Thank you, Fitnessgrad, for the Lovely Blog Award you bestowed upon me last year in July. Excuse my tardiness, but as I’ve said before – better late than never.

Now that we’re into February, I’d like to start this month with the theme of love. As I’m wont to do, I’m changing the rules for this award where you normally tell readers about yourself. Rather than answering questions about me and nominating a select few of my fellow bloggers for the award, I’d like to turn this into a Lovefest.

I invite you to comment about something, someone, or anything you love, and leave your blog link below to give others the opportunity to fall in love with your site.

I wish you all a lovely bloggin’ time. Have a wonderful weekend!

One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Award

THANK YOU to Charles French for nominating me for the Lovely Blog Award over four months ago.

The Rules:
*Thank the person who nominated you, and give a link to his/her blog
*List the rules
*Display the image of the award on your post
*List seven facts about yourself (me, myself, and I):

  • I am human (I make mistakes)
  • I am woman (hear me roar)
  • I read (whenever I can)
  • I write (not the songs, the stories)
  • I work (hard for the money)
  • I eat (like a pig)
  • I sleep (like a baby)

The last rule is to nominate so many people, but I don’t really like leaving out any one and many of you are award free. Instead, I would like to tell you more about the lovely blogger who honored me with the award. Most of you probably know him by now since he’s been around the blogosphere for a while. He’s got a brand new horror book just in time for Halloween. Great looking cover too:


You Say Liebster, I say Lobster

Belated thanks to serendipitous writer, Ellie the Old Soul, Diego, and fitness9555  for nominating me for the Liebster Award. Since I had already been nominated before and gone through the process, I am doing something different here.

In keeping with the summer theme, I give to the four wonderful bloggers who nominated me a symbolic lobster meal.  Feast away and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Thank you all again!

Double Awards

Earlier this year, one of our fellow bloggers, Charles French, created the Blogger Appreciation Award to show his appreciation for the wonderful bloggers he met. He was kind enough to nominate me as one of such bloggers. Thank YOU.

A few days ago, another fellow blogger, Agatha Chocolats, was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award. She too was kind enough to nominate me for this award. Thank YOU.

Listed below are the rules for each of these thoughtful awards. Following the rules are my nominees for both awards. The nominees have the option to respond to one or both. Or, they can simply bask in glory and not do anything. No offense will be taken by me.

Why I Positively Started Blogging
To share with you what I can do
Be it writing a ditty, poem,
Vignette, or a story or two
I hope you find something that may
Amuse or inspire you

Words of Advice
If you’re blogging for pleasure
No need to feel you’re under any pressure
To post daily,
Don’t worry about pleasing everyone
And always be respectful of our fellow bloggers.
