I have received my second star for The Blog Of The Year 2013 Award from Ann. It’s such an immense honour to receive another nomination from such a gifted writer. THANK YOU Ann. Her blog, a friend of Jesus2013blog, is a place you can always go for something positive and uplifting. It’s a place you can get encouragement or a good scripture to apply to a particular challenge in life and be able to see things from a different perspective. it’s a place to get the Word of God and encouragement in challenging times.
As is procedure, to accept my star, I need to nominate a few blogs. So here’s my second round of nominees:
Heike says she’s just someone who is trying to live her life to the fullest and stay positive. She writes her blog, just breathe, to always keep herself inspired, and also to share some of her thoughts.
Kim believes we are all capable of greatness; but we can’t have a future if we’re bound by the past. This is why she has a blog, Kim Saeed’s let me reach; hoping her posts can, in some way, instill in others the insight, confidence and courage to believe in themselves enough to live the life they want. She says it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen if one believes. She asks, “Are you going to continue sitting on the sidelines, watching other people LIVE, or are you going to join them?”
If you crave a dose of inspiration, Pat Cegan’s blog, source of inspiration will give you that and more.
Vincent Egoro is a passionate student of life who is committed to inspiring and empowering millions of people all over the world to live their greatest lives, face their fears and grow stronger. He believes that everyone has a seed of greatness deposited in them at birth by God. But this like all seeds, require nurturing and great care for it to express itself. He strives to achieve this goal by sharing the secrets of optimal living and personal development through his blog.
Tric is a stay at home mum from Ireland, who has a passion for writing, among other things. She loves life and all it brings and is fascinated by people; how they think, act, look.
She’s been keeping a private diary for the past 30 years. It has covered her life from the sad and very lonely days immediately after her Dad died, through her engagement, marriage, birth of her children, (not conception) and all the other events of note or not. Now through her blog, my thoughts on a page, she’s gone digital and public. She writes what she thinks and prefers to do so with humour, although sometimes she may write something profound.
Erl is an average girl currently living in the United Arab Emirates, but is born and raised in the Philippines. Erl thinks of herself as a walking and talking contradiction; an accident waiting to happen. She loves to think, or over-think and make up stories in her head that she never finds time to put down on paper. She says she’s shy, and keeps to herself mostly. She’s also a bookworm, a fan girl (woman,) a Korean Drama addict, a sort of foodie, a chef wannabe, a trying hard photographer and a frustrated writer. Personally, I think she’s an amazing writer. Her blog, a mix of anything and everything, is primarily a chronicle of her life; how she feels, what she does/did, her perception of things; something along those lines.
Megan struggles daily with herself. It seems a constant battle just finding the courage to go about another day, in the hope that her anxiety and fears will be minimal at best. She doesn’t know how it began or even if there ever was a beginning. In some ways, she knows that it has always been a part of her. She struggles with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which is no small matter. Through her blog, war in my brain, she shares her experiences.
