Crazy Traffic Stats and Blogger Recognition Award

Tuesday morning two very insane things happened. First I woke up at 5:00am to the most insane traffic stats my blog has ever seen.

Second I awoke to a comment notifying me that Timelesswheel had nominated me for a Blogger Recognition Award. Maybe I should wake up at 5am more often because apparently I wake up to good news when that happens. Regardless I would like to nominate the following people for the award (it is not 15 as is suggested by Edge of Night because I wanted to carefully select people I thought had blogs above and beyond being deserving of this award).


We Are New Romantics – One of my best friends both on and off the internet and one of the people who pushed me to start blogging in the first place

Twenty-Something & Trying – A great story teller and an honest account of adulthood and postgrad life

A Narcissist Writes Letters, To Himself – Poems, short stories, humor

Finding My Inner Zen – Dating and relationships, if you like my Tinder Series you will love hers

Mercy & Grand – Dating, relationships, and life as a nontraditional college student


I started my blog in December of 2015 at the encouragement of two of my closest friends. One of my friends suggested in November I start writing as a way to separate my emotions from my stress and help balance my life, another friend suggested I turn that writing into a blog. When I started writing I had no idea what kind of a rollercoaster lay ahead of me that blogging would eventually guide me through (the diagnosis of a brain tumor at the age of 22). If you are even considering the thought of blogging give it a try, because I am constantly amazed at the ways it has changed my life.
