Over the last few months the Blog section of the forum has grown and developed far beyond what it began life as. The IVA forum has been honoured to reward those of you who blog with small gifts in appreciation of your amazing detailed accounts of your individual journeys.
To reflect this growing community of bloggers there is a change: A "GOLD" award to the blogger that inspires the reader with their honesty and determination and the
"I WILL SURVIVE " award to the blogger who is hanging on in there.!!!
......Once more it has been fantastic to read all the updates....I have to say it is much better than Telly.!!! One of the amazing side benefits of this forum is the way in which we all seem to become interwoven into the fabric of each others lives.
Yes ...it is primarily a Debt Forum but we all know that debt isnt a "thing apart" it is tangled up in every aspect of our daily lives. You just need to check out Skippy 13s blog about her fear about losing her mum....Viki W's blog announcing to us all that she is pregnant......Mrs Skints blog about her pride in her daughter and Kallis3 about her weight loss surgery....I feel honoured to be allowed to "look in the window of other peoples lives."
SO...GOLD award goes to......TORI and her blog.."A SECOND CHANCE
..this is a blow by blow description of the ensnaring power of debt...it starts so small and managable and then over the years ....BOOM...we cant breathe....as I read this blog I am hoping that many new forum people will read it and be able to identify with Tori and ask for help.....well done Tori and enjoy your vouchers.....
The "I WILL SURVIVE " award goes to ....SWANSGIRL and her
blog......"HUBBY HAS DEBTS"
We have all been following Swansgirl on her journey from IVA into what now looks like BR....nailbiting stuff...it seems at times she has taken on the entire IVA world as she has tried again and again to offer a sensible solution ......I have been moved to tears by her open-ness and feel she deserves this award over and over again.!!!!
