Something completely lovely happened to me this morning. I actually got on Twitter.
Ok . . . that wasn't the lovely part.
I have a Twitter account that has been sorely neglected for a long time . . . people that follow me on there mostly just get an update on new blog posts I write, and every once in a great while I share something completely random. Recently I shared something I had pinned (a first for me, but I should do that more often because I find SO MUCH cool stuff around the webs and it's fun to share). But otherwise . . . I feel like my Twitter followers continue to follow me because a) I don't bother them with too many tweets, or b) they don't remember that they're following me because I don't tweet much and they're not familiar with TwitCleaner. Other explanations include c) they actually like me, and d) they are related to me.
Anyway . . . this post is not about Twitter, but it started with Twitter.
Because it had been a long time since I had spent any time on there, I decided to check my @ mentions . . . in case someone was trying to communicate with me directly (and possibly thought I was a complete turd for never getting back to them). There were a few little surprises that caught my eye, but one that just really made me super curious. This one:
Also - - this happened at the beginning of this month so I'm sure whatever it was I was nominated for did not win . . . or surely I would have heard something about this . . . but nevertheless . . . what was this about?
So I dug around on The Rik Rak Studio's blog and found that 2 different people had nominated my blog for the 2012 Handmade Olympics (wha?!) in the category of "Our Favorite Blog with a Handmaking Focus" (double wha?!)
So, in short (or long, depending on how you're feeling about this post), I'm just completely floored and honored that anyone even thought of my little blog . . . much less would put it up for nomination as their favorite.
Steph and Anissa for giving this very pregnant and very tired mama a bit of lovin' out on the interwebs.
Seriously . . . made my whole morning.
