Tag: Blogger Recognition Award

I have been nominated for another tag! Yay!  I was nominated by the lovely Ash & Lo at Window Sill Books Blog  for the Blogger Recognition Award!  Check them out, these 2 ladies make me smile every time they post!




  • Thank the blogger who nominated you
  • Write a post to show your award
  • 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 and let them know you nominated them


How CJR The Brit started:

Well, back in 2012 I decided I needed an outlet for the bookish thoughts in my head so I started my WordPress blog. I really wanted to help promote authors and get on the blogger ladder so I started signing up for tours with various PR companies and publishing houses.

And so it went on…..

A year ago I decided that I didn’t want to keep posting the same content as everyone else on tours etc and I had an idea in my head of how I want to make my blog look. So I renamed and started making my own posts.  I still have a long way to go but I am another step closer to how I envisage my blog to be…..its just finding the time to make my ideas fly!

In between all this my friend suggested we started a Facebook page so A Brit and a Yank Book Blog was also born.


Advice for new bloggers:

Be you

You don’t have to be the same as everyone else. Do you and what you want to post. I don’t stress about stats, likes or comments (ok sometimes I have a little wobble!)


The book blogging community on WordPress is like none I have ever met. Lovely and supportive, just the way its supposed to be.

The more you interact, the more you get to know people. The more you get to know people, the more lovelier the book world becomes.


I Nominate:

Phannie @ Phannie the Ginger Bookworm

Beth @ Reading Every Night

Rebecca @ The Fairest of All

Tracy & Rebecca @ Book Loving Pixies

Kristi @ Confessions of a YA Reader

I know I only nominated 5 but its late and I want to sleep!


I hope that you enjoyed hearing about how CJR The Brit began! I have enjoyed every moment of blogging so far!

  1. Thanks so much for the nomination. I have already done this award and my answers would likely be the same if I did it again but thanks so much for thinking of me and my blog. 🙂
    I really love reading how people started their blog, and great advice as well. As much as I think interacting with the community is important I think being yourself is even more so. It’s important we all enjoy blogging on WordPress isn’t it?
    Again thanks for the tag. 😀

    1. ❤ I also love reading how people started their blogs, gives a great insight, I’ll go back and read yours 😁

      Until I started interacting on here more this year, I didn’t realise what a fantastic community it was. ❤
