The blogging community is full of wonderful, creative, and supportive people. Ever since I started my blog back in 2011, I didn’t know what to expect. I made the brave decision to put myself out there. The rest, as the saying goes, is history. I have continually come to this corner of the Internet time and again, and I still wouldn’t trade it for anything else in the world. Being a blogger and a part of the community has been a constant source of joy and inspiration. When one of my fellow bloggers decided to recognize/nominate me for a blog award, I’m always surprised and deeply grateful for the consideration. The Sunshine Blogger Award is the most recent honor I have received.
One of the most rewarding things about blogging is its community. The simple act of reading, commenting, and following other bloggers, whose interests are similar to your own, leads you to life long friends and supporters you never would have connected with otherwise. And what’s especially great about the WordPress community is the overwhelming warmth and kindness that unfailingly greets you every time you come online, which can sometimes inspire your fellow peers to nominate you for a blogging award.
There seems to be a blogger award season going around lately. Whenever I scroll through my reader feed on WordPress, there’s usually one or two bloggers I follow who have gotten nominated for a blog award. The lovely honor has now been bestowed upon me with the Sunshine Blogger Award!
