Fifty Followers and an Award!

Well if this isn't a moment to celebrate... I just hit 50 followers! And I was given my first blog award!!

I am honored, humbled, and grateful that so many of you come here and comment on my posts because, really, that's what makes all of this worthwhile for me.

Many, many thanks to Donna Hole and Quinn for passing the award on to me. (Donna gave it to me the day of my Snarwal creative writing exercise which also lost me a  follower, so thank you Donna!!)  Please stop by their blogs, which are very different but equally terrific to follow.

The rules for this award are simply to acknowledge the giver and to pass it on to 15 blogs that you enjoy reading/have recently discovered.

And now I pass it on to (listed in no particular order)...
  1. Jessica Stanford at Girl, Unpublished
  2. Jen K Blom
  3. Astrid Paramita
  4. Christie Wright Wild at Write Wild
  5. Julie Hedlund at Write Up My Life
  6. Serena at I see you see
  7. Dawn Embers at Its in the Book
  8. Catherine Johnson at Kangaroobee's Blog
  9. Marieke at Marieke's Musings
  10. Madeleine at Scribble and Edit
  11. Lola Sharp at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword
  12. Patricia A. Timms at Simplicity in Volumes
  13. Adina West at Stairways and Landings
  14. Megan K. Bickel at The Write at Home Mom
  15. JEFritz at Still Writing...
This award seems to be making the rounds, so some of you may be getting it for the second time. But it's still well-deserved. :)
