I am thrilled to have been nominated for the Liebster Award! So thank you The Britchy One! I love a good lifestyle blog and this is lifestyle and MORE!

I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Jo at Working Mom’s Hustle. Thank you so much! Jo’s entertaining site is a lifestyle blog and more! I love a good lifestyle blog, it appeals to the nosy person in me! It made me question the definition of ‘versatile’.

I’ve been nominated for this award twice in the last two weeks!! I’ve been a little slow in responding to the first nomination as work was crazy busy and if I’m completely honest I wanted to have a few more ‘history’ posts on my blog before adding another that I would keep in the ‘blogging’ category.

I have a short attention span and if I see something in the first two or three sentences that I want to correct, I give up. The Community Pool, from what I have seen, is … Continue reading You Asked for a Little Feedback: Here are my Writing Tips
