The Best Follower Award

Posted on

Thank you to Robin, who hosts one of my favorite blogs to read and comment on, for nominating Grandmother Musings for The Best Follower Award.  At Bringing Europe Home, Robin hosts an inspiring challenge entitled: Quotes from the Masters.  I wait with anticipation every week for the newest quote! Feel free to join in on the challenge by visiting BringingEuropeHome.

****************************************************

The Rules of The Best Follower Award are as follows:

1.   Thank the giver, link the page, and add the award to your site.

2.   Answer the question: “Who was my first follower?”

3.   Pass it on to your three Best Followers.

****************************************************

 My first follower was GYA Today, the blog of Paul Mark Sutherland.  According to Paul, GYA stands for “Give Yourself Away.” “GYA today.com” is for people with an interest in learning about, and/or contributing to, the choices and lifestyle associated with growing happiness, tranquility, and abundance by way of helping others.”

Thank you, Paul. You sure made my day as a “baby” blogger by not only liking my post, but by following it, too.  I was so excited to have my first follower!

I would like to pass The Best Follower Award on to my three best followers.  Their honest, intelligent, and warm comments have not only inspired me, but also encouraged me to continue to write daily.  I really appreciate all the support and love I have received from all of my followers.  So without further ado…
