How To Get A Blogger Award

July 30, 2012 | By Adrienne Smith

Blogger AwardJuly must be the month for blogging awards because I sure have visited a lot of blogs this month where people have been nominated.

I personally love these types of posts because that means that some of your blogging buddies really think very highly of you ya know!

So have you received one yet?

Well, I’ve actually been nominated several times for one award and once for another one this month so I decided to do my post a little differently and share my message with you today in a video.  I wanted to share with you how you can get a blogging award if you haven’t already.

Hey, you do want one right!  Okay so you don’t actually get anything from it but I think they’re kind of fun and it’s an honor that your blogging buddies have thought of you in this way actually.

Anyway, I’ll share with you in my video everything about this plus how you can get a blogging award too!  Ready!

I mentioned in the video that last year about this time I shared in two different video posts more about me.  If you missed those and are curious, here are those links.

http://adriennesmith.net/this-is-not-just-another-monday/

Since writing this post I’ve been nominated a few more times so I want to be sure and also thank Julie Dunlop of learn-grow-prosper.com, Carol Lynn Rivera of websearchsocial.com, Jamella Smith Biegel of jamellasblog.com and Yvonne Warner of princessshimari.com.  Thank you so much ladies.

One more obligation I still need to include are the photos of both awards.  I certainly wouldn’t want to end this post without fulfilling this one.

Sisterhood Award XXXX Kreative Award

Did you enjoy my video?  Did you receive an award?  Are you upset with me for not nominating anyone?

I know what an honor it is to just be recognized but I love so many of you that naming just a few is hard.  Just know I love you all and appreciate you so much.

Enjoy the rest of this month and I hope to be chatting with you in the comment section.

Speak with you soon.

Hi Adrienne,

Nice post! Blogs are great but videos give a peak at the person behind it, especially when telling about you. I’m still a bit more of a web guy with a blog that compliments it, but sites like yours do help me a lot and make me a better web guy.

Thanks, Bill

Thanks Bill, I appreciate you saying that. That means a lot and video is really something a lot of people enjoy. You know you don’t always have to be in front of the camera in order to attract enough people to your content. I love watching videos and there are millions of other people who do as well. Maybe you’ll come over sometime in the near future.

Thank you for your comment though, I really appreciate it. Now, you enjoy your week okay!

Whadda ya mean you don’t get anything from it? I got a new car when I was nominated for the Sisterhood award………..:).

There are kind of fun; I notice the really serious bloggers usually don’t play, but everybody likes a little recognition for their efforts, right?

Great vid, hope you had a fabulous weekend.

Hi Adrienne,

Just love watching your videos. Congratulations on receiving both awards and several times – well deserved.

That must have been something, to actually fly a two-setter plane, I’ve been a passenger in a 4 setter, that was hair-raising enough!

I hope you have yourself a wonderful relaxing day on Wednesday – spoil yourself.

Hi Julie,

Thank you so much and glad you enjoyed the video. Wanted to do something different.

I was very honored to get recognized so many times so that definitely put a huge smile on my face.

I was scared to death girl, that plane was small. Heck, he thought it was funny and I like to you know what in my pants. I make a great passenger but pilot, not so much.

I am going to do my best to relax a little more on Wednesday so wish me luck. This packing is about to kill me.

Enjoy your week Julie and thanks again.

Congratulations on your awards and I have to say that I “purposely” went around you Adrienne, because I know that you’re covered.

Yes, I’ve learn a few things about you. Seems that you’ve mangled with some famous people too, and I don’t blame you for not ever wanting to get married again :)

Thank you Sylviane and I so know that but you just gave plenty of other people an opportunity. They were very well deserved so I totally get that. I hope they enjoyed the recognition! :-)

Ah, I shared a couple more huh! Yeah, I’ve had my share and have a few more I can probably share but I’ll have to save those for another time. I’m running out of things you guys don’t know about me.

Thanks Sylviane and you enjoy your day!

I am so glad that you accepted these awards and I loved the way you mentioned them through the video that’s indeed a unique way to express your gratitude about these wonderful blogger awards. And you have been nominated so many times by so many awesome bloggers, which just speaks volumes about you. :)

It’s always wonderful to know more about you, and it’s a pleasure to see you online each time you put up these videos. Oh yes! I can see that happy dance for your birthday coming on the 1st of August – you just seem to grow younger each year. :)

Thanks for sharing and wishing you all the very best for your birthday and may you have lots of happiness and contentment, and more of such awards and recognition. :)

You’re too kind but I appreciate it when someone recognizes me. I feel so loved and accepted and it’s a great feeling. I hope everyone feels the same way when they are blessed by others.

Glad you enjoyed the video and I just wanted to do something a little different. I haven’t shot a video in awhile so I’m so behind with everything these days. My Mom’s move is really taking up a lot of my spare time but I’m thrilled to death about it.

Keep getting younger! Oh girl, the check is in the mail. ;-) You really are too kind to me because I’m starting to see the wear and tear but that’s okay. I’ve earned every bit of it.

