Lisa from Rebirth of Lisa has most graciously awarded my blog with a Blogger Recognition Award. This is my first award of any sort since I started this blogging thingie so I decided to play along, thank you very much Lisa and I must say it does give me a warm fuzzy feeling or could it be from the celebratory glass of a sweet red I am having *cheers*
Just the other day I got a notification from WordPress congratulating me on my second year anniversary (makes it seem like a marriage) since the start of this blog, so I will accept this award as a well deserved “birthday” present on behalf of my blog. #WeOwnAugust I was listening to ZiFm and they having birthday celebrations, that’s the tag they have been using (but how does one own the a month unless you named after it or you buy it but from whom would you have bought it? those are things that keep me up at night, that and the internet its like a modern day Hotel California, you login any time you want but you never ever leave *insert evil laugh*)
How did this blog start? Honestly I do not remember it must have been some fear of missing out thing, you know you open an account on a social media site, tinker around a little then leave it, I think that’s what I did so I have scrolled to my first post to see what I was on about, then it hit me.
I started this blog simply to be myself and take off my mask, We All Wear Masks to write down the crazy stuff in my head (Things I can not speak about lest people look at me like I done escaped from a mental institution. My head does not need examining I had it checked, I looked in the mirror and it looks pretty darn fine to me, end of discussion) so that I could clear space for more but`yeah I was mainly on a poetic phase Of being Me now I am not following any formula when the mood moves me I write something and in my head I look at you looking me at looking at you and I laugh and laugh and laugh, there is no judging here, right? When I cant sleep these are my musings.
So I have left sublime indicators for links on some of my old posts that I would love you have a look see over cup of tea perhaps, here’s to my old friends to my new friends and to the random blogger who just happened to end up here how did you get here welcome anyway and do stick around.
My advice to new bloggers, hmmm, hey just do you and mostly have fun. I write mainly to me, for me by me (sounds cliche to you? sue ^_^) and I get pleasantly surprised when I find people having as much fun reading as I had writing. A friend said to me “tune in to your natural frequency and feel the resonance”
on to the hard bit finding people to nominate. So I have been meaning to give a shoutout to the blogs which I constantly check up on to see what they been up. Know this I stalk each and everyone of you I might not comment but I watch you
while you sleep post, I mean I read what you post.
please note This is in no particular order
*Drum roll please*
- Cardboard Express
- I came for the soup
- The Mind Ramp
- Writing Verse
- Life through the disability lens
- AE DogBe
and a special shoutout to bold blind beauty because I can and I have a sneaky suspicion that if I didnt things would not go well at all.
Many thanks again Lisa this actually was kinda fun I was thinking it would be such a chore.
