My First Blog Award

January 29, 2012
The lovely Steffi of Maedchen Zimmer has bestowed upon me the Awesome Blog Award. I feel so honored -- She is too sweet :)

First, to answer a few questions that Steffi has asked:

1. How long have you blogging?

I have been blogging since the Summer of 2005. I used to have a blog as "whiteorchid", but eventually grew out of it, and stopped blogging until March of 2011. I'm glad to be back at it, I have met a lot of wonderful people so far.

2. How did you get into blogging?

I started blogging as a way to share my photography and poetry, and then, as I became more comfortable with sharing myself, I started doing self-portraits and writing about myself. I also dabbled a bit with vlogging -- video blog posts.

3. What's important to you at your blog?

I guess the most important thing for me right now with my blog, is sharing a bit of myself and my thoughts with the world. Now that I am a mother, I want to share my experiences and the things that I do in the hopes that another mother will stumble upon what I have written and learn something new.

4. What is your favorite song at the moment?

Right now I am always listening to my son's favourite songs of the moment -- which happen to be The Tummy Song from the new Winnie-the-Pooh movie and September by Earth, Wind & Fire. I enjoy those songs as well, but my favourite song right now has got to be Coldplay's Every Teardrop is a Waterfall. I am madly in love with Coldplay!

And now, to pass it on! Steffi is intending that the blogs to be given this award should be blogs that are not necessarily well known, to share blogs that we enjoy and get them out there a little more. Here are my three choices for the Awesome Blog Award:

1. Lowercase Letters -  Memory is such a fantastic writer. She knows exactly how to suck you in, and she is so wise for her age. I am in love with her blog!

2. Tuckoo and Moo Cow -  Sarah is an absolutely amazing artist and person. She is always sharing how she creates her miniature pieces of artwork, and her thoughts on Etsy, hipsters and everything in between. I love visiting her blog, and she always makes you feel welcome :)

3. Joanne Bee - I first met Joanne through the Cold Hands, Warm Hearts blog swap. I really enjoyed getting to know her, and she always has fun little thoughts and snippets of her life to share.
