We get it.
We respect it.We understand the huge step it is to put yourself out there. The deep desire to communicate, to share our beliefs,our ups and downs and our creative ideas and creations. I know that we may not all share the same beliefs but one thing I thing I think we can agree on, is how wonderful it is to be appreciated.
Writing a blog is a lot of hard work. Finding the time can be a huge hurdle to jump.Most of us wear many hats throughout the day so being able to squeeze in some time to write something interesting, as well as visually appealing can be tough. Searching for ideas is a challenge I think we all struggle with,or maybe it's just me. But I have to say I try to look at my posts from a first time reader's point of view. I may not ever get close to what it takes to be a great blog,my grammer and spelling may be at a first grade level at best ,but I promise I will keep trying because I'm hooked!
I know that each time someone makes the decision to follow me and my blog,I am humbled. I appreciate that gesture so much that it makes me work that much harder.
So to receive an award from a fellow blogger really stops me in my tracks, and makes me collect my thoughts. It took me a year to make the decision to take the blog step, a step I am so glad I took! If you are a first time reader and are sitting on the fence of whether to start yours....my advice is......do it! But always be open, be respectful, but most of all, be true to who you are.
So I want to thank a very sweet blogger Stephanie from The Starving Artist at Edible Arts who has a delightful blog.....that I think should really have a warning sign at the very top saying.....WARNING THIS BLOG IS DANGEROUSLY DELICIOUS !!! Because it really is! She has a talent for writing that makes you want to come back. She has an incredible talent for photography.But the bottom line is her recipes will make your mouth water.....and I promise you they taste as good as her photos. I was going to include a picture I took of her Vanilla Pancakes that I have made several times ,but I can't capture how good they are in my photos. So go check them out for yourself.
I have to say between Stephanie at The Starving Artist and Katerina from Culinary Flavors I'm never stumped for a good meal idea!
EVERYONE on my list of favorite blogs....PLEASE, PLEASE go check them all out...you will feel as if you have traveled the planet and met a lifetime's worth of great people!
Happy Blogging =)
