One week ago today, I had the pleasure of being nominated by Easter Ellen of Overcoming To Becoming for something called a Super Sweet Blogging Award. Now, it’s been quite a long time since I’ve been nominated for any kind of blogging award, so I’ll take it, with gratitude! Thank you for the nomination, dear Easter!
Easter is a Christian writer, poet and a beautiful soul who inspires her readers through her life stories and poetry. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing her online for many years and have read her blog quite often. She is an honest, intelligent, kind mother of four who hasn’t had an easy life but she has never succumbed to anger, self-pity or bitterness. Instead, she has fought her battles, soldiered on and continues to turn to God for His support and guidance as she continues along her life’s journey. Easter is a Christian whose light shines from within by the example she sets in her own life. While I’m not a Christian, I enjoy her writing very much.
I confess that I don’t read as many blog posts as I’d like to because of time constraints, but the blogs that I’m nominating are all blogs that I have read and enjoyed quite often and their authors totally deserve to be recognized for their consistently interesting, thoughtful, entertaining and inspirational content. I don’t expect any of them to carry on and participate in this Super Sweet Blogging Award post-a-thon, but if they want to, that’s great!
Your time online is precious, I know, but if you’re looking for some wonderful bloggers to follow, please take note of my suggestions.
Here are the steps you need to take now:
1. Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated you.
2. Answer five super sweet questions.
The 5 sweet questions:
Cookies or cake? — Very tough decision, but I’ll have to go with cake. There are so many kinds of cake that I adore including chocolate layer cake, carrot cake with caramel icing, peach torte with whipped cream, red velvet cupcakes, lemon cake, almost any kind of cheesecake, you see where I’m going with this!
Chocolate or vanilla? — Chocolate all the way, baby!
Favourite sweet treat? — Brownies, with icing of course!
When do you crave sweet things the most? — At that time of the month, ladies.
Sweet nick name? — Christine Jellybean
3. Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in your blog post.
4. Nominate a dozen other bloggers. The following list is in no particular order. You all have fantastic, interesting blogs.
Here are my choices to nominate for this thoughtful award: (and all of you deserve it fully!)
