Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg

A big Thank You to the creator of for nominating my blog for this award. Hope I don’t mess up any of the rules. Her blogs have at times given me laughter and knowledge. As I’ve said before I had no clue what to expect when I entered this world of blogging. I had never read a blog possibly never saw myself operating one. I did not know what my first post should be about. I was in a whole new world. Fortunately I had my niece who gave me advice and ideas on what to do as a reader of blogs. So a big thanks goes to my niece Tiff. With bloggers most of us, disclose tidbits about ourselves at times. Through those tidbits forms a person, a human being you kind of feel a connection with and the blogs you will find at the lower portion of this post you feel that connection with.

The list of my nominees are:










Boy picking these blogs was like eating potato chips, I couldn’t pick just one. I had said I wasn’t going to list too many b/c of the notification requirement, but once I got started I just couldn’t stop and there would be more but for Blog of the Year 2012 Award I thought maybe the Award should be reserved for those who blog most often. More really should be on this list b/c there are some awesome blogs here on WP.
