My First Blog Award!

Last night I found out I was awarded the Liebster Blog Award and, as most of you, I had no idea what I had done to deserve it. Reading about it through the internet, I realized it is granted by the readers to their five favorite blogs; then the receiver must thank the blog who awarded him/her (like I needed a rule to make me thank Lacy for her kindness) and choose the five blogs that'll receive the award from him/her.

I'm ecstatic, I mean, my first award of any kind and given by someone who finds my writing entertaining enough to deserve a special badge. So awesome!

Thanks Lacy, you just made my day. Of course, I'd be dishonoring Lacy Ferris if I were not to point you in her direction. Her blog Inside My Mind is full of great advise, useful info, and just simply entertaining. And I'm not just saying it, do not miss it.

Now, the time has come for me to pay it forward and share with you those blogs that I think are insightful, interesting, and entertaining. My five favorite blogs are:

The Swollen Corpse by Sam Williams

Dreams Galore by Shilpa Mirza

No Vacation From Speculation by Jessica McHugh

Steeped in Books by Georgia Saunders

The Fiction Hole by Jay Taylor

So, in accepting the Liebster Blog Award, the recipient agrees to:

- Thank the person that gave the award and link back to their blog

- Copy and paste the award to your blog

- Reveal the 5 blogs you have chosen to award and let them know by commenting on their blog

- Hope they pay it forward by accepting and awarding it to bloggers they would like to honor

This award is for anyone with under 200 followers. :)

Let's keep the karma flowing guys and congrats to all!

Thanks Gina.I am honored. Seeing your comment this morning was a nice way to start the day. I’ll be paying it forward with a post tonight.

Thank you Gina! That is so nice of you. I wil definitely pay it forward but might take some time as I am so swamped with work. Nevertheless, greatly appreciated!

Lacy: I'm sure you'll find more than you bargained for within these blogs. Enjoy the reading!

Sam: Don't mention it. I really like your blog and showing a little bit of appreciation is the least I can do for such a great job.

Shilpa: I'm happy to hear you're super busy! Hope to read lots more of those great posts of you.

And to Anne: Thanks so much for the warm feelings. Just knowing you keep coming back and derive some sense of entertainment from what you read here is enough to make me happy.

Enjoy your weekend guys!

Hey Georgina, I just saw this. Been immersed in Hendrix the last couple of days as you can probably tell from my status updates. I'll copy the award and post it. Then I'll think about which blogs I would award. This is a great idea. Thanks for thinking of me! ;-)

Don't mention it Georgia, you know I love your blog!
