The Very Inspiring Blogger Awards – Week 1

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Recently, I had the honor of receiving a Very Inspiring Blogger Award from Cathy at Curious As A Cathy. To celebrate, over the course of the next several weeks, I will be selecting Friends Of The Week in a range of categories and passing this award to them!

If you receive this award, you are encouraged to:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
  • Display the award logo.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers who inspire you and share their links with your readers.
  • Leave a comment on their blogs so they know that they’ve been nominated.
  • Mention three things that have inspired you during the past week.

Feel free to customize these rules to make them work for you!

Are you ready to find out who our first recipient of the Very Inspiring Blogger Award is from Create With Joy?

FNN Roving Correspondent

I asked Magellan – our newly appointed Roving Correspondent for the Feline News Network – to provide me with a list of some of his favorite Cat Blogs and I’ve chosen our first Inspiring Blogger from among their ranks!

So, without further ado, meet Janet Blue – our first Inspiring Blogger and this week’s Friend Of The Week!

Friend Of The Week & Inspiring Blogger – Janet Blue

Janet Blue

Do you love cats and enjoy reading about their humorous antics? Have you ever wondered how card-carrying dog lovers morph into “crazy cat ladies?” Do you enjoy reading blogs that provide you with frequent smiles and rip-roaring laughs?

If so, then you are going to love meeting Janet Blue!

The Cat On My Head

Janet is the blogger behind the delightful blog, The Cat On My Head – aptly named because it’s “dedicated to the mostly comical antics of the eight felines currently residing in the household and their nine predecessors!”

One of my favorite posts from Janet is Oops…She Did It Again!, where her cats write about her worst cat-related blunder to date – and what she did to try to save the day!

Fiona - The Cat On My Head

Fiona says, “Psst – Magellan! Next time your Mom’s in the dog house – tell her you want one of these!”

Be sure to visit Janet and her feline family this week and extend her a warm welcome as our Friend Of The Week, and congratulate her on her Inspiring Blogger Award from Create With Joy!

Take The Happy Challenge!
