Curtis of Iridiumeye has nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. His tag line is
“Reviewing the best movies and series you’ve never heard of.” “
In making the nomination, Curtis wrote;
“No, I’m not talking about the Warrior Princess. I’m talking about the owner of We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident. She’s been amazing these past few years and has been encouraging to me even when I would be open about some of my moments where I felt bad. Xena makes posts about current events, some autobiographical posts, political situations, and does multiple posts upholding anti-racism.”

This means so much to me because I’ve not been able to get around to all the blogs I follow, much less participate in a manner that I used to and enjoyed. It is inspiring to know that I’m still considered a blogging chum.
The Blogging Chums Award is given to particularly brilliant bloggers who are really providing something special to the community, either through their writing or the way they engage with other people: they’re just brilliant! Read the rest of this entry
