Not to brag… ok, who am I kidding, this is totally bragging… but I have been awarded FOUR different blogging awards. However, due to circumstances beyond my control… like illnesses, vacations, and – let’s just face it – my own laziness, I have taken a long time to formally recognize most of these. But make no mistake, it is not because I am not thrilled to have gotten them. I am honored to have received all of them, not just because it is amazing to me that anyone reads my simple little no-frills blog (although I am working on some frills for you all…more on that to come) but because the nominations came from bloggers who I truly respect.
Awards aside, it is always wonderful to hear from friends, strangers, followers and even some unexpected people how much you enjoy my blog or how a certain post really resonated with you. I truly relish all of the comments, likes, shares, retweets, and the recounting of your own personal stories and experiences. At the end of the day, that’s what writing this blog is all about for me: the connections and the community. Parenting can be an isolating experience sometimes, and this blog is my way of reaching out to all of you – to let you know that you are not alone and to remind myself that I am not alone either.
So keep it coming! If you like or dislike, agree or disagree with something I am writing about, then please tell me. If you know someone who you think might appreciate this blog, then please share it with them. If I write something that particularly speaks to you, please share it with your own audience.
In the spirit of this amazing blogging community and also partially due to my aforementioned laziness, I have decided to formally recognize the blogging awards I have received by creating an Award of my own. I am not sure if this is allowed, but this is my blog, hence my world and I make the rules… so by the power vested in me, I now pronounce the importance of a very important award, for better or for worse, and uh for.. ever. I now present:
The Saggy Award for General Awesomeness!
The Saggy Award for General Awesomeness would like to recognize the General Awesomeness of the following blogs:
Mommy On The Go In Holy Toledo Thank you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award
Up With The Chickens Thank you for the Kreative Blogger Award!
Unfinishedbizness Thank you for the Sunshine Blogger Award!
Structure In An Unstructured Life Thank you for the Reader Appreciation Award!
Totally check out their Generally Awesome Blogs. Totally.
These blogs are also Generally Awesome in totally different ways:
The rules for this award are simple.
1) Accept the fact that you are pretty much the bee’s knees aka Totally Fucking Awesome.
2) Celebrate your Awesomeness in any manner you deem fit (I personally recommend a bottle of Cabernet and a tub of vanilla frosting but to each her own)
3) If you are so inclined, share this General Awesomeness with your readers and inform them of some other blogs you that find Awesome. That’s it.
Congrats to all the Awesome people and thank you everyone for reading.
