Indyeah, you gave me my very first blog award -- thank you so much! :) You inspired this award-giving bonanza of mine. Indyeah is someone I met only recently, but not a day passes that I do not visit her blog, CONSIDER IT CRASHED. Her topics range from the beauty of her homeland, India, to events occurring halfway around the world. Regardless of her theme, each of her posts are an inspiration. A true must-read. You get the "Inspiration Award" from me.
I like to think of Marc's blog, Daily Writing Practice, as my very own personal writing boot camp. Every day he presents a new writing exercise, with prompts as varied and various as dead batteries, clocks, and strange noises. I credit him for helping me get my Muse back in shape. Thanks, Marc! You get the "Intellectual Blogger Award" from me.
April has probably the best blog title I've ever seen, Mistress of Well-Intentioned Indecision. Her blog is witty, insightful, and she's a formidable writer to boot, having written a novel this past November for NaNoWriMo. (I just know I butchered that acronym. Oh well.) My hat's off to you, April, for being one of the most creative bloggers I know. You get the "Kreativ Blogger Award" from me.
ALRO is yet another blogger who wrote a novel this past November. Way to go ALRO! His blog, ALRO's Mayhem, is part fictional experimentation, part music/gaming discussion, and 100% excellent. You rock, ALRO! :) You get the "Excellent Award" from me.
This blog, Nancy's Nonsense of Nothingness, is one that is sure to keep you in stitches. You are one funny woman, Nancy Face! Let me know when you decide to tour as a stand-up comedienne, because I'll be sitting front row. You get the "Funniest Blog Award" from me.
Ann Marie's blog, An Old Fashioned Girl, caters to my love of all things crafty and girly-girl. True to her blog's name, Ann Marie really is an old fashioned girl. She's got a heart of gold and a warmhearted personality that comes across in both her blog posts and her comments on other blogs. Definitely the nicest blogger I know! :) You get the "Nice Matters Award" from me.
Lala, you get this award because I think your blog, My castle in Spain, is one of the best around, if not the best. It's got gorgeous pictures, gorgeous writing, pretty much everything you could ask for in a blog. I'm so happy I decided to click on it when it was featured as a Blog of Note, and I can see why you were chosen by Blogger. You get my "Best Blog Award!"
