Blog of the Year Award??? Come Again?

Blog of the Year Award banner 600

Well, look at that, would you? Imagine my delight when I awoke, loaded my “readers” section and found Eunice over at http://nutsfortreasure.wordpress.com had listed my little blog (among many, many other wonderful recipients) for this award.

Rosa would’ve been so proud, if a bit clueless as to what all the hullabaloo is about.

So, bear with me as I can’t wait to pass this along… and please know, you’ve all meant a great deal to me this year. Thank you for becoming part of my life and I wish you all the best…

To Lynne at http://freepennypress.wordpress.com for her heartfelt posts. What an amazing gift with words you have!

And just to complete Pauline’s state of chaos, as she really must be “chuffing” (I also nominated her for another award just last night) well… here’s to you, my dear cyber-friend, you are far more than ordinary. I’ve loved seeing some of your country through your lens, your knitting and your words. Thanks so much. You can see her at: http://paulineknits.wordpress.com.

to Denise at http://justasiamdenise.wordpress.com for taking on blogging, work, art and life. You are an inspiration – you deserve both awards (yup, passed one along to her last night, too).

to my wonderful poet-friend, Ashi Akira who always responds to my questions about his country, no matter how foolish and adds such beauty to my day with his incredible Haiku poems. Please tell ’em I said “Hi”. He’s at http://ashiakira.wordpress.com/

to Kim over at http://mouthfulofwords.wordpress.com/ because she simply doesn’t have enough to do, what with raising her babies, writing a script about her distant Irish grandfather, publishing a story in an anthology and writing a blog. Whew, that’s a mouthful right there! And now I’ve gone and added yet another task (umhum, she got an award nod last night).

To my sweet new blogger- daughter, Miss Word Bird at http://spiralbindings.wordpress.com/ because… well… just because she’s pushed through writer’s block all year and came out writing one of the most sophisticated and moving novels and I am so proud…

to El over at http://runningfromhellwithel.wordpress.com/ Even though wordpress won’t let me follow her blog, and only lets me comment on random Tuesdays… let’s hope I’ll be able to today…

For all of you and others I’ve only begun to get to know, I want to say “thanks”… for your views, comments and good reads. I no longer live in a vacuum. You’ve rehabilitated a hermit and sent me flying into the 21st century!

My love, always.

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favourite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!
