In the middle of the crazy Thanksgiving holiday, I barely looked at my blog. Once I slowed down, I was thrilled to find some wonderful news! I had been awarded the Blog of the Year Award from Angie at OCD in the Family. I was so honored; especially when she said that I was an inspiration! Thank you so much, Angie. 🙂
If you haven’t stopped by OCD in the Family, I would highly recommend it!
After the excitement settled, I thought about sites that have served as an inspiration to me this year. There are four that I am especially grateful for that allowed me to be temporarily affiliated with their work as a guest writer.
The Outlaw Mama– Christie is bright and witty and has a way with words that keeps me wanting more. I believe that she was the first person that let me write a guest post about my worst job experience. I am grateful that she allowed me that opportunity and I continue to learn so much from her as a writer.
Life With The Frog-Kathy is a mom that has experienced joy despite living through great loss. The courage and grace that she shows is amazing. I was lucky enough to have one of my stories be part of a grief series that she did. Professional and kind are words that describe that experience with her!
The Mom of the Year-Meredith gave me a great compliment when I was honored to be included as one of her Mom of the Year writers. I loved writing that piece and Meredith’s take on parenting has kept me visiting! Everyone should check out Meredith’s work. She makes me smile!
Finding Ninee-Kristi has a way of taking challenges and turning them into inspirational pieces. She is generous with her words and time, and every time that I read her writing I think of ways that I can do better. I was lucky to be included in her Our Land series.
These four writers have made an impression on me as a writer and as a parent. I now honor them with the Blog of the Year 2013 Award!
Now, go check them out and see what I mean!
