My First Blogging Award!

Many thanks to Bogdan of Pointless Overthinking for the Mystery Blogger Award nomination! Olé!

Okoto Enigma created the award, “because there are a lot of amazing blogs out there that haven’t been discovered, yet. And, most of these blogs deserve recognition.” (as she states on her website) For that reason, she “decided to create her own award; and nominate people who can also nominate others; and so on. This is one of the best ways to create a friendly community and build a link between bloggers in the blogosphere; as everyone gets nominated and they too can spread the fun by nominating more people for the award.”

She decided to call the award “Mystery Blogger Award.” Why? Because the meaning of her name, “Enigma” is “mystery.” As she wrote, “There are so many blogs that are still a mystery to us; and when we get to know them, it’s divine! And we find friends where we least expect.”

Mystery Blogger Award” is an award created for “amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.” Okoto Enigma
