“My aim is to put down on paper what I see and what I feel in the best and simplest way.”― Ernest Hemingway
Susan Slade ( https://susiesopinions.wordpress.com/) recently nominated me for a Word Press Blogger Recognition Award. For this I am very grateful and honored.
Her website offers readers articles radiating with humor, warmth, a sense of fun and appreciation of the human condition. Her approach is eclectic and offers a wide variety of topics to enjoy.
My own blog has been around for a long, long time. Until I retired I rarely visited it or posted articles to it. Readership was lacking and so was content. When I retired in 2010 I devoted more time to the site. An upgrade in my article content and general attitude were implemented.
I strive to produce articles that are entertaining, educational, fun and which explore the lighter side of the human condition.
I graduated from journalism school many years ago when Remington Selectric typewriters were the norm and typing errors had to be corrected using whiteout solutions.
I offer new writers/bloggers four pieces of advice:
(1) Take time to compose your thoughts and write when the creative mood is strongest.
(2) Invest the time to read other blogger’s material. You just might pick up a thing or two along the way.
(3) Comment frequently and answer fellow blogger’s comments on your own work.
(4) Think outside the box when writing an article for any of the WP Challenges. Diversity is its own reward.

As a final act of acceptance of the award I am supposed to offer a limited number of blog sites that I personally consider worthy of your reading time and interest.
If you will take the time and glance at my Nibbled News Colleague widget on the right side of your screen rest assured that all the folks contained in that list are worthy of your limited reading time and interest.
Again I thank Susie for the nomination and wish all contributors to the site the best of luck in their creative blogging careers. — gc
