Thank You!!! One Lovely Blog Award

ONE LOVELY BLOG AWARD

As a new blogger, I was surprised and honored to be selected for an award. Greg Mercer from Big Red Carpet Nursing nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.

I’ve been following Greg for some time now. He has a master degree in nursing, and he’s a psych nurse, a hospital educator, and a nursing professor. His site has diverse topics; tips on people skills, mental health, some art and other fun stuff. It’s not just for nurses about nursing! It’s good information for anyone! His subtitle says it all: You Can Thrive, With The Right Tools! Check out his site http://bigredcarpetnursing.com

Thank you Greg, for this One Lovely Blog Award!

About The One Lovely Blog Award

Nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for those newer or up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and to also help the new blogger reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow-blogger who choses them. This award acknowledges bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with their viewers and followers. In order to “accept” the award the nominated blogger must follow several guidelines.

The Rules

  1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated you for the award.
  2. List the Rules and Display the One Lovely Blog Award logo to you post and/or blog.
  3. Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
  4. Nominate around 15 bloggers that you admire and inform the nominees by commenting on their blog.
  5. Follow the blogger that nominated you (if not already)!

Not because of the rule to nominate 15 bloggers and not because the award is for newer or up-and-coming bloggers, I want to nominate the following bloggers because they are experienced bloggers. I know them through their interesting and creative blog sites. I’ve learned a thing or two by following them! I appreciate and I’m grateful for all of the people who chose to read and follow my blog.

I thank you, new blogger friends on the nomination list, and those not on the list. There really could be more. But there’s acceptance work involved and some bloggers are too busy writing books or creating new and interested posts. And some bloggers have too many awards (can that really happen?) and not accepting more, while other have hundreds of followers already (could there be too many?).

Some of you  busy, busy  bloggers and bloggers with many, many followers on the list qualify for not accepting the nomination. I do understand. Please keep the thank you and gratitude anyway for following my blog.  I’ll  let you know about your nomination  in a comment on your site. It will take me a little time. Don’t be shocked if you get this post beforehand.

    • Meg, thank you so much for your congratulations on the award. When I put the around 15 nomination list together, I forgot to include you! I’m sorry! It was a lot of work and the pressure was on to complete the rules! You do have One Lovely Blog and I’d like to nominate you for the award. We’ve been blogger friends for some time now and I love your writing, especially continuing parts of Beatitude Point! I don’t know if your site is “award-free” (many are) or if you are too busy writing to accept. I’ll understand. Which ever way it goes, please keep the thank you and gratitude anyway for following my blog.

That thrill – knowing that another blogger is thinking of me – never gets old. We write to scratch our own itch, but the truth is we want to touch others with our words.
