Last year the BlogLuxe awards were giant jewels etched with bragging rights.
Oh man how I wanted one. I still do. Like. Really.
I may have held one. Stroked one. Pretended to accept it all Roberto Benigni style.
Fast forward to this year.
For most Inspirational Blog.
I have a folder in my email labeled “warm fuzzies.”
From the emails I’ve saved over the last year one would believe I have “most inspirational” in the bag.
Then I checked out the other nominees.
I’m going with “IT’S JUST AN HONOR TO BE NOMINATED.”
If you would have ever told me I would have made it onto a list with those ladies I would have told you to shut up because lying is mean and bad.
“But one night…I stumbled upon a blog post that changed my life at that moment….that very second. It answered my prayers. It saved my baby girl’s life.”
I have a doctor who thanked me for doing what he has always tried to do for his patients.
“What I could do, I did on a very small scale. What you do benefits thousands, tens or hundreds of thousands maybe. Thanks so much for what you do.”
I never ever ever thought I would be here. I was telling Allison at EVO that I feel as though I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing. And again, had to you told me that exactly what I am supposed to be doing is writing too much about my life on the Internet? I would have asked you to check your facts a little better.
You say you are here for my writing. But I am here because of you. Every single one of you.
You have saved me more than once.
I would never be here without you. And I don’t mean on the Internet or on this list of inspiring bloggers.
I literally would not be here.
I wish there were a category for best readers, because you, my friends would win it.
(this is a picture of my newest felinephew Wesley. I have always felt what my blog truly lacks is more cats. so here you go, a picture of a cat. he’s cute right? Oh, and if you do feel like voting? You can vote once per day through July 12th. Thank you for even considering it. Seriously. Nomination. Dude. Amazing.)
