Awards&Inspiration

This will be the last blog award I follow up on… Sorry… I am not blogging for awards, I blog for my readers, and although awards generates lots of traffic to my blog, what’s the point if they are not the ones interested in what I write?

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Thanks, wwfd301!!

I have received another blog award!!!  Thanks, to the Nlistblog for picking me as one of 5 recipients!

I agree with everyone who thinks that these blog awards are a bit like chain letters and when I get one, it is bitter-sweet.  I LOVE that someone loves me enough to send me an award.

I follow the new twisted rule from wwfd301, they are like this:

In order to accept you must:

2. Name 5 of your most fabulous moments (either in real life or in the blogosphere).

  1. When my kids were born…
  2. When I cycled  Col du Tourmalet
  3. When I met/married my lovely husband
  4. Whenever I see my best friend
  5. When I moved out of the city

3. Name 5 things you love.

  1. Sunshine
  2. My husband and my family
  3. Traveling Europe
  4. Writing
  5. Taking pictures!

4. Name 5 things you hate.

  1. Hate
  2. Agressiveness
  3. Moskito bites
  4. Snow and below zero temperature.
  5. Gardening

5. Pass the ribbon on to 5 bloggers and leave a comment notifying them of their win.

Beautiful blogger

I received this award/nomination via the generous act of  Thomas at http://onlyhereonlynow.com/.  Thank you, I love your comments!

I love the idea of this award.  It makes its way through the blogging world in a lovely and serendipitous dance.  You receive it and then pass it on to seven others and so on.  It’s a chain letter of praise and respect generated by writers for writers.

The guidelines for accepting this award are:

1. Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post.
2.  Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
3. Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know.

I nominate the following seven wondrous blogs.

1. http://timzauto.wordpress.com

2. http://cathrinemclaren.com/

3. http://bodhisattvaintraining.wordpress.com/

4. http://ahappieremily.wordpress.com/
