Little People Can Be Some of the Biggest Inspirations– The Very Inspiring Blogger Award.


All in one day Mama told me that I got the Lovely Blog Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. That is a lot to take in for me—because I don’t really understand recognition. Mama said that being recognized means that someone is letting you know that you are helping them out or doing a good job. I don’t do much—I just smile and laugh—and Mama and Daddy seem to melt. I guess that I am pretty powerful after all if I can do that.

Mama said that this award is pretty special because it means that you are an inspiration. That is a big word, so she had to explain it to me. She told me that it means that you encourage others and that you are a good example for them. I do think that big people should live more like us “little people,” so hopefully I help others to do that, I am already working on doing good in the world.

Melody of “Life’s Daily Dose” nominated me for this award. Her blog is wonderful and we nominated her for a different award today because Mama loves to read her work. Please check her site out at
Here are the “rules.” I am generally a rebel (Mama says that is a word for rule breaker), but I know that sometimes following what you should do is important.

– Display the above logo on your blog
– Provide the link to the person who nominated your blog
– Nominate 15 bloggers who have inspired you
– Inform those bloggers of their nomination and placing links to their blogs

Mama says that there are a lot of diabetic blogs on the list this time for my big sister Addie—because it is always good to have support for T1D. We also love to travel, so we picked a few travel blogs, too, and we love beautiful words and art, so all of the blogs include beauty with words or pictures. Thank you all for making such wonderful work to share with others.

If you do not wish to do a post, no worries. We just wanted to take the time to recognize you all.

Thank you so much again, Melody. ☺

XO, Dorian Dean

About doriandean

My name is Dorian Annabel. At 5-years-old, I have my hands in everything that I can. I want to see, hear, and smell it all. I don't completely understand the Internet and blogging yet, but Mama says it's another way to see and touch the world, so I'm in. Since I'm still a little baby, my Mama and Daddy, Amy and Spenser Dean, are helping me to create this blog. My fingers just don't work quite fast enough yet.

    I want to thank you so very much for considering me as an inspiring blogger. I am so glad that others feel like they can come to Youth of a Nation when life gets tough and brings them down.

    Much love,

      You definitely are– I took about a week to get the blogs that I found most inspiring together. I love your blog. Life can be tough, which is actually why I have the blog that I have. I do the same thing– to try to bring others up– but through the eyes of my little one. It makes it easy in a lot of ways because children are a natural gate to seeing beauty in a world that is easy to overlook otherwise. 🙂 Thank you for responding and thank you again for your wonderful blog.
