Firstly, I'd like to give a big thank you to Marie and Vanilla for giving me this award. The award goes to bloggers who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. The description on the original post is a bit more in depth, and you can read it all here, but for now according to the rules I am supposed to pass it on to 5 more bloggers.
Can I just say now that if you are on my blogroll then it’s precisely because you are a thoughtful blogger that you are there and I’m sorry I can’t choose you all. Having said that, there’s quite a few of these little badges popping up, so if you’ve recently had one, ehm, I’m sorry but I want to share the pleasure of receiving one of these little things, so I haven’t picked you again.
So finally to the point, ta ta ta tahhh da da da da da daaaaaaahh:
Jude from Jude’s Writing Corner – she is a positive little bean in the blog universe, gives good advice about writing and doesn’t seem to moan about her job at all (scratching my head in confusion there)!
Kyklops – He’s a Canadian living in Japan and he’s got a bad shoulder, but he still had time to show me how to put italics in my comments box yesterday (and being such a good pupil you may notice that I’ve excelled and can now do bold too).
Apprentice at My Gap Year – She always replies to my comments over at her blog and she even comes over here and leaves lovely comments. She also takes beautiful photographs that make me think and is kind enough to introduce her readers to new things like renga and haiban.
Shameless – My fellow kind of Frenchie blogger. He writes very thoughtful posts, poems and short stories and is always completely positive and courteous and he gave away all his lions.
And lastly (but definitely not least) Mr. Moon Topples – he’s a bit quiet at the mo and maybe this might tempt him out, but if not no matter. He’s one of those thoughtful, creative, multi-talented types who has always made me feel more than welcome over at his blog.
So have a nice Friday all. I’m feeling all glowy from my awards and having a really good writing day yesterday. I was so pleased with myself that I thought I would treat myself with episode 18 of Heroes that I had been putting off because I knew that if I allowed myself to watch it, then I would want to watch 19 and it would become a distraction and not a treat. So could I find it anywhere? Could I hell. Bum, bum, bum, bum.
PS I also got this award from Scarlett as well, but I didn't realise until after I had put up this post.
