Being honored by your peers never gets old. I am long overdue for acknowledging the generosity of Mina for sharing with me the Wonderful Blogger Award. When I started blogging I was intrigued by the awards being shared among bloggers and was absolutely delighted to receive my first one from Sandra. Deciding who to share the award with is a daunting task. There are bloggers who you develop close virtual friendships with and you want to shine the spotlight on them every chance you get. Then there are the new bloggers that you’ve discovered that you want to help along the way.
We must remember what it felt like when we were newbies, stumbling around the blogosphere and learning the ins and outs of food blogging. Remember the feeling of getting a real honest to goodness comment, not a spam generated one? In the words of Chef Dennis, “Comments are like a drug to bloggers, we live for them, we love them, they keep us going!” Recognition in the form of a comment or an award means a lot no matter how long you’ve been doing this. So I’m back at square one, who do I share this award with?
Foodie friends I’m asking for your help. Send me the name of the blogger and their link that you think is deserving. It doesn’t matter whether they’re a newbie or vet. Whether they have ten awards or none. I’ll take the first 10 I get. If there’s a duplicate I’ll keep going until I get 10 different ones. One more thing, please be patient, I’m going on vacation this weekend. Handing out the awards will be at the top of my to-do list when I get back. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!!!
