It's Nepotism, pure and simple

I'm behind on my blogs, mostly because I went to see my son over the weekend.

Anyway, on Wednesday, I received a blog award:

I know in my mind what "substance" means, but I really needed to look it up anyway. From 2 a : ultimate reality that underlies all outward manifestations and change b : practical importance : meaning, usefulness. When I check the thesaurus on MSWord, I get "matter."

So, my blog has meaning or usefulness or you could say it matters. Well, mostly it matters to me. I'm not real sure how meaningful or useful it is. It's probably useful if you want to know what is going on in my life or how I feel about certain subjects.

Anyway, I haven't received many awards as an adult. Even attempting to receive an award is few and far between. So I am honored and humbled to receive this award, particularly since I have only been blogging since April of this year.

But then again, maybe it's just nepotism, pure and simple since I received the award from my sister.

Now, the hard part. My blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience--in 5 words:


Now, the other hard part: bestowing the award on 5 other bloggers who I feel have blogs of substance (it's hard for me because (1) I don't read that many blogs (2) half of them my sister has already given the award to and (3) I don't read anything that isn't useful or matters or "has substance"...I don't have the time.):

Mocha with Linda
Sweet Tea
Tempo and Speed
Mountain Woman at Heart
Living Brightly


  1. would have gotten it from me if you had not gotten it from Mary. I think you have substance and love reading your blog every day.

  2. Congratulations on your award...I like reading here : )

  3. Nepotism is alive and well in our little town, for sure!
