I'm relatively new to blogging so I don't even know enough to expect awards. I certainly didn't anticipate getting one less than a month into my personal challenge. I'm surprised and touched that Stephanie of Wild Crickets felt such a connection to my blog that she thought to award me a Stylish Blogger Award.
Wow. I did a little happy dance. As a primarily "for fun" and for information blogger, I wonder what people get out of reading my blog (and sometimes IF they're reading my blog).
This week has been one full of recognition for me. I've had six fellow bloggers recognize my blog or feature a recipe since Monday. It's so amazing, I was a bit overwhelmed by the sudden attention. And, I now have nearly 100 GFC followers as well. So, thank you Stephanie and thank you to those who featured my blog and recipes. Your attention and appreciation of my work is truly appreciated.
The rules of the award are as follows:
- Share 7 things about yourself
- Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
- Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award
Miz Helen's Country Cottage—So awesome. She cooks meat, but I love it. I've converted quite a few of Miz Helen's yummy country cottage creations.
Kelly the Kitchen Kop—She probably is big time, but I've not seen her around the blogosphere as much as the others above. As you can see from the post I linked you to, we often disagree, but I think we're both OK with that. I love her take on things and she's really inspired me to use more whole foods. That's something I've been struggling with in the mixed-eater family here. But, it's a work in progress. Full disclosure: While this is not an affiliate link, I'm a member of Kelly's affiliate group, but I really do love her blog or I wouldn't have joined.
