About Kimberly Jo Cooley:

Hi Kimberly, I’ve nominated you for the Inventive Blogger Award. Please follow this link for further details. http://alygeorges.wordpress.com/2014/01/15/the-inventive-blogger-award/ Congratulations! 🙂 I hope you will accept it because you really deserve it.
Wow! I am so very flattered and flying over the moon happy you’ve nominated me. Thank you so much for reading my blog and thinking of me for the nomination. This made me smile wide all day – thank you!! I will accept your nomination :-D.
I’m so glad you liked it and that you accepted it. 🙂 Congratulations!
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the follow of our blog. I never want to take it for granted.
P.S. Next week I’ll be introducing a new blog idea and will be asking for input. I sure would like for you to chime in with what you think.
Thank you! I appreciate your blogs – inspirational to all of us. I will be sure to keep a look out for your blog and will chime in as well. Thanks for taking the time to reach out to me – feels wonderfully like a community around here :-D.
I received an award for blogging and I want to share this one with you. It’s ‘The Inventive Blogger Award’ and I think your blog qualifies as portraying you as an inventive blogger.
The post is in my schedule folder and it will be available this afternoon at 3:30 PM Eastern USA time. So, you can find out more about it and collect the handsome badge at
just a little later on today.
Thanks for support of my blog. I hope you enjoy receiving this award.
P.S. I don’t have any control in Beyonce’s life but if I had a daughter that admires her, I’d be having to tackle the issue of how a woman dresses with my little girl. Looking sexy is something that is valued in our culture and yet acting modest is something that is good sense — I have sons. We’ve had our issues, I can tell you.
Hi Eric, Thank you so much for thinking of me for the Inventive Award Nomination! I’m grateful and elated that you’ve shown my page love – thank you. I will check out your blog and also see how to “claim” my award. It will be my first badge. I enjoy reading your blog – it is inspirational and is just another example of how we are all in alignment with gaining further insight into this amazing life we’re creating. P.S. I hear you on the Beyoncé life. I have two sons, ages sixteen and eleven and a 2 year old daughter – I will have to go with the modesty is the best policy, lol. When she’s grown, she can make her own choices. Thanks Eric! – Kim
I love the name of your blog, BTW. It is so necessary to surround ourselves with positive support! 🙂

Hello Kimberly! I really enjoy your blog and wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. It is a great way to connect bloggers! You can check out more about it below 🙂 Great to “meet” and get to know you! http://romeointeriors.me/2014/03/28/the-liebster-award/
Hi Brianna, thank you so much for the nomination – I really appreciate it! It does seem like a great way to introduce to the world. Thanks for thinking of my little blog, and I am looking forward to answering the questions and nominating others for this cool award. Many thanks, Kim

