I have found in the time I have been blogging that the community that exists is special in so many areas. It’s informative, fun, passionate, BUT the most important quality I have found in it is that is is supportive.
At times I have been asked:
- Isn’t it time consuming ?
- How can you ever know these people ?
- Aren’t you afraid you’ll meet a lot of kooks ?
And too many other questions to name. Non bloggers don’t get it. That’s okay. Because I do !! Many of you do too. In the last few months I have been shown so much support when I needed it. Some of that support has come about through your comments, or through your wonderfully insightful posts…and some from blogging awards. I think they are wonderful things. Admittedly I don’t follow the rules…being a PIRATE and all. But the feeling I get when someone takes the time to nominate my little blog is immense.
So while I may take time to answer some of them…please never feel that you don’t make my heart swell when you hand them out to me. The feeling I get is something like this…
So though long overdue…I should like to acknowledge the following awards you have given me, and I should like to thank the bloggers who thought of me.
Please click on each award to be taken to the page of the wonderful blogger who took the time to acknowledge “Chronicles”
For this award I will fulfill this condition. Finish this sentence. A GREAT reader is…who loves the words enough to get lost in them.
I was asked to join the Ligo Circle of Appreciation. What a great honour.
From another terrific blogger came these three awards…
And last but certainly not least is the ‘Blog of the Year 2012′. Four bloggers have nominated Chronicles for this. WOW is all I can say. Thank you so much:
So what is a girl to say to all that ?? Thank you hardly seems adequate…but I do thank all these wonderful bloggers for these awards.
Now there are just so many wonderful blogs out there. I don’t pass awards on. Not usually. But just this once I want to list some of the blogs that I feel deserve not one, but ALL these awards.
It is up to you what you do with one or all of them. Thank you all for being part of my world. It is a better place because you are there with me in whatever way you choose to. For all of you I am extremely grateful.
For more you can always check out the awards page.
Totally unrelated post here. Check out Michael Andrew’s blog. He is running a photography competition and has put up the final nominees for the SPORTS PHOTOGRAPHY CATEGORY – OMG is all I can say…just amazing. I wish I could take images like these. All you photographers will love this – just love it.
