What is this blogger recognition?
No-one I have seen has really specified what this award actually is so I can give my own definition right? From what I can gather to given acknowledgement of fellow bloggers especially for small bloggers. Just keeping a blog least active every month deserves recognition in my eyes. But this word exists just as bit of community fun take it for that.

Oh Why I Decided To Blog
January 10th 2015 I entered into the wordpress world of blogging because google blogger is and was useless. A anime enthusiast known as lilac ran a blog Lilac Anime Reviews reviewing anime. I loved reading her thoughts and approach to anime, on my about me page I mention she is inspiration for wanting to blog in the first place. Lilac was the first spark along with my own passion to wish to express my thoughts somewhere that wasn’t real life and hopefully meet some fellow anime people. My blogger road has taken different detours ideas that either were big flop or success. Five years so far has been long enough to learn how I wish to blog these days.
Just Some Advice
Simple Is Your Best Friend
Stick to one focus for your blog. You’re allowed to takes detour from your one focus but I completely derailed from my old anime focus one year into blogging and writing other things I hadn’t planned on. It’s going to happen, blogging is about experimentation but experiment within your one blog focus, to keep things fresh and fun. Short posts are winners. You’ll learn fast some people have short attention spans these days, getting to the main point of your post, you’re a winner already. Designate one block of time out. Some bloggers like to be organised with a schedule, I’ve been there and we don’t mesh. We all have lives but you want to be dedicated to a hobby commitment like blogging. Block out an evening or few hours for your blog once a week. If you’re goal is get one post a week up, you’ll be set.
Every blogger wants that recognition from their fellows but to get it you have to take the initiative. I had to at the beginning. You would have to be extremely lucky to gain a following on your on or meet anime fellows with no effort. All that is required is by typing in that search engine “anime” “anime blog” “aniblogging” and discovering there are others out there who seek the same notice as you do. Liking, commenting on people posts is where you will reap the benefits. Give it some time, but within the first month of my blogging I met a few amazing blogger friends and it was so easy after to meet and discover others. Blogging is community and without that taking that initiative, I think blogging would cease to be what it is. A little effort is required but your blog bud will blossom pretty fast.
