I've been bestowed with the Versatile Blogger Award by a couple of my blogging friends. Both Mrs. Mayham at Mothering Mayham and DysFUNctional Mom at Putting the Fun in Dysfunctional were kind enough to give me this award. Check out both of these blogs! They're great!
The rules are that you're supposed to share 7 things about yourself, then pass on the award to 15 worthy bloggers. I'm breaking with the rules. I recently shared 10 things about myself, so I'm not listing another 7! Also, I'm passing on this award to only 3 women. But these are 3 very special bloggers who are REALLY versatile! They are wonderful women who write amazing blogs! If you don't read their blogs already, you really need to!
First off, I'm passing this award on to Cheryl at Deckside Thoughts and Kim at The Courageous O'Connor's . Both of these women were kind enough to blog about me being a finalist in the "Parent and Child" magazine contest to encourage people to vote for me. They did this on their own initiative. I thought this was incredibly generous and if this doesn't show how versatile they are, I don't know what does!
I also want to bestow the Versatile award onto Jenny at Jenny Matlock. Her blogs always make me bust a gut! She's so funny! But she's also incredibly sweet and truly versatile. I messed up big time on her site by not participating in something I had kinda committed to. Did she get mad at me? No! She was incredibly generous in spirit and extremely understanding and kind. And for that I'm eternally grateful.
When I started blogging back in February, I didn't know much about blogging. I pictured myself sitting in my home, typing my deep thoughts and raking in decent money from ad sales. It seemed lucrative, but isolating. Actually, the opposite is true. Blogging is not at all lucrative--until you get a decent number of followers. But it's not isolating at all. There's a whole community of bloggers out there who support each other and cheer each other on. It's an amazing community, and I feel very honored to be a member of it!
Blogging has been a ton of fun, and it has forced me to be a bit introspective--something I find incredibly difficult to do!
Thanks for the support, ladies!
