Top 15 Single Mom Blogs of 2014

I love surprises.  Make no doubt about it, this came as a pleasant one.  This Pepperrific blog is part of this list:

I couldn’t be more grateful for this humble recognition.  It’s not everyday people get to notice you, right?  To think that for a while back, I had thoughts of quitting this blog.  Good thing, I didn’t.

Like an actress who has just won a Golden Globe award, I’d like to say thank you to Earnest Parenting for the award. Special thanks go to everybody who has been with me all through my blogging years.  I would never have achieved anything if not for those people who have relentlessly helped me with all the intricacies of blogging.   Now, this is the part where I surreptitiously wipe off a tear from the corner of my eye…

So, if anybody sees me doing cartwheels or suddenly breaking into song, you now know why.

 

Ich Liebe Blog Awards

I’m not one to brag about my accomplishments, not only because they are few and far between, but because I’m not really comfortable having the limelight to myself.   But since I am clothed in the shadows of my blog, I can safely boast that back in college- and I mean waaay baaack!- I used to be at the top of my German class.    But although I aced almost every quiz and exam, I don’t remember ever coming across the word “liebster”- until now.

I am deeply grateful to Taylor of TaylorCares for honoring The Pepperrific Life with the Liebster Blog Award.  I was pleasantly surprised and flattered to have been given this recognition.

Liebster is a German word which means “dearest” or “beloved”, but can also mean “favorite”.  The aim of the Liebster  Blog Award is to draw more attention to blogs with 300 or less followers.

If you happen to be a recipient of this award, you must do the following:

Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them

Share your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog

Post the award on your blog

Hope your recipients pass the award to their 5 favorite blogs to keep the love flowing

So, here are the five bloggers who I wish to present the Liebster Blog Award to:

Anne- Green Eggs and Moms

Tat – Mum in search

Natalie- From Corporate to Domestic

Cari- Bubble Gum on My Shoe

Sie- A Life’s Journey

Versatile Blogger Award

If you could see me now, I am grinning from ear to ear. My cup of gratitude is about to overflow, as I am so wholeheartedly thankful to Mama Mia of Online Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom for giving me this Versatile Blogger Award. A recognition such as this is truly flattering, and makes me want to jump 6 feet up in the air.

Here are the rules which come with the award:
1. Thank and link back to the blogger that awarded you the badge.
2. Share 7 things about you.
3. Award 5 or 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers to let them know about the award.

Here are 7 things you might want to know about me:

  1. I love tokwa / tofu.
  2. More than tofu and anything else, I love my daughter to bits.
  3. Eighties music makes me smile and dance- and when I dance, everyone else smiles.
  4. I play the guitar, and one day hope to be in a band.
  5. I believe that money can buy you happiness…well, to a certain degree
  6. I sometimes don’t think before I speak. This, of course, gets me into trouble.
  7. I speak softly…but I carry a BBBIIIIGGGG stick!

I want to pass on this award to the bloggers behind the following blogs:

Willa- SMART MOMMY
AC- HAPPY HOME WORKING
Jem- EXPERIENCE OF A SUPER MOMMY
Jen- JEN’S JOYFUL LIFE
Eds- WHIMS AND VIEWS
Carlota- DASHING SMILES
