Blogging is a popular form of communication that has blossomed over the last decade. It is a fun way to pass on personal perspectives, ideas, and information.
I write two blogs, Midwest Mary and Saint Theodora/Mother Theodore Guerin (http://saint-theodora.com). Both were nominated for the Blog of the Year 2012 Award by 8 Kids and A Business (http://8kidsandabusiness.wordpress.com/). These nominations actually are for the first of a six-star award. Thank you very much, Terry, for these nominations.
My intentions for both my blogs is to raise readers’ consciousness and spirit to a more positive and gentler level. Midwest Mary covers a wide range of topics relative to everyday life, particularly in the Midwest. In addition to personal perspectives, I post recipes, product reviews, events, and informative pieces.
The other blog I write is Saint Theodora/Mother Theodore Guerin (http://saint-theodora.com ). Saint Theodora, more commonly known in the U.S. as Saint Mother Theodore, founded St. Mary-of-the-Woods College and the community of the Sisters of Providence in St. Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana. She was a dynamic woman of faith who entrusted her life to God, and in doing so, overcame tremendous obstacles in bringing Christianity and education to the American wilderness in the mid-1800s. Her common sense-no nonsense approach continues to offer us guidance today. Please check out this blog, if you haven’t already done so.
One of the honors of accepting the Blog of the Year Award is the ability to nominate other blogs. There are so many writers who spend countless hours researching and writing as part of their ministry or mission. I nominate two of my favorites:
Sister Anne Flanagan’s Nun Blog http://romans8v29.blogspot.com/. Sister writes interesting and fun posts on the daily readings and life in the Church.
http://jgburdette.wordpress.com/. This is a well-written fabulous blog on history.
Congratulations to both.
