Blogger Awards – Catching Up

Every now and then I receive a nudge from a fellow blogger letting me know that they have included me on a list of blogs they’ve nominated to receive a blogger award. It’s always a thrill to receive one of these nudges, and to know that my little blog has meant something to someone.

But I have a confession to make.

You know how sometimes things just fall between the cracks? Even when they’re important? Well, last year I received several blogger nominations within a few months of each other (back when I was still blogging as Dawn Storey). While at the time I was both excited and moved when I received each and every one of them, and fully intended to post links and fulfill the obligations of the various awards… for whatever reason, I didn’t.

And I am sorry.

This week a nomination for a brand new award reminded me of my negligence, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to remedy the situation by saying a belated (but no less grateful) THANK YOU! to my very kind (and ever so patient!) blogging friends.
