While browsing around on one of my favorites blogs, AdSense Tracker, I was suddenly taken aback by one of her posts dated September 30th, where she mentions having received the prestigious blogger award called “Break Out Blogger”. I felt so proud of her receiving this award (as she definitely deserves it) that I was anxious to finish reading her post so I could comment and congratulate her. But then, towards the end of the post, she mentions a couple of blogs that she was bestowing the award to, and guess who she included?! Yep, Telling It Like It Is! How cool is that?! I actually did a double-take and read the sentence again just to be sure (can’t let my head get too swollen you see), but sure enough, I understood right. Wow!
The Break Out Blogger award was developed by Bob of Bobbarama and is described by him this way:
This award casts a spotlight on bloggers who are just beginning to draw lots of attention — the equivalent of a song with a bullet on Billboard’s Top 100 chart. Lotsa good posts. Lotsa good buzz. These bloggers are going places in a hurry.
I’m utterly speechless, I don’t know what to say. I’ve seen various awards posted on really good blogs and only thought to myself “maybe one day that’ll be you”. I’m truly honored. I believe I have a long way to go before I could possibly feel deserving, but I will accept this award with much appreciation to my readers for your continued support.
Part of the responsibility of receiving this award is passing it along to a couple of deserving blogs that meet the criteria above.
