Awards- SHOUT OUT to new followers

THANK YOU!  for the Spirit animal blog award!


Love this blog.


Well we both have mental health issues and are not afraid to say it.She believes we are all unique and hates labels.

She is super quirky.

She started this blog because of the injustice she has experienced with the benefit system for those who are unwell.


Once you’re nominated add the photo to your blog.

  • Write a short description about yourself and what your blog means to you.
  • if you were an animal, which animal would you be? (No buzzfeed answers please).
  • Nominate 10 bloggers for this award.


You can find out all about me in my ‘A DAISY IN THE WILLOWS WELCOME’. I started out this blog wanting to see if I could write and perhaps connect with people through my writing. So far I am succeeding.

I also wanted to express myself in a way that is authentic. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I’m pretty blunt and transparent.

A lot has changed since I started blogging in September 2015.

My biggest challenge with my blog is; the more involved I become volunteering with various mental health charities, is how  to include this aspect of my life in my blog – without breeching confidentiality and not offending people. I’m not 1o0% sure how this will play out but this is another goal of mine that I want to be successful in terms of  my blog.

If I was an animal…. today I would be the chameleon. I’m  good at adapting to new surroundings. I’m getting my 5 a day of insects( irritants) and consuming these pesty insects (or challenges in my life) and digesting them in a way that is good for my inner core.

Hope all you writers and bloggers appreciate this meme.

  4. Hi there, thanks so much for the nomination- I only started blogging last week and have no idea about this whole blogging sphere so far. What award is this and the criteria etc? Just wanted to know a bit more. And what photo do I need to ad to my blog? Thanks again.


    • Hi – if you read the rules. it tells you everything you need to do. Just thank who nominated you – Me 😀 and great a link to my blog.
      Then say a bit about you and what animal you would be if you could choose. Then pick 10 blogs to nominate that you think deserve the award and create links to their blogs. You can comment anywhere in their blog that they have been nominated but this can be time consuming. The picture you can type animal spirit blog award and go to images -save the images into your personal pictures so you can then upload it again to your wordpress images. . You don’t have to accept this. A really good idea if you are new is to watch youtube tutorials on how to get the most out of blogging from word press. Sorry I didn’t mean to confuse you or make you anxious. Welcome to the blogging world. I’m still learning. It does get easier 🙂
