Time to pass out a few awards I've been hoarding and to share links of some amazing bloggers! Okay, now I can't remember specifically who gave me what when, as I said I've been hoarding these babies, but what I'll do is pass them out and list awardees after and hopefully this covers everything. First is the sweet little bear And this goes to some sweet bloggers who I hope you will check out and follow if you're not already:
Sweet Glynis is taking time off from her blog to spend more time with her very ill friend.
Faith Hough is so sweet she helped her writer husband set up his blog.
Ann at Inkpots and Quills always seems to write with a smile!
Now for the sunshine award:
Old Kitty always brings sunshine into my life with her posts and her comments.
Melissa J. Cunningham is the sunniest, happiest person ever!
Suz Korb is sunny AND funny!
Alex Fleetwood brightens my day with updates on the goings on in Hampshire. She's another British blogger I love to visit!
Now here's the award I keep getting, cuz maybe I'm a little wordy and over the top in my blog posting lol?
So check out these prolific bloggers because they are so cool!
Jen at unedited blogs a lot AND writes a lot! Full of energy is this girl! Her blog is so fun.
The Alliterative Allomorph has been writing daily A - Z posts that are insightful, interesting and intense (how's that alliteration?) AND she lives in Greece!
Theresa Millstein writes daily about teaching, writing, and so many fascinating topics and always has fantastic quotable quotes to boot.
Fran's posts are fresh, hilarious and did you know she went on vacation to Tenby?
All of you are awesomesauce but I had to force myself to pick and choose, oh so hard to do!
If you haven't checked out Plain Jane's blog yet you must! Because she is a nonwriter (she says) who loves to follow writer blogs. She posts about ordinary things in a funny cute way.
Kimberly Franklin is funny and energetic and funny and cute. And did I say funny?
Mary McDonald's blog is one of my new discoveries and I love it for her refreshing honesty. She even admits to not caring much about shoes!! You gotta respect that!
Barbara Scully's awesomesauce kitchen table is one of my favorite stops in Dublin!
Now for the writer blogs who I think seriously are going to have something to crow about some day because they are incredible writers!! Actually all of you can take this one and crow your heads off because you are amazing, but these are the ones I picked today:
Jayne at A Novice Novelist
Brigid at sort of writing
Amy Saia, and her post on tornadoes is here, if you missed it.
If I missed passing out any awards that were bestowed on me, I apologize. And I apologize for not giving the links of those who gave me the awards, but I get easily confused in my dotage and so thought it would be best to simplify. Go check out these blogs, they are all fantastic!!
