I received my first award today and I feel honored. (Can I put this on my resume? – lol) Because it is my first award, I’m not sure what to write. I’ve been blogging for three months and prior to that had not done any writing for many years – not counting historical research papers for college.
Smilngbug http://smilingbug.wordpress.com/ nominated me for the WordPress Family Award. Please visit her blog here: http://smilingbug.wordpress.com/2013/08/06/a-wordpress-family-thank-you/
Thank you, Smilingbug for nominating me for this award.
As a condition for accepting the nomination, I am presenting 15 awards to deserving bloggers.
This part is difficult. I follow many more than 15 bloggers and I add new blogs to my reader every day who also deserve the award. I am posting 15 blogs that I read regularly but want the rest of you to know that I enjoy your blogs as well. Some of the blogs make me laugh or smile, some make me cry and some of them make me think about things. None of the blogs are alike in theme in any way. I hope you will visit each of these blogs.

The conditions for accepting the nomination for the WordPress award are as follows:
Display the Award Certificate on your blog.
Announce your win with a post. Make sure you post a link back to me as a ‘thank you’ for the nomination.
Present 15 awards to 15 deserving bloggers.
Leave them a comment to let them know after you have linked them to a post.
Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
I wanted to include The Rider http://vosperdruiter.wordpress.com/ in the list of 15 bloggers but I see that he has (and prefers) an “awards free blog.”
Seven interesting (or weird) things about myself:
I have a collection of thousands of antique and contemporary family photos. I am the go-to person for old family photos and incriminating photos.
The subject matter in my blog is usually serious, but I enjoy humor.
I love brussel sprouts. Sometimes I get a craving for brussel sprouts. This is not normal.
I read books. I don’t own a Kindle.
I am emotional but don’t really show it.
I enjoy doing yard work – mowing, weed trimming, gardening and am proficient with a few power tools.
I have a high pain tolerance. When I volunteered at the animal shelter, I was called when it was time to give animal meds, clip claws or catch and handle feral cats.
Thank you Smilingbug for nominating me for the WordPress Family Award. I feel like part of the family now.
