I’m a very inspiring blogger, or so I’ve been told.

Writeinthewrongway very generously honored me with this award today.  Which means a lot to me because it leads me to believe that someone is actually reading my posts.  It comes with a pay it forward clause though which I appreciate- because what is one good turn without another? Here are the stipulations;

1. Display the Award Certificate on your website. 

2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented you with the award. 

3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers.  (see my next thought)

4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after you have linked them in the post. 

5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself. 

So rule number 3. . . Yeah. .  . I don’t know that many yet. I’m still a newbie only weeks old.  So I don’t have 15 bloggers that I follow yet.

 I will however honor who I do follow.

1. an exhausted mom’s journey to publication– Someone I relate to since she is on a mission of her own.

2. The live simply blog– always looking for insight on how to not ‘want’ as much as I do.

3. HarshReality– I can appreciate is openness and desire to share

4. Zero-Knowledge Proofs-providing insight into bettering my career practices.

5. ihaveanopinionidliketoshare– just found this morning thanks to this award. I love her candor and I can relate to the pregnancy woes.

6. Write in the wrong way– I love your candor and support.  Thanks again.

Okay so I’m sure I will find more fabulous blogs, bit for now there it is.

Now for 7 interesting things about myself.

1. I hate making decision for fear I will choose wrong.

2. My favorite thing to do as a mom is cuddle with my daughters.

3. I love solving puzzles of all kinds.

4. I love drinking Dr. Pepper.

5. I have been teaching for over a decade.

6. I lament the loss of customer service and chivalry.

7. Candy Crush frustrates the hell out of me and I can’t stop playing.

So there it is. Paid forward.  Please let me know if I did something wrong with the links- it’s my first time linking.
