Even though I have been blogging a few months now, I still can’t get over that initial shock that people (not family) are reading my blog. The fact that people have liked my blog enough to leave comments, engage me in conversations, and nominate my blog for awards is nothing short of rewarding.
So I would like to take a moment with this post and share the love with my fellow bloggers. There are so many awesome blogs I follow I wish I could put them all here but I have had to limit myself. If you are wondering why I am doing one large post with several awards, that is easy. I am a procrastinator who is also A) insecure (do they really mean me?) and B) an introvert (they want to know what?) — don’t I sound like the life of the party?
Anyway, without further delay (drum roll please) here are the blog award nominations:
Very Inspiring Blogger Award
