Question to fellow bloggers: Is it too soon?

3ox9vw

I had someone ask me the other day, if my blog had it’s own Facebook page and Twitter account yet. My first thought was: “Really? Should I have one of those already?!”

Then I started to think. I really do want to grow my blog, and I wonder if this would be a good way to do so…
What do you all think? Is it too soon to be worrying about such things, or is it the norm and I’m falling behind with the times?

Do you all have Facebook pages and Twitter accounts for your blog? Would anyone of you even bother following or liking either of those pages if I created one?
Just doing some “market research” if you would. 🙂

Wonderful Team Membership Award

I’m FINALLY getting around to saying a huge thank you to scottishmomus for nominating me for this lovely award! She’s a lovely woman, who writes beautiful poetic posts, and I truly enjoy reading them – though I secretly don’t know whether to thank her, or smack her for assigning me the homework that goes along with it. 😉

In all seriousness, if you love creative writing, and illustrative descriptions, you’ll love her posts. Check her out! http://scottishmomus.wordpress.com/

As much as I am humbled, grateful, and shocked by award nominations (which in turn means people are actually reading my blog), I would be lying if I said that it didn’t inflate my ego a little bit. I mean hey, who doesn’t like acknowledgement? It still seems so crazy to me that I’ve been at this less than a month, and have over 100 followers. Either I’m doing alright at this, or you’re all a little nuts! 😉

So I’m left with homework, which include forwarding on this nomination to other bloggers who I enjoy reading. (Sorry to those I nominate – I’m passing along the homework to you! hehe).

I find it so hard to think of only a small amount of blogs. I hate feeling like I exclude people whose blogs I really enjoy reading. The picking and choosing is so difficult! I hope you enjoy my choices, and get a few good reads out of it! 🙂

There you have it!
I hope I’ve followed the homework correctly, because while I may look like I know what I’m doing, it’s all a facade.

WordPress Family Award.

Another award? Really? I hope people don’t soon clue in to the fact that I’m an imposter. An imposter who pretends she knows what she’s doing and what she’s talking about, but really has no sweet clue.

I started this blog as a way to get back into writing. Just a small little place to vent, share my inflated opinions, and have a laugh. I never imagined that anyone (let alone so many!) would actually read it or follow it. But in the less than 4 weeks I’ve been doing this, I already have made what I would call, for less of better terminology, friends. Little blogging friends/family. Strange how this works. How your words can help you form connections with people.

Which is why this award means a lot. The lovely Miss Fanny P, the namesake of The Adventures of Fanny P ( http://missfannyp.wordpress.com/ ) nominated me for this award. She’s honest, true, and spills her heart about things we can all relate to – family, and the love of our kids. Please go check out her blog. I’ve enjoyed following her the short time I’ve been a part of this community.

Though I must say, it alludes me as to why I was nominated. She so kindheartedly explained that she nominated people who left comments on a certain post that left her feeling warm, supported, and loved. A kind comment, I did leave. But should we not all be kind to one another all the time? While I certainly appreciate (and accept) the nomination, I would hope that such kindness is the norm and doesn’t require recognition.

So to pass this one along. The award speaks of family, and I can think of two blogs in particular that are all about family – he ups and downs, the challenges, the hilarity, etc. I hope that these two bloggers will accept, and can’t wait to keep reading all about them.

http://lynncollins10.wordpress.com/  – This lady is honest to a fault, just like me, about all aspects of her life. She’s got opinions, she’s got challenges, she’s got a real life that is nice to read about.

http://modernmanofthecloth.com/  – From what I’ve read so far, super Dad would be an understatement. His topics are varied, and wonderful. Give him a peek!

Thanks so much again.
I have to figure out what to do with these things. Where do you guys put these awards? I’m such a newbie, I never put thought into this.
