My blogging buddy, Virginia, at Small Reflections has generously sent some more awards my way over the past couple of months. It's just now that I'm getting around to posting about them and sending them on to people in my blogroll...Geesh, I'm so lame lately. I don't mean to be, honestly. (Now if I can just get them to fit properly in my side bar...Ugh!)
Virginia will celebrate her first anniversary in the Blogosphere in a couple of weeks, but you'd never know it. She's an old pro already. She passed me up months ago. She's truly amazing with what she has learned in just one year and what she has done with her site. Please go and check it out when you get a chance. This lady has more energy when it comes to blogging than ten of us put together. She's spunky, thoughtful, helpful, funny and is the reason I have most of my awards on my side bar. So thank you sweet Virginia for this new batch of wonderful awards....
The I LOVE YOUR BLOG AWARD is suppose to come with some rules, but Virginia didn't really clarify them. She herself said that she didn't really follow them originally, and you know what?.....I can understand why. This award is a hard one to pick just a select few from my blogroll because I LOVE THEM ALL...or they wouldn't be there in the first place. I love them all for so many different reasons...what I experience from them, what I experience from the writer, the creativity of the writing....they all are so different. So, I'm taking the wimpy way out....and I'm doing what Virginia originally did....I'm sharing this award with everyone on my blogroll. Okay, so I'm a wimp! But I'm a lovable wimp.
(By the way, I understand if some of you are not inclined to put awards on your site.....that's totally up to you individually.)
The INSPIRATION AWARD falls right into the same category....for the very same reasons. I am constantly inspired when I make my visits to your sites. We have so many talented bloggers out there that make pure poetry of the written word. They have made me laugh and cry with their heartwarming stories. They have educated me with wit and friendship....and I am greatful in the process. I feel blessed to have made such strong friendships in this blogging community....you are an inspiration. This award goes to each and every one of you.
The KREATIV BLOGGER AWARD follows suit; and I'd like to present it to all my blogging friends who are creative. Writing, poetry, painting, photography, needlework, cooking, designing....you name it. If you are creative....this award is for you.
1. Only five people allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.
With these rules in mind...I bestow this Million Dollar Friend Award
(from Virginia) on the following friends:
I have one other award, but it wasn't give to me by Virginia....now how did THAT happen!!!! I got it from one of the sweetest ladies I've ever known...even if only in cyberspace....Merle at Merle's Third Try. Thank you so much for thinking of me sweet Merle. I appreciate it very much.
This award is given for Friendship and Loving Generosity. The rules are to pass it on to 8 blogging friends who have brought me laughter, joy and friendship through blogging. OH DEAR....and Merle can't be one of my eight. I don't know if I can choose only 8, but I'll give it a try....
