My First Award

For today’s blog, I am going to celebrate a great deal of the day. It was a very good day in my personal life with some good news on the home front. Not to mention my geek-out moment with the last blog’s comment section (Scott Sigler’s comment was a wow for me), I have had a very week so far. I am truly becoming a believer in the community that is around me and it has inspired me to move forward. With that said, today, I was nominated for an award: One Lovely Blog Award. The following is the posting pertaining to it.

About I Write Irate

For me, this is a personal exploration into a part of me that has been silent for years. It is an opinion. It is an expression. It is who I am. The revelations will come and the patient reader will enjoy the craft displayed. I offer a challenge: Read this and you will come to understand a voice that speaks to the heart of the issue. It can reveal a compassion that some have left behind. Enjoy.
