A Blog With Substance

I have been given the honor of a Blog with Substance Award.

As part of this award I have a couple of things to do:

The guidelines for accepting this award are:

•thank the person who gave you the award.
•sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience in/with five words.
•choose ten other blogs you consider to have substance.

I'd like to thank Magimom for this award and for her very kind and thoughtful comments she leaves for me; they inspire me to keep writing, to keep being honest, to keep being brave. Thanks for being a reader!

5 words? Writing this blog keeps me: brave, fierce, honest, hopeful, empowered.

10 other blogs?


  1. Thanks for spreading the love! I can't wait to write my acceptance post :)

  2. Thanks so much for thinking of me! I will certainly link back to you on my blog and follow the award rules in the next week. Keep up the brave and fierce work!

  3. Kerry, it was an honor to give you this award. You truly do inspire me with your writing, and I for one would be totally upended if you stopped! Your blog, your perspective, and your journey are such an inspiration for anyone dealing with something they feel they cannot over come. You are LIVING proof that you can overcome, and you can succeed! Keep posting - your message is vital to so many!

  4. Thank you for including me on this list. It was very kind of you.

    Please forgive me for not following through with the whole deal. I just don't do the awards thing. I tried it, but it just didn't fit me.

    However, in trying to stay somewhat true to the idea, I have added your blog to the Cool Blogs I Follow list on my main blog. It gets more traffic and has a better chance of bringing someone new to your site. Also, I will be checking out the other blogs you mentioned.

    I really enjoy your blog. I hope you continue for a long time.

  5. Thank you Kerry and congrats!! I can't think of a single blog with more substance than yours. You write in such a moving way. I root and hurt for you at the same time. It's incredibly inspiring.

  6. Thanks Kerry!! I am honoured to be on your list; I'm actually overseas (in australia) and haven't been on my computer so I just got your comment with notice of this... lovely. Hoping you are well. Will get back to some serious bloghopping when I return to NZ... love from Simone

  7. You rock! Thank you SO much!! Sorry it's taken me a bit to swing by, my life has been upside down for a few days and I'm trying to get used to using a Mac instead of a different!

    Thanks again!! :)

  8. Very late on picking up my award!
    Thank you! Will post acceptance soon!!!
    Thank you and nice to meet you.
