Autoimmune Mama Has Been Nominated for an Award!


Autoimmune Mama has been nominated for a Lovely Blog Award by AshleyM of  the Thyroidasaurus Blog.  As a blogger, sometimes I just think I’m rambling and no one is reading. Either way, it’s helped me get my feelings out, which was the main point of it. But to have my blog nominated for any kind of award is awesome. THANK YOU!!!

The One Lovely Blog Award nominations are chosen by fellow bloggers for those newer and up-and-coming bloggers. The goal is to help give recognition and also to help the new blogger to reach more viewers. It also recognizes blogs that are considered to be “lovely” by the fellow bloggers who choose them. This award recognizes bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with viewers and followers. In order to “accept” the award the nominated blogger must follow several guidelines:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  2. Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post.
  3. Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire and inform the nominees by commenting on their blog.

Seven facts about myself:

  1. I’m a mom of three, who went through hell and back to have my kids.
  2. In the last two years I’ve become somewhat of a crazy cat lady. I adopted a stray, then fostered two kittens, and failed as a foster mom, so I adopted them.
  3. I have worked as a professional editor for 20 years, and I refuse to proofread my blog because I’d get obsessive. I prefer it to be my thoughts without revision (everything against editorial guidelines).
  4. I lost my mom to ovarian cancer at age 14, and it affects me to this day at 42.
  5. I have two kids with dyslexia, and that changed me and put me on a new path in life to help advocate for kids.
  6. ‘m lucky enough to have a job that I love, as well as do freelance editing and writing. It’s been a nice balance, though I”m not getting rich any time soon.
  7. The reason I started my blog was that I felt like no one around me was really understanding what I was going through with my autoimmune disease. It’s been a huge blessing to have connected with people who get it (and put up with my craziness).

And NOW for the 15 bloggers that I admire and think you should check out!! As you will see I’m all over the place with my interests, but most have to do with autoimmune diseases. There are also some special ed and of course, a cat blog. Who doesn’t love a cute cat story!
