My blogger colleague Marcella Rousseau has nominated me for two awards: Super-sweet award and Beautiful Blogger Award. Marcella writes one of my favorite blogs, For Your Good Health. Please stop by her blog, and I think you’ll discover why she’s an inspiration to me.
I’ve received several awards since I started writing Living Lightly Upon this Earth in April. Each time I’m honored to be nominated. The requirements for acceptance involve mentioning the nominator (thanks, Marcella), answering some questions about ourselves, and nominating others. I’m going to take a few liberties today with the requirements. The super-sweet award wants answers about our sweet tooth, and I try to pretend I don’t have one. I’ve answered lots of questions about myself on the other blogs. Since my book Live from the Road is about travel and I’m going to launch a new blog with travel posts in the next month, I’m going to give a list of some not so common places I’ve visited over the years.
- Marrakesh, Morocco
- Cortona, Italy
- Leaning Tower of Texas
- Eureka, California
- Bocas del Toro, Panama
- Santiago, Chile
- Newquay, Cornwall
- Stockbridge: Michigan, Massachusetts, Georgia, and England
- Paradise, Michigan
- Hell, Michigan
These awards are a way for our blogs to be recognized and to draw more followers and comments to our sites. I appreciate that, and I appreciate the followers of both my blogs. I love getting comments because it tells me someone out there is listening/reading. I want the same for my fellow bloggers. I’m going to provide a list below of the blogs I read every time they write a post (I follow 30-some posts – I can’t read every single one!) because they are so inspiring to me. If you’re reading this post, please visit at least one of the blogs below and leave them a comment if you like what you read. That helps us bloggers as much as anything.
- For Your Good Health
- What’s Green with Betsy?
- The Museum of Forgotten Pickles
- Staci Troilo
- Hazy Shades of Me
- Attempting zero waste lifestyle in a military household
- Olemike’s Blog

- Life in the Blue Ridges
I will leave it to these bloggers now nominated for the Super-sweet award and the Beautiful Blogger Award to do what they may with the award!
And please remember to visit at least one of them and leave a comment. Thanks!
