The Very Inspiring Blogger Awards – Week 2

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Recently, I had the honor of receiving the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from Cathy.

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 (more or less) 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!

To celebrate, over the course of the next few months, I will be selecting Friends Of The Week from a wide spectrum of categories and passing this award to them!

Cats In Tutus

Last week, we nominated our First Recipient of the Very Inspiring Blogger Award – Janet from The Cat On My Head!

Janet was so excited, she shared her delight in a special post entitled
Cats In Tutus – A Surprise Honor!

Now it’s time to discover who our Second Recipient of the Very Inspiring Blogger Award will be – and introduce you to our latest Friend Of The Week!

Friend Of The Week & Inspiring Blogger – Deborah Davis

Deborah Davis

Are you interested in living a healthier, greener, more natural life?
Do you strive to look your best – feel your best – and be your best self?
Is making healthier, more informed choices for your family important to you?

If so, you are going to want to add Deborah Davis to your friend list!

Deborah is the creator of Urban Naturale – a “vibrant conscious lifestyle magazine” that helps us to explore the everyday challenges we face and the choices we make as we strive to lead healthy, natural lives.

Her blog explores a wide range of topics, including healthy recipes – health and wellness tips – ideas for creative living – and more!

Urban Natural Plant Based Potluck Party

Although Deborah specializes in helping those in an urban environment live a more natural lifestyle, her blog is varied enough to interest readers from all backgrounds.

A good place to connect with Deborah, if you are interested in finding or sharing healthy recipes, is the Plant Based Pot Luck Party!

Be sure to visit Deborah 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!

  9. Mary Denman says:

    Hi Ramona!

    Thanks so much for the mention from Magellan on The Opinionated Pussy Cat! 🙂 That was such a wonderful surprise!

    Magellan will be a great reporter!

    I hope you have a good weekend!


    • You’re welcome Mary – that Magellan is FULL of surprises!
      He was a bit of a rascal today though – he tried to saunter out the front door as I was coming back from a mail run!
      Well, my adrenaline kicked into high gear and I dived and grabbed him (rescue mission successful) but – in the process – ended up on the ground and smashed my left knee cap (where there was NO carpet, of course!)
      Someone has a touch of Spring Fever…

      • Mary Denman says:

        I understand! My rescue kitties were outside cats to start with. They are interested in heading out, but I’m not letting them. Lady followed me out once. She just stayed right by my heel and I didn’t notice till we were in my garage!

        Sorry you hurt your knee! That’s no fun at all!

  10. Nikita says:
