There are a host of adjectives and phrases used to describe my blog’s content:
How about …
And my personal favorite,
“I’m going to seriously blow chunks.”
Then along comes Jess of A Winsome Journey. She did the unexpected. She called my blog lovely. Lovely.
Awww. I just don’t know what to say!
Of course, I couldn’t agree more (not for the sake of my blog, though, but for my subjects). In fact, she took one big step beyond lovely and nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you, Jess! That means a lot coming from someone who has a truly lovely and beautiful blog.
Just for grins, I did an actual search of all of the comments that have ever happened upon my posts since January for the word “lovely.” Until Jess, it happened exactly twice. Both times the word was used in conjunction with someone’s feelings rather than to describe some facet of my blog. That’s twice. In four months of blogging.
Now, it’s fair to say that I think bugs, reptiles, drawings of stick figure people eating poop, and the stuff that comes out of bathroom sinks are all lovely in their own right. I just never thought anyone else thought so too. So Jess, it’s nice to know we’re on the same page here.
The Nominees. In usual WordPress award-nominating fashion, there’s a hook. I get to pass on the nomination to 7 bloggers whom I feel also are deserving of the award. Since I only just created another (very long) award post just weeks ago, I will make this acceptance / passing-of-the-torch short and sweet. If my blog is lovely, theirs surpass mine at break-neck speed. If you haven’t already, be sure to drop in for a visit. I so very much enjoy their loveliness.
