You Like Me…You Really Like Me!

I’ve been nominated for the Illuminating Blogger Award by soulmetry and, my friends, I am floored.  Thank you, thank you, I am so very honored.

I have written lots of things, but I’m still feeling like the virtual new kid on the blogging block.  Honestly, when I started this journey, I expected to be one of those people with a couple followers who are really just friends and family who feel obligated to read it, in case there’s a quiz later.  (Yes, there might be a quiz.  Be prepared.)  I am constantly and incredibly gratified to find that I have such gracious, witty and faithful readers who are walking my path with me.  When I started, I had no idea how important this piece of me would become.  It may seem like a silly little funny blog, but it’s teaching me new things about communication and sharing bits of myself.  I can honestly say that I’ve gained far more from the process than I ever imagined, and to find that I’m also making connections with other people, well, it’s huge. (HUGE!) 

So, thank you, thank you, soulmetry, for the recognition.  It mean so very much.

My nominations for the Illuminating Blogger Award constantly entertain me,  make me think of things in a new way and most often make me nod vigorously, saying, “YES!”

      And wouldn’t you just know it, I had a typo in your blog name. All fixed now. I shouldn’t be allowed to type when I am overtired. 🙂

    Hey, thanks for the nomination! It’s great to find out that I’ve made someone think of something in a new way, or at least give them a laugh!

    Thanks so much for mentioning me in your list! I’m just like you, I really did start my blog writing to all my friends and family … and then it just grew into well … whatever it is in now. I’ve been lurking around your site for awhile and when you commented last week, it reminded me to just hit the freaking follow button so I can see when your new posts come up. Thanks again 🙂

      Thanks for hitting that button! I really had no idea what I was starting, not only in my own development, but becoming a part of the blogging community. It’s been pretty awesome finding such awesome blogs. Happy to give you a well-deserved shout-out!
