I have been blessed to connect with so many other bloggers who have inspired hope in me.
On her blog, Becky Green Aaronson gives “a head spinning look at the improbable life my husband and I have shared in the world of art, photography, writing, and parenthood.”
Illustrated with beautiful photographs, Becky writes about art, being a parent, raising money for the fight against cancer, writing, running, stories of her husband’s experiences as an international photojournalist and a multitude of other things.
She is full of optimism and hope, and I read her blog because I know I’m going to learn a little more about the world and be inspired to do my part in making it better.
One of the guidelines for nominees for the HUG Award is to pass it on to others.
Before I started blogging, and when I first began blogging back in November 2011, I started reading several blogs that gave me hope.
I learned that I had more work to do in my own battle with OCD and depression, but I knew that these bloggers would support me in my efforts and provide not only valuable information to me, but hope.
These were the first blogs I read by people who were writing about OCD, and I was amazed by their honesty and their triumphs over obstacles.
They are my nominees for the HUG Award:
Elizabeth of “On My Own.” Elizabeth’s blog is beautiful to look at and beautiful to read. She writes about her life with such warmth and hope, and she is generous in her comments to others.
Ann of “The Beat OCD Blog.” Ann has worked hard in her own battle with OCD, and her stories show others that they can achieve success too.
Sunny of “71 degrees & Sunny: One Christian’s Odyssey through Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.” Sunny writes with a heart turned towards helping others. We started blogging almost the same day.
Lolly of “Lolly’s Hope.” Lolly lives a life of hope and writes about it in a way that inspires others.
Janet of “ocdtalk.” Janet’s son has OCD, and she is working to educate others about the mental disorder.
Karin of “My Journey Thru (& hopefully out of) OCD.” Karin uses her wonderful sense of humor when she writes about her own experiences with OCD.
“Pure O Canuck.” POC has a lot of insight into her own journey with OCD and shares that with her readers.
One Anxious Gal of “Light One Candle.” One Anxious Gal writes with honesty and humor.
Kat of “Keeping in the Sunlight.” Kat has wonderful insight and writes about the practical ways she deals with OCD.
