My First Blog Award

Greetings PFL!  I didn’t want too much time to pass before I posted on the blog about an incredible experience I was afforded last month.


Kesha Phillips the Editor of We Got Kidz, a Parenting and Lifestyle Guide put together this list of 16 Breakout Women Bloggers of 2013 and she included me in it!!!

PFL Breakout Blogger

I would like to officially thank her for the recognition.  It really makes me feel appreciated when anyone compliments my new blog.  I appreciate her posting on her own personal blog about me & 15 other outstanding women bloggers, some of which happen to be very good blog friends as well.  You can check them out in the post.  Kesha summed me up just as I wish to be perceived in the blog world.  That let’s me know my message is getting across the way I hoped which warms my heart.


I have to give a MAD S/O to her graphic skillz!!!  I was so outdone by this graphic that I made it my new screen saver.

She is very talented.  If you have ever visited her site, you are immediately wowed by the design and trying to figure out what the heck you have going on with your own boring layout, lol.

I expressed in detail my reasons for starting this blog in my first post.  In a nutshell, the theme is…

Live Healthy & Active. Be Prosperous.

I am happy to see results increasing with traffic and connections as days go on.  I have learned so much in such a short time and have met some amazing people virtually.  I’ve connected on levels I never knew could have existed when you think in the mindset of chatting with complete strangers!

I really appreciate my family & friends for hanging in there with me while I get the hang of things in the blog world.  Blogging does take a certain amount of time and they have graciously supported me when I get stuck on the computer.


I’m a Grey’s Anatomy fan and before I started blogging, I remember an episode last season where the female patient was deathly ill in the hospital bed and the Seattle Grace doctors were trying to tell her about her diagnosis.  She was typing away madly on her laptop and her hubs was like…”Oh, sorry…she’s a blogger”.  I was thinking, WTH..Lady you have cancer, lol.

Does anyone remember that episode?

I get it!  It’s addictive!  I have developed a passion for blogging and don’t really see it going anywhere anytime soon.  I’m here to stay folks.  I’m grateful to you bloggers out there who thought it not robbery to share your thoughts with me & keep me in the loop as I figure this blog world out.

Readers who support this blog are amazing.  I appreciate every single comment on this blog, subscriber, social network followers & comments on those social networks, shares, pins, retweets, likes on FB and Google +s.  People who have shared their stories with me in the form of interviews and or in the comments section are jewels for using your personal life to inspire others.

I also appreciate the readers who will never ever comment here but take the time out to send me text messages, emails, FB messages, & that come up to me in person and just start talking about a particular post.  That last one gives me goose bumps.  People have made my day by letting me know they are supporters but not commenters. I love all of them and am VERY appreciative of anyone who takes time out of their week to drop by this blog. I have so many things I’m looking forward to sharing with you in the future.

That’s all folks!  T.G.I.F.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Kesha!

Yours in Healthy, Active, & Prosperous Living,

  2. I used to watch Grey’s Anatomy…Lawd, I don’t need to add another show on my list! I love the graphics in the picture too, if I had 200 emails, I might just cry or delete them all! I love your blog Joi, you are doing a great job for a newbie.

    • I appreciate it Whitney! I was wondering if anyone would catch that, lol. Emails are my migraines…it stays like that. I try to check it 2-3 times a day, but if I miss just one..that happens.

  3. I was really excited to see you and a few other #SITS and #BLM girls on the site a few weeks ago. You are so right, she is extremely talented with the graphics. Your blog is wonderful and I have no doubt that this is probably the first of many awards to come. Happy to be a member of your bloggy circle.

  4. Congrats on your first blogger award! I’m definitely a fan of your blog. I’m so happy I found it several weeks back. Keep up the great work you are doing. I love this blogger world too, especially because we get to meet such amazing people online and beyond. Happy Holidays!

    • pet peeveOST welcome. I just can’t say enough how impressive it is your entire site! It was really thoughtful of you to include my little corner of the web in this list amongst such fabulous women! It definitely didn’t go unnoticed.


    • So sweet Nellie. Thank you, I’m happy to be here and that you and others feel that I have something worth blogging about! I always say it..but you are awesome for always schooling me..more than once if needed #Brooklyn, lol!

    • Thanks Michelle, I enjoy yours as well. Yes, I think that’s the one positive that nobody understands unless they too join this blogging world!


  5. Firstly congratulations! It’s lovely to get recognised for doing something you love. A great post too. It’s so true blogging is addictive! I am terrible when I get something in my head or want to do something on my blog, I have a one track mind. I will definitely check out your blog more to see what health/fitness tips I can pick up.

  6. It’s great that you dedicated a post to thank your readers and supporters. You have been doing an amazing job with this blog and inspiring so many people. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you…” (Jer 29:11).
    Continued blessings my friend.

  7. Congrats! I popped over to the site to see before I read your comment on her graphic and the first thing I thought was “That’s a really cool graphic!” I see why you made it your screen saver.

    Readers are what makes blogging rewarding. Without someone to inspire, confide in, and share your accomplishments and joys with ….well, you’re just talking to yourself. This is why it’s addicting. You get to connect with anyone everywhere and make new virtual friends.

    • Very well stated Carli! Who wants to go through all the hard work of blogging, just to be talking to ourselves!

      Thank you for your support and participation.
