I've been blogging since last spring, but missed most of July and August due to being away and on a snail of a dial-up connection for the summer. So I feel that I'm just finding my "space" in the great wild-blue-yonder of the Blogosphere. I've met many nice people, and found that everyone has something to say, usually positive and constructive. I DO very much value the opportunity to share thoughts and perceptions with people all over the world. And of course, a little bit of art, gardening knowledge, stuff about the moon, stars, and planets, writing, cooking, our Earth, and just about any subject you can think of. Blogging is a great way to foster community, even internationally, as we all express our concerns and hopefully perceive our common humanity.
The only negative for me, is that now I have another addiction (besides chocolate and coffee) and it's a very time-consuming one at that! Actually, most of my posts are not that involved that they take a lot of time, but giving people the recognition they deserve DOES take a lot of time. I've been extra busy this fall with getting ready for my solo painting show in February, and feeling a bit frantic overall. I'm really upset to have been given a few awards (for which I'm grateful and feel honored) but have not had the time to post some of them or pass them on. So I'm going to start doing this, now that I have a FEW things tied up this week, and I'll start with the first one.
Many weeks ago, Cindy from Rosehaven Cottage gave me the Creative Blogger Award. I'm going to finally post this on my page and pass it on to Floyd Craig at Floyd's Secrets of the Earth, http://floydssecrets.blogspot.com/, Saboma at http://maryannaville.blogspot.com/, and Ellen at Positive Communication at http://marcomblog.web-log.nl/marcom_blog/. These are bloggers who look outward at the world and express their convictions and knowledge in a passionate and committed way. Not to mention creative!
So thank you Cindy, for passing this award to me. I appreciate it very much!
And Floyd, Saboma, and Ellen, keep up the good work! I'm sorry I don't know how to embed your URLs in your blog titles. Bear with me on this steep (it's steep for me, lol...) learning curve!
