When I first started this blogging thing my husband told me, “Don’t get hooked into doing those awards. They’re just a version of chain letters.”
I guess he’s probably right, but I would have missed out on finding so many new people! The blogging world is crazy full of awesome people and I enjoy stumbling upon either Readers, like you, or new Blogs to follow.
Now I know I don’t do all of the “requirements,” but these are still fun to pass on and an easy way to tell other bloggers that they are appreciated. So I thank all of you who have passed on any awards to me. They do not go unnoticed, even if it takes me a while to pass them on at times.
I wasn’t too sure about this first award when I got it. I was nominated for the Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandment Award by ForHisGloryandPraise. I wasn’t sure how to react, but I found some information about it over at Home To Go 232. I’ll copy what she says about this award: The “Mrs. Sparkly’s Ten Commandments Award” has to do with a woman of the same name, known for being very elegant and having high expectations, and who is committed to maintaining integrity, good manners and behavior, as well as a rich sense of humor.
I’m sure any woman would love to have that description stated about herself. I’ve only had one other person in my life describe me as “elegant,” so I will take this award and run before anyone finds out the truth!
The second award is the One Lovely Blog Award given to me by Michelle at ForGodITestify. The rules for this award are that you must answer the following questions, nominate some blogs that you think deserve the award, and contact the writers of those blogs. So here are the questions…
1. Describe yourself in seven words… fiercely loyal, family focused, attempting Christlike behavior
2. What keeps you up at night? two kids
3. Whom do you aspire to be like? Jesus
5. What scares you? heights
6. What are the best and worst things about blogging? Best: meeting all kinds of different people with different passions Worst: it takes up a lot of time
7. What was the last website you looked at? http://www.clemson.edu/public/regulatory/ag_svc_lab/soil_testing/collecting_samples.html
8. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? to be less judgmental
