How My Blog Started

It all started with a desire to keep writing. For ten years I blogged at Caitriona in order for family and friends back “home” to keep up with us as we raised our children. Then the kids grew up.  So, I decided to focus on something we need every day – Love. I believe to live well we need to love and be loved. A love that is  life-giving.

Advice to new bloggers

  1. Be an active part of the blogging community. This is a lesson that I am just learning this year. For a long time that was not my intention, and I am finding it all the more enjoyable connecting with other bloggers.
  2. Post regularly.
  3. Don’t be afraid to let others know you’ve posted recently.
  4. Learn how to tag posts effectively.

One thought on “Blogger Recognition Award

  1. Hi, Catherine.
    First of all, I love the name of your blog– Found in the Truth.

    This award is an unexpected surprise! Thanks so much for this honor. I’m already thinking about ways to respond to your instructions about the award. Your own advice to bloggers is great. The item about letting friends know when I’ve posted something is tough and a great challenge for me. I’d also love to hear more about tagging posts effectively.

    So now I’m going to check out some of the other bloggers you nominated! Thanks again for this wonderful surprise.
