Blogging Award

I’m not sure if you read the comment posted yesterday by Marci Koski, on my post, Striking Balance Through Tadasana? In it, she nominated me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, in the kindest, most generous way. I am sincerely touched by her gesture. Moreover, I am appreciative that she included me in this wonderful group of readers and bloggers. How great is that--to be a part of a team? I gladly accept the award and want to share information on what it is all about, through today’s two posts. Thanks so much Marci, maven of Fuzzy Undertones.

Here are the rules for accepting this award:
  1. The Nominee of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award needs to display the logo on his/her post/page and/or sidebar.
  2. To accept, the Nominee must nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days (1 week) – this can be done at any rate during the week. It can be ALL on one day or a few on one day and a few on another day, as I am doing.
  3. The Nominee is required to name his or her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post or on posts during the 7 day (1 week) period.
  4. The Nominee shall make these rules, or amended rules keeping to the spirit of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, known to each reader s/he nominates.
  5. The Nominee must finish this sentence and place it somewhere in his/her acceptance post: “A great reader is…”

About the lovely readers and writers that I've nominated:

There are blogs that have an impact on your day. You wake up, perhaps during a lunch break or after work, you can’t wait to see what that blogger has posted. You may then mull over what they've said for quite a while. Somehow, they've reached out and through the blogosphere, popping into your life. You don’t want that engagement to end there, so you formulate a written response, in the form of a comment, and post it to their blog. Blogging is a community activity. Blogging doesn't work if you are all alone. As bloggers we are keen on communication, be it written or visual, through music and sound, meditative and poetic thoughts, humor or the arts and crafts.

Note to Award Nominees

Nominees, it’s up to you whether or not you accept this award because yes, there is a bit of busy work involved. It is not my attention to stress you out. Just the opposite, I want you to know that I think very highly of what you’re doing, appreciate your visits to my blog, and want to share you with my readers. It is totally up to you whether or not you want to accept this award and pay it forward to those you want to spotlight on your blog.  No worries, if you don’t want to accept the award—but please do accept my compliments, recognition of your labor of love and its impact on the blogging community! 

Visitors here will notice I've previously nominated some of these people for the Liebster Award.  Still, you can check out their current posts, since all they blog quite frequently. If you've been nominated by me for two separate awards, I guess that action speaks for itself, in terms of how much I appreciate what you’re doing.


  1. Lovely, lovely!!! Congrats, Stephanie - you totally deserve this award. Thank you for accepting! :D

    1. Congrats to you as well! Thanks so much Marci!

  2. Congrats on your award. Readers are awesome, aren't they? Without readers, we'd just be out here talking to ourselves.

    1. I agree with you totally Stephanie and thanks!!

A to Z Challenge: A Month of African Proverbs

I'm all in, once again.  This is my third year of participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. This will be an intense spurt of reading and writing for me, as I'm also editing one book and writing another. I will do my best to stay in, and keep up!

For the month of April (2017) I will be blogging and visiting other blogs. This is a fun and meaningful practice that I've taken on to increase conversations with other readers and bloggers. I am always happy to see newcomers and, whether you comment or not, you are welcome.

A Month of African Proverbs
My 2017 theme is drawn from my soon-to-be released book "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss." I have a section of my book that contains African Proverbs. I will be spending time on each of those proverbs, exploring their meaning and inspiration regarding losing weight or otherwise transforming yourself.

Here is the definition of the word proverb: (from Latin: proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying…

Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss Workshop

Happy to announce that my 6th book has been published by a small publishing house in England called Green Magic Publishing! You can find it here.

It is a very unique book, that has been a long time coming - 14 years actually! When I began writing it my adult children were still living at home and my youngest, who is about to graduate from high school, was little more than a toddler. Time flies but book writing seems to take forever!

The release of, Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss feels like a birth. It has had growing pains, changes and the labor of bringing it into this world - a labor of love.

I'm offering a series of workshops at Life Force Arts Center in Chicago, to kick off the book and get you into its unique type of hands-on healing and transformation work. This first one is inspired by Welsh Goddess Cerrwiden. Following is a description and how you can sign up at Life Force Arts Center.

A to Z Update

My plate is full with demanding, though fun and meaningful, projects. I thought I could participate in the A to Z Blogger's Challenge but can not. This year I'm going to support fellow bloggers from the sidelines during April, visiting your blogs when I can.  I'm in the final stages of editing my soon-to-be-released book, writing my 7th book and preparing for my fall solo exhibition of my art, and that is a very full plate.

I hope to do a good job with what I'm working on and put my passion there. I'm stepping out of the challenge before it begins in order to write, edit and paint.

See you all on your blogs during the A to Z Challenge, and hope to participate again in 2018!
