Hello everyone. I am very excited and at the same time so very humbled to announcing that I have been nominated for the WordPress Family Award by John Heatz and 1001-UP.com. What started out a little over 1 year ago as curiosity about blogging and a deep love for my interests and hobbies to actually sit down and start my blog about it really demonstrated to myself that I and all of us can do what we aspire to do. I will admit I procrastinate alot. It’s not easy. I probably have ADD “Attention Deficit Disorder”, so that just makes it all the more harder but it helps when your involved in something you love. I have been thinking about starting another Blog about another interest of mine which is Video editing and VFX so I can also share my projects to others for feedback as well. Yea, just pile more stuff on my already heavy plate. LOL. While I do have a full time job, I just started this week as an intern in a very cool VFX studio here in Midtown Manhattan, so It has been an exciting week for me. Anyway, thats pretty much what’s going on in my life.
If you’re nominated for the award, the following rules must be adhered to:
- The award logo must be displayed on your blog.
- You must link back to the person who nominated you.
- You must nominate ten others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family.
- Your ten nominations should be notified.
so without further ado, I present the 10 WordPress sites I nominate which is rule #2. Rule #1 was putting up the WordPress Family Logo.
Please understand that this list does not go in any special order because I think of all of you as very special. There are thousands of Blogs here that are special in their own way and they all fill a very special need to our community.
