Hey everyone! I have been very slack with my award postings, time just seems to have got the better of me, so have decided to throw them all together and bang them all out in this one post. I hope you don’t mind. To Paula, Lindsay,Taylor and Gina, I sincerely apologise for the delay in accepting the awards, but as the saying goes ‘better late, than never’ 🙂
Also, yet again, I am not sure if it is a WordPress issue or my computer but you will see a few ‘links’ would not link properly…but I could not wait any longer for WordPress or my computer to behave.
Three Day Quote Challenge
The RULES are:
1. Post on three consecutive days
2. Pick one or three quotes per day

4. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
I am going to rebel slightly, and will do all three quotes today. I also, am not going to nominate any bloggers, and will leave this challenge open to whoever would like to do this fun challenge.
A big Thank You to Paula from Simply Homemade By Paula who nominated me for the Three Day Quote Challenge in April 2016 ! Paula this nominations means so much 🙂 I have done a few of these Quote Challenges and enjoy them, so here are my quotes for today!

A brief history of my blog:
My blog started just over a year ago. I pondered about starting my own blog for quite some time. Then, when I decided to actually go ahead, the next question was, what I would blog about. Food did seem like the way to go, as I love food ! So Lynne’s Recipe Trails was born 🙂
My advise to new and upcoming bloggers:
Never give up ! Keep going. Perseverance is key !!!

- Anybody nominated, can nominate seven (lucky number) other bloggers.
- Anybody nominated, answers three questions.
- The questions you ask while nominating, can be any three questions.
If any of the questions asked are offending or simply do not want to be answered, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award. This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.
The questions I need to answer (and would like my nominees to answer):
1.Who was the first blog / blogger you heard of / read and did they inspire you to start? I am not too sure of the actual ‘first’ blog or blogger I had heard of, or read but I clearly remember reading Crazy for Crust (Dorothy) and being totally taken by her blog.
2.Do you see Blogging as a future career or just a side hobby? I am not sure, I haven’t really thought about blogging as a career At the moment, I am just having fun and enjoying what I am doing.
3.What is your all time favorite Album and Why?, How does it make you feel to listen to it? Oh, no ! That is difficult. I can’t say I have an all time favorite to be honest. I do like a lot of Albums though.
- Anita Kushwaha (Anita)
- Millie Thorn (Millie)
- A Kinder Way (Nikki)
