I have to say that when I started this blog a few months ago it really was just a way to document and share my family’s travel experiences along with a few of my homemade recipes. There was a point where a light bulb went off and it dawned on me that I could share just about anything in regards to my mundane, everyday life and it would be entertaining. Why? Because it seems like for the Dockerys, there is never a dull moment.
I did enjoy English class and I used to classify myself as a pretty good writer. It does seem however, that if you don’t use it, you lose it because compared to the majority of the blogs that I read on a daily basis, my writing is similar to that of a first grader. I’m sure that I will never make the NY Times best seller list or win a nobel prize but if I can just make one person laugh or smile while they are reading my blog, then it makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something. My blog is also a journal of sorts and I love the fact that I can go back and relive my family’s memories over and over again.
So, the point that I am getting to is that I was uber-excited when I received two blog awards (the Versatile Blogger Award and the Beautiful Lipstick Award) from Lorna of Lorna’s Voice . I really have never given much thought to my blog as being award-worthy! Thank you Lorna, I am truly flattered and because of this, I’m inspired to do some research into how I can be a better blogger. Your blog is one of the first that I started reading when I became a member of the blogging and WordPress communities.
I also thank all of my readers and followers that you choose to come back to my blog time and time again to see what crazy s*** I have to say!
