BBAW Registration

To borrow Ari’s words (Reading in Color), it does feel awkward to nominate yourself for an award. Oh well.

I registered for Best Blog Appreciation Week in the Cultural Blog category (I had to pick a niche) and New Blog one.

Here are the links I’m providing for the Cultural Blog Category (3 posts must be reviews, recommendation or analysis of a specific title, 2 others are up to the blogger):

  4. As awkward as it may feel, sometimes you just have to put yourself (and your blog) out there. I’m so glad that you believe in what you are doing strongly enough to put it out there!! YAY!

    • Thanks, Heather. To be honest, I think I might be the harshest critic of this blog, though I don’t do it in public. I will improve it one small step at a time. Time is what I’m struggling the most with for now, but it will get better. πŸ™‚
