WordPress family creating a splash.

Well yes it’s official! I’m now part of the wonderful WordPress family and I couldn’t be happier!

A couple of weeks ago I received this welcome award from lovely Dawn Hosking and it means a lot to me. Please go over and check out her blog here: http://dawnyhosking.wordpress.com/2013/10/19/we-are-family/

I’ve only been blogging a few short months but I have to say I really enjoy the experience. Dawn has been a wonderful WordPress friend during this time. She is an inspiration. Please do visit her site and read her wonderful words.

Wordpress Family Award

WordPress Family Award

But you are all such a wonderful bunch of helpful, talented, positive and caring people. I’m finding more and more that I just can’t wait to sit down with a nice cup of coffee whenever I can and catch up with all of your latest posts and comments.

Now to be awarded the WordPress Family Award is a wonderful surprise. So thank you very much Dawn.

As you read this, you may be asking yourself where did the idea for this “Part of the WordPress Family Award” first originate. A fabulous man called Shaun created it and this was his rationale for doing so:

 ‘This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side as only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award. Thank you,


What a warm and wonderful award to create and pass on to others we appreciate.

Well here are the award rules.

If you receive this award it means someone really values all the hard work you put into your blog and the kind and considerate thoughts and comments you share with others through the WordPress experience. It means you’ve been identified as someone who is part of the WordPress family.
