Awards, awards, awards!


Am I the worst or what? I've been getting some really wonderful awards from some great people here in blog land and haven't formally thanked anyone on my blog. I'm such a slug, but now I'm going to make up for my bad manners!

First of all, I'd like to thank Carla from My Little Corner... over at LiveJournal (where I have my other blog.) Carla and I got to know each other because we loved to make icons for LiveJournal, and then we both kind of morphed into readers and reviewers of books! Funny, isn't it, now we're too busy reading to be interested in making icons! *grin*

Carla has very kindly awarded me this award:



and most recently:



The rules to follow are:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I'm afraid I'm not passing this on to anyone in particular because I'm still pretty new in this blogger world, and I think those that I do know have this award already!

Another award I received - all the way back in January *blushing with shame* was from Michele at A Reader's Respite She has a great blog, and I am in awe of all that she does! Her blog is always very interesting. Thanks for thinking of me, in this most dubious of honors. ;)


Yesterday VampFan Girl at Lovin' Me Some Romance was kind enough to award me these two awards - aww! (Gives a little color to my blog as well!) She's got a great book review blog, and I also love her comments on my own! One of these days, I'll venture into the paranormal, but for now I'm still dedicated to mortal men! LOL!



The only requirement for this award is that you share it with whomever you like, sharing the love is always a good thing. The blog has to show only one characteristic, caring. So, start sharing this enchanted award with five other bloggers. Let your bloggers know they have received this enchanted award. (Remember, fairies are fickle wee things, don't incur their displeasure by ignoring their gift.)

I'm awarding this to two of my special friend's book blogs:

Whitelady3 at My Little Corner...
Renee O. at Renée's book and movie reviews

The other award is:



I'm not even sure how this one got started exactly, but I'll take it gladly and appreciate your thinking of me! This is what it's means:

The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their inspiring words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all...

*blush*

I'll pass on forwarding this on for now, since it seems like most everyone I know already has it! So, I reserve the right to pass it on at a later date! When I do, I'll update this post.

Another award is from DeSeRt RoSe BoOkLoGuE who was kind enough to award me with the Premio Dardos Award. I always enjoy her book blog and maybe one of these days I'll enter one of her gazillion challenges!



This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.

The rules to follow are:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

So now I'm passing this on..

15! Are you kidding? I barely know anyone yet - another one in which I reserve the right to pass this on at a later date!

So, again, a big thank you to everyone who made me feel so warm and fuzzy by presenting me with these awards, especially since I'm so relatively new in the world of romance!

Frankly, I think I deserve an award just for posting this complicated post! Sheesh! I need a glass of wine after this one!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thank you for the offer, Lea, I'll keep it in mind. I'll have to check it out and see what the three columns is really like - when I do decide to make a change - you'll be the first to know! Thanks for offering!
