Stylish Blogger Award

posted on: Thursday, January 20

I was recently given the stylish blogger award by the lovely Caryn of Style Bones. A huge thank you to Caryn for thinking of me!! {Be sure to check out her uber stylish blog here!} When I started putting together this post I realized just how much blogging means to me and that it is the little recognitions like this that put a big smile on my face. 

If you are new to the world of blogging, it truly is one big community of supporters. And, I warn you, once you delve in, it gets addicting! I guarantee you'll begin to realize that there are so many bloggers out there who share your passions, obsessions, and dreams. The world of blogging truly is my creative outlet and serves as a source of constant inspiration. Yes, my day job is creative but in my day job I'm ultimately creating things for the client. With my blog I become the client and I get to write about topics and content that I love. Perhaps a little self centered, but when you realize that so many others share your loves you begin to feel as though you belong to something that is much bigger. 

With a full time job, and life in general there are certainly days that I ask myself why I do this. I strive to provide original content and it is no small task keeping it up. But, sharing what I love is exactly why I started this blog in the first place. Hence the name; Rachael Passing Notes. Remember those days back in high school when you simply had to tell your best friend something and it couldn't possibly wait until class was over? You would secretly jot down a note, fold it into a little triangle or square and scribble instructions on each corner. Then you would pass it along row by row until it reached her and wait with excitement and anticipation for her response only to send it back to her again. This was  the premise for starting my blog. Passing notes, sharing my loves and passions with others, and in turn being even more inspired than when I began.

So, while I may have gotten slightly off topic here, this is a prime example of why I love blogging and why I do what I do here on Rachael Passing Notes.

Now, finally onto the Stylish Blogger Award. Here's how it works...
