Blog Awards

Bloggers are a supportive group. And one of the ways they support each other is to pass awards around.  Some time ago I

proudly displayed the Sisterhood Award.  Yesterday when I was checking traffic, I found that some people clicked over from the site of Ellen Barone and I wondered why, so I wandered over to Ellen’s site.

And there I discovered the Lovely Blog Award. Ellen had included A Traveler’s Library among the fifteen blogs she awarded this blog to.

The rules for this award 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.

3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I thought it might be quite a challenge to list fifteen blogs that I had newly discovered, and I confess that some on the following list have been friends for a while. Here are the blogs that I find lovely, and I hope that you may enjoy some of them yourself.

Will My Dog Hate Me? asks Edie Jarolim, author of a humorous dog owner’s book to be released in September.

  2. Thank you so much, Vera Marie! That is so kind and thoughtful. Now I have to get back to updating my blog. It’s fallen by the wayside over the last few weeks, as I’ve been swamped with a huge editing project. You’ve inspired me to get back to business. :-)

  3. I am touched and honored to get this award — and to be in the company of other bloggers I admire, including My Itchy Travel Feet and Facing the Street. Thank you. It made my day (or at least provided a bright spot; with an estimate of a roof repair of $2,200 nothing could quite make it…)
