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.

  1. 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!

    1. 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. 🙂
