1 Week – 2 Extremes
As this blog is really devoted to photography, I try to keep my ramblings to a minimum – this post will be an exception to that self imposed rule.
While my week ended not so nicely – the loss of a much loved job due to funding cuts – alas, that’s life in a non-profit – it began in the nicest way imaginable – a nomination for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award from the lovely and irrepressible mamamaitri – Thank you! For true inspiration you need to visit – and follow this blog! I am truly humbled and thankful for the nomination – as I am for every one of my followers.
As the saying goes, One good deed deserves another, so – as per the rules – it is my pleasure to pay it forward and nominate these very inspiring blogs for this award as well – please take a minute to check them out!
Broken Light: A Photography Collective
Oh – the rules of the award also state that I am supposed to share 7 things about myself – um, this goes against the grain, way out of my comfort zone – okay here’s one – I don’t necessarily follow all the rules! But, for those who I’ve nominated – and may wish to nominate others – here’s the drill: (I know, I set a bad example but I should at least follow one of the rules and pass these on)
The rules of this award are:
Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
Display the award on your post.
List the award rules so your nominees will know what to do.
State 7 things about yourself.
Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
Contact your nominees to let them know you have nominated them. Provide a link to your post.
Proudly display the award logo (or buttons) on your blog, whether on your side bar, ABOUT page, or a special page for awards.
Cake for Everyone!
Okay, fact #2 – no, make that 5: I bake – I like icing, and – as you can see – colour, oh and let’s not forget the whole photography thing!
