Blessed To Be WordPress!

ImageI first started officially blogging in 2009, but I didn’t feel like part of a blogging community until I switched to WordPress.  It will be two years at the end of this month, and I have met so many wonderful people.

The Valor Society – By Geraldine and Especially Made were kind enough to nominate me for The WordPress Family Award.  I have been so blessed by their love for Jesus; their humble, transparent hearts; and their encouragement to me.  Thank you, ladies, for considering me a part of your blogging family!

I wish I could nominate one of my dear friends and fellow blogger, who has been a great encouragement to me, but my friend and published author, George Shuman, is not yet a part of the WordPress family.  I’m working on him though.  (^_~)

Here are my nominees:

A New Creation Too
Deep and Wonderful Thoughts
Fragrant Grace
God Is Green
Heavenly Raindrops
Jon Lilley
Morning Story and Dilbert
Unshakable Hope
Word (((HUGS)))
Working For Christ

If you choose to pass on this award, here are the rules:
1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them.
5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people that have taken you as a friend, and spread the love.

Thank you to everyone, bloggers and non-bloggers, who have ‘Liked’, commented, and followed me.  I am truly honored and blessed by your encouragement and support!

    Congratulations my friend! You are such an encouragement to my heart and an inspiration as a fellow blogger! Keep up the good work and God bless you!

    I had a wordpress (free) site until they lost me. Tried to access my account and they said they didn’t know who I am. Somewhere in cyberspace I have a year and half worth of posts floating around lost. Tried to email the head guy but never heard back from him. Fortunately I had printed and sent them to my mother-in-law (no internet) and she still had them when I asked recently so they are not completely lost. For now, I’ll stick with Blogger.

      Oh no, Bessie! I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had a bad experience, but I’m glad your mother-in-law had copies! I compose all of my blog posts in a word processing document, so I have copies, although I just barely accidentally saved over one of them, so I need to re-do it lest I become lost, too!

    Congrats, Rene–I love your blog, and I love WordPress.

    I am so blessed to have met some very encouraging people in the WordPress community. I am continually thankful for those who read and dialogue together all over the blogs I follow (and mine). It’s so unique, and I grow in lots of different ways.

    Thank you for sharing this award with me! You are so kind!
