Christian Blogging Community

Blogger Recognition Award

I have not done an award since almost a year ago, but I want to shine the spotlight on others, as well as allow ways for you to get to know me better.

His Perfect Timing so graciously…TWO YEARS AGO…nominated me for this award. Her blog is always packed full of scripture, application to life, and positivity. She was one of the first blogs I really connected to when I first started blogging.

What Is The Blogger Recognition Award

As I found on another website, The Blogger Recognition Award is given to bloggers by bloggers who appreciate the hard work, dedication and vast amount of hours we all put into each and every post, as well as keeping the website current and updated.

How I Started Inside Cup

Ever since I was 13, I knew I wanted to discuss topics believers face, especially dealing with struggles. In 2014, I had started a blog, but not on WordPress. It was not until 2016 I finally decided to take my thoughts to a bigger platform like WordPress, but it took over a year for me to really find my footing and become involved in the community.

I’m grateful for the first year because I learned a lot, and I had to learn to devote my blog first to God before I started writing for others. In 2017, I started becoming more consistent, creating series, and diving into topics encouraging others to draw close to Christ, even if some were difficult. What I’ve learned from my first full year of blogging helped me tune in better to my community and my audience. I’m so thankful the Lord is my Teacher, and continues to be.

Two Pieces Of Advice I Have For New Bloggers

1. Don’t Focus On The Numbers- It is so easy for people to get caught up in stats. I’ve discussed it a couple of times already.

If you start beating up yourself about not making a difference, yet you have even one follower, one comment, or better yet one CONSISTENT reader, you have something going. You ARE making an impact. Use it wisely.

Take this time to slow down. Be willing to admit it’s better having a smaller group while you grow so you have time to refine your skills as a blogger. You can’t learn everything overnight.

While you grow, remember what it was like when 5 views was a good day. Never take any individual for granted. Wouldn’t you want your own view and comment to matter to others?

2. Make Sure To Reach Out To The Community 

I’m not saying every day or even every week if it’s not possible. But find bloggers who share your niche. Bloggers who can stir inspiration and encouragement to you. Read their work. Like their work, if it speaks to you. Comment and discuss what you like or what spoke to you. This gets your name out there. It supports others.

In the previous point, I shared how easy it is for us to wonder about our writing. We aren’t alone. Many bloggers feel this way. Show them their writing leaves an impact. 

And you may very well find some people who encourage you along the way, and perhaps, become great friends in the process.

  1. Thank you again Sis and BIG CONGRATS to everyone nominated!! My advice would be to definitely pray over your work before you begin to write. I did this over one blog in particular and received a great response. Another advice that I’m also learning as well, is to find inspirational music and the perfect environment for you that helps allow thoughts to flow. I like listening to guitar/piano/ some classical instrumentals.

  2. Congratulations on the well-deserved award, and a lovely way to give a shout-out to other bloggers you love. Great bits of advice, especially with not focusing on the numbers as that can really suck out the joy of blogging. xx

    1. Thank you!!

      Numbers definitely are consuming and I’ve seen bloggers be dragged down by it, even myself (last year especially). But then I remember how the numbers someone with a bigger following is complaining about I would love. People who have less than me would love my numbers. It can be a really selfish thing to do. I hope people become aware of this. ❤
