Flighty Friday: Awardy, Eclipse, and Share Your World

Blog Image Flighty Friday - CanvaSome days I don’t know what to post, on others everything happens at once. The lovely ladyleemanila must have read my recent whining about lack of motivation, because she nominated me for the Creative Blogger’s Award. How’s that for motivation? Yippee! Thank you so much, Ladylee!

Rules, information, and nominees are under the cut.

We had a partial solar eclipse today. First day of spring and solar eclipse, how’s that for special. A few words about that later.

Finally, Share your World Week 11, more of that under the cut, too.

Blogging 101: Dress Up Your Sidebar–OK, here is something for you!

I’m late again. Friday’s assignment: add and/or customize two widgets, one text-based and one image-based. — they give us the weekend off with the option to play with the widgets some more. I’ll use the weekend to follow up on overdue posts. I hope Sunday I’ll get around to posting about my cat. If not, in October. Blogging 101 will have ended by then, sadly, it’s great fun, very enlightening and very inspiring.

I’ve played with widgets already. But! I finally added my treasured ‘Lovely Blog Award’ to the sidebar which the wonderful C-Dog & Company gave to me last month. If you haven’t visited that blog yet, please do so, and read inspiring, amusing, touching, happy, sad, and always thoughtful lovelyawardand thought-provoking stories about pets and people.

I didn’t pass on the award immediately, since I’m still new to the blogosphere and felt shy (don’t all these people with all these fabulous blogs have the award already, what if they don’t want it, what if…)–but Blogging 101 helped me get more bold when contacting all you friendly strangers out there. When I started this blog, I didn’t really think anyone would be interested in my jumbled ramblings, that I’d mostly talk to myself and maybe, some day, find a reader or two. I’m surprised and delighted to see how friendly and welcoming the part of the sphere is that I’ve encountered so far. Blogging 101 has opened up so many venues. It makes me see that many others struggle for words, about what to say, but feel the need to say something–just as I do. And so I don’t feel so shy any longer, because, if you’re at least a bit like me, you love comments from, and interaction with, other bloggers. And so I give out the award I got from C-Dog & Company and hope that it brings you as much joy as it did, me. If you got it already, just pass it on to a newbie blogger you like.