I appreciate the early birthday wish Harleena. Had to throw that plug in there, I’m having another milestone this year. Dang, they sure are happening more and more.

Thank you again and for your wonderful comment. You are a true light in my life. ♥

Enjoy your week.

I’ve had a lot of sad things happen in my life but that just makes me that much more grateful for all the good things. I’m SO excited about my Mom moving in next door. This move is about to kill me but I will be sleeping for a week when it’s over. lol…

I know you’ve been nominated and it’s always so nice to just thank everyone at least. I wasn’t sure if I was going to do a post or not but after they kept coming in I thought I better.

Thank you for the birthday wish, I appreciate that. My Mom will be coming into the city to see her new place and take me to lunch so I’ll definitely enjoy the day!

Hugs are coming back to you girl and thank you again so much. You enjoy your week.

Well Hello Adrienne
Having followed your blog for sometime it is no surprise that you get nominated for many awards and thanks for letting us see behind the scenes with such a personal video.

Being technical in nature, I guess I am more inclined to focus on the technicalities than the ‘soft’ side of my business which is of course all about building relationships with others that share your passions.

Thankfully however you are a guiding light when it comes to making connections and I hope you have a great birthday and recover soon from the stress of getting your mum settled next door.

I definitely wanted to do something different with the video post. Glad you enjoyed it.

Your business should be about building relationships so you need to start considering doing that more. Trust me, it surely will make a huge difference.

I definitely will enjoy my birthday, I’ll get to spend some of it with my Mom. I won’t see the light of day with this move until the middle of next month but that’s okay, it’s worth it.

Thanks again and enjoy your week.

Anyway thanks to awards, they made you share more about you ;) I really like that you have shared a video saying stuff about you rather than listing all in here.

I think everyone knows how much you all mean to me so I didn’t want to show any favoritism. So, you can always do it this way Corinne.

Hey Jens,

Thank you Jens, glad you enjoyed it.

Yeah, I took piano lessons and couldn’t read that music for the life of me. So my teacher would play the song and I would listen and then figure it out. I got pretty good but I was probably 10 or so. I think all I can play now is chopsticks.

My brother can play the guitar but I couldn’t ever figure out the darn cords. It was too confusing for me. But I love to listen to people play the guitar.

Thank you for that Jens, that was so sweet. It was definitely an honor.

You deserve the Kreative Blogger Award Jens.. You have a fabulous blog and I so enjoy reading it. As a matter of face, I’ve already grabbed your Kindle book. I saw your stream in Triberr so I’ll be by to comment but I had to jump on that one. Can’t wait to read it.

Then my balloon burst when one of the people I recommended (a “big” blogger) told me “I don’t do that, sorry” – really?! Not a thank you or anything! Anyway, I enjoyed this award “silliness” and have been recommended by several people for the Kreativ and Versatile Awards. Yah!

btw: with the open web these days, just do a search for Neil Diamond pics and you just might show up in Google images! :-)

Lovely to see your face too deary!

and lastly, Happy Happy Happy Birthday too!!!

Hey Kesha,

I know the feeling, the first time this happened to me I was like a little kid. It might not be some big huge special thing that anyone would take seriously but to me it’s just showing our appreciation and recognition to all our great blogging friends. That “big blogger” probably thinks that’s beneath them so that would have bumped them down several notches in my book. Shame on them, not even saying thank you.

I very seriously doubt it Kesha. This was back in the late 80′s early 90′s when photos were still being developed through negatives. The internet wasn’t big yet so I’m sure it’s tucked away in someone’s photo album. Yeah, back in the day girl when we both looked much better. ;-)

Thank you Kesha and I appreciate the early birthday wishes. Can’t believe another year will soon be behind me.

Have an awesome day!

Congratulations, you are so deserving of the awards. I love your videos – you are a natural at them. I could never fly in a 2 seater (without getting sick).
Happy Belated Birthday….I’m a day late and a dollar short :)

Thank you Lisa, I really appreciate that!

This was back in the late 70′s and I definitely trusted the guy flying but I had no idea he was going to do that to me. When he let go we took a nose dive and I think I was too scared to throw up. I’m really surprised I didn’t pee in my pants. One of those times you have to react you know! I never forgave him for that either.

Actually, you’re a day early! My birthday is tomorrow.. So thank you for the early wish!

You enjoy your day now.

Hi Adrienne,

Your video was anything but boring. I found it to be quite entertaining!

I was quite honored to receive 2 sisterhood nominations. It’s wonderful being recognized by your fellow bloggers. My nominations and post are a bit late as I was out of town last week, but I think you know it goes without saying, I will be nominating my blogging guru. :)

It’s wonderful that your mother is moving in next door! I live less than 5 minutes from my mom. It’s great having her close by.

Have a great week and congrats on your multiple nominations!

Hi Jamella,

Ah thanks for that, so glad you didn’t find it too boring. I know talking heads sometimes just lose people’s attention.

