‘G’ is for ‘Gratitude’…and ‘Gold Stars.’
I have long-often joked about my enchantment with gold stars. I love how they symbolize our appreciation for each other.
Yesterday morning, I awoke to an email (and then other social media messages) that said I had been nominated in the category of ‘Best Overall Blogger’ for The Annual Bloggers Bash Awards (ABBAs). I was taken aback. I hadn’t ever considered the possibility of being nominated.
It amazes me that a small blog I began in January 2016, to document my retirement, has become part of an online community where like-minded thinkers from around the world share, challenge, inspire and support each other. When I’ve thought of giving up blogging, this community has always kept me going. When I wonder why I take on seemingly overwhelming challenges (like joining ‘A to Z!’), once again the support from readers and other bloggers quickly reminds me why.
Anyone can vote for the Annual Bloggers Bash Awards. You do not need to be a blogger. This year’s categories are: Best Overall Blogger, Funniest Blogger, Most Inspirational Blogger, Most Informative Blogger, Best Book Review Blog, Service to Bloggers, Hidden Gem and Best Pal.
Voting is easy and only takes a minute. I know that all nominees (including me) would love for you to share your feedback. This poll closes April 30. Please click here to cast your vote.
Thank you to all who make these awards, and this event, happen. Your hard work and efforts make a huge difference to many.
