Taking the Road Less Traveled

Very Inspiring Blogger Award



I wanted to thank an incredible blogger – for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  When I started blogging I had no idea how much I would learn, and the incredibly talented people/writers/photographers I would discover. It has truly changed my life.  I feel very honored Laura, and…the feeling is mutual!

As a blogger, I find I’m sitting with my squinchy, binding my hair up over my head  as I hover over my keyboard (that’s my friend Carla’s vision – not all of us do this but apparently I do :))  I’m guessing a lot of bloggers think about this, but it does feel fun when you write your blog. However, after you tweak, modify, view, preview and then finally hit “publish”, you think (at least I do) is anyone out there???” Mom? Dad? Carla? Here’s what I’ve actually found – there are a lot of people out there. An incredible amount of creativity, inspiration and support. So what I like about this award is that I actually have the opportunity to highlight and nominate other blogs who inspire me.

So here are two things they’d like me to do if I’m nominated. Tell you a little bit about me (as if you need to know more) and tell you about a few of the bloggers that I love, and would nominate for this award.

A little bit about me –

  1. I believe that bacon is the 5th food group
  2. Champagne is the 6th
  3. “Not” jumping out of an airplane and/or hang gliding are on my bucket list
  4. I use extra Downey in my wash so my clothes smell like it
  5. I add too much cream in my coffee and although I’ve tried to change that I just don’t seem to have the will-power
  6. I believe that boots can be worn year-round
  7. I believe time is the greatest gift you can give anyone

Second, the blogs that inspire me and the ones I would nominate –

  16. I LOVE Canadian Hiking Photography and Patrick Latter’s work but I can only access it through WordPress. Here is the link to his site in case it works for you: (His work is amazing and he was the first person to follow me 😉


There are so many more incredible blogs, these are only a few! Thank you again Laura for this special nomination. xoxox

  3. Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I am not sure where you’re getting your info, but great topic.
    I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
    Thanks for magnificent info I was looking for this information for
    my mission.

  6. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any points for novice blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • Hi there and thanks so much for stopping by! Your first post seems to have disappeared! I think the most important thing is to enjoy the fact that your blog is your own. You can choose what to write about and add your personality into each piece. Mostly have fun and don’t try to get everything perfect. Good luck with your blogging and I will take a moment and check your site out too. Cheers!!!

  7. Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
