First things first. A heartfelt thanks to Coach over at Good Time Stories has graciously nominated me for The Loyal Reader Award! If you haven’t checked out Coach’s blog yet, head on over there! You will surely be inspired and much more! I promise.
Now for the details. I am genuinely grateful when I am nominated for awards. They are fun and a neat way to discover or recognize pretty awesome people. And I thoroughly enjoy reading about each and every one of you pretty awesome people goings on that I have discovered or recognized with awards in the past. I may not be able to visit your pretty awesome blogs every day, but when I don’t, I will and do make a genuine effort to “catch-up” on your pretty awesome posts. So when you get flooded with notifications, that’s just me “catching up”, with you. And I may not always leave a comment, but I do “like” posts. And that means not only do I genuinely “like” them, but I also am offering my support and admiration to whatever it is you pretty awesome people are writing about. And WordPress people?! Lets face it. If your app for iPhone worked half as good as oh, I don’t know Instagram!? I wouldn’t get behind! Just sayin.
I feel a sense of community here on WordPress and similar to my “real life” I love running, but that doesn’t mean I don’t also love reading or talking about things not related to running.
So here’s the thing. I did make a list of pretty awesome people who I consider loyal readers. It’s taken me nearly a week to compile. Coach is on that list of course. As are many other of you pretty awesome people reading this post right now. So guess what? I think each and every one of you pretty awesome people genuinely know, that I know and deeply appreciate who my loyal readers are. Soooo…..after giving it a lot of thought, I just deleted my nearly a week’s worth of links. Crazy right?! Maybe, but I was also getting a little stressed about my list. You see I didn’t want to leave out even one of you pretty awesome people.
So I broke the rules a little. It happens right?! But I still wanted to acknowledge Coach for thinking of and nominating me. Thank you so very much Coach! You have been here since the beginning and you continue to brighten my day(s).
Have you checked out Coach’s blog yet?!
Lastly, I wanted to thank each and every one of you pretty awesome people for supporting, encouraging and inspiring me in this marathon I call life. And I know, that you know, that I know who you are.
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
