The WordPress Family Award

I have been nominated for an award today!  I was so excited to see my blog listed on Artistic Christian’s  nomination list.   I have enjoyed reading his blog posts and was actually surprised to see that he had just started his blog last January.   To me, his blog has been very encouraging and enjoyable to read.  He has a real talent for writing engaging stories and encouraging words!  Thank you so much John Mark Miller for your nomination!

I started my blog in November or 2013 at the encouragement of a friend.  I had thought about doing more writing but a blog was a bit intimidating.  It was one thing to write quietly, or occasionally on facebook.  Quite another to start something so public!  I have enjoyed the process and am encouraged to see that a few others are reading and enjoying my blog as well.  I don’t have many followers but that is ok with me!  The ones I do have, have been incredibly encouraging and I appreciate every one of them!

Thanks also to my actual family members and friends,  who have been reading my blogs.  I appreciate your support and encouragement!

Now on to the award:


Here is the description of the award from the creator of the award, Shaun:

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the ‘Word Press Family.’ I start this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents ‘Family’ we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honor to start this award.”

Here are the Rules for the award:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
    2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
    3. Nominate 10-15 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience.
    4. Let your 10 family members know you have awarded them.
    5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people that have taken you as a friend, and spread the love.

Now for the hardest part:  NOMINATING BLOGS!!

Here are the 10-15 blogs from those who have liked and followed my blog, have left thoughtful comments and took the time to support me.  I appreciate each and every one and thank them for their encouragement!!

  1. I’m so glad you accepted this award – it is definitely well deserved! I really appreciate the shout out, and have enjoyed keeping up with your blog.

    As far as followers go, I didn’t have many either until I did the “A to Z Challenge,” which takes place in April, and “Blogging University 101,” which I think starts in January. These challenges are designed to introduce lots of new people to your blog, and both of these really gave my blog a kick start.

    I hope you have a wonderful 2015!
