One of my readers, the lovely Jeanie In Paradise, who writes a blog about what a paradise her life in Paradise, Australia is (it does sound pretty wonderful), nominated me for an Inspirational Blogger Award. It's right up there in the right-hand corner. Thank you Jeanie, I am exceptionally flattered and appreciative.
I think it goes like this: I nominate five more of my favorite bloggers for an Inspirational Blogger Award and then they share the love themselves by passing it on.
My first nomination obviously goes to Jenn over at Jlogged. She's a personal friend and I love hanging out with her. I find her perspective on things, like family budgets and personal finance, valuable and insightful. She's also quite hilarious, which I dig. She's got three sons, no daughters, so I'm taking notes for when Mr. Zack starts doing really boy stuff.
My second nomination found me first, Blue Milk. Her tag line is thinking + motherhood = feminist - I wish I had written it. I love what she has to say about motherhood and feminism. She gets what this blog is all about and it's nice to know that I'm not alone in the universe. You should check her out, she's inspiring.
I will also nominate Jace Shoemaker-Galloway Internet Safety Advisor . This is a realm of expertise that is rapid and constantly changing. Imagine inventing a completely new role in the universe. Also, imagine that your mission in life is to protect kids from online predators. That's her mission and I think it's vital to the empowerment of girls. She's been nominated for Best Educational Blog and I think everyone should go vote for her.
I want to use my fourth nomination for my b5media friends collectively. Mom Gadget Gayla McCord, Sports Girls Play Charlene Polanski, Kate Baggot at Babylune and of course Thrifty Mommy Karen Weideman are very inspiring in all they do.
Gala Darling is my fifth nominee. She's got the perfect take on style and fashion and beauty. It's just so fun! Her hair changes colors like other people change their shirts, she's so sexy and cute and funny and photographs really, really well. Gala seriously must have heard about all the rules and just giggled, did whatever she wanted and got loads of success for it. She's into shameless self-promotion and I am dying to have the nerve to emulate her in that regard. Really, why should we be ashamed to promote our skills and talents and services? If you're feeling blue as Gala's hair, hop on over to her site. You won't be able to resist the happy fun.
