My acceptance speech:
WOW I didn't even know I was in the running for this cute little gold bloggie, I would like to thank my friend Jo, who while working for me happened to mention she had a blog. Before that I didn't even know they existed and so from my first tentative steps just searching around cyberspace I got inspired to start my own blog and then a 2nd one. It has been liberating to open up and let my thoughts wander around, landing I know not where. It has been eye opening, finding new blogs to follow and to connect to women I don't know face to face but who I feel like I know by reading their blogs.
I would love to thank the ladies who have taken the time to publicly follow my blog (and those of you who lurk as well), it is a nice surprise to log on one day and find a new face there.
I would also like to thank those of you who take the time to leave comments if something inspires you to do so. Comments are a bloggers life-line, they let you know that someone, somewhere has connected to what you are saying - even if it is to disagree with you.
And so if you are out there lurking - delurk, I would love to meet you. If you are out there and have only just started blogging and would like another follower - let me know, I like to share the love.
A lot of the lovely ladies who I follow have already received a bloggie and so I am choosing only 3 to bestow this award to, however, I choose to keep the right to pass this little man on to some new cyberfriends some time in the future.
Kellyansapansa - a recent find of mine, I love popping over to visit Kelly - I can't wait to see her wedding photos in 9 months time
Pink Patent Mary Janes - this lady's got class, plus she loves Johnny Depp - need I say more
Melissa at SugerCoatIt - one forthright woman - I love visiting to see what she is up to
Thanks once again Donna - you have been an inspiration to me from the start. xxx
