The Very Inspiring Blogger Award - And the Nominees Are . . .

This year is the first school year that I have not been involved in full-time teaching (for a long time). One of my goals has been to be more regular with blog posts on my blogs. I love sharing life events - the good, the bad, and the ugly, or at least the funny - with readers and fellow writers and bloggers. I also like to point readers towards great books. At this time, my book blog is focusing on great picture books to which I add KID KANDY - an activity that goes along with each book.

I am honored that Sally Cronin has nominated me for this Very Inspiring Blog Award. Thank you so much, Sally! This is a totally new experience for me, one that I will treasure.

I met Sally in Blog Land. Our friendship began when I read a request she put out about guest posting healthy recipes on her blog. I had just created a very yummy mostly healthy dish and was quite happy to share it with her. She made my first guest blogger adventure virtually (pun intended) painless. I have quite enjoyed getting to know Sally through our conversations and posts about all sorts of things. She really does a great job of reaching out to people from all walks of life.

Now for the three things that have inspired me recently – tough as there are so many of you…..

1. I love to read a wide variety of blogs. I usually subscribe to them so they come into my email inbox. I love checking out what is going on. Sometimes it's like Christmas. I receive the gift of inspiration or encouragement.

2. I follow blogs to learn something or gain information or keep abreast of a subject. I appreciate so much the writers that challenge me to continue on the writing, teaching, or life in general path that I am on.

3. I laugh, gasp, cry, and talk to the blog writers as if they are right here at my computer. Can you hear me? I am responding, though I might not always jot down a comment. Thank you for enriching my life!
