Hi everyone! I hope you had a great Fourth of July! What did you all do?
My husband and I were invited to a BBQ in the park where we got to hang out, eat delicious burgers and watermelon, and meet new friends. It was ridiculously hot and humid the whole time…until the random thunderstorm showed up!
That’s something I’ll have to get used to, now that I’m in the south and no longer in Cali! 🙈
WEGO Health Awards Update
I’ve been trying to get more into video too (slowlyyyy getting over my camera shyness!), so again, here is the video I posted to The Comical Colon’s Instagram in case you’d rather watch than read.
The Comical Colon’s Nomination Categories
I’m very humbled and honored to say that because of you, The Comical Colon has been nominated for FOUR different award categories! 😱
- Best in Show: Blog
- Rookie of the Year
- Best Kept Secret
- Hilarious Patient Leader
I’m so overwhelmed by all of you who reached out to me during this nomination period.
I even got a message from someone I’ve NEVER even met before. He told me how The Comical Colon blog has helped him along his health journey and let me know that he had nominated me.
THAT, my friends, is the silver lining to my chronic illness: hearing from you guys and knowing that The Comical Colon is reaching people and helping people.
THAT is the one goal of The Comical Colon.
Why the WEGO Health Award Prize Would Impact The Comical Colon
Of course, a related goal is to expand my presence within the chronic illness and health communities, which is why I’m SO excited about being nominated for the WEGO Health awards.
The prize is a trip to a ginormous health conference in Las Vegas this October. Attending this conference is a wonderful opportunity for newer brands like The Comical Colon to reach a larger audience and to meet leaders in the health and pharmaceutical industries to make a greater impact.
And thanks to you, The Comical Colon is ONE STEP CLOSER to going to this conference.
The Nomination period is now over, and the Endorsement period has begun. But, like I said in the video and in the Instagram post, I’ll explain how Endorsements work in an upcoming blog post and social media post.
Because I want THIS, right now, to be a post designated to YOU.
I want this to be a giant SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to each of you who nominated The Comical Colon, reached out to me with encouragement, and have supported me at any time throughout my chronic illness journey.
So cheers to my support group. I appreciate you 💜
