2 awards for the price of 1 post. Call me lazy or call me efficient, just call me! Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.
Some months ago I placed moratorium of sorts in regard to the posting of awards I had been so thoughtfully nominated for. Since I don’t post regularly, the number of nominations I was receiving on a regular basis was getting a bit out of hand and I was spending what little time I devote to my blog posting on these awards. It just didn’t feel right to me after a while. I decided that I had to stop posting on awards and expressed to those bloggers who thereafter nominated me, my heartfelt thanks and appreciation but respectfully declined to post. I hope that this post will make up for some of those non-posts by me nominating those very deserving bloggers and others in this post. One caveat: I will be reinstating immediately upon publication of this post and until further notice, a moratorium on awards.
The best thing about blogger awards is the opportunity to highlight blogs and bloggers who I can live vicariously through. Each unique in their own personality, style and passion. I follow quite a large number of blogs and have a very diversified reading list which is just the way I like it. As mentioned above, I will reinstate the moratorium on future awards, however I am making a promise to myself and to my fellow bloggers to more frequently mention and link to my favorite blogs and bloggers in upcoming posts.
I’m also going to break some of “the rules” that apply to both of these awards and only display the award logo, thank and link to the blogger who nominated my blog and nominate some of my favorite blogs. I will, of course, post “the rules” for each award in their entirety so that those of you who never break the rules, can keep with tradition.
Geez, I must be reliving my teenage rebellion years!
Now let’s get to it.
1. WordPress Family Award
The first nomination comes from Fransi over at Three Hundred Sixty-Five. Thanks Fransi! I’ve been a fan of her blog since its inception. You really must check it out. Fransi has committed to post every day for one year. She is a wonderful writer and, obviously, very disciplined. Oh, if only that last attribute were contagious! I might read her daily posts in the morning with my coffee or, as so often happens, I’m doing catch up and reading maybe a week’s worth of her posts in one sitting. Either way I’m always entertained, informed and completely engrossed when reading her posts. Thanks again, Fransi, for nominating me for this award.
WordPress Family Award Rules:
- Display the award logo on your blog.
- Link back to the person who nominated you.
- Nominate 10 as few or as many bloggers you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience.
- Let your Family members know you have awarded them.
- That’s it. Just please pick those who have taken you as a friend, and then spread the love to more folks

2. A Great Moment in My Life Award
Thanks so much to ExperiencedTutors for this award. Please link over to ExperiencedTutors’ blog. ET is a private tutor, lecturer, and is currently in the process of writing a book but has yet to disclose the subject matter. ET has pointed out the following benefits of blogging in a recent post celebrating his first anniversary as a blogger: “Artistic creativity, reading wonderful writing and establishing virtual friendships around the world are but three of the positives.” I could not agree more. So why not take a trip across the pond and visit ExperiencedTutors!
A Great Moment in My Life Award Rules:
- Create an acceptance speech either by video or a written speech post
- Pass the award on to 15 other bloggers
(Apologies, ET, for not completing the award assignment as directed.) Is there a make-up quiz?

So there you have it. Thanks again to ExperiencedTutors and Three Hundred Sixty-Five both who have been such wonderful supporters and contributors to me and my blog.
