I've been doing this blog for, what? About a month? Still in its infancy, Word Wanderings has received an award!
I was tickled pink when Katie Weiland of WordPlay e-mailed me earlier this week to let me know she'd selected Word Wanderings as one of the recipients of the 'Love Ya' award! Katie and I've been cyber-buddies for a while, having met through ChristianWriters quite a while ago. She's taught me a lot about writing and helped critique some of my work in the process. She's very sweet to award me this!
The rules of the award are:
The “Love Ya” Award states: These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to other bloggers who must choose to pass it on and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award!Truth be told, I'm so new to this blog thing that I wasn't 100% sure who to give this award to, so I've given myself some time to think it through. That being said, I've decided to give this award to the following folks:
Lynn Mosher at Heading Home. Like Katie, I've gotten to know Lynn through ChristianWriters, as well as Facebook. She's a real sweetheart and offers a lot of encouragement. Her blog is very inspirational. Thanks, Lynn!
If it weren't for the ladies at AuthorCulture--Katie Weiland, Lynnette Bonner, and Linda Yezak--I may not have started Word Wanderings. All three prodded me along in their various ways over at CW, giving me the encouragement I needed to take that next crucial step. I'm learning a lot from their blog--and their Fabulously Fun Friday's are a wonderful way to lighten up the day and get ready for the weekend! Thanks ladies!
My final award winner is C. Maggie Woychik with Encouraging Emerging Authors. I must say that two months ago, I didn't know Maggie. I didn't know her through CW, though she's been around the forum for a while. I met her randomly through Katie via Facebook. After learning that her blog was geared towards homeschooled writers, and since I was homeschooled for a time, we kind of hit it off. She was also instrumental in encouraging me to give blogging a shot.
So, thank you all, ladies! And, I hope you have fun spreadin' the love!
Until next time,
Okay, so why do I suddenly have the urge to start singing 'All You Need Is Love' by the Beatles??? :D -- LS --
