Blogger Recognition Award

Thank you so much to Jules at For The Sake Of Good Taste for my nomination for the Blogger Recognition Award!

I am so happy to accept it. The rules of this award are:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • 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 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.

How The Thyroid Damsel Started

I have been working on The Thyroid Damsel for about 12 months now. It really started as a hobby and a way to ‘keep a diary’ of sorts for myself.

Now it has become my passion, and I have started to connect with so many people in the chronic illness community and have made some really good friendships with other bloggers and sufferers.

I have also had blogs and stories posted on the huge chronic illness site – The Mighty ( You can find my published articles in the Published Stories section on my homepage)

I am also an active member of The Chronic Illness Bloggers Network and have been put up for a number of awards and product reviews!

What advice would I give to New Bloggers?

  • Don’t focus on making money 💰. Although this is a bonus of blogging, it’s not a quick way to do it. You would be better off getting a paper round! 😃
  • Make sure you blog about something you care about. Don’t just pick random things. If you don’t care your readers won’t care.

My Nominations!

A huge congratulations to my 10 bloggers who I am nominating.

  1. Chronic Conditions Fit Mom – I have nominated Cherise for her blog. She is a type 1 diabetic, personal trainer and nutritionist. Anyone who is standing up in the chronic illness communities and getting awareness out and sharing stories is fantastic in my opinion!
  2. Mom and student blogger – I have nominated Angelina for her blog, where she writes about being a blogger and gives hints and tips.
  3. Laurens travel diary I really like Lauren’s blog about her travels around the world. She doesn’t just write about the beauty spots but also political aspects.
  4. Lost N Delerious – I have nominated Wonu. She writes about her travels and the people that she has met along the way.
  5. Fresh start everyday – I have nominated Ju for fresh start everyday. She writes about meal health issues, something close to her heart, her doggies and food and recipes.
  6. Books and other pursuits – I have Nominated Tracey for this blog. I love books and reading. Tracey reviews books that she has read in an honest and fun way.
  7. Her life as Amy – I really like the way Amy is honest and open. She blogs about life and some of the “naughty” things she does. A great read.
  8. The adventures of Trap Girl – I love this blog from Jessika & Teresa. This blog is different from many I’ve seen. It follows the stories and lives of One girl and her friends who are incarcerated. Very very interesting.
  9. Coffeable – I love coffee. This blog from Aaron gives a great read about different types of coffee and how to get a good cuppa!
  10. The Vagabond dreamer – I really enjoyed Chetnas blog. She writes about her travels in a fun and engaging way.
