Starting Life Bellissima — Living Life Beautifully:

I have always enjoyed writing, and starting a blog became a way for me to share what is near and dear to me — family, faith, organic living/eating. In essence, it is my joy and desire to share with you God’s many blessings! I started my blog nearly a year ago, and I never dreamed what a huge blessing it would be to me! I have met so many wonderful people and many have become very dear friends from all around the world!

A little advice for new bloggers:

If I could give one piece of advice to new bloggers, it would be to write from your heart. Write about what is near and dear to you, and enjoy the creative process!

My nominees:

First of all, I appreciate all of you! It’s very hard to narrow this down to only a handful of bloggers, and I sincerely hope to highlight many more in the future!
