For Those that Read:


I get up this morning; eyes half dazed from just waking up make coffee and proceed to twitter first to take care of the events that took place while I was asleep. Then check email and the Blog. I have been nominated for two different awards. I will mention those in a future post.

I am honored to have these awards bestowed upon me. Some may view them as nothing more than chain letters; I can see that especially if one was operating a business and want to maintain that professional look like large corporations do. I respect that.

Here is my opinion on such awards, but first why does one blog:

Some of us may use this platform to rid stress or a hobby and nothing more, some of us may be shy in the real world and this provides a means of speaking ones voice, perhaps some of us are going through hell whether it is depression, (By the way, A Journey with You has a great site about mental illness) cancer or other illness and just need to vent since some of those group session just isn’t enough.. Then there are those that are contemplating to end it all, I have seen a site like that while I was adventuring out to find new blogs to reblog. Maybe, we are promoting a new book or thinking about writing one and we try to get readers opinions first before the ink dries. Some of us may want to get that break, that foot in the door so to speak, whatever you reason be -you blog.

Opinion on awards:

I view them as a fellow Blogger that felt the need to give, a form of saying thank you in a big way or to be recognized for your efforts and giving you that virtual pat on the back. But, more importantly, it is a way to be more social within the Blogosphere to let other know a little bit more of you and vice versa. In time, I do wish that I do get to know some of you better.

I did some searching and when I read this one, there was a keyword that popped out to me, arms, flags waving and whistles sounding off. “Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s unpaid results – often referred to as “natural,” “organic,” or “earned” results.”

What better way to drive traffic to your site.

  1. I love the idea f the awards especially where you answer and then ask questions. I find that especially for people who have been blogging awhile you may have missed bits and they are a great way to find things out.

    I must admit that when I do it I tend to ask my most recent followers or those that I have followed recently
