-thank the person who nominated you

-post the logo in your blog

-create a post in which you tell others why you blog

-spread the love by designating other bloggers as

Encouraging Thunder recipients

Why I blog?

Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns, as the name indicates, is not a single person blog. However, as the primary writer/post-er/blogger, I will answer this question based on my own personal thoughts and feelings…

I blog because I enjoy it. It provides an open line of communication with some of the most awesome and inspiring people on the internet. I can get everything from new recipes to information on the latest and greatest pet shampoo. Bloggers are extremely helpful, gracious and giving. I find it very exciting to open my gmail and see that I have well over 50 new emails-

…and of course I love meeting new folks and helping others meet new folks.

All of that being said— I would like to nominate the following bloggers as Encouraging Thunder recipients:

flimsysoul.com and
