Thank you everyone.
My package arrived in the post yesterday*. I'm now the proud owner of a new Nokia N95 thanks to O2 and a Blog Post of the Month trophy thanks to Mr Mulley.
Well, actually, it's also (and more importantly) thanks to all of you. All of the readers, commenters, bloggers, TFS contributors, friends and opportunities I've had to stick some words down on this screen. I'm perhaps the best example out there of showing that if I can do it, anyone can.
You can be next.
I started blogging only quite recently and the more I do, the more I'm finding that the support and encouragement of those I'm sharing this with are what keeps me going.
Grannymar calls it readybrek for bloggers and she's right (as per usual). Every interaction a blogger get helps them go that bit further, write that bit better, share that bit more and put that extra effort in. We like entertaining our readers. We like hearing from you.
As Grannymar says
If you read a blog post that you feel is worthy, nominate it by blogging about it and linking to it as well as nominating it here. Remember to venture beyond your usual daily diet of blogs. There are many very worthy specialty blogs out there covering music, food, photography, politics, news, crafts, health issues, the Irish language and Technology, among others. While you visit all those blogs don’t forget to say hello and leave a comment.
As I said, if I can do it, anyone can. You can. We look forward to sitting on the winners bench with you :)
* I unfortunately was not there to welcome it, as Grannymar did, as I've been ill. No man flu for me, rather some viral infection that has all but robbed me of any energy and left me extremely fatigued. Comments and posts will be attacked now with vigour. I really do need some ready brek!
