When someone sends an expression of true love my way, it always catches me off guard. I simply refuse to take something like that for granted. No matter how big or small the expression is, it always hits me right in the heart. Today, one of my good blogging friends made such a sincere gesture and it pretty much got me overwhelmed. She is one of the most genuine and loving people I ever met. I know she struggling through life herself, but somehow always finds time to send love to her friends. Now I guess you are all curious to find out what it is she did for me? Well, just read the rest of this blog and find out.
My dear friend Thypolar awarded me with the Liebster Blogger Award. And I want to thank her for doing is. Especially since she had such kind words for me in store. I love you Thy! In order to really receive this blog, I have to apply to five rules. Well, why not? It would be kind a rude to reject this present by not giving it my best shot right? So here we go!
Rule 1: Thank the fellow blogger who nominated you.
Dear Thy, I would like to thank you for nominating me for this award. It honestly means a lot to me you selected me to show this much love, especially since you words were so kind. It means more to me than words can describe. Thank you girl!
Rule 2: List five blogs that has affected your writing in a positive manner, by virtue of comments, posts, inspirations etc.
ToraJD.com: The first blogger I like to list for this precious award is Tora. This Swedish blogging friend really inspires me with her beautiful photography and inspirational blogs. Honestly, when I turn out of ideas to write, her blog is one I can easily turn to and find inspiration. Apart from that, she is a good writer. All her blogs are brief, simple, but still every beautiful. She sticks to the essence of what she want to say. That is something I love as well. At last, but certainly not at least, she is such a genuine girl. Always happy with every kind comment she gets. Never lose that spirit!
Indulge – Travel, Adventure, & New Experiences: This woman has seen it all. Honestly, she has been in places I can only dream of getting some day. She did things I am simply to chicken to ever do. She and her husband took a leap of faith, changed their lives and turned out be as happy as they could ever be. That alone is an inspiration. The best part? She tells her stories beautifully, they suck me in and wont spit me out until I finished the last sentence. Oh man, I only wish I could write this way about the few travels I made. If you are looking for inspiration or just a good place for the summer holiday, check her blog out!
AISJournal.com:A blog I only discovered recently, but he is already one of the most inspiring bloggers I met. He is opinionated, knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to share this with us all. He started blogging to improve his English, but grew brilliantly and turned it into something much more personal. A place to share his view, opinions and thoughts. His blogging did help him improve his English, but most of all turned out to be a passion. Leading him to have a self-hosted blog called Express Bloggers. Another place worth visiting.
Perfectly Prompted!: A blog that always helped me get past my writing blocks. The writing prompts posted on this blog were enough to get my creative juices flowing. Writing is harder as it often seems, so having a place to turn to when you run out of ideas is just great. Apart from that, the tips, tricks and help the blog offered was great. It really contributed to my improved writing over the past eighteen months. For that I am thankful. You should all go see this blog if you find a little time. Also, show some love to that very same blog. If anyone deserves it, it’s ChaseK8.
Hacking Vegas: The last blogger I like to show some love is the hubby of my friend Thypolar. This blogger always seems to get himself in the craziest situations, which is great. It’s the stories he shares that turn a smile on my face and even inspire me to write stories. Not that I published any of those, but still. The inspiration remains anyway. Apart from that, his comments at Thypolar’s blog are often brilliant and the men makes a perfect laughing stock. Need I say more?
Rule 3: Leave comments on those blogs letting them know of the nominations.
Rule 5: Bask in the love of fellow bloggers and spread joy and inculcate good karma.
Karma is a bitch, so I’d rather just say I love all of you blogging friends. More than I could possible express via a blog. All your writing made me smile, feel happy and inspired me. Don’t ever stop writing, because I wouldn’t know what to if it wasn’t for all you. You all made this whole blogging experience even more wonderful as it is.
So, that was kind a like my winners speech. Now all do me a solid favor and go send some love to my five nominated blogging friends!
