shocked, honored, and gone....

I had a bit of shock last night. I was over at Kailani's place, An Island Life, to read her latest posts, and found her 2008 Bloggy Hoss Awards. She has ten separate categories with many blogs nominated in each. As I was scanning through them, seeing if there was anyone I knew personally - in a bloggy way, I saw my name. I had to take a double take, and then I stared at it to make sure my failing eyesight was seeing what my brain was telling me it saw.

Someone out there nominated me for "nicest personality." Whoever you are... thank you so much. I am greatly honored. I feel like a little fish swimming with the big guys. There are so many good blogs and amazing bloggers out there. I feel like a winner just having my name next to the other nominees. And to me, being nominated for "nicest personality" is the biggest compliment I could ever receive.

If you feel so inclined, you can go here to cast a vote. You have to use her contact form (found at the top of the page) to let her know who you're voting for since the voting boxes have a glitch. You can vote for one blog/blogger in each category until June 12th.

On another note... I know not much blog visiting gets done on weekends, but Susan, of Penless Writer, has started a conversation on being authentic and vulnerable in which I posted [over the weekend] my thoughts on the subject. I think this is a subject worth reflecting on and sharing thoughts and ideas. I encourage you to scroll down to my previous post and visit Susan as she continues the conversation.

And one last note... tomorrow I leave for California for a week. The main reason is to attend my niece's graduation, but since that's where all my family lives, I'll also be doing a lot of visiting. I'll be traveling alone and am really looking forward to my time out there. I may not be around as much during the next week but I'm sure I'll find time here and there to write a post or two.
