I thought I'd better publish this today since tomorrow is April 1st. It might seem like I'm playing an April Fools' Day joke if I wait!
I've been nominated and given an Outstanding Blogger Award by Wendy whose blog is called Pieceful Thoughts. Her quilts are beautiful, and she writes as if she's just having a conversation with me. I have so enjoyed getting to know her through her blog posts (and our side e-mail conversations).
The other day I was happily reading along in her post when I was shocked to see that she'd nominated my humble little blog for this award. I actually clicked on my own link to see if it was really me or some other Word Weaver Art. Yep. The link brought me right here. You honor me, Wendy. Thank you.
The Outstanding Blogger Award is given one blogger to another. It's a way of supporting and acknowledging one another. I love that. I love reading blogs. I love coming across a blog that I really enjoy then going all the way back to its beginning and reading it through. I love the present-tense-ness of blogs. (Ok, it's not a word, but it gets to my point.) A post may have been written 5 years ago, but it's as if it happened yesterday.
As an award recipient, I get to answer some questions from Wendy. Right away you'll see why I was surprised to see my blog included. For one thing, I'm not a quilter. Not to worry, Wendy gave me complete permission to change her questions to suit myself.
- Silence, music, podcast, or something else when you create / work?
- What's your favorite part of the process as you create / write?
- Where do you do your craft, and what's that space like?
- How do you choose who to follow? (Blogs, Instagram, Facebook, etc.)
- Why do you write and post on your blog?
