Being a blogger is a weird and wonderful experience. It has highs and lows and a roller coaster track of a learning curve. Just when you think you know what you’re doing, you realise there is so much more to learn. It’s fun, it can also be scary, but it is always thrilling whether you’re screaming in fear or hooting with joy.
There are times when you’re caught up in the momentum of blogging, pouring energy into your blog, your passions fueling post after post.
There are also times when you crash into an invisible wall and wonder if you should just delete your blog or leave it in blog limbo land and walk away for a while… maybe to return, maybe not.
Whenever I hit that wall… the being who watches over bloggers seems to intervene by sneaking up on me and shouting ‘BOO!’ in my ear so loudly that my surprise knocks me right through the wall smashing it to pieces. Or something like that. It’s a fanciful way of saying that sometimes I need a zap of encouragement to keep going because my engine has stalled.
Bloggers need encouragement sometimes… sometimes all the time… and there are many ways for us to get it. From people letting us know they enjoy what we do, by hitting ‘Like’ on a post, by reblogging or sharing a post, by commenting, by Following, by giving a Blog Award Nomination.
So, I’ve created this page to collect the Blog Award Nominations which some lovely blogging souls have generously given to my blog. I’m adding links to their blogs, and to the post on their blog which contains my blog nomination as it also has links to all the other blogs which were given a nomination. I’m also adding links to my posts in which I passed on the Blog Award Nominations.
When you’re a blogger, you’re part of a community and that community is a very supportive and sharing one.
Thank you for your support and for sharing these Blog Award Nominations with me, it means a lot to me and you touched my heart deeply with your generous gesture.
The Very Inspiring Blogger Award… Part One – contains nomination rules and answers to questions.
The Very Inspiring Blogger Award… Part Two – contains my nominations.
The Shine On Award Nomination was given to me by What Better Reason – Just Because (blog no longer available)
An Epiphany – Part 3 – Shine On You Crazy Diamond – I received the nomination while I was caught up in a moment of introspective change of perspective and felt that it was connected so I made it part of that series of posts.
