The start of my Blogging journey was one full of research and the need to know all I thought I could about what it took to be a Blogger. Yet the one thing I didn’t prepare for or expect was the amazing amount of Support that was possible from Blogging Communities and Fellow Bloggers.
I was so amazed at the amount of support others were more than willing to offer I and it was then I realized being a successful Blogger is about more than Pageviews, Stats, Followers and Likes. It’s All About Support! Learning that helped me to create a community of Bloggers I am proud to call friends. Whether we are virtual or meet IRL (in real life) they are a group of Ladies I know care about my cares and support my dreams.
As I thought on this more I wanted to find a way to acknowledge the support they give both to me and to others. Instead of finding one I am creating one.
The Sparkle Support Award
The Sparkle Support Award is an award that any Blogger can give to another Blogger to acknowledge them for being a true supporter of those around them. It can be through Comments, Sharing, LinkUps or simply being an ear for one another’s vents and celebrations.
I chose the name well because I love any and all things that sparkle. Plus the very definition is perfect for a Blogger who is willing to pass on as much support as they are given.
a : to throw out sparks
Any Blogger who is willing to show support to another is throwing out sparks of kindness and care and showing that it isn’t just about them. We all know to be successful we need each other.
b : to give off or reflect bright moving points of light
When you reflect the success of others by supporting them you are definitely showing your inner sparkle
c : to perform brilliantly
’nuff said! 😀
Now, giving The Sparkle Support Award is not hard. Receiving it is a blast as well. I mean who doesn’t want a bit of extra Sparkle in their lives?
To help, I decided to make a few Guidelines.
