Over the past few months I’ve been most fortunate to receive a number of nominations for this award from some awesome bloggers – thank you.
Rishabh Kumar at Myjoopress who tells us about his slightly introvert and caring world.
Wild at Heart at Wild, Scared, Crazy who is sharing with us her hopes and fears in this uncertain world.
Soumitra at The Pensieve who claims the blog is a haphazard collection of posts that buzzed through their mind.
Now, don’t forget to go and check out these awesome blogs!
Let’s just remind ourselves of the definition of “awesome:”
extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring awe.
However, I suspect that in the case of the award, the word is being used in its informal sense as being:
extremely good; excellent.
High praise indeed!
I only follow Awesome Bloggers. So if I follow you, please consider yourself nominated and answer any 10 questions from the 30 below.
