The Blogger Recognition Award


Hey! We’re back with another award, and this time, it’s a new one- the Blogger Recognition Award. Thank you so much, Ariana (my blogging best friend), for nominating me. Guys, if you haven’t already, make sure to check out her blog here, with the original nomination here.

Alrighty, that’s done. Now, here are the rules, per usual.

  • Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 5-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.

The Creation of Africa Boy

I first started blogging on my dad’s old blog. He had this section on it called the McFarland Kids Creative Place, and on that, I could blog. My first ever post (published November 4th, 2015. You can find it here), was a poem I had written about snow. Eventually, I grew to dislike blogging on a website that was not my own, so I used my email and created my own blog, found here. The Elisha McFarland blog still exists, and I update it regularly. After a year of blogging on that website, I was told by a friend that the Blogspot websites aren’t nearly as cool (or accessible) as the WordPress website. Thus was born Africa Boy.


Now, here are my two pieces of advice. 1: Blog consistently (sorry, Ariana, but I copied you). 2: Don’t be afraid to market; in other words, don’t be scared of telling people about your blog.


Alright, let’s do this. I nominate…







All right, that’s done. Thank you, everybody, for reading, and thank’s again to Ariana for the nomination. Peace out!
