Liebster Award 2017, My First Nomination

Oh boy! Oh boy! I got my first nomination award for www.iamemgee.com blog! Having this Liebster Award 2017 nomination for the first time is overwhelming! 🙂 Thanks to Lucy Frank of www.atravellersfootsteps.com for making this possible. Do check her site for adventures and destination guides, really is helpful for us travelers.

To be honest, I almost gave up blogging. I got occupied with work and most of the time I got problems with travel budget! Anyhow, I still want to continue after realizing that I love traveling and blogging. To cut the story short, I overhauled my site and proceed with what I love. This nomination will be a huge part of realizing this passion. Again, thank you Lucy! 🙂

My favorite Blogger

The blogging industry is very competent, selecting my favorite blogger somewhat is difficult. I haven't seen and read most of the bloggers websites but I certainly have few that I have been following.

Lately, I have been a fan of Coleen from www.cololoz.com. She has this young and carefree spirit for travel and blogging. Most of her travels are budget friendly and her writing skills are amazing. Her site photo's are stunning too! I someday look myself to be like her. Wishing only that I have started earlier.

Discovering other bloggers takes sometime, maybe next month or the other month, I will have a different favorite blogger. But as of now she's on the top of my list.
