blogger-recognition-award-badge

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….

THE RULES

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…

TAKE RISKS  

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….

    I don’t know what to say, but I’ll express myself through these emoticons:

    (((o(*゚∀゚*)o)))♪o((〃∇〃o))((o〃∇〃))o♪♪o(゚∀゚o)(o゚∀゚)o♪

    Thank you very much~ I never expected this! I thought I had to write a million blogs to get a nomination. It perked me up more than coffee could ever do.

  2. Wow, thanks for the nomination!

    I do have to ask… I was lucky to notice when I read your post that you’d nominated me. Is there a way to get WordPress to tell me when somebody links to my blog like you have? (Still a novice…)

    I’d best get my post up!
