Unveiling a New Site and Awards: Wow, Happy Friday!

Hi everyone and happy Friday! I hope you are all doing well and made it through the week smoothly (okay, if not smoothly then I hope at least there were calm parts to it). Insert smiles: here!

I am excited today to unveil my new site, also here on WordPress. I have been working on it over the past week, although I have had this idea for several months now. And, of course, the root of it goes back many years for me. You see, it’s a website intended to celebrate women. It is called When Women Inspire. To read the first post there, click the image below.

The new site is titled When Women Inspire

When Women Inspire: What it is

The goal for the site is set out on its About page, along with my reason for starting it. When Women Inspire is a site that I hope encourages women to achieve all that they have the potential to be. And I am fortunate to have met some amazing women in my life so far. Feel free to check out the site and follow it, although I by no means am making you. I understand it won’t appeal to everyone, and that’s fine. After all, if we all liked the same things then the world would be even crazier than it already is!

Awards for Poetic Parfait

Happy to get the Team Member Award

Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

In addition to having excitement about When Women Inspire, I have also been fortunate to be given awards recently. Wow, happy Friday, indeed! The first one is the Team Member Readership Award. The nomination flattered me as it kindly came from awesome blogger Aquileana of La Audacia De Aquiles.

Sookton of Sookton’s Space also explained that I had won the Liebster Award. Woohoo, party time! Thank-you so much. AND, yes there has been a third award too. Thanks to oaswritingspoemspaintings for bestowing Poetic Parfait with a Community of Bloggers Award! So exciting, thanks!

 

New Blogging Award

Community of Bloggers Award

I am feeling loved and appreciated. Of course, I could not do any of this without support and thanks to each and every one of you for cheering me on so much. Big smiles and love!

For the awards, I know there are rules associated with them but I don’t want to pick favorites amongst all of you wonderful writers. Instead, feel free to grab one of the three awards and accept it on your own blog if you like. Really, it is all about encouraging one another with our interests here at WordPress and I am fortunate to have met many wonderful people.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

    Congrats for the beautiful new blog. Great theme and wishing more power to women. The new blog will surely increase the number of women who have already shattered the glass ceiling and heading responsible and powerful positions.
    Best of luck.
