Mystery Blogger Award — Chroniclers’ Edition

mystery blogger award

The Mystery Blogger Award comes to me from the talented Rob Goldstein — thank you, Rob!  I’m honored and delighted.  If you’re not already following Rob please visit him at Art by Rob Goldstein.


What is the Mystery Blogger Award, you ask?

The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts.  Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates.  They are one of the best out there and they deserve every recognition they get.  This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging and they do it with so much love and passion.
~ The award was created by Okoto Enigma.


Welcome to the Chroniclers’ Edition of the Mystery Blogger Award!

What is the Chroniclers’ Edition of the Mystery Blogger Award?  My nominees accompany, captivate, inspire and motivate by chronicling events in their daily lives.  They’re all different, of course, and they cover a wide range of topics.  Their blogs share:  everyday happenings and significant events; decisions big and small; as well as what makes their worlds turn.  Their chronicles take the form of stories, anecdotes, updates, photos and discussions.  I’m inspired by the sense of connectedness they bring to the blogosphere.


We cannot live only for ourselves.  A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.
~ Herman Melville

  1. Thanks so much for your kindness in nominating Barsetshirediaries for such an award Danica.
    Chroniclers’ Edition of the Mystery Blogger Award is a new one to me I think but for a long time I’ve had to make a decision not to accept awards. I really do appreciate the honour you do me though.

  2. I quite like that conflict resolution technique of understanding the perspectives of others – a little empathy can go a long way.
    And I’m excited to hear about the avocado tree, I hope it’s a bountiful crop this year!

    1. Thanks, Geoff! I’ve found that understanding the perspectives of others is very helpful, in many ways.
      I was surprised when the avocado seeds grew sprouts! So far, they’ve grown to approximately three feet high. I’ve just cut them down to a few inches to encourage new growth. For a couple of days it seemed like a big mistake. Then, new shoots appeared. Pretty amazing. 🙂

    1. You know, I stopped drinking coffee to see what would happen. I was surprised how easy it was to stop — and I loved coffee! I usually had an average of 2 cups per day. It also made me wonder whether coffee has negative effects. Maybe it does, but from my experience it hasn’t seemed detrimental to my health.

      Thanks very much! 🙂
