The Word Press Family Award…I’m IN!

To be honoured with a multiple Award is a bit much but to be also honoured and welcomed to the WordPress Family Award by none other than the creator of said Award, I am just beside myself…thank you, Shaun.  I accept with much pride and I am proud to be part of this community and following your wonderful blog filled with hope, compassion and even entertainment! Please gather around and click on this link to see what I am talking about

Where did this Word Press Family Award start and when?

This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I start this award on the basis that the Word Press family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award. Thank you, Shaun @

Rules: Because every award has rules and I would rather call these a purpose and not rules, as  Shaun says, “to spread the love”. I am pretending to have a Scottish accent when articulating LOVE!!

1. Display the award logo on your blog. – done

2. Link back to the person who nominated you. – doing

3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family – doing

4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them – doing

5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people who have taken you as  a friend, and spread the love

And the nominees are, in no specific order as they are all equally deserving for reaching out to the community of Word Press and having a positive impact on its readers.  Congratulations!

Congratulations and welcome to the Word Press Family!





A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
