Let it be known that 2013 has been a big year for blog awards on simpleek. There’s just so many amazing bloggers who are just too kind and really very talented. The always awesome and lovable Cary of Recollections of Play has awarded me with the WordPress Family Award.
When it comes to these pay it forward/recognition type of awards, there’s a few rules I need to follow:
1. Publish the award photo in a blog post.
2. Include a link to the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate 10 blogs you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
4. Tell your 10 family members about their award.
This award is different and it’s a really nice way of saying, “Hey, not only do I think you run an amazing blog, but you have come to be very important to me in the blogging community.” It’s a wonderful idea and it’ll be incredibly hard to pick ten out of the many blogs I follow. You all have made blogging and interacting with each and every one of you such an absolute joy every day. The way I’ll approach my nominations will be based on who has made my humble blog beginnings gradually become this communal and interactive experience.
1. Shojo Corner
6. Anime B&B
10. At the Buzzer
There are two blogs I’ve included on this list that I’m not quite sure are still active or if they’re on a really long hiatus. I wanted to include them in the mix because they have been one of my first few followers of simpleek, back when no one knew about my blog. I found other great blogs on WordPress by accident or it’s more like they found me in some cases.
I consider these ten I have selected to have had a huge impact on my WordPress experience and some are responsible for changing my view on blogging, which is much more than simply posting an article and hoping someone will find it and read it. It’s interactive and community building in so many ways if you’re open to it. Thank you again, Cary!
