I would be grateful if you shared this post ❤

One of the important parts of blogger’s etiquette is to visit other blogs, show support and lift them up. As I was going over my list of today’s chores, that leave little or no time for hobbies, I felt that I haven’t been doing a very good job honoring my bloggy friends the way they deserve. They stop in, they comment, they share and I thought to myself, if they can find the time, you must find the time. But the time is what I lack the most.

I know I’m not the only busy person in the world. So I promised myself, I will be more diligent sharing their work and not only visit and run. And just like that, I open my computer to take a break and find out I’ve been nominated for RESPECT award. What timing!


Created by renowned artist Robert Goldstein, this is what he says about his award:

“The “Respect” Award is my personal award for fellow bloggers who consistently reach out to other bloggers, offer support, are kind, struggle to understand differences in people, and who treat themselves and other people with kindness and respect.

You don’t have to do anything for this award.

You can choose to copy the Award Picture and give the award to the people who have earned your respect or you can do nothing.

This is my way of saying thank you. You have earned my respect.”

The award was passed to me by my newly found blogger friend Ann from Grubbs ‘n Critters, an amazing mom that balances her full-time job, her family of four, and blogging in a fast-paced Bangkok life with ease and humor.

Apparently, Ann thinks I’ve been doing a good enough job. I am humbled and honored. I really am!

I am also glad for this award for the reason that I can now pass it to the bloggers I respect. There are many I respect but for now I’m nominating those that regularly visit, comment and pour their love.

They are:

THANK YOU for visiting, commenting, sharing and loving my simple blog. YOU HAVE MY RESPECT!

    Jas, you have moved me to tears!!! I found this post on my feed and said I want to see what Jas has to say about this subject. Because I respect you tremendously and value your opinion. And lo and behold… I encounter a surprise.
    First of all, you deserve this so much! Your blog is one that I come to because I feel a connection. You are a communicator. And secondly, you communicate not only with words but with photos… this is very powerful to me. I want to thank you so much for this award. It means the world to me to receive this from you. I also look at blogging as much more than a business. But I’ll talk more about that in my post about this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      Aw, thank you, Mary! Actually, you are the biggest reason I felt I wasn’t a good bloggy friend. You are always there, liking, commenting and sharing and I know I’m was slacking off in that department. But know that I visit, even if I don’t always comment!!! You deserve this award a 100%! Thank you for being you!
