Nice Matters

By , August 29, 2007 8:33 pm

Thank you so much to Jenny of Wildwood Cottage for thinking enough of me and my blog to award me a Nice Matters Award! Jenny said some really sweet things and I am truly flattered!

I am very pleased to have this award because I do genuinely believe that “nice matters” in this life. Some days it seems that there is not nearly enough “nice” in the world today, but other days, “nice” seems to abound.

If you haven’t visited Wildwood Cottage yet, please go there. Since we are on the subject of “nice,” I must tell you all that Jenny is one of the nicest bloggers I have come across in my short blogging career. She is someone that I would really like to meet in person.

Wildwood Cottage always has lots of great book suggestions for both children and adults. I also really enjoy reading what Jenny and her 2 1/2 year-old daughter CJ are up to. Jenny finds all kinds of interesting Montessori-style activities for CJ to try. It is fun to see, plus I am taking notes for when my now 20 month-old daughter is old enough to try some of Jenny’s ideas!

Now I get to pass this along to five other “nice” bloggers. This will be hard, not because so few bloggers are nice, but because so many bloggers are nice that almost everyone I can think of has this one already.

However, there are still several bloggers that I would like to pick who do not seem to have this award yet, so I will list them:

Heather of Celtic Mommy (Ramblings of a SAHM) always has a nice comment and her blog is full of great posts about recycling, reusing, educating, crafting, and any thing else that she feels like writing about.

Jules of writes all sorts of interesting, informative, and insightful posts. I enjoy visiting Jules because she always makes me think, and I never know what she will be talking about next. If anyone has a Thinking Blogger Award to give away, please consider!

I also nominate Whymommy of Toddler Planet. Whymommy has always seemed like such a nice person to me. Her blog is fun to read, and her writing is wonderful. Whymommy has recently been diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. If you have never heard of it (as I hadn’t), I strongly urge to read this post of hers. Whymommy once said that she never thought her blog would become a cancer blog, but it has to some extent, since Whymommy is now on a mission (and a successful one at that) to inform the world about IBC.

I must include Wishy the Writer since she is one of my very best real-life friends so I know she is a nice and wonderful person! Wishy hates it when I tag her for memes and such (sorry Wishy!), but hopefully this time she will make an exception. Unfortunately Wishy is on a “blog hiatus” at the moment in order to pursue her “real” writing and her dog agility, both of which she is amazing at!

I would also have chosen Meeyauw, Jenny (who gave this to me), and Nina but I was beaten to it. Thank you anyway, for being “nice” bloggers in my mind.

If anyone that I chose does not wish to acknowledge, display, or pass on this award, I completely understand. I just want you all to know that I enjoy your blogs !

    That’s so nice of you… Thank you! How do these awards work? Btw… I was curious, how many blogs do you tend to post on? I’ve had Andamom up for a few months now and really appreciate the freedom it provides me to write about whatever is on my mind. I have a private journal on LJ — but I never felt like people wanted to hear about my diatribes…and were more interested in my day to day life. So, its has been a change for me … and I feel like I should try to post daily (despite being swamped with work, kids, and other responsibilities).

    I’m so glad that you were pleased with the award! Thank you for all of the lovely things you said- as time goes on, I’m starting to see the point of awards like this. It’s an excuse to tell people how much you enjoy them and their blogs, and the ripple effect is really something to see!

    You are too sweet! I’ll be sure to pass the award on… when I switched over from MySpace, I felt like the new kid on the blog (uumm, block) and just decided to jump in and meet people so-to-speak. I love finding new people to talk with and learn and share with, so thank you!
    Now I’ve gotta get my babe up from his nap… I think my snorting from the Cirque du Soliel Cats woke him up! :-) Heather

    Thank you! How awesome! I’m so happy that you were awarded one — from your writing, I can just tell that we would be good friends in real life too.
