This post was suppose to go into publishing about a month ago, but the misfortune of losing my wallet and then the fortune of finding my wallet and everything that happened to me afterwords distracted me of posting this piece. Now a little too late I am finally doing what was supposed to be done a long time ago.
Last month was a pretty busy week for me not just at my blogging world but also in my work world. I’ve reached my own little milestone, I’ve blogged for a year and I wrote about it here. At work I had to get ready for another amazing opportunity – another jewelry and watch show, this time its in Las Vegas, and even thou I’ve been there like a 1000 times it still so very exciting to see what sin city has to offer year after year,after year.
I also knew that I needed to stay focused, I made a commitment to blog once a week and so far I did not break the chain of my posts. So I decided that no matter what, I will write post while in Vegas. I made sure that nothing will disturb me from keeping this promise to myself, not 4 hours of listening to Gogol Bordello on a plane, not the Las Vegas lights, not the sound of the gambling machines not even my work, I was determine to write, and luckily I had a very good topic to write about it.
As I mentioned before last year was my blogging anniversary and right after I was presented with the virtual blogging award by my fellow blogger Olga from self-expressions. Right here she explains what the award means, so I will not go into details. What I would like to do is to write how excited and honored I am by this award. I truly believe it’s my first one, so I will wear it proudly.
I also would like to pass it on to other amazing bloggers, who in my opinion are worthy of this more than I.
First and for most: Leah from Leahthoughts, who was the first blogger to encourage me to write more, who always, always leave a comment, no matter what I ramble about.
Then of course Shari Lopatin, from Rogue Writer who’s tips on writing really pushing my buttons.
V.V. Denmans’ blog. If you love to exercise your brain, this blog is for you. She posts very interesting riddles, so far I could not solve any, but I’m not giving up.
Just recently I started to follow Bella from One Sister’s Rant, who I found through Leah’s blog. I just love her style of writing, it’s very cohesive and I am not afraid to say melodic, very easy to read and to enjoy.
Through Bella I found TotsyMae, who is not just a wonderful writer, she is also a very talented artist. If you have a chance go visit her blog and check out her art – it’s amazing.
Another recently found blog through freshly press called Average suburbia. The sense of humor of this lady really speaks to me. I love to wake up to her posts, it creates a very positive morning mood.
So there you have it. I am almost jealous of the people who are going to discover these wonderful writers. I already did, now it’s your turn.
