Awards- And Not the MTV Movie Ones

If you've noticed my silence on your blogs this past week, its because I've been sick. Yucky time here at the Wolfley house. But I guess I should get sick more often, because all of a sudden I've been given some blog awards.

And to that I've got to say WOW! (That's right- capitalized with an exclamation point.) I never expected this little blog to get followers, much less awards from followers.

Thanks to Danyelle of Myth-Takes and Kimberly of Zook Book Nook (which is the coolest blog name ever, IMO) for giving me the One Lovely Blog award. Thank you both!

And to make everything even more special, Robyn of Putting Pen to Paper gave me this Este Blog investe e acredita na...PROXIMIDADE! award. I have no idea what that means in English, but it says:

These blogs invests and believes in the proximity - nearness in space, time and relationships, they are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends, they are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.

Which I think is pretty cool to get. So big thank you to Robyn!

I know I'm supposed to pass them along. But there are so many wonderful bloggers to choose from, and I'm the kind of person who breaks the chain letter even though it will cause me to grow fungus on my face, and never find my one true love, and get a hex of apocalyptic proportions. (Some people call me brave, I prefer lazy!) So I will ponder some more about who to give these awards to, but I am committed to not be the breaker of the chain.

And yes- I can be bribed by chocolate, pistachios, and Nutty Bars.

But in all seriousness, thank you to these wonderful ladies. I have truly been amazed by how kind and generous the writing community is. I have met so many amazing writers who provide me with a new outlook, motivation, and support.

Thanks goes out to all of you!

What is your favorite thing about being part of the writing community?

Congrats on the award and my sympathies with being sick. There should be a law against illness in the summer months. Take care of yourself!

The best thing. The best thing is that for the first time in all my thirty eight years, I feel like I found my "people" Corny or not... it just is.

Congrats on the awards.

I live in a small town and don't have much of a writing community here. I love to reach out online to those on the same journey as me. Like attracts like, right?

CONGRATS! I love awards. You deserve those ones! I really do enjoy your blog, and I can see others do as well. :)

Glad you are feeling better!

I like the kind thought of an award...so wonderful. But, honestly, I can't bring myself to pass them along because of the choosing issue. I'm horrible at decisions and forever afraid of hurting feelings.

Being sick is no fun!

The best thing about the writing community is definitely the writers, er, the people. ;-)

Glad you're feeling better. Congrats on the well-deserved awards. :)

My fav part is meeting new friends and winning gift cards (big smile).
