postcard Chronicles was born out of my obsession for travel. Postcard chronicles is a platform for people who want to travel young, who want to explore the world without having to risk their bread and butter. I believe there is no one size fit all path to a happy and blissful life. As much as I long to live a hippy life, I also happen to love my job and I think life is about making choices ; pursuing our passions, figuring out what we want, realising what makes us happy and then finding a realistic way to make it happen.
Postcard Chronicles is a collection of my own travel stories, my travel sketches and a list of good eats that fill my soul.
Tips for new bloggers
- One of the main qualities that a blogger should possess is perseverance. Posting consistently on your page not only keeps bloggers disciplined but also help readers to utilize the platform well.
- Discover your writing style. But how do you do that? By experimenting. There are so many styles: catchy lead, comfy casual, incorporate a call, tutorials/guides etc. Your style will be unique to you, so get on with experimenting to find it, take risks, make mistakes. It’s all a part of the process.
