Thank you, Raeyn, for adding my blog to the Bipolar Blogger Network. Please visit the Bipolar Blogger Network and check out their feed of member blogs under the Read Along menu header. What a wonderful way to find and network with other bipolar bloggers!
The Bipolar Blogger Network is the brainchild of a couple of friends bemused by the lack of networking options for those with various flavours of bipolar. We intend for this place to be a hub for all who have an experience to share.
Yesterday I received two awards which I am not accepting. Thank you Kate of FlippyZipFlop.wordpress.com and Tempest Rose of NonsenseShenanigans.com for nominating me. I really do appreciate their support, both in nominating me and in being a part of the mutually supportive mental health blogosphere. Together we help each other, together we educate others, and together we fight stigma. Go check them out, you will not regret it.
Kate of FlippyZipFlop awarded me the Liebster Award, “Because she’s [me!] ALWAYS got something sweet to say.” Thank you, Kate! I love the beginning of Kate’s blog tag line: “I tried being normal and didn’t like it one bit.” Her banner graphic is four hearts with the words: love, peace, hope, dream. Enough said, really, but I’ll say more. She is the single mother of an 11-year-old boy whom she adores. She loves to write, practices Buddhism daily, and loves a very private man (as do I, but it’s a secret).
Kate of FlippyZipFlop then went and nominated Tempest Rose of Nonsense & Shenanigans for the Angel Award for inspiring us 1 blog at a time. Tempest turned around and nominated me for the Angel Award knowing full well that I no longer accept awards. Yesterday was a busy day for Tempest. I lost count of how many awards she accepted and paid forward. It made me dizzy. Tempest keeps me engaged. She is highly intelligent and absolutely hilarious. She doesn’t hold back, and I love her for it.
I am no longer accepting awards, as I’ve decided my time is better spent writing, reading, commenting on posts, and tweeting other people’s content that is worth sharing. Tweeting links to excellent content works well for me for now. Please check out my tweets at http://twitter.com/KittOMalley (@KittOMalley) to find links to other worthwhile content.
I am no longer accepting awards, but I will thank Marie Abanga at marieabanga.com for nominating me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. Marie is a fellow mental health advocate and author of My Unconventional Loves: My Hurts, My Adulteries, My Redemption.
Thank you, Rosh of Rose of Sharon Healing | Herbs and Healing for the Nations at darlynnrosh.wordpress.com, for nominating me for the Lovely Blog Award. Rosh and her husband have made Korea their home for over 10 years. She named her blog after the Rose of Sharon, Korea’s national flower. Her blog is about health and healing, for both people and nations. Her prayer is that the divided Korea will become unified in her lifetime.
Unfortunately, I have hit the award wall and have run out of clever lists of interesting tidbits to share about myself, and now find culling the many blogs I follow to nominate others exhausting. So with this thank you, I may stop accepting awards for this blog.
