I am part of an online support group for loss moms who are trying again. I have been a part of this board for almost three years and have seen it go through a lot of ups and downs. Each year, in November/December, the TTCAL Awards are held and everyone votes for who they think should win a certain award.
I won Most Encouraging the first year and I won Best Blog last year. This year, I was hoping for a different award and did some minor campaigning for it. But, I didn't win the award I was hoping for, instead, I won Best Blog again!
At first, I was a tiny bit sad that I had won the same award as last year. But that sadness only lasted about a second because the more I thought about it, the more excited I became.
I won Best Blog because I do have an awesome blog. And it made me feel even better about my blog by the fact that I didn't even campaign for this award, people just know about my blog and love it. So I will proudly wear my newest award and I am delighted that others have recognized the hard work I have put into my blog over the past few years.
Because today, I can honestly say, my blog is awesome.
