Oh, I forgot yesterday, I am meant to be nominating two people a day for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. That’s a bloody mouthful, isn’t it? I’m just calling it my Blogging Superhero Team.
Problem was I had study to do yesterday (that I actually did! Shock, horror) and then I was off to work. Well, I say ‘work’. I was refereeing 7 games of indoor soccer. It’s not so much like work because I’ve been playing there for 7 years and reffing for a year, so I know everyone there quite well. It’s a bit of fun most nights.
Anyway, back to this time-consuming award business…
I nominate today, The Girl Who Blogs and Awakening to Your Story.
Kaela, over at The Girl Who Blogs, is hilarious, sweet, witty, intelligent, an amazing writer, and of course her blog is absolutely brilliant. Every post makes me laugh and her comments always make me smile. If you have not seen her site you are seriously missing out! I’m annoyed it took me this long to find her blog. No Blogging Superhero Team should be without!
Eric, over at Awakening to Your Story is one of the most insightful people you’re likely to find in the blogosphere. His blog is pure wonderfulness! There is always much wisdom to be had over at Eric’s blog, but he also shares so much through his comments. This guy really knows what he’s talking about. His is another blog I would highly recommend and I wouldn’t be caught dead leaving him off my Blogging Superhero Team.
So a big thanks to Kaela and Eric for sharing your amazing blogs with us all and just for being all-round marvelous people. Thanks guys!
What are you studying EJ?
Professional Writing and Editing. Just started mid-year.
Sounds like a proper subject…
2 year course. We’ll see how we go. Fingers crossed it becomes useful!
I know how you feel about these nominations. I am struggling at present with a heap of Awards (that I can’t believe have come to me) and can’t quite obey all the rules of these Awards. However, I am slowly getting there! About to post a blog to explain it all. Like you, I’m so busy with other things but I’ll get there. Tess
I wouldn’t blame you or anyone else for taking shortcuts on the rules of those award thingies. Haha. I almost feel guilty nominating people, knowing I’m throwing work at them. Congrats on all the awards!
Thanks EJ. I know what you mean thought. I just published my blog in which I wrote all about it … guilt and all!
Fantastic! Can’t wait to read, I’m headed there now!
I am suffused with suffocating guilt already on this awards bit, EJ!!! Two down and I feel like crawling into a small hole and covering the hatch with earth! There is no way of doing it fairly; that’s the problem. Anyway, love your piece above – made me smile, that did! Ali
You’re absolutely right, Ali. No fair way at all. Thanks though, glad to make ya smile! 🙂
Thank you, EJ! I’m storing up all these nice compliments for a day when I’ve been rejected by a million publishers and need a pick-me-up. 😉
I think the phrase for you would be “too kind” and for me would be “eternally grateful,” or something like that.
If that day does ever come, I’ll be mortified, surprised, and many other bad “ised’s”. Also, if that preposterous notion does occur, just come visit here, I’ll happily remind you how remarkably spectacular you are.
You’re welcome! hehe. 😀
I am truly lost down the rabbit hole. I believed I had replied to this wonderful acknowledgment, only to scroll back through mounds of posts and learn that I am remiss. Quite remiss. And belated.
EJ, you are more than kind. Thank you for sharing such kind words with your readers. You and I have already acknowledged that we have, shall I say, complimentary writing styles. There are few bloggers to whom I more look forward to reading. Your humor and matter-of-factness is refreshing, welcoming and truly authentic.
I am humbled and feel privileged to be a part of your Blogging Superhero Team. You’re certainly on mine. With great appreciation…
You call it ‘kind’, I simply call it ‘the truth’. You ARE brilliant, wise and all the rest of it. It’s my pleasure to spread the word. Thanks for your compliments also, I am honored to be a part of your Blogging Superhero Team! Haha.
