Readership Award

Fantastic blogger Celine Jeanjean recently nominated me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. This award recognizes people who support other bloggers by being active readers who make thoughtful comments. Thanks so much, Celine! I feel very honoured to be receiving this award.

Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

One of the things I love the most about blogging is connecting with other bloggers and having great conversations. If I read someone else’s post and I have enjoyed it, I try to comment. It’s hard to find the time to read everyone’s posts and even harder to spend a lot of time on commenting, but it’s been so rewarding for me. It’s allowed me to meet new friends and develop new ideas. And I hope it’s helped other bloggers to feel that they are not alone in this writing universe.

If it weren’t for my readers, there would be no purpose for my writing. So thank you to everyone who has ever read, liked, or commented on my posts.

I’ve posted the full rules for this award at the bottom, which I am following in spirit. I’d like to nominate the following readers for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award:

Lori MacLaughlin, who regularly posts thoughtful and encouraging comments not just to my blog but to many other blogs that I follow. Lori is a class act who completely fits the “team member” focus of this award. Thank you, Lori, for continuously making my day by chatting with me about my posts.

Shelley Sackier, who faithfully reads every single one of my posts and writes wonderfully positive and detailed comments. Shelley, if there were more readers like you, everyone would want to blog every day just to receive those comments. Thank you, Shelley, for always making me laugh.

Melissa Janda, whose supportive and thoughtful comments during my starting months and beyond made me believe that I really can write a blog worth reading. Thank you, Melissa, for encouraging me when I needed it most.

Sonia Lal, who has given me such positive feedback on my posts and has made me realize that yes, other people do get my sense of humour. Thank you, Sonia, for taking the time to let me know that you enjoyed my posts.

Thank you to Celine Jeanjean, who truly deserved this award. I am happy you were nominated for it.

And special thanks to Nicole, Jaso, and TL, who do not have blogs but have supported my blogging by chiming in with their positive comments. I am grateful to all of you.

A great reader is someone who collaborates with the writer to build something even better. Thank you, readers, for helping me on my way.

  1. Sue, you are a true gem of a human being. Your writing always leaves me with a tiny pearl of wisdom that somehow soaks into my writing–and I’m a writer who requires a lot of layering and gravitates toward learning when it’s presented in fresh and inspiring ways. You do that for me.
    You are a teacher and a writer and an incredibly supportive blogger. Congratulations, my friend, for some well-deserved recognition. I hope many others have the opportunity to learn from you and enjoy your words. Don’t stop–now that I’m hooked! You’re part of my continuing education. 🙂


  2. The interaction in the comment sections is what makes blogging so worthwhile, but like you say, it’s impossible to read all posts and always comment. We’d never get anything else done if we did! If only we had more minutes in the day. 🙂


    1. I wish I had the capability to make time stop so that I could catch up! Of course, then I’d probably end up in some episode of The Twilight Zone where I couldn’t get things started again. 😉 I guess all we can do is try our best to be good blog citizens. Thanks for commenting, Carrie!


  3. Oh wow, thank you for the nomination Sue! I’m so honored. You have a stellar blog. Keep writing and we’ll keep reading. So glad to have met you and congratulations on your award!


  4. Wow, Sue, thanks so much for the nomination and the kind words! I love your blog. Your posts always make me laugh and leave me with a smile. And I learn a lot, too. Congrats on your award! You deserve it!


  5. Yes the comments section in blogs is the best part, and it’s just so lovely to connect with others isn’t it!? You definitely really deserve the award, it’s been so lovely getting to chat to you through our respective blogs!


  6. It’s courageous to put yourself out there with a blog. I admire you for that, and for doing it so well and with purpose. Congrats to all, in fact!


  7. Ah… So that’s what rule 5 is… woops. Might have to edit that in later… Well this post explains a lot. I suddenly saw a new gravatar on the blog and had strictly no idea how it got there. I’ve taken a small look at this site, and it looks kinda awesome. I guess we have Celine to thank for our crossing paths. I look forwards to spending time here.


Please join the conversation...I'd love to hear from you!
