Uh-huh. Sometimes blogging is as easy as ABC. An idea pops into your head, you sit at the computer, and the words just flow out of you like a prolific fountain.
But at other times, chalk it up to writer’s block or just being plain old unmotivated, nothing’s coming forth. As easy as one, two, three though, there’s an entire world of bloggers to turn to for encouragement.
That why I enjoy my little blogging community. I’ve made some amazing friends and they never cease to inspire and also encourage me with their comments and appreciative thoughts. When one of them remarks how awesome a post is or that it is beautifully written, it just makes my heart glad enough to do a little happy dance.
One of those sweet writer/friends is Dianna at These Days of Mine. Recently, she received a well-deserved honor, the ABC (Awesome Blog Content) Award. She graciously presented this accolade to my blog as well and I couldn’t be more grateful for this lovely tribute.
It’s easy to accept a complimentary tribute…easy as ABC. The acceptance requirement, listing 26 things about yourself in alphabetical order, proved to be a little more difficult, but after a
few …er… many days of mulling this over, I finally thought of descriptive phrases from A to Z to describe little ol’ me.
A – an American alto but I sing our national anthem in soprano.
B – a blogger trying to balance posts that bring stories to life via words against photos that bring words to life. Hopefully, that didn’t boggle your mind!
C – a cat owner of one chubby calico named Callie.
D – a dabbler who finds delight in photography and details, not drama.
E – efficient and effective, an empty nester wishing for more energy.
F – a person of faith, fond of family, friends, and fellowship.
G – genuine and genial and gossip makes me groan.
H – headstrong but helpful and hopeful.
I – an ice cube fanatic as well as an ice water and iced tea drinker.
J – a former journalist who jots down joy.
K – keen on keepsakes but not knick-knacks.
L – a logical list maker and lover of life.
M – the mother of three marrying kids.
N – a nice but not noisy neighbor.
O – an ocean observer who oooos over office products.
P – a Pennsylvanian with ancestors who were peers of William Penn.
Q –interested in quilts, quotes, quaint places, and quirky people.
R – a reader, a rememberer, and a rejoicer.
S – saved by the grace of a sovereign Savior.
T – someone who treasures tranquility and travel.
U – an undeniably grateful uterine cancer survivor.
V – a vertically challenged (short) person who values vacations and the scent of vanilla.
W – warm and welcoming with a bit of a wacky side.
X – eXtra fond of my family and Xmas.
Y – the youngest of three sisters who loves the color yellow.
Z – someone who zooms and zips when she should stick to the speed zone, but only zapped once by the policeman’s radar gun. Zounds! That was an expensive lesson.
And now for the easy as one, two, three part of the award. I must name 10 other worthy bloggers for the ABC Award tribute. My favorite 10 are:
- These Days of Mine
- Homestead Ramblings
- Georgette Sullin’s Blog
- Saturday Evening Porch
- Nikole Hahn’s Journal
- Play 101
- Grace For My Mess
- Montana Outdoors
- Technicolor Day Dreams
- Laura’s Blog
ABC, it’s easy,
Easy as 1, 2, 3
It’s like counting up to three
Or simple as Do, re, mi
Sing a simple melody,
That’s how easy [blogging] love can be!”
