I was so excited to learn that my little blog was nominated for the Leibster Award by Candin at Becoming Native. She has such a great little blog and lives right in my back door (South Carolina). I have been blogging since January, although not as much as I would like. So much of the available information on the internet is in blogs, I decided I wanted to be a part of that. It also keeps my clients connected to whats's going on with me. It's so cool linking to parties, meeting new people and reading all the fun and lovely things being posted. This is such a wonderful way for new/small bloggers to get a boost of self confidence. I love having the opportunity to nominate other bloggers like me! little blog you've got there.
