Yesterday I broke one of my blogging rules, the one about not accepting blogger awards. I invented it a while ago when I didn’t know many other bloggers and had ‘used them all up’ by nominating them for the Liebster Award.
I know and appreciate a few more people now. Scores more, in fact, so when Steve Smy nominated me for the Inner Peace Award, I graciously accepted. Given my recent (and ongoing) setback, being plunged back into editing when I thought it was all behind me, I feel I could do with a bit of inner peace. Thanks Steve!
The beauty of this award is that the only conditions are that I say nice things about the nominees. There are no questions to answer, or questionnaires to think up.
First of all I’d like to say something nice about Steve, who is an enthusiastic follower, commenter and can always be counted on for support and encouragement. Have a look at his blog Imagineer-ing to see what he’s all about.
To pass on the Inner Peace Award, I have chosen fifteen bloggers who share some of Steve’s qualities.Fifteen isn’t enough; I could think of dozens of candidates, but I’ve already increased the number from eleven, so the rest of you will have to wait until I get nominated for something else!
The lucky winners can pass on the award or not. It takes time, and that’s something nobody has to spare. Please look at their blogs though, they are all worth a few minutes of anybody’s time.

All of these bloggers feel like friends. There are lots more I could have chosen, but I’ve had to stop at fifteen. All of them have blogs that are worth reading, but essentially, they are just nice people. Thanks for being there.
