The Blogger Recognition Award


Hi friends!  I’ve been meaning to write this blog for a while now but have been running behind.  Firstly, thank you to Simplygailg for extending this award to me.  I am truly honored and grateful.  Be sure to check out her blog for fashion and lifestyle tips!

Below are the rules:

  • Select some other blogs you want to give the award to
  • You cannot nominate yourself or the person who nominated you
  • Write a post to show your award
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Attach the award to the post. (right-click and save then upload)
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide a link to the award post you created.

How Lipstick and the Word was created:

I saw a lot of crappy behavior going on in the dating world and I had a burning desire to do something about it.  I had been through some disappointing relationships and had heard even more disappointing stories from friends.  I am a naturally inquisitive person so I am always asking girls and guys about their dating experiences.  I started hearing similar stories and observing similar patterns  in the dating world.  I also wanted to share my mistakes and pain with others to help them avoid the same pitfalls.  I always knew I wanted to help people and I’ve always liked to write so a few years ago the two passions just merged together.

My advice to new bloggers:

  • Decide what you’re passionate about and go from there
  • Don’t measure the success of your blog by comparing it to others, you never know who’s reading your stuff!
  • Don’t let fear or intimidation of the blogging world stop you from creating your platform.  You will be surprised at how many people are interested in what you have to say!
  • There is no perfect way to do a blog, just get started!

Finally, I’d like to extend this award to the following bloggers:



Complete in Christ Ministries, Inc.


Opinionated Man


If you’ve previously been nominated for this award, pay it forward and nominate someone else.  Thanks for reading!

  2. Congrat!

    I haven’t been following you long but your blog is very inspiring.
    I like your second advice for new bloggers because we don’t know who’s reading our posts.
    And if you compare yourself to others you won’t be blogging long.

    Good job!
