First of all, when I started blogging and I was just a fledgling, I saw all kinds of awards being given back and forth and I longed for the day when I would get one of those awards, when I would be part of the group. On the flip side, I’m constantly surprised when someone stumbles on my blog and is interested enough to leave a comment or even actually likes it. This is not my subtle way of getting compliments (though that’s always nice), it’s just that there’s so many better writers out there, and I don’t even consider myself a writer.
Side bar – Actually, I find my writing pretty funny, but I know what I’m thinking, what I mean, and where the inflections go. In fact, Dave called me up a while ago and when he asked what I was doing I said I was re-reading one of my posts and it was pretty stinkin’ funny! I was cracking myself up just reading my own stuff!
I mention all of the above, again, not to elicit compliments, but rather because I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way. Surely there are other people who look at their stats and say, “_____ people visited ME today? Really?”
All of this to say, Melody at Melody’s Reading Cornerhas more than flattered me by bestowing me with the BFF Gold Card Award. What makes this even better is that I LOVE HER BLOG TOO. And it came at a perfect time: when I was knee deep in invitation hell.
Let me just say that Melody’s blog has the cutest polka dot wallpaper. I’m so jealous.
I’m going to pass this award on…I don’t know how many, we’ll just see where this goes. And I’ve done this in alphabetical order so there can be no guessing on who might be my favorite. 😀
Amy from A Park Avenue Princess
Chris from Book-a-Rama
Heather from Book Addiction
J. Scott Savage at Find Your Magic
Lisa from Books on the Brain
Melanie from lit*chick
Natasha from Maw Books Blog
Softdrink from Blonde Momentos
But really, I love you all! I love you, man!
Softdrink even mentioned me for this:
I’m giving this to each and every person who has ever left a comment on my blog. You probably don’t even know how much the comments mean to me, and those comments make my day. Sad, but true.
Go ahead and pass these buttons on to another worthy blogger! And if you do, come back and leave a comment that you’ve done just that. 😀
