I am honored to announce that I have been blessed with another award! I mean, I just installed my Award shelf the other day, and already I’m adding to it! Thank you to Bailey Hammond who’s Over Yonder… (yes, she’s somewhere else, and that’s the name of her blog) for bestowing this honor upon me. The award is the “One Lovely Blog” award (hence the title of the article). And in accepting this award I need to list 15 (yes, FIFTEEN) other blogs that I think are also worthy of receiving it. Then each of these 15 will list 15 blogs, and so on.
Before I announce the winners, I have to say that a couple of months ago, this would have been impossible. I was still fairly new to blogging and was focusing my attention mainly on industry blogs (agents, publishing, etc.). Consequently, I knew of only a handful of writer blogs. Then along comes YA Highway and their Road Trip Wednesday. All of a sudden, my RSS is overflowing with great blogs from all my new writerly friends who leave me comments on my blog and whose blogs I visit and comment on. In short, mainly thanks to YA Highway, I’ve discovered what wonderfully supportive people writers are. And some of these people have agents and have their books in print–in hardcover even! But there are no ivory towers and egos.
So, in true Award Ceremony fashion, I want to thank everyone that’s ever commented on my blog. I really appreciate you taking the time to read my ramblings. And to those who are following, either via Google Friend Connect, or on your RSS reader, or by just randomly popping over every once in a while, thank you very much. I’ll try to keep the content interesting for you!
Now to my fifteen. There are various reasons why I’ve chosen these. It might be one of, or a combination of, the following: they’re well-written, they’re beautifully designed, they make me laugh, they make me think, or just that more people need to visit them because they deserve the exposure. Oh, and if any of these blogs have already received this award, just link to the article where you listed your 15. Unless you want to list another 15–that’s up to you!