Hi Kimberly, just want to say THANK YOU for the very inspiring blogger award nomination. Please follow this link to see my acceptance http://alygeorges.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/very-inspiring-blogger-award/ 🙂
Thank you dear Kimberly, my fellow spiritual warrior, for liking my Ode To The Divine Feminine And A Call To Arms! You cannot imagine what a great honor it is for me, and it gives me immense joy!
Praying for you
in gratitude and appreciation
for all that you are and all that you do,
Hi Leon! What a beautiful Being of light and love you are! I thank you for your prayers and kind words, it really means a lot to me. It is kind folks like you that sends me signs that this message I am sharing is being heard. I am praying for you and I am looking forward to getting some spiritual nourishment from your blog. Highest regards, Kim
Your message is being heard loud and clear, precious Kim! People like you are so very important in our rather cold world. I am so glad we found each other. Please take heart and never, ever, feel alone or doubt your purpose in life.
Most people in the Western societies are trained to discard the language of emotion, and then they despair and die miserably. Well, enough is enough with these Protestant “values”! I am a Mediterranean Leo Sun with Scorpio Moon, and I am here to warm you, to show you how appreciated and loved you are as a woman with an uplifting spiritual mission.
My wife Plutonia and I have always been materially deprived, and now even our very survival is seriously threatened with the financial war here in Greece, but I am not telling you this to feel sorry for me at all; I am only saying this for you to feel how immeasurably I appreciate your prayers. I do believe I still have a lot of Love and Light to offer, and I look forward myself to honoring your nourishing presence in my life.
Thank you so much, my dear Kim.
And thank you so much for following, too! I am returning the favor and looking forward to getting to know you better!
Thank you for the follow Kimberley. I have been on WordPress only a short time and have been looking for other “New Thought” bloggers. Any suggestions on others to follow?
Thanks for liking and following my blog and, in so doing,introducing me to yours. I totally agree with your five mission statements!
Hi Mary! I’m blessed to have found your blog – it is so cool to be able to meet other writers through the blogosphere. Thank you for checking out my blog and supporting my five mission statements. Nice meeting you and I’ll see you around :-).
thank you for following my blog! happy that you like it 🙂 what an interesting blog you have ! for sure will be back here 🙂
Hi there! I’m new to blogging, so I appreciate you dropping me a line. I do like your blog and I’m happy that you checked out mine so we could meet. 🙂
Hi Kimberly, we have a lot in common. We both work for an insurance company, we both write at night, we both love the Lord and we both enjoy helping others. Are you my clone? 🙂 I enjoy reading your blog posting and I wanted to say thank you, for reading my blog as well. Stay blessed!
Hi Cheryl~ Thanks for stopping by! Yes, we do have a lot in common! We’re kindred spirits. Our day jobs are at insurance companies, and our passion of writing is done at night (or I guess whenever we can squeeze in time for it ;-)). I think it takes soulful, God loving people like us to help inspire the world to be a loving place. It warmed my heart to read your comment this morning. It is so cool we get to meet people with similar paths in the blogging world. I am going to continue to check out your blog, and thanks for visiting mine. Stay blessed, and I look forward to chatting with you in the future.
Hi Kimberly, I am sharing some appreciation and recognition today
No requirements attached… Peace and joy is all ~ Eric
It takes me forever to get around to all of my friends these days – just letting you know this since it is a change from how I was seeing your blog more regular as you posted. Its great to have more friends; I am at a new place in blogging now with more friends and different time for each… its all new and then its all new in a different way. Blogging is part of me now; so, I’ll adjust and continue as best I am able. Thanks for being here Kimberly. Love ya. ~ Eric
Hi there Eric~
Thank you so much for this very cool award – I am so grateful and delighted to receive it and your friendship. I bet you’re super busy as you have a lot of followers. Do you find it has gotten easier or harder over time to blog? I am still in the new stages and always curious about blogger’s lives and how to juggle everything. I love how you can appreciate the new ways of being with many friends, and still managing to uplift fellow bloggers with your love, light, and wisdom. My love and blessings to you, too! ~, Kim
It isn’t seeming either easier or harder – different – and I like variety. I started this a few years ago at a less publicly known blog site and then I joined a Christian blog four years ago and I added another id on the same platform but it wasn’t the Christian segment; more like this blog, it was diverse and friendly; easy to make connections – easier there because they had discussion forums similar to facebook except the posts were stored like here with an archive navigation system. In a couple of years I had about 150 regular visits from Christians at the Christian segment side and about 100 regular visitors at the main site although there were more than 400 that were connected into my reader list there. That software was more advanced and easier to use to create pages and manage the blogs… both used the same software platform.
Building up a growing following is easy enough.It requires lots of time though. My blog here grows more every month averaging about 60 new follower a month. This past six months I had the greater growth. Before that the average was less than 50 and now it is more than 70. July will be more than 100 if I do what I do the same throughout the month.
Mostly I blog to learn and to be improved by learning.
AsI get to know bloggers, I try to connect with them at wherever they seem to be at if there is something I have inside in common. Some of those connections take more time – the science guys for instance take much longer to get dialog going.
I reblog just about every day now and I have less writing to do. I mostly present what I find now. I write less and publish what I write less often and I push it up in the reader rather than add a new article many times. When some reblogs one, I leave it at that date usually.
People don’t usually red all of my page(s) so I keep most of them short. Some visitors only click like. Some read everything and make a comment. They vary widely.
I try to keep in mind I am here to serve others and remind myself that this is why I learn so much so quickly.
In a comment, I add something usually but I am not so good at that – I am improved greatly is all I can say on that. I do have intuition and I am an empathetic, so that helps. since my focus is becoming more on my following and less on me I am getting much better at encouraging and bringing joy to others.
You don’t need me as much as most that I nurture. We nurture each other nicely.
I have enough friends at this level that it makes this fun too. I enjoy seeing that I am right sometimes like anyone – collaboration is key to raising our vibration. We can raise others more dramatically if they want awareness more than false comfort of what they already have – but they generally don’t get it that its a process.
I always was one to recognize process and value it and I am learning patience to stimulate growth and patiently watch the stages of slow growth.
Your growth is rapid because of lots of reasons and you too are aware of process and you value greatly your growth and thus make more too.
I added facebook recently and I reblog my posts onto facebook. My facebook page isn’t like this blogso much – I use facebook for gaining quicker access to what is being sent my way. There the connections are more rapid. I dreamed using it and it is working similar to my dream. I have just over 500 followers there and I don’t have to visit any of them although I do. I get at least 10-20 links daily of what I need now. So, facebook is really more about me getting information and less about sharing – I share more there though and this is why I get more there too.
If you implement changes, think about the ones that you cherish. That is my only though of restraint that I feel important to pass along.
I value my connections with everyone I came to be able to share love and light in a genuine way and I want not to disconnect by rapid changes.
I need to move to other blogs – we’ll share more I know.
Your words are right on time – I could use some encouragement and wisdom right about now. I’ve recently started re-blogging because it’s nice to share others’ words and to lighten my own writing load. I’ve got so many things going on that is pulling me away from writing – I’m downsizing, as my teen sons have moved in with their dad, I’m working on my novel again, and my three year daughter considers me her playmate, lol. Re-blogging is a blessing and I’m going to continue to incorporate it into my blog.
I’m not surprised your blog is so successful. It draws in Christians, Spiritualists, and Scientists alike. You present your writing and content in a way we can see subjects from all sides of the equation. And, you lift up everyone with your comments and words of encouragement. Blogging is a multifaceted project – you have to put up content, comment on blogs, support other blogs, and remain active in the community – which all takes time and dedication.
I am going to use this comment you’ve shared with me as a reference guide to come back to when I need some blogging encouragement . I can’t wait to put up my shiny, new award you’ve nominated me for and write a special thank you. Thanks so much for the continued love and support – means a lot to me.
wow… I sound pretty good there. Thanks Kim. You are very kind. I am happy to help whenever I can. I enjoy your blog and hope that you find it useful and bringing you growth too as mine is working for me.
