Writing My Life

Now and Then

“You like me. You REALLY like me.”


It’s a major award!

~ Mr. Parker from A Christmas Story

I have been presented with my first blogger award EV-er! And I love the title of award: The Circle of Friends. That’s one thing I truly enjoy about blogging – the creation of a circle of friends, most of whom we meet in the blog-o-sphere. And these friends are often very different from our “reality” buddies – our neighbors, our colleagues, etc. This circle of friends like to reflect, write, and comment about lots ‘o stuff that is ofttimes of little interest to your face-2-face friends. My family, including my husband, rarely reads my blogs – any of them. Sometimes I “force-read” a post to the big guy, but most of the time I don’t. Sniff, sniff.

My colleague/friend/blogger buddy Amy Jo Lavin at Ramblings of a Novice Writer presented me with the much appreciated award. She is seriously amazing. She has written 1 1/2 novels; she hosts a blog that is fun to read, and she even issues challenges and hosts contests; plus she teaches school and mothers little boys – her own! Now my job is to present this award to 5 more bloggers, and so here are the recipients I have chosen:

I visit these blogs often, and all the creators have either responded on my blog or replied to my comments on their blogs. These women are talented. They represent a range of ages from youngsters to oldsters. But they all love writing, and I love what they bring to my life. Visit their sites and see for yourself!

  1. Congratulations! You deserve it.

    • Thank you, Catherine. You KNOW I would have presented it to you had you not already been the recipient. You are very TERRIFIC, you know! I’m so glad I found your site. πŸ™‚

  2. Yay for you!!! So exciting! And so deserved. Remember how Susan Lucci had to wait like 17 or 19 years to be recognized?? So glad you didn’t have to wait that long. And that you didn’t have to do lots of hair flips and over-the-shoulder speaking in order to win. Love you!

  3. Congrats and thank you for passing it on to me! If someone else had given it to me, you would’ve been one of my 5. πŸ™‚ Thanks for being a blogger friend.

    • You’re too sweet, and we’ve only been hanging out for a few weeks! There will be a day when we meet. I know it! Are you going to WRITING FOR CHARITY? I hope so!

  4. Yay! Our first award! I am so honored.

    • Are you kidding me? I thought you were just too humble to copy and paste all the many awards you’ve garnered! You two are super-deserving, and I’m glad I was the first to present your first major blogging award! πŸ™‚
