Awards Time and Neat People


Real Neat Blog Award

Bring on the Award Show! Thanks, Jez!

Hello real neat people and welcome to the awards show! Hehe 🙂

I was pleased yesterday to follow-up on my blog comments. Thanks everyone, I love reading what you write to me! Included in the updates was a lovely note from blogger / poet / awesome Jez Farmer. I am honored to be the recipient of the Real Neat Blog Award, given to me from Jez! Thank you so much. Knowing that my blog is well received by this wonderful writer is humbling. You can find Jez at The Boy Poet.

The ‘rules’ of The Real Neat Blog Award are: (feel free not to act upon them if you don’t have time; or don’t accept awards)

  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
  4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
  5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)


I am going to use the same seven questions as Jez so my answers are here too:

  1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?

Oh those Americans! They keep coming and bringing their smiles 🙂 I appreciate all visits, of course!

  1. What is your favourite sport?

Unveiling a New Site and Awards: Wow, Happy Friday!

Hi everyone and happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well and made it through the week smoothly (okay, if not smoothly then I hope at least there were calm parts to it). Insert smiles: here!

I am excited today to unveil my new site, also here on WordPress. I have been working on it over the past week, although I have had this idea for several months now. And, of course, the root of it goes back many years for me. You see, it’s a website intended to celebrate women. It is called When Women Inspire. To read the first post there, click the image below.

The new site is titled When Women Inspire

When Women Inspire: What it is

The goal for the site is set out on its About page, along with my reason for starting it. When Women Inspire is a site that I hope encourages women to achieve all that they have the potential to be. And I am fortunate to have met some amazing women in my life so far. Feel free to check out the site and follow it, although I by no means am making you. I understand it won’t appeal to everyone, and that’s fine. After all, if we all liked the same things then the world would be even crazier than it already is!

The Academy Awards are tonight. Are you excited for the event? Or do you plan to avoid the TV area and subsequent media coverage?

I’m dreaming of the beautiful gowns and will live vicariously through the Vera Wang dresses and Armani tuxedos.
