Blogging has many rewards. I am meeting new friends – that’s YOU – through your comments and many of your own blogs, and I am getting a chance to write, which is the reason I began to blog in the first place.
I resisted blogging for a long time – mostly because I believed I didn’t have time for it. Well, as it turns out, we make time for that which we love. The trick, of course, is to continue to do the other necessary things as well as the blogging.
Which means I better hush up and go do the dishes.
But quickly, let me tell you about two nice blogging honors I have received in the past few weeks. First, Betsy over at Bits and Breadcrumbs. She has recipes, a sense of humor, and lovely photographs of her food! Plus, I love her blog’s name. Thank you so much, Betsy, and thank you for being patient with my response! (By the way, my son would have been “Betsy” had he been a girl…but we’re pretty thankful that he was himself instead!)
Betsy was kind enough to award two honors at once: The Kreativ Blogger Award and the Sunshine Award, which was also awarded to me by Renee at CravesAdventure . Renee is an encourager. And an adventurer. She is a positive force of nature! I appreciate her outlook as well as her photographs of places she’s been and things she’s done. More than just a travel blog, hers is a happiness blog.
Thank you both so very much for these kind awards! I appreciate the mention on your blog and I am very glad to be a part of the blogosphere with you!
I guess there are some rules when receiving these awards. I have to answer a few questions and I have to nominate a few bloggers!
Favorite color: Bright red
Favorite number: 3
Favorite animal: Koala – though I’ve never seen one in person! Or maybe a Manatee – but that’s sounds politically correct, and I’m nothing if not rebellious against political correctness…
Favorite non-alcoholic drink: coffee
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook, although Twitter is beginning to look more professionally important.
My passion: writing (surprise, surprise!)
Getting gifts or receiving them: I love both!
Favorite pattern: Tartan – preferably Fraser!
Favorite day of the week: Sunday
Favorite flower: Daisy
Now for the nominees!!!
Storytelling Nomad – Katy is on the same road to becoming a writer that I am on and she often posts things that I can very much relate to. She is Australian and I must say that I just wish I could hear all of my Australian and New Zealand blogger friends actually speaking because, of course, being American I love a good Australian accent! But that aside, hers is a blog I definitely appreciate.
Whatimeant2say – If you need a laugh, this is the place to go for one. This blogger – let’s call her Mrs. Cap’n Firepants (not to be old fashioned, but to use the name she uses for her husband) – writes daily about her omnivorous bulldog and anything else that comes to mind…all of which she makes humorous. Who knew that even driving one’s daughter to school could be a source of hilarity? I so want to come up with pseudonyms for my family, but I can’t possibly do as well as she has.
You’re a Writer! Valerie has a very helpful blog for those on the writing trail. She posts practical advice, giving good examples of whatever she’s discussing – grammar, resources, writing style, etc. She brings a lot of experience to her blog and I am certain that many people could benefit from her useful information.
