Blogger Recognition Award


Thank you!

This is my very first nomination for Blogger Recognition Award. I would like to thank Yoshida – san, Japan Insider. I just started my blog and I am very new, so I feel immensely honored to be nominated for this award. Yoshida –san, THANK YOU! ARIGATOU!

I also would like to give thanks to Bonsai –san. She was my very first subscriber, and it was hugely encouraging for me to keep writing my blog.  Bonsai –san, I really thank you for coming along at just the right time!

When one is nominated, they should pass on the honor and follow these instructions:

  1. First, thank the blogger who nominated you and of course provide a link to their blog.
  2. Reveal your award in a post on your blog.
  3. Provide a short synopsis on why you started blogging.
  4. Offer two pieces of advice to bloggers just starting out.
  5. Share 15 other bloggers whose work you admire and nominate them.
  6. Note each blog and inform them of you nomination, giving the link to your nomination post.

Why Did I Start my Blog?

I have another blog in Japanese on a Japanese blog site, and I have been posting about Christianity and my commentary in Japanese. Since English is my second language and I am not good at English, I was hesitant to start an English blog. However, I really wanted to share how I was saved in the land which is the “graveyard for missionaries” in Japan by God’s grace. I also wanted to share about Christianity in Japan.

The Blogs Which I Would Like to Nominate for This Award:

Seeking His Light — A lot of Scripture passages and encouragement through God’s Words.

27 Crosses — Very informative for Sunday school teachers. Future missionaries to Czech Republic.

The Reformed Alliance — Explains about modern philosophies and theology through a Reformed perspective.

Kumquat Absurdium  — Great writer. She observes and puts things into words artfully.

Moshi, moshi — Missionaries’ blog in Japan.

Rie’s Bento & Cooking  — Rie creates yummy Japanese food. Whenever I visit her blog, I get hungry and really miss good Japanese food!

Lost Cynic in Japan  — Yorkshireman is an English teacher in Japan. His beautiful photos show an ordinary Japanese lifestyle in a way that makes people want to go to Japan!

Jules Verne Times Two  — World travelers. I love their beautiful photos.

H.M.E. Photography  – Glorious, stunning photography! Wide-ranging subjects; art and quotes and more.

Thank you! Arigatou!
