Clarion Alley 2012

Hi Lovies,

Guess what? OK you give? I have been nominated for the Respect meme44Award! This comes as a real surprise as I have been a little less present the last couple of months on the blog. It was just what I needed to get my flow back. Thank you to Lisa Amaya from Life of An El Paso Woman for nominating me. The Respect Award was created by Robert Goldstein. Here’s his take on the award:

meme42“The “Respect” Award is my personal award for fellow bloggers who consistently reach out to other bloggers, offer support, are kind, struggle to understand differences in people, and who treat themselves and other people with kindness and respect.

You don’t have to do anything for this award.

You can choose to copy the Award Picture and give the award to the people who have earned your respect or you can do nothing.

This is my way of saying thank you. You have earned my respect.”

Alright so here are my nominees: meme41

Pearls Before Swine

Mind Jo Business

Blogger Recognition Award!

Standard

blogger-recogntn-award

meme31My blogger friend Ritu from But I Smile Anyway has honored my blog with the Blogger Recognition Award! Woo Hoo! I am so excited to receive this award and it is new to me so it helps with my theme for the month of trying Something New! Thanks Ritu.

Okay, here are those infamous rules that every award comes with…

The Rules: meme33

  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to.
    Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
  • Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
  • Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
  • List who you’ve nominated in the post.
  • Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above).
  • Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them.
  • Provide a link to the award post you created. 
  • Provide a link to the original post on Edge Of Night. That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing!

meme32(Just Like)Starting Over…. That was a song back in the 80s by John Lennon and the title explains why I started writing my blog. I needed way to express my feelings coming out of a dark time in my life, a rebirth if you will. I was happy and refreshed and wanted to share my writing with someone other than myself. I had a dream to become a writer and decided it was time to pursue that passion. My first post was one about a subject I saw on television that sparked a concern in me and I haven’t looked back since.

Though I have only been doing this a little over a year and a half, I am enjoying the process and I have released my first novel, with my second almost ready for editing. With the love and support from my wonderful husband and the great readers I have made writing my new career. My advice to new bloggers is to stay true to who you are. There are people out there that think like you or admire the way you do things. The blogging world can have some sharks out there, but for the most part, the people you run across are great supporters and you will develop unlikely friendships from all over the world. Write and keep writing.

Dragon’s Loyalty Award!!

Standard

dragon award

meme19Happy Happy, Joy, Joy! I am glad to report that the lovely and talented Erika Kind has nominated my blog for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award!!! Thank you so much Erika.

What does that mean you might ask. Well I had to do some digging myself, but this is what I found:

“The Dragon’s Loyalty Award is an award for the loyal fan/commenter, whether the recipient is a fellow blogger or just a someone who follows and comments regularly.”

Well you can’t beat that! I love my followers and enjoy their comments even more. It is important to build relationships with a blog so this award ROCKS! meme9

The rules: meme8

  1. Thank the giver and link their blog to your post.
  2. Pass the award on to other bloggers of your choice and let them know that they have been nominated.
  3. Give 7 facts about yourself.

OK – As you know I hare rules, so here is where things get a little tricky. Since it is July(my birth month) and this week is SHARK Week, I decided to drop some Fun Facts about Sharks instead:

I will however follow the rule about passing the award along, but I refuse to acknowledge some of the people who do not accept awards. This time only, I am going to honor the people who really comment on my blog consistently even if they do not accept awards. You can accept or not, but I feel you deserve recognition anyway! meme22
