www.leminisdicockerina.blogspot.com) gave me an award! Thank you Caterina. I did not know awards were given so this is such a nice surprise. I've gone to the blog where it originated, (www.arteypico.blogspot.com) and understand what a kind gesture this is. If you have not been to either of these blogs do go and have some fun as I did.
My mini friends, I must explain something to you. I do not follow any blogs. Is that heresy in the blogging community? I don't mean ill will, honestly. Before I started this thing called "1 inch minis" I investigated some mini blogs. I abandoned my idea of a blog. The blogs were all so beautiful, interesting, so many things included. I did not think I could keep something like that up. But my need for sharing got the best me and I jumped in anyway, keeping the blog simple. I didn't even have a digital camera when I started, that's why the first "how-tos" do not have step by step pictures. My son took a photography class and I shared the cost with him to share the camera.
I decided after I started the blog that I would try not to visit any blogs unless there was a specific reason. I didn't want to be influenced, to copy or just to feel I wasn't doing a good job in my blogging.
I have an obligation to full fill in accepting this award, I must award 5 blogs for their creativity and contribution to the blogging community. Would it be cheating if I would ask you to nominate blogs for me. I have reviewed a very few profiles, and I find that you all follow a lot of blogs. This community is such a kind, caring and sharing one. I looked up community and I found "fellowship" listed, this word fits what is here, doesn't it? I've always been a loner, not a joiner, arms length type of person. But I love to teach, just didn't stay in school long enough.
Do you think this would be in the spirit of the award if I would follow the blogs nominated for a while and choose from those? We could keep it confidential if you would like, just use my e-mail.
