So you know I’m new to the blog world–with only seven blogs under my belt, I’m still all wet behind the ears, breath smelling like Similac. Still, being able to express my thoughts and opinions unfiltered is, for this author/columnist/journalist one of the most freeing experiences I’ve had in my 20-year career as a writer. Blogging makes me happy. Seeing that my words and thoughts and personal reflections have moved others makes me incredibly happy, too. And today, I’m most giddy when I tell you that my blog buddy, Pink and Green Mama, has graciously given MyBrownBaby a blog award!
After I finished my Oscar Award-worthy speech, in which I thanked Pink and Green Mama, The Lord, my mother, father, babies, agent, next door neighbor, dog, 6th grade teacher, the guy who bags my groceries at the local Kroger, etc., I read the rest of the award post and found out that I get to spread the blog award love to my fav blogs–to acknowledge that I read them faithfully, and to hip the good folks who follow MyBrownBaby to some great bloggers they should read, too. I love these blogs because they are all-at-once irreverent, insightful, funny, lovely to look at, and, most importantly, beautifully written.
To the MyBrownBaby nominees: All that’s asked of you is that you pass the award on to your chosen eight blogger buddies, and leave the following message on your post: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Now, without further ado, MyBrownBaby is passing the blog award on to:
