So…sitting here with my coffee, I turn on my laptop and take a look at what’s new on site. What I didn’t expect to see is another nomination for The Blogger Recognition Award.
Thank you very, very much Cosmic Explorer for this honor. 🙂 Check out her site. It is not only beautiful to look at, but her current Gratitude Journal is wonderful to follow!
I have only been at this since April, so I don’t know if I can do 15 other bloggers at this point (I am WAY behind in checking out everyone’s sites), so I have instead done 5. Trust me, there are A LOT more out there deserving the nomination……
Now on to the fun part….
Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
– Write a post to show your award
– Attach the award to the post
– Give a brief story of how your blog started
– Give a piece of advice or two to new bloggers
– Select 5 other blogs you want to give the award to
If you saw my first Recognition post, I started to blog as something to do CASUALLY (ha ha ha).
Since then, I have quit my office job, returned to school part time (online, so no travelling), and have been writing even more. Just to put THAT little tidbit in perspective, this was a decision made between me and my husband, so that I can return to a job that I LOVED (working in a library…I know…shocking huh?) but left because I couldn’t get full-time work without going back to school. At the time, that wasn’t the best option for my family.
Fast forward a few years, and realizing that I cannot do the “desk job” thing (love interacting with people too much. Some of my coworkers weren’t exactly shocked by my decision), I am at home and in the process of fulling immersing myself in the literary world. It is an industry that (in time) will pay me more than where I was AND I will be surrounded by books and book lovers on a daily basis.
I am as happy as my cats on catnip (no seriously, you should see them…total junkies man). 🙂
Before I gave a few pieces of advice, but this time, I am only just giving one…one of the ones that I gave before…
Nothing is every accomplished by sitting around wondering “What If?”
As I mentioned before, there are some awesome bloggers out there, and in time I WILL KNOW THEM ALL!…but until then, here are my nominations for this award….
