Yet Another Surprising Honour!

I am proud to say my humble blog has been nominated for another award. The Versatile Blogger Award was shared with me by “From the Kitchen of Eloise“, a great resource for numerous recipes and food inspirations. I thank her very much for the nomination and her comments on my blog.

I am so thrilled that more and more readers are finding my blog interesting. I am trying to keep the posts entertaining and appealing. I really enjoy sharing the little pleasures and activities of my life with my online community of friends from all over the world and I also love reading their contributions.

One of the reasons I started this blog was to share with readers and learn from them about balancing family life and work. I also wanted to discuss my passions. Since starting I have learnt so much more about my favourite crafting hobbies (quilting and knitting) and challenged myself in the kitchen (especially when baking) all because I have been so inspired by my fellow bloggers and their endeavors. I also love love love the fact that I  now have a picture library of all my creations (be it food or crafts) and people are interested enough to read about them.

I am so happy I took the plunge and started The Modern Home Economist (I was apprehensive because I have always steered clear of virtual communication, not having a Facebook, My Space or Twitter account). I really like sharing my little world with you and hope to keep you interested in reading…

The rules for the award are as follows:

  3. I was married on Friday the 13th and did not have anything go wrong – lucky me!
