Blog of the Year 2012

“So never lose an opportunity of urging a practical beginning, however small, for it is wonderful how often in such matters the mustard-seed germinates and roots itself.” ― Florence Nightingale

Blog of the Year Award 2 star jpeg

When I first started writing Women Making Strides, I wondered how readers would react. I was encouraged and excited when I received a nomination from Sharla Shults for the One Lovely Blog Award. Sharla makes a special effort to recognize other bloggers. Now she has nominated Women Making Strides for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award. Women Making Strides has won two stars, one from the blog Catnip Of Life and the other from the blog Awakenings. Thank you, Sharla! I’m honored and excited that Women Making Strides is a recipient of the award and has earned Two Stars. Encouragement from strong writers like Sharla mean a lot to newer bloggers like me. Sharla has earned the maximum of six stars on both of her blogs.

I want to encourage other bloggers the same way that Sharla has encouraged me. The bloggers that I’m nominating can find the rules here. My nominations are:

L.A. Freeland

Kick Back Moments

A Writer’s Journey

Wrestling Pollyanna

Moleko’s Art

Living on the Edge of the Wild

Inspire 1 Life Everyday

Jen’s Thoughts
