Blog Awards Extravaganza!

“…winning awards is cool. Aside from the warm fuzzy, it creates publicity, and that helps spread the word…” ― Patrick Rothfuss



Hello and welcome


my blog awards extravaganza!



When I first created my WordPress blog…

I wasn’t sure about what I was doing. That is the how and why of my doing on a regular basis. I never really know why I’m doing what I do… I’ve learned over the years to just keep going and doing.

I like to question myself, but sometimes it is necessary to question the questioning itself. As in – Question everything… including the wisdom of questioning everything.

Sometimes, it is better not to question… But when are those sometimes…?

When I first created my WordPress blog, out of the blue I received a blog award nomination which inspired me to keep blogging… not that I had any intention of not keeping blogging at that time, but…

It is always a ‘warm fuzzy’ to receive encouragement and support, and a blog award nomination is a great way to encourage and support.

It is also a great way to publicise your blog and the blogs of others, to connect with the blogging community and give those who don’t have blogs but who enjoy your blog a way to discover other blogs. The blogosphere is very crowded with many wonderful beings and their blogging voices. It is a cornucopia of plenty… plenty can be overwhelming and wonderful at the same time. A signpost, a footpath is helpful, although it can also lead one astray (just thinking about all the times I’ve followed signs, especially ‘public footpath’ ones, and gotten hopelessly lost… then found something new).


I am not very good… obedient… when it comes to rules, so I’m not following the beat of the blog awards rules drum, I am listening to the beat of my own drum… which often gets me into trouble… with others… with myself… making things more difficult, more complicated, than they need to be… I happen… to myself… and sometimes to others.


Without further ado… taking inspiration from  –  deepsouldiver  – I’m going to bundle some award nominations which I have received and haven’t yet passed on… and pass them all on.


No rules apply… unless you want them to. For the rules related to the various awards, please see the noms I received below and click on the links.

Yes, there are blogs which I follow and enjoy which I have left out… not deliberately. This sort of situation puts my scatterbrain to the test… it doesn’t like tests or rules, etc.

So if you’re one of those whom I did not include and it bothers you… carpe the blog award!

This is not Freshly Pressed, there’s no mystery to it, it’s not in someone else’s hands… it’s in your hands, go for it and grab it!


ps. I’m not notifying anyone… because…
