It’s a Conspiracy!

Y’all are ganging up on me! You’ve given three more awards to me just today! The latest perpetrator is none other than Ivon Prefontaine of the interesting and thought-provoking Teacher As Transformer blog that you can find here:

Ivon has kindly and generously nominated my site for both the Very Inspiring Blogger and the Sunshine Blogger awards. Thank you, Ivon. I am touched and honored by your nominations.


As I’ve been recently doing with most award nominations, I plan to visit all of the blogs he nominated, and I usually end up following some of them too.

I also frequently introduce readers to other blogs that I love by re-blogging some of their posts that I especailly enjoyed.

I find that doing these things in response to award nominations can help spread the love to many blogs and I feel it is in the spirit of the awards if not the letter of the laws (the growing lists of things that many awards request that bloggers do when nominated for them.)

I sincerely hope that my response is acceptable to those who kindly and thoughtfully have nominated me for various awards.

      LOL! Thank you, Camsgranny! I’m laughing because your comment almost sounds apologetic considering that you are for kindly honoring my blog in this way–and considering my earlier blogs today about awards, I can’t say as I blame you! I should be far more gracious!

      I truly appreciate that readers invest the considerable amount of time to honor my site in this way. It’s just that I’m getting so behind in all my blogging communications that it’s clear that I’ll never catch up. I’ll do the best I can while trying to keep the amount of time that I blog to a level that almost sort of kind of maybe allows for me to have a non-online life too. At this point, I think I could blog 23 hours per day just communicating with those who like, comment, post, or give awards to me, and I think I’d probably still be losing ground ever day. Ir’s a wonderful yet frustrating challenge to have.

      I think this falls into the category of “Be careful what you wish for…”


  2. Woo Hoo! Enjoy Russ! Congrats to you! xo
