  • Give a brief story of how your blog started
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers
  • Select 10 – 15 other bloggers you want to give this award to
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

 The Thanks

Many thanks go out to Kathy Knull for nominating us. You’ll find her at Saddles to Shorelines and Life as it Comes where she writes about horses, cottage life, family, friendships, writing, and reading. Visit her site to learn more about Kathy.

Brief Story

The Traveling Todds blends our love of roaming the highways and byways, with my love of writing and photography. The need to keep our family and friends informed of our adventures is the reason we started the blog. In the process, I hope the posts entice readers to visit the wonderful places we have enjoyed along the way. Stay tuned for our next adventure due to start in the next couple weeks.

New Blogger Advice

I’m hardly an expert on blogging, but here are a few things I keep in mind:

  1. Pick a focus, theme, or one of your passions to write about.
  2. Produce original content.

bonus tip

  1. Participate in the community by reading and commenting on other blogs that are similar to yours or that you would like to emulate.

    Thank you so much Linda & Jon! We’re so glad you enjoy our posts, and greatly appreciate the nomination. We always look forward to reading about your adventures as well. Take care and safe travels. 🙂


  2. Hi. I appreciate your nominating me. With all due respect, I have to decline. Last year I was nominated for an award and it ended up taking up quite a bit of my time. I’m not able to go through the process again.

    So, please don’t be offended.
    I like your blog and will continue to read your articles.
    Take care —

    Neil S.


  3. Thanks, Linda, for nominating I will follow up with the next steps you outlined. I enjoy your blog, especially the photos.Thanks for letting me feel I’m on your trips with you.
