So, um, yeah. Yesterday, my email inbox alerted me to the fact that one of the bloggers I follow nominated me for a blogging award. I was very surprised by this, but also honored. I do plan on following the “requirements” and making an official acceptance/pay it forward post, but I realized that I wouldn’t even be close to having enough blogs to post recommendations for.
See, I’ve been concentrating so much on getting myself back into the writing thing that I’ve not jumped into reading blogs and following them. I am the sort that, to be completely honest, won’t invest a significant amount of time reading something if it doesn’t grab me fairly quickly. I’ve been this way with books, even by authors I adore, and I’m even more so with blogs. I read through the first two entries I see on a blog and if I cannot connect with the voice of the blogger, no matter how well written, I just move on. Most of us are probably like that. I’m just willing to admit it.
So, for the next few days, I’m going to go poking through the thousands of blogs and find some to follow, and then, I’ll write up my post about the blog award I was so surprised to receive.
