Bloggers are weird. We lay ourselves out on a public platter for the world to see. Sometimes we even wonder why we blog. I have yet to make a dime, and it takes up a lot of time. But– I keep blogging.
Admittedly, sometimes I get really into it. With blogging, the blogger grows, learning along the way, and the reader (hopefully) grows too, while earning advice or even a sense of friendship.
When Daisy, of thestoryofthedaisies.com, nominated me for the Inspirational Blogger Award, I was so surprised. Someone out there is reading my stuff and finds it valuable (the blogger’s ultimate dream!).
In addition to the wonderful honor of being nominated, Daisy introduced me to the other inspiring bloggers she nominated. So, thank you, Daisy! This award is such a wonderful idea.
Here we go!
I nominate the following bloggers and recommend their fabulous blogs:
Nancy Marcus of Marcus Design
Daisy of The Story of The Daisies
Erika Marie of Fashion Chalet
Victoria Smith of SF Girl By Bay
Gail Schmidt of Shabby Cottage Studio
Mel of A Prettier Web
Lisa Bevere of The Gritty Pearl

3. Nominate 5-7 other bloggers you enjoy following.
4. Let them know they have been nominated.

Susan J. Fowler, a former employee of Uber, published a post on her blog revealing numerous counts of sexual harassment and discrimination she experienced while working for the company.

“Make information beautiful” is my favorite infographic design tool’s slogan. Piktochart’s phrase really conveys the core purpose of the infographic. In addition to summarizing information beautifully, the infographic is a place to insert subtle but important messages about the writing process.
