Awards and More Awards! …Really!?!

One thing I’ve learned since I started blogging is that bloggers can nominate their peers for various awards! How great is that?

It’s pleasing and humbling to know that people enjoy what I write.

Knowthesphere, atranquilplace and Francine in Retirement nominated me for these awards:

The Very Inspiring Blogger …Genuine Blogger…The Sunshine Award…

Kreativ Blogger…Versatile Blogger…


I admit they did this a number of weeks ago,,. life’s been hectic…but I didn’t want to wait any longer to say THANK-YOU!!!!

Please be sure to visit their wonderful blogs!  You’ll be glad you did!!!

Awards come with some basic rules that you list in your post when you accept the award:   

(1) thank the blogger who nominated you (2) include the links to their blogs, (3) include the award image in your post, (4) copy the award image to your site, (5) answer questions/give random facts about yourself (6) when nominating other bloggers include  the links to their sites, and (7) let those bloggers know they’ve  been nominated!

Since there are a number of awards to give out, I’ll be spreading this out into at least two posts…so stay tuned for more this week!

I’m so happy!



The Genuine Blogger Award doesn’t have specific requirements so every blogger I mention in today’s post is also nominated for for this award!

The awards state that I’m supposed to nominate  10 – 12 fabulous bloggers.

I’m going to bend the rules a bit by nominating just a few bloggers this time, then I’ll reserve the right to pass the awards along again! Hooray!

I’m nominating the following bloggers for the Sunshine award!

Today I’m nominating one blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award. You’ve got to check this site – no kidding!

seekrazScott Brill expresses that his blog Pieces of Me and Other Sundry Things is really about that.  It’s a great blog touching on a variety of topics. I started following recently and have not been disappointed.

Tomorrow…I’ll continue with the Kreativ Blogger and Very Inspiring Blogger awards!

Thanks again to:

Knowthesphere, atranquilplace and Francine in Retirement for the nominations!


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!

      Hi Gemma! No worries. I also took a number of weeks to respond, so I completely understand! It’s also the reason I decided to “bend” one of the rules! 🙂