You are very well deserving of those nominations as well Jamella and I hope you had a great time at your convention. I know you’ve been gone so I’m looking forward to hearing all about it. I also appreciate the nomination from you as well. It’s always graciously accepted.

I’m so excited about my Mom moving next door although I’m so worn out from helping her pack and clean the house up. We’re going to have an estate sale and that’s just about as much work getting things set up as packing and moving her. But it will be over next month, the move that is.

Thank you Jamella and you have a wonderful week as well.

You deserve every award you get, Adrienne. One thing I must do is be more regular with my posting. One thing about your blog is anyone can guarantee your weekly posts. Now I’ve joined Networking Superstars I have to make more of an effort to post each week!

You definitely have to get on a more regular schedule, at least once a week for sure. You definitely want people to look forward to what you share and if you’re going to get more attention from joining this community you have to post regularly. You can do it, I have faith.

I appreciate your comment, thank you so much. Enjoy your week.

I look forward to when I will receive a nomination for an award. I know what to do; (musing) I will cut up pictures of two awards my blog qualifies for and paste them around my writing desk.

That should be inspiration to build up my act so as to qualify – and a reminder during all writing project to come up with something that befits an award winning blog. :)

So happy for all the good things going for you. Thumps up and more gold coming your way!

I’ve never been nominated for anything web related until this week. I owe it all to you. I’m so glad i followed you advice last year about continuing to build relationships through commenting.

Oh girl, your video will rock! I didn’t want to do the same old boring post with all the rules and stuff so I just decided what the heck. I thought this would be a little more fun and then trying to come up with more things you don’t know about me. Since then I’ve thought of a few more things so I guess there is still more to share. lol…

I happy you were nominated girl and I’m so very happy you took my advice. Heck, I knew everyone would love you. Jeez, how can they now. I can’t wait to see that video now.

Thanks for he birthday wishes… Can’t believe another year is behind me now. Dang, they are flying by now.

First I want to thank you for the mention of thanks. Your video is awesome, you should be doing more. It is so much fun to see you and feel more connected.

Sharing all your stuff was great! Left at the alter? Hey, what kind of crazy person would do that?
Love the story about the photo with you and Neil Diamond…that was so funny!
And never say never…maybe you will be married again lol.
Mom is moving next to you…that is going to make your life much easier.
And…Happy Birthday my friend!

Ah, you liked my video! Happy to hear that and glad you got a kick out of this one.

Yep, left at the alter by the guy who I thought was the love of my life. Long story the two of us but it was a very devastating time and he’s regretted it ever since. Good! lol…

I was so excited when I looked up and saw who had darn near knocked me to the floor. Heck man, you can knock me down any day! :-)

Oh, I’ll never get married again. That I can definitely say for sure. I just don’t think marriage is for everyone and I know it’s not for me.

Yes, I’m so excited about Mom moving next door. I’m worn out from packing her every weekend but excited just the same. The end is in sight.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. Can’t believe another year is behind me. My, how time does fly!

Thanks Donna and you enjoy the rest of your week as well.

I love seeing you on video Adrienne! And these are FASCINATING little tidbits about yourself! You were left at the altar?!? Clearly, the guy was a big time loser! I would have most CERTAINLY thrown up having to fly a 2-seater airplane (since if you read my Kreativ Blogger post…I’m deathly afraid of airplances!). I’m also a LEO, by the way.

You are the ultimate diplomat with these awards, by the way. Loved, loved, loved this post!

Oh yeah, I was 27 years old and we had been together for five years. He was the love of my life so that just made it that much harder. Hey, he lost out on the best thing that ever happened to him so his loss for sure. :-)

I almost threw up but since I had to fly the darn thing I chose saving my ass. I’m not afraid of flying but I certainly don’t want to drive the darn plane.

You’re a Leo too! Oh yeah, no wonder I like you so much. We rock girl!

I really enjoyed your video and it was good learning more about you. I had to chuckle when you made a comment about playing instruments earlier in the video. I was terrible at music when I was at school and never understood how to read notes.

Congratulations on being nominated for these awards. You truly deserve it. You’re such an expert in your field, particularly when it comes to building relationships online. We all get such a warm welcome when we come to your blog. Sometimes I think we were friends offline first! And then the friendship continued online. :-)

Yeah, I remember when I started piano lessons I was horrible. I couldn’t understand any of that but once she played a piece I just seem to be able to pick it up. I don’t understand how to read music for the life of me.

Thank you so much, it’s been an honor and a privilege to be nominated and even recognized. I feel so very blessed. So happy to hear you feel that way and I do hope that I’m able to help anyone who still wants to understand how to have a successful blog and why those relationships are so important. I’m so happy to hear that you feel so welcome when you stop by.

Thank you Hiten and hope you’re enjoying your week.

Bonjour Adrienne,

What strives me this one – The amount of energy you exude, and the passion I can hear in your voice. But I guess winning numerous awards will do that. I love people that have an accent, so when I listen to the words that come out of your mouth – It brings a smile to my face.
