Weekend Linky – Attitude of Gratitude

This week I am very honored to receive this award – Attitude of Gratitude from Denise of WAHM-Articles

Denise has helped me a lot in getting me interested in article writing and introducing me to many wonderful people in the blog sphere.

When I began blogging on my own domain in 2008 I was rather new to community building and establishing my online presence. Denise was one of the person that I was following to learn how to network and increase traffic to my site.

I won many great prizes from posting at her forums and taking part in her competitions at WAHM-Articles. I learned about e-book marketing through participating in her “Saving Christmas E-book”.

I have yet to really “explode ” myself online through the launch of my own e-book and really hope to be able to do it by December this year.

I’m still learning as I go along in the blogsphere and have a lot to learn about the in and out of blogging. It is not as easy as it seems and there is still a long path for me to go one to become a successful blogger.


Showing Appreciation- Blogger Style

This morning I was pleasantly surprised to found that I was awarded two awards from fellow Mom bloggers.

The 1st award- Noblesee Oblige was awarded to me by Melissa.

Here’s a breakdown of this award.

4. The Blogger must present the Noblesse Oblige Award in concurrence with the Award conditions.

Maintaining this site has been a learning experience for me.  I’ve met many wonderful bloggers and made lots of new friends. I’ve gain a lot of technical knowledge in regards to tweaking WordPress themes, website designing, setting up and maintaining blogs and websites, newsletters and e-mail marketing.

Besides the technicality learning part. I also grew in maturity as through interacting with others online I gained fresh knowledge in how to improve my parenting skills, how to work more efficiently.  I love been up-to-date with the latest development in the world and be informed about the newest technology and highlighted to the latest health issues/findings via twitter.

I feel that it is important to be able to keep up with the latest news so that I can be in a position to make an informed decision regards matters which will affect my family and my kids in particular.

Through blogging on this website it has given me a clear idea on how I wish to educate my boys and the direction that I will/am taking with them in regards to acadamic, physical, emotional and spiritual development. I do hope that my readers too share my sentiments and that we learn from each other on how to be better parents.

The 2nd award that I received is the Lemonade Award from Sophia she runs the Work-At-Home site which you see on my recommendation list on my sidebar.

“When Life Gives your lemons you make lemonade out of it “

Here’s how the Lemonade Award works:

1. You must link back to the person you received the award from.
2. You have to nominate 10 bloggers who are deserving of this award.

I’m going to do a combination this time by nominating these 10 great bloggers for both these awards at the same time.

  1. Angeline
  2. DomesticGoddess
  3. Shelby(Willow)
  4. Melinda
  5. Cindi
