Illuminating? I am not sure that term has ever been applied to me until now, unless you count the glare off of my baldhead. To me, sunrises and sunsets are illuminating. That said, I am both humbled and honored that this blog has been nominated for the Illuminating Blogger Award.
I am also a bit surprised, mostly because the nomination came from a food blog, Food Stories. Kindly check out that blog and you will discover that it is more than about food. I am not a foodie, and but I do enjoy food, although I do have to follow a special diet. I have written about that on this blog, too.
As part of the condition of acceptance of the award, I have to reveal one random fact about myself. You may find this hard to believe, but when I was young I had long, blond, curly hair. Look at me now.
I also need to nominate five other worthy bloggers. With so many excellent bloggers in the blogging world, that is a daunting task. I recommend these five bloggers:
If you want to be personally illuminated, visit Carrie Craig’s blog. Without a doubt, her words will inspire you.
Even at her young age, Hannah Karena Jones sheds some light on the art of writing at her blog. Waiting is important for writers.
Niki Fulton illuminates life with artsy photography and to the point descriptors. You can find her blog here.
For serious writers, Anita Nolan has the inside track on both information and inspiration. If you write, her blog is a must.
Finally, I thought it only appropriate to nominate a well-written and illustrated food blog. The Gourmet Wino does both.
I’m sure you’ll find these bloggers even more worthy of this nice award than me. Nevertheless, I do appreciate the kind gesture. It’s nice to know others appreciate your creativity, whether it’s revealed through writing or photography.
