First I would like to extend my apologies for not responding to these awards much sooner. I can now relax..and move on from the self criticism and start blogging again;). I have decided to not follow the rules of each award this time, instead, I decided to include a link from each blog that I enjoyed, and believe you will enjoy as well.

I was listening to the Pandora radio station this morning while driving in to work, a car commercial aired, in which a deep, rich voice announced,”Trophies and awards will lift you up, but they may also hold you down…unless you ask, What’s next?”

After hearing the punchline to this commercial for some automobile I can’t recall, I immediately remembered the article by Jeff Goins I just read in which he discussed the importance of remaining authentic to our voice when blogging..and when to take a break from blogging. When I read the article, I smiled, knowing that the blogs I follow are the exception to his rule. 🙂

I find it ironic that we are (blog) followers of (blog) followers…when in actuality, we are all leaders…we’ve come to lead, to learn, and to grow. I appreciate your contribution, your wit, your humor, your art, your insight, your knowledge, your gifts, your presence. I look forward to sharing and receiving….and so I now must ask, “What’s next?”
