When You are Recognized

What is an award or nomination?

What does it mean whether you accept or politely turn it down?

Whether or not you accept an award, it means someone has recognized your gifts.

I want to thank the lovely Vikki Thompson of The View Outside for her nomination of my blog for the Illuminating Blogger Award. Vikki has been a dedicated blogging friend, whose posts inspire me.

While I appreciate awards and nominations, I do not accept them often. Believe me, I appreciate the support shown.

I have been incognito this weekend due to the husband’s birthday and family illness, but an exciting news post and the last When We Write Letters will return this Thursday and Sunday.

For now, I would like to nominate seven other bloggers who also influence me: 

Shannon A. Thompson

Eagle-Eyed Editor

For the Love of Autism and Writing

Jennifer M Eaton

memomuse’s Blog

Pete Denton – Writer

Lens and Pens by Sally


There are many other amazing blogs, as well as bloggers who have supported me in my first year as a blogger. It is not easy to always keep up with a two-year-old finding the joy in throwing around a gift can.

Thank you, Rebecca T. Dickinson


Blogging Award Nomination

In 2008, my co-worker Krystal encouraged me to start a blog. With my basic knowledge of copyright concerning my creative work, I was hesitant. Despite being a part of the generation of new technology, I have been somewhat shy towards what is Right Now.

I am happy to have a blog where I share my knowledge of books, writing, creative work and even some of my photography. Thanks to those who read and continue to read. I enjoy your blogs so much!

The Liebster Blog Award

I received a nomination for the Liebster Blogging Award from Pete Denton.

Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, and the award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers who deserve some recognition and support to keep on blogging.

I’ve learned from Pete about the honor of this nomination. Liebster encourages us to continue to write great quality or shoot awesome photos as we grow in the blogging universe.


The rules are simply:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.

2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favorite bloggers and keep it going!


I enjoy discovering new blogs, and there are so many I wish to honor just for being awesome. I nominate the following for the Liebster Awards:
