Today is December 21, 2017  and it’s also the start of Winter Solstice. For those of us who absolutely hate Winter well it’s here to stay for a few months so to be a little blunt, deal with it. Remember, even though today is the shortest day of the year the days get longer after today. So in reality, it’s not all bad.

We hear so much about the Winter solstice usually a day or two before it happens. But do we really understand how the Winter Solstice works. I researched this and found some explanation. I thought I’d show you what I found.

This is incredible information in my opinion. I hope you learn something from it and guess what? Those of you who have children and grandchildren you can can teach them something about the Winter Solstice and that’s something you can be proud of and happy that your child or grandchild is learning.

blogger-recognition-award-badge

I read this great post called Amagreen And Awards on samanthamurdochblog .

I would like to thank samanthamurdochblog for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award and The Black Cat Blue Sea Award. Because this is a combination post, I’ll be talking about both awards in this post.

For the Blogger Recognition Award you have to tell the story of how your blog began I did that here . As a post-script to my story, I decided to take a 14 day course in the fundamentals of blogging to help me.

Also,  as part of the Blogger Recognition Award you have to give  2 pieces of advice.

  1. Don’t do what I did and that’s take a blogging course after you start blogging. If you really want to start blogging, Take blogging courses FIRST.
  2. Comment, Like other blogger’s posts and they will return the favor most of the time. Followers will come eventually. Be Nice.
  3. I have been blessed with a blogger asking me to do a guest post. This could happen to you too.
