I truly never expected to see myself nominated for the MAD Blog Awards 2011 once, let alone in five different categories between Major Love of Film and LLM Calling. Thank you so much to whoever it was who nominated me, I'm thrilled beyond words.
I read the blogs who are nominated in the same categories as me; I recommend them and admire them and am inspired by them. Did I mention that this is a massive honour.
Do you know why I blog?
I started here at LLM Calling because I was learning so much in my ministerial training that I wanted to share it both as a release and in the thought it would be interesting for me to read in the future. Then Major Love of Film blog came about because Rachel wanted to join me blogging and told me to start one for her; I decided age 5 was too young but said we could blog together. The experience of blogging with Rachel has been fantabulous; it's given us our very special mother daughter 'thing' and will be a real life diary of our lives from age 5 onwards.
That's why I blog, for me and for Rachel and for posterity; I have been constantly astounded that people like reading our musings, thank you guys.
