And here is where I am supposed to nominate 11 other blogs.
But I have a problem here. I can’t think of 11 other blogs that weren’t aready either nominated for this award or recently nominated for another award. And some blogs have a No Awards policy… so I’m going to take the cue from Little Miss SCB and do what she did when nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award: she invited readers to come up with their own nominations! Brilliant!
So, I’d like to invite anyone who is interested in the Sunshine Award, to tag yourself and post a link of your blog in the comments section below. Or, if you want to bring attention to someone else’s blog, feel free to post that link, too!
