The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

vib-trophy

I am both honored and flattered to learn that I have been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Four Blue Hills (A repository, of sorts). I am also a bit tickled by all of this because until I received notification of my nomination I didn’t even know such an award existed. How cool! Bloggers recognizing inspiring members of their own community, nominees Paying it Forward! I love it!

The rules of the award require that I do three things:

  • Thank the person who nominated me and link back to her blog.
  • Share seven things about myself
  • Nominate seven bloggers for the award

So let me get to it!

A BIG THANKS TO FOUR BLUE HILLS
Four Blue Hills was one of my first subscribers and loyal supporters. FBH is a wonderfully inspiring blog –the home to a potpourri of interesting posts on everything from photography and politics to human rights. There is something there for everyone so drop by and have a look around!
