Awarded the I Love Your Blog - and Paying it Forward

You may have noticed the new award sporting on the side bar, (and above). Shaunesay nominated me for the award. How cool is that?

Now here are the rules. Come on, you knew there’d be rules. We’re writers for goodness sakes. We always have rules. We learn them and learn them well and then—we break them. Heehee.

Here are the rules for the award -

1) Add the logo of the award to your blog (Did that one quick. VBG)

2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you (Yep, did that first thing in the post. Gotta give props where they’re due)

3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs (See below the rules for this one)

4) Add links to those blogs on your blog (Um, they’re already there)

5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs (This is part of the fun)

Below are seven great blogs. Some have been blogging for a while and some are new to the land of blog. Most of them are writers, but a few are bloggers who…well, read below and you’ll find out.

I hereby award the following blogs:

Hawk - her blog is relatively new and yet it’s one I check each week to see what goodies she’s sharing with us. Everything for ghost, to health to really cool cars. She’s currently posting once a week, getting her feet wet so to speak, but this is a must read blog. Check it out.

Karen Lingefelt - Her blog is glimpse into her life. Not always perfect, but always love abounds. Her words draw you into her world where you’ll laugh one minute and sigh with wonder the next.

Stephie Smith - Not only does she have a great blog, but for those who want to be in know for upcoming contest, this is the place to go.

Patricia - Her blog will keep you up to date on new releases and you’ll travel her writing journey along the way. Tips galore can be found here.

Alyssa Goodnight - Alyssa shares her writing life and the joys cooking, tending to her family and so much more.

Writers At Play - Published Authors, Unpublished but working hard towards their dream, an Editor, and friends, make up this blog. You’ll find writing tips, sexy guys, give a ways, interviews with other authors, agents, and editors. All in all this is a fabulous must read blog.

CL Wilson - Cheryl’s entire website is amazing. The graphics alone could you keep there for hours. You’ll find info on her upcoming signings, how she does her world building and all around great stuff.

Check them all out and then come back and leave your comments. Oh and don’t forget about Kimberly Killion’s book, Her One Desire. Your comments left on today’s post will go in the proverbial randomizer’s hat along with the others for Friday’s winner.

WW's and PD's,

Oh, Vicki, a million hugs! You've honored me, drawn a little tear from my eye, and made my whole week.

Now I have to figure it out . . . chaos is sure to ensue!

You're the best!

Vicki, thank you so much for nominating my blog. Unfortunately, I have a big problem. None of the people I want to nominate will let me nominate them. I went ahead and asked this time because I named some bloggers previously in another blog tag and some were not happy campers (time it takes, etc.). So I am just going to enjoy your kind words and fail in my duty. HOWEVER, I DO have my favorite blogs listed in a blog roll on my blog (and yours is one of them!)
