The Awesomeness of Blogging…

February 13, 2012

I started blogging last year as a means to let my voice be heard…mission accomplished.  And after six months, I’ve been very fortunate to receive inspiration, encouragement, and recognition from friends and my fellow bloggers. 

And along the way, I have been nominated for some awards.  Now that we’re well past the holiday season and my head is beginning to stop spinning, I have a lot of catching up to do and some Thank You messages to pass along. 

Every single one of these nominations are greatly appreciated.  Every single one of these nominators are a joy to read…I hope you will take time to stop and visit all of them.

My first Thank You goes to Prairie Wisdom for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award.    I have been awarded with this before and am again honored that Prairie Wisdom feels I am worthy of it. 

My second Thank You goes, again, to Prairie Wisdom and also to Annie at Year Stricken for nominating me for the 7 x 7 Award.    Annie is a must-read…she has the most off-the-wall sense of humor, will keep you in stitches and has some very thought-provoking posts .

My third Thank You goes to Elyse at fiftyfourandahalf for awarding me the Candle Lighter Award.    As I mention on my Blogs I Follow page, Elyse will keep you laughing with her knack for telling it like it is.

And, taa-daa, I have received the ABC (Awesome Blog Content) Award  from Elyse at fiftyfourandahalf and Meg Travels.  Thanks to both of you for the nomination. 

Now I have to admit that these all came at the same time, in the middle of the hectic holiday season, and at a time when my life has taken a wonderful turn.  My brain is in total over-load, and I’ve lost track of what I’m supposed to do.  I may have lost track of all I need to thank.  If so, please let me know…I would not wish  to slight  anybody. 

So…tell something about myself?  Pass them along?  I can’t remember.  My apologies for not following all the rules.  I’m just going to wing it from here and invent my own rules or ignore them all together, okay?

Hmmmm, tell something about myself?  What could I possibly tell you?  Only that I am at a point in my life where I am very, very happy…that’s all I can say! 

Thanks again to each and everyone who nominated me.  And to my readers, please check out the “Blogs I Follow” page…these are an awesome group of writers and artists.

    Congratulations. It’s so odd to me that Year-struck’s name is Annie. Odd to read the thoughts and feelings of people everyday and not know their names. Part of blogging awesomeness!

    Congratulations on them all, and I can certainly understand why you are making your own rules!
