I was so happy to be awarded The Lobster Award by Chareen, last week. This award was started by Victor as a way of thanking those kind people who stop to comment and offer encouragement for our blogging efforts. Victor says it
is an honor given to those Bloggers who visit you regularly, no matter how feeble, tiresome, long-winded and sleep making your posts may be, and who leave a word of encouragement or good cheer in your Comments Box.
I love that because my blog posts are feeble, tiresome, long-winded and sleep making! Anyone who sacrifices time in their day to respond to any of my drawn-out ramblings truly deserves an award of the highest honour.
I guess, for me, being able to share and swap thoughts with friends - from all over the world! - is the reason why I blog. I love getting into conversation with everyone I meet here and on their own blogs. And, I'm just so grateful, inspired and encouraged whenever someone takes the time to stop and respond to some little thought or idea that I've shared. I really appreciate your kindness.
At this point, I'm supposed to nominate my own lovely commenters and thank them by passing on the award. But, as most of my regular commenters seem to have received this award already, I'll just mention everyone who has so generously added to the conversation here, over the months - it sounds very cliche but I wouldn't still be blogging without your thoughtful feedback:-)
