Last week I got a lovely surprise. My blog has been nominated for the Expat Blog Awards, run by Expatsblog.com, a site for bloggers from around the world living away from the country of their birth.
The best five blogs from each country will be recognized, and other worthy sites will also be included in their expat blog directory which currently lists almost 900 blogs from around the world.
When I discovered a reader had nominated my blog I was truly flabbergasted. It is lovely to know others appreciate my ramblings, and my efforts to express in words my experiences, feelings and thoughts. I am not alone on this journey I call my American evolution.
I love to write, and until I discovered the joy of blogging, I never shared my words with anyone. To tell you the truth I never even shared my dream of being a writer until recently. But now I have found a platform for my work through this blog and I feel deeply honored by this nomination.
Thank you all for reading my work, commenting, sharing your thoughts and above all for your support. So here is where I need your help.
Judging of these Expat Blog Awards is partially based upon reader feedback and rating of the nominated blogs. Please, please, please, click on this link for my nomination page to add your comment and rate my blog.
Every comment and star will count, so thank you in advance for your vote.
Slán agus beannacht leat!
