Thank-You For My Second Blogger Award !!

2012 Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpegOn weekends it usually isn’t until late Sunday evening before I can continue posting here on Journey2Kona2019. In late November I discovered that Arnel Gonce had nominated J2K2019 for the 2012 Blog Of The Year Award but I’ve been late in accepting it due to my foot surgery on December 3rd! Because we all struggle to understand our lives I am especially happy to know that something I have written is of use to others!

I came across Arnel’s blog All Things Boys in my quest to better understand the challenges faced by parents who have children on the autism spectrum. Her lighthearted, carry-no-excess-baggage approach to Life, Family and Living Well resonates so much with me, and her photography posts are something I look forward to each week! I think you will find something wonderful at All Things Boys as well !! Thank-you, Arnel !

The ‘rules’ for this award are simple:

1.  Select the blog(s) you think deserve the 2012 Blog of the Year Award

2.  Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3.  Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award –   and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4.  Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5.  You can now also join our Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience

6.  As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

Blogs to Award:

It’s a Wunderful Life – Ray and Jenny Wunder raising “high-functioning” autistic five-year-old twin boys who reveal the deeper meanings of Life to their parents one noisy day at a time! Priceless stories!

    Hi! Stumbled upon this and figured I’d drop a note to say hello and see how things are in your world. I must admit that my blogging is non-existent at this point…I go with the flow of it, and it hasn’t been pulling me lately. Perhaps soon…we’ll see. Best to you – Julianna

    • Thank-you Julianna! It is good to hear from you!
      I miss your posts but I completely understand the feeling of not
      wanting to currently write. Blogging is a creative act and
      as such, like the work of an artist, is subject to scrutiny as well
      as the tides of day-to-day living and emotions! What worked for me
      was to keep a folder on my computer and on the days I DID feel like
      writing I’d stash it in the folder. Once I had 20 or 30 future-posts
      in the folder I recommitted to publishing posts regularly, and on
      those days I wasn’t as inspired then I’d pull a post from that
      folder! I DO miss your posts, Julianna, and hope this period of
      “gestation” and contemplation leads to more writing adventures!
