The Encouraging Blogger Award was created by Lisa Mitchell of Fluxing Well with the ‘purpose to recognize bloggers who bring encouragement’ with their blogs. I so love that she created this bloggers’ award and appreciate that now we get to acknowledge other bloggers with a nomination because of their writing.
I want to first say a big, “THANK YOU,” to Daphne FreeAt50 blog for nominating me for the Encouraging Blogger Award. I am completely honored. There are so many great bloggers in the writing community and I remember when we connected and actually guest posted on each other’s blog.

Now let me tell you a little more about Letstakeamoment.com
When and why did you start blogging?
I began my blog in August 2016. Let’s take a moment began out of a heart to write about taking time to pause and consider real life moments constantly taking place every day. We need to become more aware of these moments and I want to examine them with my readers. I wanted to bring encouragement in my writing and inspire them to take moments to experience life happening all around us every day.
What is your blog about?
As I mentioned in the previous question, it is my passion to inspire people to take moments to pause and experience real life happening all around them. I wanted my blog to bring more awareness to our everyday real life moments we experience. How can we reflect on these moments and make sure they just do not pass us by. It is important to become more attentive to these times and capture their importance. Reflection to me to brings inspiration to my readers. I want to bring out a variety of these moments because every day we can truly learn from each of these experiences we walk in.
What is one piece of advice you would give to encourage new bloggers?
One important piece of advice I would give to new bloggers would be to make sure they understand why they are blogging and how much work will be necessary to be successful. Decide if this is just a hobby or something more. It will take a lot of dedication and time to grow, so make sure they do not compare themselves to someone else’s growth. Learn from others and connect with the writing community on social media.
