What do I love most about blogging? Of course, there's the opportunity to write. I love disappearing into my creative world where I can turn ideas into stories. I really enjoy experimenting with words, trying to find the best ones to convey my thoughts. 

I could write my stories just for myself, but blogging allows me to share them, which leads me onto another reason I love blogging: Maybe I enjoy the conversations my stories lead to, even more than the stories themselves. I am always grateful when kind readers stop by and add comments to my posts. We share ideas, encourage each other, laugh... yes, we have lots of laughs.

The comments section has enabled me to get to know a number of bloggers who all add their special touch to my blog. And so maybe the best thing of all about blogging is the friendships I am making.

And one of my blogging friends is Stephanie. 

Today Stephanie awarded me a Leibster Blog Award.

"Liebster is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favorite. The idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to create new connections and bring attention to these wonderful blogs!"

It is always a thrill to find out someone enjoys my stories. I very much appreciate Stephanie choosing my blog as one of her favourites.

Stephanie blogs at Mostly Blue With a Touch of Pink. I love hopping over to Stephanie's blog and sharing her family's life. She takes the time to record all those very special moments that happen when raising three boys and one girl. So many times I smile at something that has happened in Stephanie's day. Thank you for these smiles!

So please visit Stephanie and say hello and share her posts.

Share her posts? Yes, sharing... being able to share with people from all round the world. Yes, that's definitely the best thing of all about blogging.

If anyone would like to share the link to a favourite blog, please comment. Then we can 'create new connections' and discover some 'wonderful blogs'.

  1. Congratulations. Well done and well deserved.

    God bless.

  2. Thank you so much, Sue. You know I'm a big fan of your blog(s). Blogging has allowed for a friendship that otherwise would never have happened, since we live thousands of miles from each other. I am grateful. : )

  3. Thank you, Victor and Stephanie! I am glad to have you both as blogging friends.

  4. Sue- As I started to read this post I felt as though you were speaking for me, your reasons for blogging mirror mine so closely. I love to read your stories and get a little peek into life in your beautiful family. I cannot think of anyone who deserves this award more:)

    Now I am off to check out Stephanie's too.....

  5. Kari,

    Speaking for you too? I like that! I often feel so in tune with you as I read your posts. I really enjoy sharing your stories and your family too.

    Sometimes blogging has its problems but there's a lot of really good moments too!

    I hope you make a new friend when you visit Stephanie's blog.

    Thank you for stopping by!

    I'm so grateful you came back from your blogging break! We are all blessed by your writing on Sue Elvis Writes. Congrats on the award!

  7. Noreen,

    Thank you! Congratulations to you too! I saw that Stephanie awarded you the same award. I love visiting blogs and seeing that my friends have been there before me. We are all part of one friendly circle.
